Statement of Faith

Here is what is believe.

The Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God. The Bible is the final authority in every area it addresses for every individual Christian, as well as for the church collectively.

There is one God who eternally exists as three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit and all things were created by Him and for Him.

 God the Son became a human being in the person of Jesus Christ. That He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a substitutionary death for all mankind, was raised from the dead the third day, ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God until His enemies are made His footstool.

 The Holy Spirit was sent by the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. The Holy Spirit regenerates, indwells and seals believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that He empowers them to live as His witnesses.

 God created human beings, male and female, in His own image. He created them sinless, equal in value, dignity and worth.

 As a result of the Fall, all people are sinners by nature and in need of a Savior, and that Jesus Christ is the one and only Savior of the world. That salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Him. And, all who call on the name of the Lord will be saved eternally.

 There is one church, the body of Christ, consisting of men and women from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation. Each local congregation is an expression of that universal church. There is a spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

 There will be a literal return of Jesus Christ to the earth and for the consummation of God’s redemptive plan.

 There is the resurrection of the dead. Believers will be raised to life and unbelievers to shame and everlasting contempt (hell).

 All the gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in Scripture are available to and active in His church today.

 God created human beings, male and female, in His own image. He created them sinless, equal in value, dignity and worth. According to His purpose and design, God created them to fulfill distinct but complementary roles in the contexts of marriage, family, and the local church.

 There will be a pre-millennial return of Christ to the earth, to sit upon the throne of David and rule over the house of Jacob (Israel), and the entire cosmos, forever.

 The church will be delivered from the “hour of trial” which will come upon all who dwell on the earth, being “caught up” in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
