Our Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. The Holy Spirit moved upon the writers of the Old and New Testament and inspired them as they wrote the Words of God. God’s revelation of Jesus Christ in all Scripture is unchangeable. Through it the Holy Spirit still speaks today. (II Tim. 3:13-17; Heb. 4:12; Psalm 119:89, 105; I Pet. 1:23-25; Gal. 1:8, 9; Matt. 5:18; Isa. 40:8)
We believe that there is One God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God the Father – Creator of all things. By His Word all things were created and through the power of His Word all things are held together. He sent His Son Jesus Christ to redeem mankind unto Himself. A relationship with God only comes through Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ – is the one and only Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of a virgin. He lived a sin-less life, and performed many signs, wonders and miracles. He redeemed us by His atoning death through His shed blood, He ascended to the right hand of the Father, and He will personally return in power and glory. There is no other name given under heaven by which man must be saved.
Holy Spirit – inspired the writers of the Bible, convicts the world of sin, teaches us all things, and brings to our remembrance the Word of God. (Deut. 6:4; Isa. 44:6-8; Isa. 43:10; Matt. 3:16, 17; Matt. 28:19; I Cor. 12:4-6; John 14:23, 25; I Tim. 6:15, 16; I John 5:7)
We believe that mankind is perishing because of sin, which separates man from God. But God loves all mankind, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should repent. Mankind can only be saved by grace through faith in a living relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, being regenerated by the Holy Spirit. We believe in the ongoing, sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by who’s indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a holy life and minister supernaturally (Gen. 1:26, 31; Psalm 8:4-8; Gen. 3:1-7; Rom. 5:1, 12-21; Eph. 2:8, 9; Acts 3:19-21; I Cor. 15:21, 22; Gal. 6:14, 15; II Cor. 5:17)
We believe in the present infilling/baptism of the Holy Spirit for all believers who desire it. The baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 1:4-8 and Acts 2:4, is poured out on believers that they might have God’s power to be His witnesses and make disciples. The Holy Spirit gives us power to cultivate Christ-like character through the Fruit of the Spirit and to build up and mature the church through the miraculous gifts and ministries in this present day (John 15:8-10; I Cor. 12:13; John 3:5, 6; Acts 1:4-8; Acts 2:1-4; Acts 2:38, 39; Luke 11:9-13; Joel 2:28, 29; I Cor. 12, 13, 14; Heb. 2:4)
We believe that the local church is a body of believers brought together by the Holy Spirit as a visible part of the body of Christ and His church universal. The church is responsible to faithfully proclaim the whole Word of God, to equip believers for fulfilling the Great Commission and to care for and comfort the sick, the poor and the needy. (Matt. 28:19, 20; Rom. 12:4, 5; I Cor. 12:27; Eph. 2:22; I Pet. 2:5, 9, 10; Titus 2:14; Isaiah 61:1,2; Matt.25:34-40)
We believe that all mankind will give an account of their deeds in this earthly life before the judgment seat of Christ. Those with their names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be eternally with God in His glory; those without their names written will be eternally separated from God
We believe all the commandments are summed up by Jesus in these two: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself. (Matthew 22:37-40)
