Statement of Faith:
- There is only one true God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28: 19)
- Jesus Christ is God (John 10:30). He was born of a virgin. (Isaiah 7: 14, Matthew 1:23), lived a sinless life (Hebrews 4:15), died as a substitute for fallen man (II Corinthians 5:21, I Peter 3: 18), arose bodily (Matthew 28: 1-10), ascended to Heaven (Acts 1:9-11) and will return to earth personally in power and great glory. (Revelation 19).
- The Holy Spirit is God (Acts 5:3-4, 1 Corinthians 6: II). He convicts the world of sin (John 16:8-11), regenerates (Titus 3:3-5), indwells (I Corinthians 6:19), and empowers the believer to live a life of personal holiness and walk in obedience to the will of God. (Philippians 2:13).
- All men by nature are sinful and lost, making necessary the new birth. (Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23).
- Salvation is by grace alone, and is offered by God freely to all who will repent of their sins and receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord of their life (Ephesians 2:8-9).
- All who are saved (redeemed) will be raised to everlasting life and blessedness in Heaven (John 3:16), and the unsaved will be raised to everlasting punishment in hell. (II Thessalonians 1:8-9).
- All of the above statements are based on the Bible which is the infallible Word of God, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and is the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (II Timothy 3: 16-17).
