OUR BELIEFS

We believe that the Holy Bible is the  Word of God and that - when properly understood - it is reliable and infallible.  We believe this Book was written by men as they were inspired by the Holy Spirit, to write in their own words, what He wanted them to write.  We also believe it is powerful and able to instruct, rebuke, exhort and change a person's life.  The Bible is sacred and central to our faith.  We receive it as revealed in PSALM 119; 2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17; HEBREWS 4:12 and 2 PETER 1:20-21.
