Statement
Of Faith

We Believe:

line

That the Holy Bible is inerrant, composed of the Old and New Testaments, and is of final and supreme authority in faith and life. "All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness so that we may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17

That God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, is one God, eternally existing in three persons;

God the Father is infinite in wisdom, power and love, whose mercy is over all His works, and whose will is ever directed to His children's good;

Jesus Christ is Son of God and Son of man, the gift of the Father's unfailing grace, the ground of our hope, and the promise of our deliverance from sin and death;

Holy Spirit is the divine presence in our lives, whereby we live through His power in the truth of Christ, and find help and strength to live our daily lives;

That God, the creator, is eternal, all-knowing, and ever-present and that God is greater than any understanding or description of him;

That mankind was created in the image of God but sinned thereby separating us from God and incurring physical and spiritual death;

That all people are born with a sinful nature and are in need of a Savior to be reconciled to God;

That Jesus the Lord Christ, led a sinless life and is the only Savior, that He died for our sins as the substitutionary sacrifice and rose to life again, that all who believe in Him and confess Him as Lord are justified and made right before the Holy God;

That there will be a bodily resurrection of all persons, judgment to come, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost;

That it is by God's grace alone that we are given this new eternal life. We have no merit to earn or keep it on our own;

That this faith should manifest itself in the service of love as set forth in the example of our Lord, to the end that the kingdom of God may come upon the earth.
