WHAT WE BELIEVE
STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe in one eternal God, Creator and Lord, existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
[Genesis 1:1; Isaiah 40:28; Matthew 28:19]
We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ was fully God and fully man, that he died on the cross to redeem us from the guilt and penalty of sin, and that he rose bodily from the grave to guarantee eternal life to all who repent and believe.
[John 1:1‑14; John 3:16‑18; Acts 2:22‑39; Acts 4:12; Romans 6:23]
We believe eternal salvation requires a personal acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. On acceptance of Christ, the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in the believer as counselor and guide, providing the power to live as Christ’s ambassador.
[John 1:10‑12; Romans 8:9‑11; Acts 1:8; Acts 16:31; 1 Corinthians 12:13]
We believe the Bible, both Old and New Testament, is the inspired Word of God without error in all that it affirms. It is the complete revelation of His will for salvation, and the divine and final authority in matters of doctrine and Christian living.
[John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:16‑21]
We believe a Christian should be baptized according to the New Testament, and should participate as a responsible member of a local church.
[Matthew 28:18‑20; Acts 2:41‑47]
We believe the mission of the Church is to proclaim the Gospel, to win others to Christ, and to disciple them in God’s Word and their commitment to Him.
[Matthew 28:18‑20; Acts 1:8; Romans 12:1‑8; Ephesians 4:11‑16]
We believe in the visible coming again of the Lord Jesus Christ at the end of this age, to take His people to be with Him for eternity.
[Mark 13:21‑27; Mark 14:61-62; Acts 1:8‑11; Revelation 21:1‑5]
