Statement of Faith

 I believe:

There is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.

I believe:

The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired without error.

I believe:

In God the Father, an infinite Person of Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayers; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

I believe:

In Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit.  I believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into Heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal, visible return to Earth.

 I believe:

In the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgement, and to regenerate sanctity, and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ. I believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every born again believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide.

I believe:

That all people are sinners by nature and by choice and, therefore, are under condemnation; that God regenerates through the Holy Spirit, those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord of their lives; that Jesus Christ fills the seeking Believer with the Holy Spirit and power for service, often subsequent to regeneration.

I believe:

In the universal church, the living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all Regenerated Persons are members.

 I believe:

That the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the church: 1) Baptism, and 2) the Lord’s Supper.

I believe:

In the personal, visible return of Christ to Earth and the establishment of His kingdom in the resurrection of the body, the final judgement, and eternal blessings of the righteous and endless suffering of the wicked.

The Christian’s Responsibility…

Is to walk in a manner worthy of his or her calling, one of a living sacrifice, not conforming to this world but being transformed to live a Christ-like life. This transformation occurs as the believer is obedient to Christ as Lord. Obedience grows as believers learn to yield to the Spirit of Christ in them, by confessing their sins, and living daily in submission to Christ’s teachings, producing a greater awareness of peace and joy in the believers. (Rom. 12:1-2; Gal. 2:20; Rom. 8:1-17; 6:15-18; 2 Cor. 3:5-6,18; 5:17; Eph. 2:10; 5:3-10; 1 John 1:8-2:1)
