Statement of Faith

 

We believe the Bible is the literal, infallible, and inspired Word of God, and is the final authority on all maters of faith and life (Matthew 24:35; II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:3-4).

We believe there is one God who is revealed to us in three distinct manifestations; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (John 1:1-4, 14; Romans 8:9; II Corinthians 13:14).

We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus, His death, burial and bodily resurrection.

We believe in His complete deity and humanity; that He is fully God and came in the likeness of man, God incarnate (Romans 1:3-4; John 1:1-14; I Timothy 3:16).

We believe Christ’s atoning sacrifice on Calvary has made possible the salvation of all mankind, by Grace through Faith, and that a Christian stands and lives by the faith of the Son of God (Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; Galatians 2:16; Hebrews 9:12).


We believe in the present day New Testament ministry of the Holy Spirit (Mark 16:20; II Corinthians 5:17-19).

We believe in His appearing in and through the Body of Christ, and His eminent physical return (Revelation 20:11-15; I Corinthians 15:13-17; John 14:20, 23; II Peter 1:4).

We believe that God was in Christ reconciling all the world unto Himself, and that the ministry of reconciliation has been given to the Body of Christ (John 3:16-17; II Corinthians 5:18-21).


We believe in the bodily resurrection and righteous judgment of all mankind (Acts 26:8; Revelation 21:11-15).

We believe that when matters in the scripture appear to be ambiguous, the Christian should seek the leading of the Holy Spirit, and the witness of the Word of God for direction (Romans 14:4-5; Philippians 2:12).

We believe in water baptism as an act of obedience to the Word of God (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Mark 16:16).
