Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible and authoritative Word of God. (“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” - 2 Timothy 3:16)

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” - Matthew 28:19)

We believe in the deity of our Lord, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory. (“Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.” Acts 1:11; also see John 10:33; Matt. 1:23; Heb. 4:15; John 2:11; I Cor. 15:3; John 11:25; Mark 16:19)

We believe that salvation can be neither deserved nor earned, but is the free gift of God given to those who accept it by faith. (“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” - Eph. 2:8-10; also see John 3:16; John 5:24; Rom. 5:8-9; Titus 3:5).

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost. They that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (“Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. “ - John 5:28-29)

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (“There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. “ - Eph. 4:4-6)

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by indwelling the Christian, enabling Him to live a Godly life. (“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” - Romans 8:29)
