What We Believe
Our Statement of Faith

The Bible is the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.

There is one God, who created all things and exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, the second person of the Trinity. He came to earth, was conceived by the Holy Spirit in the virgin Mary, was born as a man, and lived a sinless life. He was crucified, died and was buried. On the third day He was physically raised from the dead and was at the right hand of God the Father. He will return to earth, in an event known as the Second Coming of Christ, in power and glory and He will judge all mankind. His Kingdom will have no end.

The Holy Spirit, the third person of the trinity, is at work in the world today. He comforts, teaches, guides and empowers believers. He convicts the world of sin. He distributes the gifts of the Holy Spirit to believers as He wills. Believers are commanded to be continually filled with the Holy Spirit.

The scripture declares in Romans 3:23, “for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Salvation is only possible by grace through faith in the atoning work of Jesus Christ.

Believers are commanded to be baptized in water after they believe, and to remember the Lord’s sacrificial death through the Lord’s Supper (communion). Water Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are not a means of salvation.

There is one body of Christ in this world that consists of all believers. Local churches are a gathering of believers united together in fellowship to advance the Kingdom of God.

There will be a bodily resurrection of the dead: the believer to everlasting joy with the Lord and the unbeliever to eternal punishment.

To present the gospel in such a way that it will impact the world with its reality and power and cause people to b

To disciple those who God has given us: to help them discover, develop and utilize their God given talents, abilities and gifts within the framework of the local church. (Ephesians 4:11-16)

To recognize the calling of those in our care. To help plant churches, establish pastorates, send apostles and missionaries, and see all with special callings find their place in the greater body.

To understand the various needs of special groups within our church (men, women, youth, children, etc…) and provide ministry which will help meet those needs. (1 Peter 5:1-4)

To provide regular church services which will, as their priority, honor God with free and uninhibited worsh
ip from a foundation of holiness: along with teaching, prayer, fellowship and music which will glorify God. (1 Corinthians 14:26)

That the pure ministry of the gospel will bring the body together in love, fellowship and unity resulting in quality pastoral care for the flock of God. (1 John 1:3-4)
