God has made Himself known to the world in
Jesus Christ, the Scriptures and creation.
Doctrine of Creation and Providence
We believe that God created the world from nothing
and governs all things at all times in all places.
Doctrine of Humanity

of God and possesses intrinsic dignity and worth.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life... - John 3:16

leaving the world in desperate need of salvation.

through faith alone in Christ alone.

sent into the world to shine forth the glory of God.
