Statement of Faith

Our Statement of Faith

We believe in the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God and inerrant in the original writing, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.

We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned, and thereby incurred, not only physical death, but also that spiritual death which is separation from God, and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of his shed blood.

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His Ascension into the Heaven, and in His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate.

We believe in the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.

We believe that the Bible clearly shows a pattern of morality. This includes the abstinence from sexual activity before marriage and the sanctity of marriage, being ordained by God as the lifetime union of one man and one woman. Any form of sexuality entered into outside of a monogamous, heterosexual marriage is sin and is not an acceptable alternative lifestyle. We believe that God disapproves of and forbids any attempt to alter one’s gender by surgery or appearance.

The Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our faith. The Bible itself is the sole and final source of all that we believe.Therefore, we believe that the foregoing Statement of Faith accurately represents the teachings of the Bible.
