Our Beliefs

We believe the Bible to be, not man’s account of his efforts to find God, but rather an account of God’s effort to reveal himself for man. We believe that the Holy Bible was written by man; divinely inspired by God, influenced by the Holy Spirit, and that scriptures both old and new testaments contain all things necessary to salvation.
