Statement of Faith
We believe Scripture as originally given in its entirety is the Word of God, verbally inspired and wholly without error. The Bible is the supreme final authority of faith, life and church activity. (2 Titus 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21, Romans 15:4, Hebrews 4:12, Psalms 19:7-11, Psalms 119:9, Romans 2:20)
We believe that one living, true God eternally exists in three distinct persons; Father (Romans 1:7), Son (Hebrews 1:1-2, John 1:1, John 10:30, Isaiah 9:6), and Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:9-10; 11), and that these possess the same nature, attributes, and glory. (Matthew 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14, John 14:9-10).
We believe that Jesus Christ is God the Son, and that through His virgin birth, both true humanity and undiminished deity were united in one person. (John 1:1, John 1:14, Matthew 1:21, 1 Titus 3:16, Philippians 2:6-7, Rom_9:5 )
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross, providing through His own blood, a full and perfect substitutionary sacrifice for sins for all whom repent and believe. (Romans 5:8, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Isaiah 53:5-6, 1 Peter 2:24, Hebrews 7:25, Hebrews 10:14, Romans 4:25, 1 John 2:2)
We believe in the bodily resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. His ascension into Heaven ensures the resurrection of all believers who have received God’s gift of eternal life. (Acts 4:10, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, John 11:25-26, Philippians 3:21, 1 Corinthians 15:20)
We believe in the imminent physical return of the Lord Jesus Christ to take His church to glory. His return to reign on the earth, His righteous judgment of the world and the blessing of Heaven are only for those who have trusted Him for salvation. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Revelations 20:11-15, John 14:2-3)
We believe man was originally created in the image of God, and by disobedience fell into sin. Man is responsible for his sin and is liable for eternal punishment and separation from God. MAN CANNOT SAVE HIMSELF. (Romans 3:10-12, Romans 3:20, Romans 3:23, 1 Corinthians 15:21, Genesis 1:27, Genesis 1:31, Isaiah 64:6)
We believe salvation from eternal punishment and fellowship with God, are secured only through faith, that Christ bore our sins in His own body on the cross. By a definite receiving of Christ, through the Holy Spirit, into our inner being we are saved and CANNOT LOSE OUR SALVATION. (Ephesians 2:8-9, John 3:16, 1 Peter 1:3-5, John 10:28-29, Isaiah 53:5-6)
We believe God, the Holy Spirit has united every believer in Christ by Spirit baptism, and He indwells every believer to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. He empowers and instructs the believer in Godly living. (1 Corinthians 12:13, John 13:1)
We believe the Church is composed of all true believers and the Lord Jesus is the only head of HIS Church (Acts 2:47, Colossians 1:18, Matthew 16:18 ‘I will build My Church’, 1 Corinthians 1:2 ‘with all who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours’).
