Doctrinal Statement - Short Version

There is one true God who has created all things. He is infinitely perfect and exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Scripture (both Old and New Testaments), as the inspired word of God, is without error in the original writings and provides the basis for our faith in Jesus Christ. The Scripture clearly reveals salvation only through faith in Jesus Christ, who is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross to atone for our sins, rose bodily from the dead, and is preparing a place for those who have received Him. The Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, convict men of sin, and regenerate the believing sinner who He then indwells, guides, instructs, and empowers for Godly living and service.

Man was created in the image of God and he, like all creation, did not evolve from "lower" forms. Man fell into sin, and in so doing, caused the whole creation to be put into the bondage of sin and corruption. God created everything in six literal days, and man wrecked it in but a moment. On the brighter side, God will restore His creation in the near future when He creates a new heaven and new earth.
