Faith Statement

Faith Statement
We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30).

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, and inerrant Word of God. (II Timothy 3:15-17, II Peter 1:21).

We believe in the substitutionary death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for all sinners. Romans 4:25

We believe in eternal life for all who repent and believe in Him and eternal death for all who reject Him. Matthew 25:46; Luke 13:3

We believe in a hearty acceptance that Jesus is the Lord of our lives when we receive Him as our Savior. Romans 10:9, 10; Colossians 2:6; John 3:3

We believe in the personal, visible and bodily return of Jesus Christ to the earth. Acts 1:10, 11; I Thessalonians 4:14-18

We believe that Jesus has provided for and commanded in Scripture that every believer, be filled or baptized with the Holy Spirit. This sanctifying truth is both an event and a continuing process in the life of the believer. Acts 9:17; Ephesians 5:18. A life of Godly character and maturity should be evident as one grows in the Lord.

We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:34-35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return to earth in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11-16).

We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of the human nature, and that all are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God's grace through faith alone are we saved (John 3:16-19; 5:24, Romans 3:23; 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5).

We believe in the body’s mandate to take responsibility for spreading the gospel to every tribe, tongue, people and nation. (Matthew 28:19, 20; Mark 16:15, 16; Acts 1:8).

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14, I Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30; 5:18).
