Statement of Faith

We Believe:

We believe the Bible, the 66 books of the Old Testament and New Testament, to be the inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of mankind, and the divine, supreme, and final authority for all Christian faith, life, and conduct.

We believe and trust in only one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death on the cross through His shed blood; in His perfect and complete sacrifice for sins once and for all time, substituting Himself, taking the punishment for, and atoning in our place, for our sins in accordance with Scripture; in His bodily resurrection from the dead, in His ascension into heaven, in His present ministry of intercession for believers and in His believers, and in His personal return to earth in power and glory.

We believe man was directly created by God in His own image, but because of sin, was alienated from God; and alienation can be removed by God’s grace alone in receiving through faith alone God’s gift of salvation which was made possible by Christ’s death on the cross.

We believe the atoning death of Jesus Christ provided the only ground of justification and salvation for all who believe, and that only such as submit to Jesus Christ by personal faith are born again of the Holy Spirit.

We believe if a man confesses Jesus Christ as Lord and believes in His heart that God raised Him from the dead, he shall be saved.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe the Holy Spirit indwells those who have received Christ, for the purpose of enabling kingdom service and empowering God’s people to lead righteous, holy, obedient lives, and to be His witness.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved to everlasting blessing and joy with the Lord, and they that are lost to everlasting punishment and separation from the Lord.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We believe the Church is the Body of Christ and is comprised of all those who trust Jesus Christ alone as Savior and Lord, and have been spiritually regenerated and indwelt by the Holy Spirit. The mission of the church is to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ.
