Our Statement of Faith
We believe that there is one God, Creator and Sustainer of heaven and earth, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe the Holy Scriptures are the verbally inspired Word of God, are inerrant in the original manuscripts, and are uniquely infallible, being our highest authority for life.
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 substitutionary atoning sacrifice upon the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His victory over sin and His enemy Satan, in His present exaltation at His Father’s right hand, and in His personal return, at any time, in power and great glory.
We believe in the fall and the lost condition of man, whose total moral depravity requires that he be regenerated by the Holy Spirit for his salvation.
We believe the justification of Christ for the lost requires our surrender to Jesus as Lord and Savior, consists of the forgiveness of sin and the imputation of His righteousness, is received by grace through faith alone entirely apart from works; and those abiding in Christ will be progressively sanctified and transformed into His image, and ultimately receive His gift of eternal life.
We believe in the ministry of sanctification by the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling leadership the Christian is continuously and progressively renewed and empowered to abide in Christ, and by whom the members of His Church, the Body of Christ, are gifted and equipped to build up one another while serving and glorifying God.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all mankind: those who abide in Christ, the ultimate Judge, will receive everlasting life and blessedness with Him; those who do not abide in Christ will receive everlasting torment and punishment, and eternal separation from His presence.
We believe in spiritual unity by the impelling indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit of all true believers in and followers of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We believe that Jesus has commanded His Church to make disciples of all people in all nations and that this mandate should be a primary concern of all Christians and understood as a part of abiding in Christ.
