Statement of Faith
We believe in the one, holy, sovereign, creating and redeeming God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the divine inspiration, the inerrancy of the original manuscripts and the entire trustworthiness of the Bible; its infallible teaching and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct; and its normative value for all peoples, at all times, in all cultures.
We believe in Jesus Christ our Lord, the incarnate Son of God, uniquely God-man and the only Savior. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, sacrificial death, bodily resurrection and ascension. When Christ died on the Cross and rose again He totally defeated Satan and all evil powers. He will manifest the full scope of His victory at the Second Advent.
We believe in the justification of sinners by God's grace, through faith in Christ alone, apart from personal works of merit. This reconciliation to God removes believers from the condemnation of the law of Moses and places them under the sanctifying realm of God's grace. Although true belivers experience God's chastisement in this life and His evaluation at the judgement seat of Christ in the next, they will not lose their salvation.
We believe in the Holy Spirit and in His convicting, regenerating, sanctifying and reviving work. He guides and empowers individuals and churches in their service to God and man. Through reckoning their identification with Christ in His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension, believers are equipped to live abundantly. As they abide in Christ through personal surrender to God's will and dependence on His Spirit, they express Christ's life.
We believe in the unity of all believers who together form the one, holy, universal, apostolic church. Christ's people are called to be a worshiping, praying, caring fellowship committed to world-wide evangelism and discipleship.
We believe in the visible, personal return of Jesus Christ in power and great glory to judge both the living and the dead. We believe that the Scriptures set out only two destinies for humanity: the joyful prospect of eternal life in the presence of God for those who have received Christ, and the agonizing prospect of eternal separation from God for those who have rejected Him.
