We believe the Bible (the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments) is the Word of God. As a "God-breathed" revelation, it is thus verbally inspired and completely without error (historically, scientifically, morally, and spiritually) in its original writings. Scripture reveals the being, nature, and character of God, the nature of God's creation, and especially His will for the salvation of human beings through Jesus Christ.
We believe that the physical universe, the realm of nature, is the visible creation of God. It declares God's existence and gives a trustworthy revelation of God's character and purpose. Properly understood, God's Word (Scripture) and God's world (nature), as two revelations (one verbal, one physical) from the same God, will never contradict each other.
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ will return to this earth, personally, bodily, and visibly to establish his glorious reign in a kingdom that will never end. As the sovereign Lord, He will resurrect and judge all humanity. Those who have received His offer of life through the Gospel will go to eternal blessings in heaven; those who have rejected it, to eternal conscious torment in hell. We look forward to the blessed hope, Christ's Second Coming in glory.

We are “day-age creationists”, which means that we see the six days of creation in Genesis 1 as long periods of time, rather than 24 hour periods. We see that the word for “day” in the Bible can literally mean longer periods of time, and that word is commonly used as such.
We are supporters of the science apologetics organization, Reasons To Believe www.reasons.org
. We are the founders of a local chapter of that organization http://www.reasons.org/chapters/spokane/index.shtml
