Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible:

Is God’s divine, inspired and inerrant revelation—both the Old and New Testaments—described as God’s Word
Sanctifies us in truth and will never pass away
Is the final authority for all Christians regarding faith, daily living and practice

We believe that the Godhead is:

Eternally existing in three persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, united and identical in nature
All powerful
All knowing
All present and never changing
Perfect in love, truth, righteousness, justice, goodness, grace and mercy

We believe Jesus Christ:

Is the Son of God, both fully God and fully man (two natures in one) as conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary
Performed miracles to manifest His deity, lived a sinless life, suffered and died as a completely satisfactory sacrifice for the sin of the whole world
Arose from the dead on the third day and has opened the way of salvation for all men who believe in Him
Ascended to the right hand of God the Father where He reigns over the universe and intercedes for believers
Will return to earth to establish His kingdom

We believe man:

Was created in the image of God but fell into disobedience by a voluntary decision
Was separated from God spiritually and will physically die
Is redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ that was shed on the cross
Is saved by faith through grace
Is reborn of the Holy Spirit and enters into a new spiritual life as a child of God

We believe that the Holy Spirit:

Indwells and seals every believer at the moment of saving faith
Is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and not to draw attention to Himself
Convicts the world of sin
Brings righteousness and judgment to guide, direct, instruct and empower the believer for godly living
Enables all believers to understand the Bible and grants power for service

We believe that every believer should:

Have a daily walk with the Lord as they seek to become more like Jesus
Learn how to pray in God’s will to be conformed into the image of Christ
Apply God’s principles (as directed in the Bible) to their daily lives
Be in fellowship for the purpose of accountability and service
Be equipped to evangelize, disciple and encourage those around them
