Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.

  • We believe there is one God eternally existent in three distinct persons in one divine essence - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.”

  • We believe that God the Father is the first person of the Trinity and is the eternal, unchanging, all-powerful, all-knowing, all-wise, all-loving, completely just and perfectly holy, sovereign Ruler and Sustainer of the universe. He is the Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Father of all true believers.

  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God. To accomplish our redemption, He became fully human, being conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus Christ, who is true God and true man, by His perfect obedience and substitutionary death on the cross, has purchased our redemption. In the same body He was crucified, Jesus rose from the dead for our justification. He ascended into Heaven, where He is seated at the right hand of the Father interceding as the high priest. He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will never end. 

  • The Holy Spirit is a divine person eternally one with the Father and with the Son. He convicts people of sin, persuades them to confess their sinfulness to God, and calls them to faith through the Gospel. He regenerates, sanctifies, and preserves believers in the one true faith. He comforts, guides, equips, directs, and empowers the church to fulfill the great commission. The Holy Spirit desires to fill each believer continually with increased power for Christian life, and imparts His supernatural gifts for the edification of the body and for various works of ministry in the world. All the gifts of the Holy Spirit at work in the church of the first century are available today, are vital for the mission of the church, and are to be earnestly desired and practiced.

  • Salvation—We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for forgiveness of sins and salvation, which is the free gift of God’s grace. Salvation is effected by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit and cannot be secured by man’s works or personal merit.
