Statement of faith

We believe there is but One living and true God. In the unity of God there are three Persons, of one substance, power, and eternity: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who is the Word of the Father, begotten from everlasting of the Father, of one substance with the Father, took Manís nature in the womb of the Virgin Mary, so that two whole and perfect natures, Godhead and Manhood, were joined together in one Person, never to be divided; We believe in His sinless life, and in the sufficiency and substitution of His death on the cross for the sins of the whole world; in His bodily resurrection from the dead and His ascension to heaven; and in His bodily return to the earth to set up His eternal kingdom.

We believe that the Holy Spirit, proceeding from the Father and through the Son, is of One substance, majesty, and glory with the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit is active in the Church and witnesses to the world in fulfillment of the promise of Jesus Christ to His Apostles, (John 16:7)

We believe that the Bible contains all things necessary to salvation: so that whatever is not written therein, nor may be proved thereby, is not to be required of any man that it should be believed as an article of the Faith or thought necessary for salvation. We believe that all Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (2 Tim. 3:16) We believe that there are 66 canonical Books comprising the Old and New Testament, the authority of these books was never in any doubt in the Church. These 66 canonical books are without error in the original autographs.

We believe in the creation of the universe and all living things as a direct act of God, and that man in particular was made by the Eternal Triune God in His image and likeness. Mankind is not an accident of chance or evolution but the very image-bearer of God.

We believe in the fall of man and the subsequent depravity and sinfulness through corruption and death that has encompassed the whole human race, making man incapable of personal salvation before God without the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

We believe that man's greatest need is the gift of God - personal salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, apart from any works of the Mosaic law or any human merit.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of believers to everlasting life and fellowship with God, and of all non-believers to everlasting misery and the second death (Rev. 20:14).

We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers who are regenerated, baptized, and sealed by the Holy Spirit for an effective Christian life and witness

We believe that God's plan for this present age involves the evangelization of the world through the witness of every believer in Jesus Christ, and the establishment and growth of local churches as the means of accomplishing His purposes.
