Statement of Faith

We believe that there is one God eternally existing in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who are the same in authority and power. (Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 4:5-6; II Corinthians 13:14; I John 5:7)

We believe that the scriptures are God’s written revelation to man, given by inspiration of God, authoritative, truthful, and without error in the original manuscripts. (Proverbs 30:5-6; II Timothy 3:16-17)

We believe that salvation is a gift from God, not of works. And, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. No one can come to the Father except through Jesus Christ. Salvation is maintained through the grace and the power of God, not by the believer’s efforts. (John 3:3-21, 10:28-29, 14:6; Romans 10:9-13; Ephesians 2:8-10; Hebrews 7:25; I Peter 1:3-5)

We believe it is appointed for man to die once and to live in eternity, a literal Heaven or Hell, the places of eternal existence. Man will either live in Heaven in union with God through the forgiveness of sins and salvation or eternally separated from God by sin. (John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Hebrews 9:27; I John 1:25, Revelation 20:15; I Peter 1:3-4)

We believe that God created man in His image according to His likeness. Man disobeyed and sinned against God. Therefore, God separated Himself from man and man died spiritually. (Genesis 1:26-27, 3:14-24; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 59: 1-2; Romans 3:23)

We believe in Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, and miracles, and that He is the author and finisher of our faith. Through His blood shed upon the cross, death, burial, and resurrection, God has made reconciliation available to man through Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins. Jesus ascended into heaven where He presently intercedes for believers. He will, as He has promised, return to earth in great power and glory to rule. (Romans 3:23-26, 5:8, 8:27; I Peter 1:18-19)

We believe in the Holy Spirit who is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He indwells, t
eaches, leads, comforts and convicts the believer. (John 14:16-17, 16:7-13; II Corinthians 3:17;
Ephesians 1:13-14)
