Statement of Faith

  1. We believe the Bible to be the only inerrant authoritative word of God (2 Tim. 3:16, 2 Pet. 1:21).
  2. We believe that there is only one totally sovereign God, eternally present in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:19, 2 Cor. 13:14, 1 Pet. 1:2).
  3. We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ (Col. 2:9), His virgin birth (Isa. 7:14, Matt. 1:23), His sinless life (Heb. 4:15), His miracles (Acts 2:22), His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood (Rom. 5:8-11), His bodily resurrection (Rom. 1:4, John 20:27), His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Col. 3:1), and His future personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Rev. 19:11-16).
  4. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary (John 3:1-17).
  5. We believe that all people are by nature separated from God by sin (Rom. 3:23) but that salvation, redemption and forgiveness are freely offered to all by grace through faith in Jesus (Eph. 2:8-9).
  6. We believe that faith without works is dead (James 2:17).
  7. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit indwelling each believer and empowering them for service (Gal. 4:6).
  8. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost – they who are saved to the resurrection of life (Rom. 8:11) and they who are lost to the resurrection of damnation (Rev. 20:12-15).
  9. We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 12:12-27).
  10. We believe that we are commanded by our Lord Jesus to preach the gospel to those who are lost so that they too can come to a saving knowledge of Him (Matt. 28:19,20, Acts 1:8).
  11. We believe God has ordained the institution of marriage to be between one man and one woman (Gen. 2:21-24, Rom. 1:16-32).
