Statement of Faith
We believe that God eternally exists in three Persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—and that these three are one God, having the same nature, attributes, and perfections, and worthy of the same worship, reverence, and obedience.
We believe man was created in the image of God, but sinned and fell through disobedience, and that the entire human race shares in man's lost and depraved nature.
We believe Jesus, the eternal Son of God, took upon Himself the form of a man by means of the virgin birth, lived a sinless life, yet retained His absolute deity, being at the same time very God and very man.
We believe that atonement for sin was made by the sacrificial and substitutionary death of Jesus Christ.
We believe in the literal resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and His priestly intercession.
We believe salvation (conversion,new birth, justification) is the gift of God by grace alone and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that this faith is manifested in works pleasing to God.
We believe the Holy Spirit is the Promise of the Father, the Comforter who indwells and places every believer in the Body of Christ, bestows spiritual gifts upon the Church and convicts the world of sin and the judgment to come.
We believe the baptism of the Holy Spirit is for all believers as a definite endowment of power for service and is subsequent to, and separate from, conversion.
We believe that the ordinances of the church, by the command of Christ, are Water Baptism and the Lord's Supper, both of which are administered to those who are born again.
We believe in the eternal salvation of the believers (one can become an nonbeliever by choice) and in the eternal damnation and punishment of the nonbelievers.
We believe that the consummation of all things includes the visible, personal, and glorious return of Jesus Christ the "Blessed Hope" of the Church.
In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
