Statement of Faith

  1. We believe the Bible is the Word of God and is divinely inspired, without error in the original manuscripts, and authoritative in matters of fact, faith, and practice.
  2. We believe in one God, eternal and holy, existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, who was born of a virgin, and lived a sinless life. We believe in His sacrificial and substitu­tionary death on the cross as the means of reconciling man to God, in His bodily resurrection, and in His ascension to the right hand of the Father. We await His personal, future second coming in power and glory.
  4. We believe that by nature man is a sinner and as such is in need of salvation. Without Christ, man is doomed to eternal punishment and separation from God.
  5. We believe that salvation is exclusively by grace through faith in the atoning work of Jesus Christ. It is a free gift from God that leads to repentance from sin and results in a personal and vibrant relationship with God.
  6. We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit through whom the Christian can live a holy and upright life in service to God and man.
  7. We believe in the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and eternal life.
  8. We believe in the spiritual unity of the Church, the Body of Christ, which exists among all who have put their faith in Him.
