Statement Of Faith

1. God

 

      God exists and is One, as expressed through the three persons of the Triunity – God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God is love.

2. The Bible

      The Bible is divinely inspired, true, and is God’s authoritative revelation to man, guiding us through life.

3.Creation

      God created the heavens and the earth as described in the Bible. We are caretakers and expressions of God's love for His creation.

4. Satan

      There was rebellion in the heavenlies over worship, where the satan’s desire was to ascend above God.

5. Man

      Mankind was created innocent and fell, becoming totally depraved and is in need of salvation through Christ. Mankind is the image bearer of God.

6. Jesus

      Jesus preexisted, was born of a virgin, is fully man and fully God, lived a perfect and sinless life, died for the sins of the world, and through His death, satisfied perfectly the penalty for sin. He rose again bodily, ascended to, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father. His return is imminent and He shall return to collect His bride. No one comes to the Father except through Him.

7. The Church

      The church is Christ’s body, left here to do the work of the kingdom in fulfilling the “Great Commission.”

8. Evidence

      The spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, and the evidence of that unity, is shown by how we love one another.
