What We Believe

We believe that the original manuscripts of the bible were divinely inspired but that they are not superior to the Eternal Word from which it came.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that we are made right with God by what we do and not by faith alone.

We believe that for the salvation of lost, sinful persons, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

Essential Truths

Drafted by Rufus Jones and James Wood

The vital principle of the Christian faith is the truth that man’s salvation and higher life are personal matters between the individual soul and God.

Salvation is deliverance from sin and the possession of spiritual life. This comes through a personal faith in Jesus Christ as the Savior, who, through His love and sacrifice draws us to Him.

Conviction for sin is awakened by the operation of the Holy Spirit causing the soul to feel its need of reconciliation with God. When Christ is seen as the only hope of salvation, and a person yields to Him, he is brought into newness of life, and realizes that their relationship to God has become an actual reality. This transformation is wrought without the necessary agency of any human priest, or ordinance, or ceremony whatsoever. A changed nature and life bear witness to this new relation to Him.

The whole spiritual life grows out of the soul’s relation to God and its co-operation with Him, not from any outward or traditional observances.
