STATEMENT OF FAITH

 

 

 

We believe that the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God; the only complete and final revelation of God to man; and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried.

 

We believe that God is spirit and infinite; that the Godhead eternally exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, and that these three are one God.

 

We believe in the absolute Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; that He is very God existing from eternity, coequal with the Father and the Holy Spirit; that in His humanity He never ceased to be God; and that He was miraculously begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.

 

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, triumphing over all evil, and that all that believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.  We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present life there for us as High Priest   and Advocate.

 

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a Divine Person; that He is equal with the Father and the Son, that He convicts of sin, righteousness and judgment, bears witness to the truth; that He guides, teaches, and indwells every true child of God and that with Him the believer is given power and sealed in Christ until the day of redemption.

 

We believe that God created the heavens and the earth, including all life each after its own kind, by a direct act and not by the process of evolution.

 

We believe the Scriptures teach that men and women are created in God’s image. Adam was created by a direct act of God as described in Genesis 1 and not from any previously existing form of life. By voluntary transgression he fell from his state of innocence, in consequence of which all mankind are now sinners by nature and by choice and therefore under just condemnation to everlasting, conscious punishment, separated from God.

 

We believe in the existence of Satan, sin and evil powers, and that all these have been defeated by God in the cross of Christ."

 

We believe in the blessed hope that Jesus Christ will soon return to this earth, personally, visibly, and unexpectedly, in power and great glory, to gather His elect, to raise the dead, to judge the nations, and to bring His Kingdom to fulfillment.

 

We believe that the purpose of the Church on earth is to preach the Gospel of Christ and worship God. Remembering His death through the ordinance of the Lord’s supper and proclaiming our faith through baptism.
