Statement of Faith

1. The Bible alone is the inspired and infallible Word of God and constitutes completed and final revelation.

We believe the Bible is the supreme and final authority for faith and life.
II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21.

2. God alone is self-existent and has existed from all eternity in three eternal and co-equalpersons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ was God,came in human flesh, being fully God and fully man except without sin.
Genesis 1:1; John 1:1; John 10:30, 37-38.
3. In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless Life. His miracles.
His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, and His imminent bodily return in power and glory. Luke 1: 30-35; John 1:1-12; Acts 2:22-36.
4. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, and everything that God created was good.

Yet His perfect creation was marred by sin. Through Adam sin, death, and decay entered into this world.
Genesis 1:1, 31; Genesis 2:16-17; Genesis 3:6-10, 23; Romans 5:12; Romans 8:20-21.

5. That all men are in violation of God’s righteousness requirements and His Holy character both by nature and are therefore under His wrath and just condemnation. Because of God’s infinite love and mercy, He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to bear the penalty of our sins.
The central purpose of the coming of Jesus Christ was to atone for our sins through His substitutionary death on the cross. The successful accomplishment of which was attested to by His subsequent visible bodily resurrection.
Romans 3:19, 25-26; Romans 5:6-8; Ephesians 2:1, 4-5; I Corinthians 15:3-6; II Corinthians 5:21.
6. That Salvation is offered as a gift free to the sinner.
This gift must be responded to individually in faith, not trusting in any personal works whatsoever, but in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone. Romans 3:23; John 3:16; Romans 3:21-24; Romans 10:9; Ephesians 2:8-9.
7. That the Holy Spirit is the Comforter and Counselor, promised by Jesus Christ, who came upon the church at Pentecost and indwells every believer.

He is co-equal with the Father and the Son. We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to convict man of sin, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service. We believe that it is the power of the Holy Spirit which enables individual Christians to live in accord with God’s will.
John 14:16-17, 26; Romans 8:9-11; Romans 12:2-3; Galatians 3:3; Philippians 2:13.
