Statement of Faith

 

• We believe the Holy Bible (Genesis to Revelation) is the complete, true and authoritative Word of God inspired by the Holy Spirit, and provides instruction for our daily lives. 2 Peter 2:20-21, Tim 3:16, Deut. 4:2, Rev. 22:18-19

 

•We believe there is One God (1 Tim. 2:5, Is. 44:6) and He is the Trinity of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. John 1:1, John 14:9, Gal. 1:1, John 5:18, Luke 1:35-37, Heb. 9:14, I Cor. 2:10-11

 

•We believe in God the Father, who is the source of all that is good. God the Father is maker of heaven and earth.  He is omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (all-knowing), and omnipresent (everywhere at once).  His very nature is love.  Genesis 1:1, Matthew 6:9; Romans 8:14,15; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 1 Corinthians 15:24, James 1:17

 

• We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. Matthew 1:23; John 1:1-4 and 1:29; Acts 1:11 and 2:22-24; Romans 8:34; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:1-4 and 4:15.

 

• We believe that all men everywhere are lost and face the judgment of God.  We believe that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation and that for the salvation of lost and sinful man there needs to be a repentance of sin, faith in Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit. Luke 24:46-47; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23; 2 Corinthians 5:10-11; Ephesians 1:7 and 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7.

 

• We believe in the Holy Spirit, who gives new life and whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life. John 3:5-8; Acts 1:8 and 4:31; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 5:16-18; Ephesians 6:12; Colossians 2:6-10.

 

• We believe in the resurrection of both believers and unbelievers; the believers to the resurrection of eternal life and the unbelievers to the resurrection of condemnation and eternal punishment. 1 Corinthians 15:51-57; Revelation 20:11-15.

 

• We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church.   1 Corinthians 12:12, 27; Ephesians 1:22-23.

 

• We believe that the ministry of evangelism and discipleship is a responsibility of all followers of Jesus Christ. Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15; 1 Peter 3:15.

 

• We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, the study of God’s Word, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to be salt and light in this world. Matthew 9:35-38; 22:37-39, and 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15 and 12:20-21; Galatians 6:10; Colossians 2:6-10; 1 Peter 3:15.
