Statement of Faith

WE BELIEVE:

… There is one God who reveals Himself to humanity as three distinct, equally divine persons: Father, Son (Jesus), and Holy Spirit, and that the Deity is a prayer-hearing and prayer-answering God. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19)

 

… Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God, who died for our sins and arose from the dead. (1 Corinthians 15:1-8; John 3:16)

 

… That God as the Holy Spirit dwells in every believer in Christ. (John 14:25-26; Romans 8:9-12; Matthew 28:19)

 

… The Bible is the complete, inerrant word of God – a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. (2 Timothy 3:16; Psalm 119:105; Galatians 1:6-8)

 

… Every person has worth as a creation of God, but that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)

 

… Forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Christ as Savior and Lord. (John 3:16)

 

… Those accepting Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith, and be baptized into Him for forgiveness of sin and the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 10:9-10; Acts 2:37-38)

 

… The Church is the body of Christ on earth, the present manifestation of His kingdom, is empowered by the Holy Spirit, and exists to evangelize the lost and edify the saved. (Ephesians 4:1-16)

 

… Jesus Christ will one day return to gather His saints who will be with Him forever. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
