Statement of Faith

What we believe about God and the Bible

  • We believe that the only true basis of Christian fellowship is God’s love, which is greater than our differences. Therefore we look for His love in our lives as the supreme evidence that we have truly been born again.

  • We believe that worship of God should be Spiritual, Inspirational, and Intelligent. Therefore our services place great emphasis to music in our worship and upon teaching the Bible, which is the Word of God, that He might instruct us how to live and worship.

 

  • We believe that the Holy Scriptures, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired, and without error in the original manuscripts. The Holy Bible is the supreme rule of faith and truth.

 

  • We believe there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.

 

  • We believe in God The Father, infinite, personal, perfect in wisdom, power, and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of people; that He hears and answers prayer; that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through faith in Jesus Christ.

 

  • We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death for sin, His bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intersession for His people, and His personal visible return to earth to rule in power and glory.

 

  • We believe in the Holy Spirit, whose ministry is to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment; and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower for ministry all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer and that He is our Helper, Teacher, and Guide.

 

  • We believe that all after Adam are sinners by nature and choice, and therefore are under condemnation. We believe that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord, and will receive God’s forgiveness for their sins.

 

  • We believe in the personal, visible, return of Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His Kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, and the eternal blessing of the righteous in heaven and the endless suffering of the wicked in hell.

 

  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to His church: Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper. We believe in baptism by immersion, and the partaking of communion, open to all believers.
