Statement of Faith

We Believe

  1. …that the Bible is the infallible and authoritative Word of God and that it is inspired by the Holy Spirit
    (2 Timothy 3:16-17; John 1:1)
  2.  that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons:  the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The ongoing ministry of the Holy Spirit empowers us to live Godly lives and to express our personal faith in good works. 
    (Mathew 28:19; Mathew 3:16-17; Galatians 4:4-6; Genesis 1:1-2; John 15:26; Ephesians 2:10; James 1:20; James 2:17-18)
  3. …in the humanity and deity of our Lord Jesus Christ,  His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious crucifixion and atoning death, His bodily burial and resurrection. We believe in His personal ascension to the right hand of the Father where He now ministers as our Great High Priest and His future personal return to the earth in power and glory.
    (John 1:14; 1 Corinthians 15:1-6; Hebrews 7:26; Luke 21:27; Revelation 22:20)
  4. that there is only one way to salvation, and that is through Jesus and His redemptive work on the cross.  “Whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life”. 
    (Hebrews 5:9; John 3:16;  John 14: 6; Ephesians 2:13; Romans 10:13)
  5. that man is created in the image of God, and each child in the womb is personally known and formed by God.  God is the giver of Life.  Human Life begins at conception, and is a treasure from God to be nurtured and protected.
    (Genesis 1:27; Acts 17:25; Psalm 139
  6. that because of the Fall, each member of the human race is sinful and in need of salvation.  Salvation is a gift of God, based upon the finished work of Christ on the cross.  “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast.”
    (Ephesians 2:8-9; Ephesians 2: 1-5, 12-13; Romans 3:9-18, 23, 27; Romans 4: 1-4; Titus 3:4-5; 2 Timothy 1:8-9; Isaiah 44:20)
  7. in the resurrection  of the saved to everlasting life and the resurrection of the unsaved to everlasting damnation
    (John 4:36)
  8.  … in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. He is our head and we are the body, made to accomplish His works.
    (Ephesians 1:10; Ephesians 1:20-23; Ephesians 4:3-6)
  9. …that there is One God and One Mediator between God and man, Christ Jesus.  His sacrifice for our sins was once for all and eternal. 
    (Hebrews 10:10, 12-14; Romans 3:30; 1 Timothy 2:5; Romans 6:10)
