WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in the Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy; and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

We believe in One God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in our Lord Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His *vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His *mediatorial work and His personal *imminent return in power and glory.
