Statement of Faith

We believe that the Bible, inerrant as originally given, was verbally inspired by God, and is a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and constitutes the Divine rule of Christian faith and practice. (Hebrews 1:1-2, II Timothy 3:15-17)

We believe there is one true God who is infinitely perfect, the Creator, Preserver and Governor of all things, and who exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Mark 12:32, Matthew 3:16-17, Matthew 28:19-20)

We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man.  He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a the Virgin Mary.  He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe on Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.  He arose from the dead according to the scriptures.  He is now at the right hand of the Father, the majesty on high as our great High Priest. He will visibly come again in power and glory to receive His own. (Mark 8:38; Luke 1:26-33; John 1:1-14; Acts 17:30-31; Galatians 4:4; Philippians 2:5-8; I Timothy 2:5)

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer, and convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. (John 14:26; John 16:8-9; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:13)

We believe that God created man in His image, and by a direct act, but man, by his disobedience fell, incurring both physical and spiritual death.  All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from God, and can only be saved through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Genesis 2:7; Ecclesiastes 7:29; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12; II Corinthians 5:10; Ephesians 2:8-9)
