Statement of Faith

  • We believe in one God, Creator of all things, perfect in love and holiness Who eternally exists as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and entered human form by the miracle of the virgin birth, that He lived a sinless life, and that He died on the cross, shedding His blood for us, in our place for our sins. We believe that He rose again on the third day and now sits at the right hand of God as our advocate.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is God. His ministry is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. We believe that He brings about the new birth, indwells, baptizes, seals, anoints and endows all who are regenerated with spiritual gifts. The Holy Spirit also leads believers who daily surrender their lives to Him by guiding, teaching, sanctifying, and filling them.
  • We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired, inerrant Word and is the sole authority for all Christian faith and life.
  • We believe that people are created in the image of God. At that same time, because of Adam’s sin, all people are sinful by nature and choice. Apart from forgiveness in Jesus Christ, all are lost and alienated from God. But all who trust in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.
  • We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, not by works of any kind.
  • We believe that the Church consists of all who trust in Jesus Christ as Savior.
  • We believe in the priesthood of all believers, and that every born again person has direct access to God and has the responsibility for personal growth in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that God hears and answers prayers today.
  • We believe that believers are to uniquely demonstrate their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ through baptism and communion and to seek to grow in a closer relationship with Him.
  • We believe that the Church of Jesus Christ is to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. That the Holy Spirit works through believers to enable the Church to fulfill its mission of exalting Christ, empowering believers and evangelizing the world.
  • We believe in the resurrection of the body. Upon death, spirits of those who know the Lord Jesus Christ go immediately to be with Him in Heaven, and the spirits of the unsaved descend immediately into hell.  
  • We believe in the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. That He will come for His bride, the Church, and raise all people to judgment, bringing eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to those who have rejected Christ.
