STATEMENT OF BELIEF

We believe in:

  • The one true and living God who eternally exists in three persons in unity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • The Divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scripture.

  • The original perfection of creation; the inherent corruptness of humanity through the Fall; the necessity of repentance and regeneration by grace and through faith in Christ alone, and the eternal separation from God of the finally unrepentant.

  • The virgin Birth, sinless life atoning death, triumphant Resurrection, ascension, and continuing intercession of our Lord Jesus Christ, His Second Coming, and eternal Kingdom reign.

  • The justification and sanctification of believers through the finished work of Christ, their security as they remain in Him, and their future resurrection in an incorruptible body.

  • The Sacrament of Baptism by immersion, and of the Lord's Supper.

  • The baptism of the Holy Spirit for believers with supernatural signs, empowering the Church for its mission in the world.

  • The gifts of the Holy Spirit for the building up of the Church and ministry to the world.

  • Christ's leadership of the Church through the ascension ministries of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, for the unity, maturity, and growth of the Church.

  • The privilege and responsibility of wise stewardship of all that God has given, including the practice of tithing to the local church.

  • Marriage is ordained by God in scripture for the exclusive union between one man and one woman, for their mutual help and comfort.
