Statement of Faith

God

We believe in the one ever-living, eternal God: infinite in power, holy in nature; and possessing absolute, indivisible deity. This eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.

 

The Bible

We believe The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a divine revelation from God to man. We accept the Scriptures as the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

 

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin, who lived a sinless life, was crucified on Calvary for our sins, and physically rose from the grave. Now, He has been exalted to the throne of God where He is the only mediator between God and man. We believe that through His death and life we have personal salvation and power for victorious living.

 

Salvation

We believe that all men have sinned and stand in need of redemption, which is obtained through the new birth by faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those repenting of sin and being born again become Children of God.

 

Baptism

We believe that following your decision of faith in The Lord Jesus Christ, new believers are commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water as public evidence of that faith. Water baptism is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer's death to their own sin, the burial of that old life, and the resurrection to a new life in Christ Jesus. Baptism is a significant moment in our journey from a life of sin to a life with Jesus.

 

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is active in the world today and that the baptism of the Holy Spirit, with His accompanying gifts, is the privilege of all believers. "The promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call." Acts 2:39

 

The Church

We believe The Church has been called out of the world to be a group of people who follow Jesus Christ. These Christ-followers, through the power of the Holy Spirit, will affect genuine spiritual change in their communities. As the body of Christ on earth, the church offers hope to humanity. The church is one group of people made up of many members, diverse in their gifts and callings of the Holy Spirit.
