In Summary We Believe:

...the Bible is the Word of God inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error (II Timothy 3:16). Everything it teaches is to be believed, everything it commands is to be obeyed, and everything it promises is to be trusted. (Romans 3:4)

...God is a Triune God, three persons in one being: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19)

...God is sovereign over all things in heaven and in earth. He created the world and all it contains in six, 24 hour days (Exodus 20:11) and continues to uphold and govern it according to His plan. No creature or event is outside His eternal plan. The ultimate purpose of His creation is the revelation and glory of Himself.

...God is sovereign in salvation (Hebrews 12:2) Because God is perfectly holy and righteous, He punishes every sin. We, who are born spiritually dead and unable to do any good, are saved only by God's grace (Ephesians 2:1-8) He has chosen a people from before the creation of the world to be saved by the work of His Son, Jesus Christ on the cross (Ephesians 1:4,5). He regenerates our sinful hearts through the work of the Holy Spirit (John 3:3-8) and gives us faith to believe that we are saved by Jesus Christ and not by our own good works (Ephesians 2:9) He also gives us grace to serve Him in our daily life.

...God is a God of love and demonstrates it through the death of Christ on the cross (Romans 5:8) Jesus endured the eternal punishment His people deserved by dying on the cross. Jesus arose from the dead and now reigns in heaven (Romans 4:25)

...Jesus is coming again to judge the living and those who have died (II Timothy 4:5) Those who believed on Him will live forever with Him in heaven and those who have not believed on Him will suffer God's just and eternal wrath in hell (Revelation 20:11-15)
