Statement of Faith
- I believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and contains every answer to man’s problems, questions and God’s future plan.
- I believe in only one God, the Creator of all things, perfect and existing as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The three equal persons of God have different qualities and functions.
- I believe Jesus Christ is truly God and he became truly man, united in one person. Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born by a virgin. He died on a cross, the sacrifice for our sins. Three days later, he physically rose from the dead and ascended into the presence of God.
- I believe in the Holy Spirit’s presence in the life of every Christian. He provides godly guidance and godly power in our lives.
- I believe man is created in the image of God but separated from God by sin. Without Jesus we cannot have a relationship with God.
- I believe that salvation is both the forgiveness of our sins and the restoration of a proper relationship with our Creator. Our salvation is from God and is a free gift found only in Jesus Christ. By admitting we have sinned and believing in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, and accepting Him as Lord, we can spend eternity with God. . It is not a result of what we do, but it is only available through God’s unearned favor.
- I believe the one true church, the body of Christ, consists of all believers in Jesus Christ.
- I believe in obedience to the Lord in the Great Commandment, to love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, to love our neighbors as ourselves and the Great Commission, to lead people of all nations to faith in Christ and to grow in Christ-likeness.
- I believe Jesus will return and take all those who have accepted Him as Savior to be with Him for eternity.
