Statement of Faith

 

  • The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God
  • There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit 
  • In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His future return to rule on earth in power and glory. 
  • The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus Christ 
  • We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and His death, burial and resurrection, salvation is a gift from God and not a result of our good works or human effort 
  • Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential for personal salvation
    • In water baptism by immersion for all believer
    • In partaking of the Lord’s supper in remembrance of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross
    • In the infilling work of the Holy Spirit to empower believers to be His witnesses, we believe that the manifestations of the Holy Spirit are still operative today, just as they were in the first century
  • We will go to heaven or hell – that heaven is the eternal dwelling place of all believers and that hell is eternal separation from God for those who refuse His salvation
  • Our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and everyone will come to final judgment with its rewards and punishment
