statement of faith
We believe the Bible to be inspired by the Holy Spirit, therefore, it is the infallible, authoritative Word of God in all matters of faith and conduct.
Psalm 19:7-9; I Corinthians 2:13; II Timothy 3:15-17
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Isaiah 44:6-8; Matthew 28:19-20; John 1:1-4; John 10:30; John 14:9; Ephesians 4:4-6
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutionary and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His bodily ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and in glory.
Matthew 1:23; Matthew 24:30; Luke 1:34-35; John 1:1-4, 14; John 3:16; I Corinthians 15:3-4; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 4:15
We believe that everyone is born with a sinful nature, separated from God and in need of salvation. Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for salvation through the repentance from sin and the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior who is the only way of salvation.
Luke 24:46-47; John 5:24; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23-26; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit who convicts the world of sin and indwells in believers enabling them to live godly lives.
John 14:16-17 and 16:13-14; Acts 1:8; Romans 8:9; Galatians 5:16-18
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment.
I Corinthians 15:51-57; Revelation 20:11-15
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church.
Ephesians 1:22-23; I Corinthians 12:12, 27
We believe that the ministry of evangelism is a responsibility of both the Church and each believer.
Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15; I Peter 3:15
We believe that as believers, we have a responsibility to provide love and support to children without parents or a safe environment and to care for women who have lost their husbands.
