Everyone is welcome at the cross!

Our Most Basic Beliefs

1. The Bible

We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men controlled by the Holy Spirit; that it has truth without any admixture of error for its matter; and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the age, the only complete and final revelation of the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions shall be tried. By "Holy Bible," we mean that collection of sixty-six books, from Genesis to Revelation, which, as originally written, does not contain and convey the word of God, but IS the very Word of God. The King James Version of the Bible shall be the official and only translation used by the church. (Psalm 119:105, 130, 160; II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:19-21)

2. The Trinity

We believe that there is one, and only one, living and true God, and infinite, intelligent Spirit, the maker and supreme ruler of heaven and earth; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption. (I Corinthians 8:6; Ephesians 4:6; John 4:24; Matthew 28:19; I John 5:4-7; I Corinthians 12:4-6)

3. The Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Ghost in a miraculous manner; born of Mary, a virgin, and that He is both the Son of God and God, the Son. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:35; Galatians 4:4)

4. Salvation By Grace Through Faith

We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace through the mediatorial office of the Son of God, Who by the appointment of the Father, freely took upon Him our nature, yet without sin honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and by His death made a full and vicarious atonement for our sins; having risen from the dead, He is now enthroned in heaven. He is the compassionate and all-sufficient Saviour. (John 3:16; Isaiah 53:4-7; Romans 3:25; Ephesians 2:8; I Corinthians 15:3, 20; I Peter 2:24; 3:18; Hebrews 7:25; 9:12-15)

We believe that in order to be saved, sinners must be born again; that the new birth is a new creation in Jesus Christ; that it is instantaneous and not a process; that in the new birth the one dead in trespasses and in sins is made a partaker of the divine nature and receives eternal life, the free gift of God. (John 3:3; II Corinthians 5:17, 19; I John 5:1; Acts 16:30-33; II Peter 1:4; Colossians 2:13)

5. The Natural Condition of Man

We believe that man was created in innocence under the law of his Maker, but by voluntary transgression fell from his sinless and happy state; in consequence of which, all mankind are now sinners, not by constraint, but by choice; and therefore under the just condemnation without defense or excuse. (Genesis 3:1-6; Romans 5:15-19; Romans 3:10-19; Ephesians 2:1-3)
