Statement of Faith

We believe…

  1. That there is only one GOD, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  2. That the Bible in its entirety (all 66 books of the Old and New Testaments) is the inspired word of God, inerrant, and the only infallible and sufficient authority for faith and Christian living.
  3. That Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God the Father, is true GOD and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, Mary. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Furthermore, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, and now sits at the right hand of God the Father. He is now our High Priest and Advocate;
  4. That the ministry of the Holy Spirit glorifies Jesus Christ, convicts of sin, regenerates the believing sinner, indwells, guides, instructs and empowers the believer for Godly living and service.
  5. That man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost and only through regeneration of the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained;
  6. That the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only those who receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit, and thus become children of God;
  7. That water baptism and the Lord’s supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during this present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation;
  8. That the true Church is composed of all such persons, who through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the Head;
  9. In the personal, second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ;
  10. In the bodily resurrection of the dead, of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy in heaven with the Lord, of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment in hell.
