Statement of Faith

We believe:

In one God, Creator and Lord of all things, eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

In the divine inspiration of the Holy Scripture, its consequential trustworthiness, and it’s supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

God created Adam and Eve in His own image, distinct from all other living creatures, in a state of original righteousness. Adam and Eve sinned by rebelling against God and thereby suffered both spiritual and physical death. As a result, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are eternally separated from a Holy God.

That Jesus Christ, God’s Son, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a substitutionary atoning death on the cross, rose bodily from the dead and ascended to heaven where, as truly God and truly man, He is the only mediator between God and man.

That man is justified solely by the grace of God through faith alone in Christ crucified and risen from the dead. All who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.

That the one, universal Church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the Body of Christ, of which He is the head. Her calling is to worship God and to give witness to Jesus Christ, preaching the Gospel among all nations, demonstrating compassionate service to the needs of human beings, and promoting righteousness and justice.

That the Holy Spirit indwells and gives life to believers, enables them to understand the Scriptures, empowers them for godly living, and equips them for service and witness.

That Jesus Christ will return to this earth, personally, visibly, and unexpectedly, in power and great glory, to raise the dead, to judge the world, and to bring His Kingdom to fulfillment a new heaven and new earth, in which He will be glorified forever.

In the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust: the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
