Statement of Faith

WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe in the Bible, both Old and New Testament, to be the inspired and infallible Word of God. The Bible in its original autograph is without error in whole or in part. (2 Tim. 3:16.)

We believe in the creation of the world and man as a direct act of God. (Genesis 1:1; John 10:30.)

We believe that God has existed from all eternity in three persons; God the Father, God the Son, and

God the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ was God, came in human flesh, being fully God and fully man without sin. (John 1:1; Gen. 1:1; John 10:30.)

We believe the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, was begotten of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died on the cross in payment for our sins, rose from the dead on the third day, ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father. (Is. 7:14; Heb. 7:25; 1John 4:10; Rev. 19:11-16.)

We believe that all men have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and are therefore under His wrath and just condemnation and that rebirth by the Holy Spirit is essential and an absolute necessity for one’s salvation. (Rom. 3:23, Titus 3:5-6; John 3:16-19; Eph.2:18-19.)

We believe that Salvation comes through belief in God and the completed work of Jesus on the cross, repentance of sins, and thus turning from sin and focusing on things of God. (Phil. 4:8.)

We believe that salvation is offered by grace as a gift to the sinner. One must accept this gift by faith in the sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, not trusting whatsoever in any personal works. (Eph. 2:8-9.)

We believe in the personal, visible, bodily return of Jesus Christ to earth and in the resurrection of   Christians to live eternally in Heaven with God. (I Thess. 4:13; Rev. 22:7, 20.)

We believe that God designed marriage to be the life-long union of one man and one woman, and only within the context of such a marriage does sexual intimacy have God's blessing.  (Gen. 2:20-24; Mark 10:2-9; Hebrews 13:4)  

We believe in a real and literal heaven and hell. (Matt 10:28, 13:42, 13:50; 25:40; Mark 9:43; Jude 1:7, Rev. 28:8)
