Statement of Faith
What We Believe
Nature of God
We Believe that there is one true and living God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory and that this triune God created, upholds and governs all things.
We Believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love and that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of all people.
We Believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit
We Believe in the Holy Spirit, who convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, Who regenerates, sanctifies and empowers for ministry, all who believe in Christ. We Believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher and Guide.
We Believe that the Bible is the only inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God.
We Believe that He hears and answers prayer and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
We Believe in His virgin birth in His sinless life and in His miracles and teachings.
We Believe in His substitutionary atoning death, His resurrection and His ascension into heaven, where He sits at the right hand of the Father.
We Believe in His personal and visible return to earth and the establishment of His Kingdom on earth.
Gifts of the Spirit
We Believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all Biblical gifts of the Spirit.
We Believe that all PEOPLE are sinners by nature and choice and therefore regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential.
We Believe that repentance (turning away) from sin and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to come into a relationship with God.
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
We Believe that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit to empower the believer for service and that this occurs after salvation.
Resurrection of the Dead
We Believe in the resurrection of all people, both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto eternal life in heaven and those that are lost into eternal damnation in hell.
Faith in Practice
We Believe it is important to uphold the Scriptural practices of the early church. Therefore, we hold to the practice of water baptism and the regular taking of communion. We do not believe that either of these practices are essential for salvation, but that they serve as a demonstration of our living faith in Jesus Christ.
