Statement of Faith

  1. We believe that the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments stand alone as the inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God (2 Tim. 3:16, 2 Pet. 1:21).
  2. We believe that there is but one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who is perfect, holy, and sovereign; the Creator, Preserver, and Ruler of all things (Gen.1:1, Mt. 28:19, Jn. 10:30).
  3. We believe in the literal Biblical account of creation as set forth in Genesis 1 and 2.
  4. We believe that man was originally created in the image of God but, because of the temptation of Satan, sinned against God and is therefore lost and separated from God. The only way one can be saved from eternal death and restored to God is by placing his faith in the saving work of Jesus Christ alone (Gen. 1:26, Gen. 3, Rom. 3:10-28).
  5. We believe in :
    • the deity and humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ who is the only begotten Son of God (Jn. 10:30,33; Rom. 9:5)
    • in His virgin birth (Mt. 1:23)
    • in His sinless life (Heb. 4:15)
    • in His miracles (Jn 2:11)
    • in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood (1 Cor. 15:3, Eph. 1:7, Heb. 2:9)
    • in His bodily resurrection (Jn. 11:25, 1 Cor. 15:4)
    • in His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mk. 16:19), and
    • in His personal and physical return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Rev. 19:11).
  6. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential, and that this salvation, which is a gift of God’s grace, is received through faith alone in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, and not as a result of good works (Jn.3:16-19, Rom. 3:23, Eph. 2:8-10).
  7. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: the saved unto the resurrection of life, and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation (Jn. 5:28-29).
  8. We believe in the current ministry of the Holy Spirit, which is to convict, indwell, teach, guide, and empower the believer to perform good works and live a godly life (Rom. 8:13-14, 1 Cor. 3:16, Eph. 4:30).
