What We Believe

OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH

Our statement of faith is based upon the foundational truths found in God's Word.

The Bible

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, absolutely without error, and the only infallible rule of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

God

God's revelation of Himself in the Bible shows Him to exist as one God in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit (John 1:1-3John 10:30John 14:9, Colossians 1:15-17).

Jesus

The Lord Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, He led a sinless life, He bore our sins, sicknesses and afflictions, He bodily resurrected from the dead and ascended to the right hand of the Father, and this same Jesus will return again to earth (Matthew 1:18-23Hebrews 4:15, 1 Peter 2:24, 1 Corinthians 15:12-14Acts 2:32-36, Romans 8:34John 14:2-3, 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18).

Salvation

All men are lost apart from the saving grace of Jesus Christ, and sin is cleansed and salvation is received only through personal repentance and faith in the atoning blood of Jesus Christ ( Romans 10:9-10Titus 3:5-7,  Acts 4:12Acts 16:30).

Holy Spirit

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit and the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:4-8Acts 8:14-17Acts 19:1-7Romans 12:6-81 Corinthians 12:4-11).

Ordinances of the Church

Communion. Taking the bread and wine as remembering the sacrifice Jesus gave of His Blood and Body on the Cross (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
Water Baptism. By immersion in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and in the name of Jesus (Matthew 28:19,  Mark 16:16Romans 6:4-8).

Marriage

The Biblical definition of marriage is a covenant between one man and one woman (Matthew 19:4-6).
