STATEMENT OF FAITH

WE BELIEVE

the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.

WE BELIEVE

that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE

in the deity of 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.

WE BELIEVE

that for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity, repentance from sin and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to come into a relationship with God.

WE BELIEVE

in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We further believe His power and gifts are available to believers today.

WE BELIEVE

in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

WE BELIEVE

it is important to uphold the Scriptural practices of the early church. Therefore, we hold to the practice of water baptism and the regular taking of Communion. We do not believe that either of these practices is essential for salvation, but that they serve as a demonstration of our living faith in Christ.
