We believe in the absolute deity and the perfect humanity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His substitutionary death, His bodily resurrection, and ascension into Heaven.

We believe in the fall of man, making all mankind sinners and the necessity of the new birth through faith in God’s grace found in Jesus Christ.
