Statement of Faith

The Scripture

We believe the Bible is the Word of God, and the Old and New Testaments are supernaturally inspired, infallible, and the final authority for all Christian faith, life, and conduct for every age.

The Godhead

We believe in one God, the creator of all things, who is infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three distinct but interdependent persons—Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Person and Work of Christ

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ, without any change in His eternal Deity, became man, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men. We believe Christ accomplished our redemption through His atoning death on the cross as a perfect and complete sacrifice, and our justification is made sure by His shed blood and His literal physical resurrection from the dead. We believe Jesus Christ ascended into heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where as our High Priest and Head of the Church, He acts as our Intercessor, Advocate, and will one day return and reign forever.

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit’s ministry is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and to convict the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. We believe He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration at conversion, baptizing all believers into the Body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them until the Day of Redemption. We believe the Holy Spirit is the Divine Teacher, who guides believers into all truth, and fills and empowers the believer for godly living and service.

The Condition of Man

We believe man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam’s sin, the entire race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God. We believe man is totally depraved, lost, and of himself completely unable to remedy his hopeless condition.

Salvation

We believe salvation, with its forgiveness of sins, importation of a new nature, and hope of eternal life, is entirely apart from good works. We believe salvation is the gift of God brought to men by grace and is received by a personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose atoning death and resurrection provide the only ground of justification, forgiveness, and salvation.

The Church

We believe the Church, which is the body and Bride of Christ, is composed of all persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit.

Satan

We believe Satan is a fallen angel, the author of sin, and the cause of the fall. Satan is the open and declared enemy of God and man, and that he shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire.

The Eternal State

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to eternal judgment and everlasting punishment.

Missions

We believe it is the goal of every Christian to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God and the indwelling Spirit. Therefore we believe it is the obligation of the saved to witness by life and word, to the truths of the Scriptures, to seek to proclaim the gospel, and in turn make disciples, of all “nations”. We believe the central passion and purpose of God is to be exalted in all the earth by every “tongue, tribe, nation, and people” and the heart of God is to use His people to complete this Great Commission.
