Statement of Faith

About the Scriptures

§  We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments in their original writing as fully inspired of God and accept them as the supreme and final authority for faith and life.

§  We believe the Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the doctrine of sanctification as definite, yet a progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of the new birth and continuing until the consummation of salvation.


About God

§  We believe in one God, Creator of all things who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

§  We believe that Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary and is true God and true man.

§  We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ was crucified and died for our sins, a substitutionary sacrifice according to the Scriptures and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood

§  We believe in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, His ascension into Heaven, and His present life as our High Priest and Advocate.

§  We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

§  We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit, empowering and equipping believers for service with the accompanying supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit and to live a godly life and be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ.


About Humanity

§  We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him but became alienated in that relationship by the sinful nature and through sinful disobedience. Thus, all people require salvation, but are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.

§  We believe that all who repent of their sin and receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.

§  We believe in the resurrection of both the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the redeemed and the eternal banishment of those who have rejected the offer of salvation.

§  We believe that the Bible upholds monogamous, heterosexual marriage between a natural man and a natural woman as God’s exclusive design for marriage.

§  We believe that divine healing was provided for in the Old Testament and is an integral part of the Gospel.


About Ordinances

§  We believe that Jesus Christ established the believer’s baptism by immersion, as well as the Lord’s Supper as ordinances to be observed by the church during the present age.


About the Church

§  We believe that the church is the body of Christ; a community of believers of which Jesus Christ is the head. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and all of His creation.

§  We believe in the divinely ordained ministries of the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher.
