We believe in one God, the Creator of all things, who reveals Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully human at the same time, who became a man in order to bring us salvation. We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is active in the world today showing us our sin, bringing the new birth to those who repent, making believers holy, and guiding into all truth as it is in Jesus. We believe the Bible is the Word of God. We believe everyone is born in sin, needing the Savior, and that everyone has chosen to sin against God by rebellion and disobedience--so, everyone needs God's forgiveness and cleansing and that salvation is offered to everyone through Christ. We believe God enables us to turn from sin, but does not force us to do so. Each person must repent, turn away from sin, and trust Christ. We believe that when we turn to Christ, all our past sins are erased and we are adopted into God's family. After this, we need the complete control of the Holy Spirit in our lives, who enables the believer to live a consistent Christian life. We believe the Church Universal is made up of all persons whose sins have been forgiven and that all believers need the church's support and fellowship. We believe baptism and the Lord's Supper are gifts from Christ that honor Him and nourish us. We also believe in God's healing power. We believe Jesus Christ is coming again.
