Statement of Faith

 

The Bible:  We believe the Bible in its original text is the divinely inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God.  It is the supreme authority for faith and life: sufficient, true, relevant and useful in the world today and always.  Scripture reveals the character and love of God to us, His will for our lives, and the path by which we can receive salvation.  (2 Tim 3:16-17; 2 Pet 1:20-21; Deut 4:2; Deut 10:17; John 3:16; Rom 12:2)

 

The Triune God:  We believe there is one true God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is the infinitely perfect Creator, Sustainer, and Ruler of all things.  (Eph 4:4-6; Matt 28:19; Rev 1:8; Gen 1:1; Heb 1:3; 1 Chr 29:11)

 

Jesus:  We believe Jesus is the Son of God who became human and dwelt among us.  We believe in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His atoning death on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father in heaven, and His physical and visible return to this earth in power and glory as Judge of the living and the dead. (John 1:14; Matt 1:23; Heb 4:15; Acts 2:22-24; Rom 8:34; Acts 1:11; Philippians 2:5-11)

 

The Holy Spirit:  We believe at the moment of salvation the Holy Spirit dwells within each believer, making us a new creation, born again in the Spirit of Christ.  The Holy Spirit enables us to understand spiritual truth, convicts us of our sins, guides us to live a godly life and seals us in Christ for the day of redemption. (2 Cor 5:17; John 3:5-8; 1 Cor 2:14; John 16:8; Gal 5:22-23; Eph 1:13)

Sin:  We believe Adam (the first man) and Eve (the first woman) rebelled against God’s perfect plan in the garden of Eden.  As a result, all people inherit a sinful nature which separates us from the Holy God.  All fall short and are in desperate need of a Savior and forgiveness. (Gen 2:7, 17, 21-22; Gen 3:6-13; Rom 5:12; Rom 3:23-24)

 

Salvation:  We believe that all people will stand before the judgement seat of Christ.  On our own, we would all be found guilty.  Salvation cannot be earned by way of good works, but only through faith in Jesus.  God graciously offers the gift of salvation and eternity with Him to all who believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died on the cross and rose from the dead to pay the penalty for our sins. (2 Cor 5:10; Rom 6:23; Eph 2:8-9; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Titus 3:4-7)

 

The Church:  We believe Christ is the head of the Church which consists of all true believers, who through faith have received Christ as their Savior.  As His church, we must dedicate ourselves to spurring each other on toward love and good deeds; meeting together; and encouraging, teaching and admonishing one another as we submit to His authority over our lives. (Eph 1:22-23; 1 Cor 12:27; Heb 10:24-25; Col 3:16)

 

Evangelism and Discipleship:  We believe that the ministries of evangelism (proclaiming the message of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ) and discipleship (helping followers of Christ grow up into maturity in Christ) are the responsibilities of all followers of Jesus Christ.  (Matt 28:18-20; Rom 10:9-15; 1 Pet 3:15)
