STATEMENT OF FAITH

  • We believe the Bible to be the divinely inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God and His primary vehicle for the revelation of His mind and will to both believer and unbeliever.

    (Matthew 4:4; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; Hebrews 4:12; Romans 15:4; 1 Peter 1:23; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:14-17)

  • We believe that there is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    (Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22; Matthew 11:27; John 10:37-38; John 14:8-11; 1 John 5:7)

  • We believe that the Triune God created and sustains heaven and earth, and all life within it by the power of His Word.

    (Gen. 1:1-25; Psalms 8:3; Colossians 1:16,17)

  • We believe that man was created in the image of God – both male and female, to reflect His image, rule over creation, and multiply.

    (Gen. 1:26-29; Gen. 2:7,15, 18-25; Psalm 8:4-8)

  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death on the cross through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father in heaven and in His personal return in power and glory.

    (John 1:1; John 20:28; Matthew 1:23; 1 Peter 1:18-19; Romans 5:8; Ephesians 2:13; Acts 4:33; Luke 24:50-53; Acts 1:11; John 4:46-54; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 John 2:2; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; John 5:1-9; John 9: 1-7; John 20:30-31; John 21:25; Matthew 28:1-8; Mark 16:1-13: Luke 24:1-12; John 20:1-18)

  • We believe that through Adam, sin entered the human race and that all people are inherently sinful, destined for eternal damnation and in need of salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ.

    (Gen 3:1-24; Rom.5:12,18,19; Rom. 6:23; Eph. 1:7)

  • We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is biblically essential.

    (John 3:3-8; Hebrews 7:25; 1 Peter 1:18-23; Titus 3:5; James 1:18; 1 Peter 1:1-3; 1 John 1:7-9; 1 John 5:1-4)

  • We believe in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit who reveals the mind of God, convicts of sin, transforms into the image of Christ, empowers the Christian to live a godly life, and who equips the believer with power, boldness and gifts to preach the gospel and edify the Church.

    (John 7:39; John 14:15-18; John 16:7-15; Joel 2:28-29; Acts 2:17-21; Romans 12:6-8; Acts 1:4-5, 8; Acts 2:1-4, 38-39; Acts 10:44-46; Ephesians 4:11-12; Acts 19:1-6; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Romans 8:26-27)

  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life in the presence of God and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal punishment and separation from God.

    (Matthew 25:31-33; Mark 9:43-47; John 5:25-29; Acts 17:30-31; 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10; Revelation 20:4-6, 11-15)

  • We believe in the Universal Church, the spiritual unity of believers worldwide in our Lord Jesus Christ.

    (Romans 15:5; Ephesians 4:3; Philippians 2:1-5; 1 Corinthians 12:14-27; John 17:22-26; Colossians 3:12-15; Hebrews 10:23-25; Ephesians 4:11-13)
