STATMENT OF FAITH

We believe

  • That the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, all sixty-six books, is the inspired Word of God by the Holy Spirit.  All of the Bible is infallible and is the final authority for faith and conduct.

  • In one God. He is the eternal God who is the Creator and Preserver of the universe. We believe God manifests in the Holy Trinity:  the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

  • That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, and the eternal Word incarnated by the Holy Spirit through the Virgin Mary; and that by His incarnation, He became like us in everything, except that He did not sin. He died on the cross for our redemption; He was buried, and raised on the third day, ascended into heaven and sat down at the right hand of the Father. He reigns as King and Intercessor for us.

  • That the Holy Spirit is the life giving Spirit of God inspired the prophets and apostles in writing the Bible. He reproves the people of the world of sin and gives them spiritual birth. The Holy Spirit guides the Church in all the truth and glorifies Jesus Christ.

  • That man, a creature already created in the image of God, has fallen. By his spiritual death, man lives in a spiritual state of sin and separation from God. We also believe that man is totally unable to redeem himself.

  • That man is to be saved by God’s free gift on the basis of Christ's redemptive work on the cross and His resurrection on the third day. That man receives such salvation by professing sin, repentance, seeking forgiveness and believing in Jesus Christ atonement, as well as man’s call for Jesus Christ to reign over his life. Thus, the Holy Spirit gives this person the new birth.

  • That the Church is one collective Body of Christ.

  • That we should seek the extension of the Kingdom of God. Thus, we obey Christ’s great commission: “Go ye into the entire world, and preach the Gospel to every creature."

  • That Christ will come again and the dead, both righteous and wicked, will be resurrected and finally judged; the righteous to eternal life, and wicked to eternal torment.
