What We Believe
1. We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Old and New Testament.

3. We believe in one triune God who eternally exists in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
4. We believe that God created the world in six literal twenty-four hour days.

6. We believe that Christ died for the sins of all mankind and that salvation is by grace, through faith alone, based upon the finished work of Christ on the cross.

8. We believe in the reality of Heaven and Hell which are the only two eternal abodes prepared by God for man's soul.
