Statement of Faith

We believe…

  • that there is one God, an infinite, eternal spiritual Being who is all-powerful, all-knowing, and everywhere present; the Creator and Sustainer of the universe; that He eternally exists in perfect loving relationship as the three Persons of the Godhead: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each Person being co-equal and co-eternal in majesty, glory, power and perfection;
  • that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired word of God, inerrant in the original documents and of final authority in all matters of faith and practice;
  • in the full deity and perfect humanity of our Lord, that He is true God and true Man, existent as one Person in two Natures; that Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary;
  • in His representative and substitutionary sacrifice, His bodily resurrection from the dead, His ascension to the Father’s right hand, His present high priestly ministry; We anticipate His personal return in power and glory;
  • in the Fall of humanity which resulted from the disobedience of our original parents, and that in consequence all men are born with sinful natures, and are incapable of meriting salvation;
  • in regeneration and the new birth, which is absolutely necessary for the salvation of lost mankind; that salvation is a free gift of God’s grace received by personal faith through Christ Jesus and accomplished through the work of the Holy Spirit; that justification, redemption, forgiveness of sins, and adoption as sons of God is available to all who will believe;
  • in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life; that the Holy Spirit equips believers to be effective as disciples of Jesus Christ through His gifts and by His active power in the lives of believers;
  • in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust: those who are saved to everlasting blessedness and eternal with God, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation;
  • that the universal church is composed of all true believers in Christ Jesus who are united in Him and to one another by the indwelling Holy Spirit. The chief functions of the church are to worship God and witness for the Lord Jesus Christ until He returns;
  • the local church is composed of a group of believers in a specific locality who gather in Christ’s name for the breaking of bread, prayers, fellowship and teaching; that while God works in and through various Christian ministries and organizations, the local church is God’s primary vehicle for accomplishing His purposes on the earth.
