our statement of faith

  1. The Scripture
    We believe that the Scriptures of both Old and New Testaments constitute the inspired Word of God. We believe in its inerrancy, its entire trustworthiness, its completeness as a revelation of God's will for the salvation of men and women, and its divine and final authority for all matters of Christian faith and life.

  2. The Trinity
    We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three coequal persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

  3. Christ
    We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true Man, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross as an atoning sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. He arose bodily from the dead and ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Father, He now intercedes as our High Priest and Advocate.

  4. The Holy Spirit
    We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit during this age is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, bring enlightenment and conviction concerning God's revealed truth, to regenerate the sinner, and to indwell, sanctify, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.

  5. Humankind
    We believe that men and women, created in the image of God, have fallen into sin and so are subject to God's wrath and condemnation, inwardly depraved, and apart from grace, incapable of returning to God.

  6. Salvation
    We believe that the obedience and shed blood of Jesus Christ, the risen Lord, provide the only ground for the justification of all who believe, and that only such as receive Jesus Christ through faith are born of the Holy Spirit so as to become children of God.

  7. The Church
    We believe in the unity and common priesthood of all true believers, who together form the one universal Church, the Body of which Christ is the Head.

  8. The Return of Christ
    We believe in the imminent return of Christ to judge the world. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, of the unbeliever to final condemnation and everlasting punishment.
