Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, true and written Word of God.

 

  • We believe that there is only One God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and, God the Holy Spirit.

 

  • We believe Jesus Christ is God. We believe in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His death that paid for our sin through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension/rising up to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory. (John 1:1; Matthew 1:18,25; Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 9:15-22; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 9:27-28)

 

  • We believe in the blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the body of Christ, by Christ Himself at His return.

 

  • We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ.

 

  • We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing prayer.

 

  • We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.

 

  • We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy and separated life in the present world.

 

  • We believe in eternal life, and that through belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, we spend eternity with the Lord in Heaven. We believe that in rejecting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we receive eternal suffering in hell. (Matthew 25:31-46; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

 

  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, that all believers are members of His body, the Church. (Philippians 2:1-4)

 

  • We believe God’s design for sexual intimacy is to be expressed only within the context of marriage. God instituted marriage between one man and one woman as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5-6; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9)

 

  • We believe that God created all human beings in His image. Therefore, we believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; that we must honor the physical and spiritual needs of all people; following Christ’s example, we believe that every person regardless of race, color, tribe or nationality should be treated with love, dignity and respect. (Psalm 139:13; Isaiah 49:1; Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 22:37-39; Romans 12:20-21; Galatians 6:10)
