Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God. We believe that it is the final authority, is without error, and is applicable for our daily lives. We believe the Bible is the only scripture inspired of God and there are no other inspired scriptures. (2 Tim 3:16)
We believe in one God who exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We believe in God as creator and sustainer of all things. We believe that God is eternal, holy, and loving. (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19)
We believe that man was created in the image of God and was designed to be in loving relationship with God. We believe that because of man's sinful disobedience, mankind was separated from the loving intimacy that God intended. We believe that mankind's greatest and deepest need is to be forgiven of sin and restored back into right relationship with God and thus fulfill his ultimate purpose which is to worship God and fully enjoy Him forever. (Genesis 1:26-30; Genesis 2:7; Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:9)
We believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God and second member of the trinity. We believe that Jesus willingly came into our world as fully man, while continuing to be fully God. We believe that Jesus lived a completely sinless life on our behalf, died a sinner's death in our place, physically rose from the dead declaring victory over sin and death, and
ascended to heaven where He is currently seated at the right hand of God as our advocate and intercessor. (Luke 1:35; Matthew 3:17; 1 Peter 2:24; Luke 24:46-47; Romans 8:34; Hebrews 12:2)
We believe that salvation comes through the repentance of our sins and by believing upon the person and work of Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus' sinless life makes us righteous before God and His substitutionary death removes all our sin and establishes our eternal security. We believe that salvation cannot be earned or purchased and can only be received as a free gift from God. (Romans 5:1; John 2:1-2; Romans 10:9; Ephesians 2:8).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third member of the trinity. We believe that the Holy Spirit enters the life of a person when they accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We believe that the indwelling of the Holy Spirit is essential for and evidence of a person's salvation. We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. We believe that the Holy Spirit gives gifts for serving one another and empowers believers to live holy and effective lives for the glory of God. (John 16:8-11; Acts 2:38; Romans 8:9; 1 Peter 4:10)
We believe that the church consists of those who believe upon Jesus as Lord and Savior. We believe that the church is one body with many members, unified through faith in Jesus. We believe that the church is called to gather together regularly for fellowship, teaching, prayer, and communion. We believe that the church exists to continue the work of Jesus by declaring the gospel, making disciples, and demonstrating God's love to the world. (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:41-47; Acts 20:28; Romans 12:5; 1 Corinthians 12:27)
We believe that people were created with both body and soul. We believe that after the body dies, the soul of a person continues on into eternity. We believe that heaven is the eternal destination for all people who have placed their faith and hope in the person and work of Jesus Christ. We believe that a literal hell is the eternal destination for those who have rejected Jesus as their Lord and Savior. We believe that the day is coming when Jesus will judge both the living and the dead. (1 Peter 1:3-5; Philippians 3:20; 1 Peter 4:5; 2 Timothy 4:1)
