Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative and inerrant Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21)
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Mathew 28:19, John 10:30)
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, fully God and fully man, who was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died as a complete and substitutionary payment for our sin, rose from the dead in victory over sin and death and ascended into heaven where He intercedes with the Father for the believers. (John 3:16, Isaiah 7:14, Luke 1:34-35, Hebrews 4:15, I Corinthians 15:3-4, Mark 16:19, Acts 1:11)
We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and only by God’s grace through faith alone are we saved. (John 3:16-19, Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-9)
We believe that humanity was created in perfection, but Adam and Eve, our first parents, fell into sin. Therefore, every person is born in sin and is corrupted in their spirits, thoughts, emotions, and wills. Apart from the work of God, we are spiritually helpless and dead in sin. (Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23)
We believe in the resurrection of the saved and the lost. Those that are saved unto the resurrection of life and those that are lost unto the resurrection of condemnation. (John 5:28-29)
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the believer is sealed until the day of redemption and by whose filling the believer is empowered to live a life of purity and godliness. (Romans 8:13-14, Ephesians 4:30, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
