Statement of Faith
  • We believe in the Scripture of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired of God and inerrant in the Original writings.  We believe the scriptures are the supreme and final authority in faith and life.
  • We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, each having precisely the same nature, attributes, and perfections, and worthy of the same worship and obedience.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man.  He was eternally begotten  of the Father, conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary.  We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins as a substitutionary sacrifice, that his crucified body was raised from the dead and that he ascended into heaven to appear before the Father as our High Priest, Advocate, and Mediator.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit took up His abode in the world in a special sense on the day of Pentecost, dwells in every believer, and by His baptism unites all Christians in one body, the Church.
  • We believe that salvation was accomplished solely by the finished work of Christ shedding His blood upon the cross, and that nothing on the part of man can avail for salvation.  We believe that salvation was provided for the whole world, and that whoever believes in Jesus Christ receives the new birth, becomes a partaker of the divine nature, and thus becomes a child of God, once and for all, forever.
  • We believe in "that blessed hope", the personal, pre-millennial, imminent return of Jesus Christ, in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, in the reward and everlasting conscious blessedness of the just, and in the judgment and everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
