Our Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

We believe in the Trinity as eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (2 Corinthians 13:14)

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth and sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious death and atonement through His shed Blood, His bodily resurrection, and His ascension to the right hand of the Father as both the High Priest and sacrificial Lamb of God. (1 Timothy 3:16; Romans 3:25-26)

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, self-effort is futile and, thus, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. (Hebrews 9:22)

We believe in Christ’s call for us to make disciples of all nations, doing all that we can to help form God’s covenant children into the image of Christ. (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 5:25-27)

We believe marriage to be the uniting of one man and one woman in a lifelong covenant before God (Matthew 19:4-6), and that any sexual activity outside of this boundary constitutes sexual immorality, which is forbidden by Scripture. (Hebrews 13:4; 1 Corinthians 6:18; Leviticus 18:1-30)

We believe that since mankind is created in God’s image, human life is of inestimable worth and significance in all its dimensions, from conception to the grave. (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 139:13-14)

We believe that Baptism is for believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and is to be administered by immersion, thus bearing witness to the gospel of Christ’s death, burial and resurrection for us, and our own new life in Him.
(Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4)

We believe that Communion, when shared by believers, witnesses to the saving power of the gospel, and to the unity of His church, among other things. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

We believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit as on the day of Pentecost, and in the continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit as evidenced in charismatic gifts and ministries, and in the fruit of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer. (Acts 2:4; Acts 10:46; Acts 19:6; Ephesians 4:11; 1 Corinthians 12:8-11; Galatians 5:22-23)

We believe that Christ will one day return in power and great glory, resurrecting the lost to eternal punishment and the saved to eternal life as He firmly establishes His everlasting kingdom. (Acts 1:8; Revelation 1:7; Daniel 7:14)
