Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible, both old and new testaments, is the Word of God, it is infallible and inspired and to submit to Jesus as Lord is to submit to the absolute authority of the Bible.
We believe in one eternal God, infinite and personal,--our Creator as well as our Redeemer, the Almighty, the Father. God has revealed Himself unto us as three eternal persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ is our Creator, God, manifested for us in the flesh, born of a virgin--truly man, truly God, but unmixed, crucified as a sacrifice for our sins and after totally satisfying the just judgement of God against us as sinners, He was raised from the dead, bodily, ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God, as the only true and living way to God.
We believe in the fall of man as recorded in Genesis 3, that though man is created in the image of God, and to this day he bears that image, the fall has resulted in absolute sinfulness and total depravity of man. We believe that there is none righteous, no not one, there is none that doeth good, none that seeks God. Man can only be saved by justifying God, believing and acknowledging the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and repenting, allowing God to justify us freely by grace.
We believe that water baptism is the true confession of repentance of dead works, and resurrection with and in union to Jesus, and it is the appeal to God for a good conscience, and salvation from this age.
We believe God has called us to a holy life by the power of the Spirit and the means of grace, prayer, the Word, fellowship, and worship.
We believe that we receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon us in the baptism of the Spirit--power to witness and have supernatural gifts to edify one another and the lost.
We believe in the communion elements and what they represent, the Body of Christ broken for our healing and reunity--the Blood of Jesus shed for the remission of our sins and the communion to renew our fellowship in Him.
We believe in the soon coming of our Lord Jesus, and our gathering together unto Him, the end of this age, the resurrection of all, saved and lost, the saved shall receive reward and the lost shall be expelled to receive eternal punishment.
