Beliefs

Statement of Faith

  1. We believe the Bible is the only written Word of God; it is inspired by Him and is wholly trustworthy and authoritative. (2 Tim. 3:15–16)
  2. We believe in one God, eternally manifested and existent as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matt. 28:19, John 10:30, John 16:13–15)
  3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ (John1:1,14), in His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Luke 1:34–35), in His miracles (John 2:11, Acts 10:38), in His vicarious and atoning death (I Cor. 15:3, Heb 2:9, Heb. 10:10, 14), in His bodily resurrection (I Cor. 15:4, John 2:21–22, Luke 24:6), in His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Acts 1:9, Eph.1:20, Col. 3:1), and in His personal future return to the earth in power and glory. (Mk 13:26, Matt. 16:27)
  4. We believe in the necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit because of man’s sinful nature inherited from Adam; we believe that man is justified only through God’s grace by personal repentance and faith in Jesus Christ and His shed blood. (John 3:16–19, Rom. 3:23–24, Rom. 5:8–9, Eph. 2:8–10, Titus 3:5)
  5. We believe in the resurrection of all persons; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28–29)
  6. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Rom. 8:9, I Cor. 12:12–13, Gal. 3:28–28)
  7. We believe in the present, active ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the believer receives sanctification and the power to live a godly life. (Rom. 8:13–14, I Cor.3:16, I Cor. 6:19–20, Eph. 5:18, Eph. 4:30)
