Statement of Faith

  1. Holy Scriptures
    We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, equally in all parts and in the whole and its totally inerrant in the original manuscripts. We believe the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments were given by divine inspiration. We further believe that the Bible is the supreme revelation of God, from God.
  2. The Godhead
    We believe in one eternally existent, infinite God, Sovereign of the universe. That Jehovah only is God, creative and administrative, holy in nature, attributes, and purpose. That He is eternally existent in three persons; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; and that these three are one God worthy of the same homage and obedience.
  3. The Lord Jesus Christ
    We believe in the pre-existent, incarnation and virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ who came into the world to reveal the Father, and was the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person; that the Lord Jesus Christ was the creator of all things, for by Him the worlds were made. We believe that in Christ dwelt all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and that He was very God and very man. We further believe in the sinless life of our Lord Jesus Christ, His miracles., His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His bodily ascension into heaven, and His imminent return.
  4. The Holy Spirit
    We believe that the Holy Spirit, though omnipresent from all eternity, after the glorification of Jesus Christ was sent on the day of Pentecost, dwells in every believer, unites all to Christ in one body, and is the source of all power and all acceptable service.
  5. Atonement for Sin
    We believe that Jesus Christ, by His sufferings, by the shedding of His own blood, and by His death, made a full atonement for all human sin, and that this atonement is the only means of salvation.
  6. The Lifestyle of the Believer
    We believe that a continuous walk in grace should be the emphasis of heart righteousness and purity, believing in the keeping power of God, walking after the Spirit and not after the flesh, in conduct that demonstrates the character of Jesus Christ, not being conformed to the world, but being transformed by the renewing of the mind. We further believe that each believer must lay a foundation of Biblical truth and experience upon which he builds his life. Through the Lordship of Jesus Christ, these foundation stones are established in the new birth and include repentance from dead works, faith toward God, the doctrine of baptisms, laying on of hands; the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.
  7. Free Moral Choice
    We believe that man's creation in godlikeness included ability to choose between right and wrong, and that thus he was made morally responsible. We also believe that the grace of God through Jesus Christ is freely bestowed upon all men, enabling all who will to turn from sin to righteousness, believe on Jesus Christ for pardon and cleansing from sin, and follow good works pleasing and acceptable in His sight.
    We believe that man, though in the possession of the experience of being born-again and Spirit-filled, may fall from grace and apostatize and, unless he repent of his sin, be hopelessly and eternally lost.
  8. Repentance
    We believe that repentance, which is a sincere and thorough change of the mind in regard to sin, involving a sense of personal guilt and a voluntary turning away from sin, is demanded of all who have by act or purpose become sinners against God. The Spirit of God gives to all who will repent the gracious help of penitence of heart and hope of mercy, that they may believe unto pardon and spiritual life.
  9. Water Baptism
    We believe that Christian baptism is a sacrament signifying acceptance of the benefits of the atonement of Jesus Christ, to be administered to believers and as declarative to their faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior, and full purpose of obedience in holiness and righteousness. It is symbolic of being dead to sin and raised to a new life of righteousness in Jesus Christ. Baptism is only for those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and is an outward act of declaring an inward work of grace.
