Statement of Faith
Scriptures: We believe the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are all verbally inspired by God, without error as originally written, and are the only infallible rule for life and practice.
The Godhead: We believe the Godhead is one God existing in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - and having precisely the same nature, power, and glory.
The Savior: We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh. We hold to His virgin birth, sinless life, penal substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, present priestly ministry, translation of His church, and personal premillennial return to set up
His earthly kingdom.
The Holy Spirit: We believe the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity who convicts the unsaved, regenerates those predestined by
God the Father to be saved, and effects the full salvation of the believer.
Man: We believe, through the fall of man in Adam, all men are
totally depraved and stand in need of regeneration.
Salvation for Sinners: We believe salvation was provided through Jesus Christ by His sacrificial death on the cross - sufficient for all, effectual for many - taking away every legal obstacle. Man must be
born again or forever be lost.
Eternal Life: We believe eternal life is the sovereign work of God’s
grace implanted in the sinner when he believes and receives Christ.
Two Destinies: We believe the eternal destiny for the believer is the loving presence of the Lord, and for the unbeliever is the wrathful,
punitive presence of the Lord.
The Church: We believe the church is an organism with the Lord Jesus Christ as the head, made up of individual believers who have been saved by personal faith in Him through the grace of God and baptized into His body by the Holy Spirit. We believe the continuing church is also an organization for the evangelistic and missionary commission given by Christ to make Him known by word and example, and to bring believers to Christ like maturity by instruction in the Word.
