Statement of Faith
We believe that the Holy Bible, consisting of the sixty six books of the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired and infallible word of God, communicated by God through Spirit-inspired men, without error in their original writings, containing the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of man along with the divine and authoritative teachings for Christian faith and life. We also believe that the interpretation of Scripture must be based on the meaning of the text as intended by God and the human author.
We believe in the one, true, eternal, and living God, self-existing in three distinct Persons - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We believe God is the creator and sustainer of all creation.
We believe that Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary; that in Him perfect humanity and deity are found in one Person; that He is the only mediator between God and man; that He was crucified on the cross and His blood was shed for the sins of all mankind; that all who believe in Him are forgiven of their sins; that He was raised from the dead on the third day, ascended into heaven and will return to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Godhead, equal in honor and glory with the Father and the Son; that His ministry is to convict men of their sins, lead them to a saving faith in Christ, regenerate and indwell believers at the point of salvation, and continue to indwell, guide, teach, discipline, comfort and empower believers for godly living and service.
We believe that man was created in the image of God; that in Adam all men have fallen into sin, and are in need of God's salvation. We believe that salvation is solely the work of God, through the finished work of Christ on the cross once and for all as the atonement for the sins of men; that all who believe in Christ are justified by faith. We believe that there shall be a bodily resurrection of those who believe to eternal life, and of those who do not believe to eternal punishment. We believe that God is the creator of human beings in His image, male and female. We believe that God instituted marriage as between one man and one woman. This marriage should be a life-long commitment between the husband and the wife in a caring, faithful and exclusive union.
