Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible is inspired by God, and is the only infallible, authoritative Word of God (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21).
We believe there is only one God, who exists eternally in three equal persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and who created the heavens and the earth and all that is in them by the power of His spoken word (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 1: 1-3; John 10:30).
We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:37-38); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23: Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His substitutionary death (I Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9); His physical resurrection (John 11:25: I Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); and His personal return in power and glory to judge the living and the dead (Acts 1:11; Revelation 20:11-15; Revelation 22:12).
We believe that man was created by God in His own image (Genesis 1:27), but was spiritually separated from God because of sin (Romans 3:23), and is incapable of being reconciled to God apart from the work of Christ on the cross (Romans 5:6).
We believe in the absolute necessity of rebirth by the Holy Spirit for salvation; and that people justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God‘s grace and through faith alone are we saved (John 3:16-19; John 5:24; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5).
We believe in the physical resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved will rise to eternal life, and those that are lost to eternal punishment (John 5:28-29).
We believe that the Church is the body of born-again believers in fellowship with Christ and with fellow believers (Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12:12-13).
We believe in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, who indwells believers enabling them to live a Godly life (Romans 8:13-14; I Corinthians 3:16; I Corinthians 6: 19-20; Ephesians 4:30).
