STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe that all original scripture of the Old and New Testaments is the verbally inspired and inerrant Word of God, the divine and final authority for Christian faith, life, and conduct.

We believe there is one true and unchanging God who is infinitely perfect, the Creator of all things, and eternally existent in three persons; the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ, while being true God, also became true man through conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. He lived a sinless life and died on a cross as the perfect and complete substitutionary sacrifice for our sins. He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven to be with the Father, and acts as our High Priest and advocate.

We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts everyone of sin, baptizes believers into the Church, makes intercession for believers in heaven, and indwells believers to guide, instruct, and empower them for godly living and service.

We believe that man was created by God in His own image, but because of imputed and personal sin, all mankind became separated from the righteous and holy God. God in His love and grace gave His only Son to die on the cross as the atonement for our sin. Only through repentance, confession, and personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior can we be justified and reconciled to God. The atoning blood of Christ and regeneration and baptism by the Holy Spirit seal the believer forever as Children of God.

We believe that all believers are united together in the body of Christ and that they l should live to honor and glorify their Lord as head of the body. Believers are to love, worship, and praise God, love one another, edify each other, and be His witnesses and examples in the world.

We believe that Christ established the ordinances of baptism and communion for the Church, not as essential parts of salvation, but as a means of confession of our faith in Jesus Christ. Baptism by immersion identifies the believer with the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. The Lord's Supper is a heartfelt reminder of what Christ did for us through His broken body and shed blood on the cross.

We believe in the personal return of Christ, the bodily resurrection of the dead and in the taking up of the living saints to be with Him. Christ will come to rule for a thousand years, defeat Satan in a final confrontation, judge the unsaved be forever punished and separated from God, and establish a new heaven and the saved where they will live forever with God.
