STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, perfect in love and holiness, Who 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 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 life to Him by guiding, teaching, sanctifying, and filling them.
We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired 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.
We believe in the resurrection of the body. At death, the spirits of the saved go immediately to be with the Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven, and the unsaved descend immediately into hell until the final Day of judgment.
We believe that the Holy Spirit gives to every true believer spiritual gift(s). The purpose of spiritual gifts is to enable the church to fulfill its mission of exalting Christ, empowering believers and evangelizing the world
We believe that believers are to uniquely demonstrate their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ through baptism and communion.
We believe that the church of Jesus Christ is to be the salt of the earth and the light to the world.
