Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the verbally inspired, the only infallible, authoritative
Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16-17; 1 Peter 1:20-21)

We believe that there is only one God, the source, support, and end of all things, eternally subsistent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1; John 10:30, 37-38)

We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the Father’s right hand, and in His intercession for us there now, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Isaiah 7:14; Act 1:11; Revelations 19: 11-16)

We believe that man is sinful by nature and lost by divine decree and therefore, in need of the convicting and regenerating ministry of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 3:19-23; John 3:16-19, 5:24; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5-6)

We believe in the present and continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit. He convicts the sinner, regenerates one who believes, indwells, seals, instructs, reproves, and guides the believer, and that He fills and controls every life who is wholly yielded to Him. (Ephesians 4:30, 5:18; I Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20)

We believe that salvation is the gift of God offered to man by His grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8,9; Titus 3:5-6)

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the saved unto life, the unsaved unto judgment and everlasting damnation, and the rapture of the saints at the second coming of Jesus Christ. (John 5:28-29; Revelation 20:12-15; Matthew 25:46; Romans 6:23; I Thessalonians 4:13-18)

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28)

We believe in the creation of man by the direct act of God. (Genesis 1:26, 5:2; Colossians 1:16-17)
