Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith

  1. We believe in the divine inspiration of the Scriptures, their consequent inerrancy and infallibility, and as the Word of God, the final authority in faith and life.
  2. We believe in one God existing in three co-equal and co-eternal persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, is truly God and truly man.
  4. We believe that Man was created in the image of God, but sinned through the fall of Adam, and therefore all human beings are born sinful and become sinners in thought, word and deed.
  5. We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, His ascension to heaven, His exaltation on high and that He is now our High Priest and Advocate.
  6. We believe in the visible and premillennial return of Jesus Christ to judge this world and to bring peace to the nations.
  7. We believe that salvation is by grace through faith, not of works, and all who are saved are born again by the Holy Spirit and have become the children of God.
  8. We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Christ and to convict, regenerate, indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service.
  9. We believe in the practice of the Sacrament of Baptism and Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper.
  10. We believe in the eternal security, bodily resurrection and eternal blessedness of the saved.
  11. We believe in faithfully maintaining the purity of the Church in doctrine and life according to the Word of God.
