Statement of Faith

We believe in the verbal plenary inspiration of the Scriptures consisting of the Old and New Testaments.  We believe they are inerrant in the original writings and that they are the supreme and final authority in faith and life (2 Tim. 3:16, 17; 2 Pet. 1:19-21; Psalm 119:105).

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Duet. 6:4; Mark 12:29; John 1:14; 1 John 5:7).

We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man.  We believe that He was born of a virgin by the Holy Spirit and lived a sinless life (John 1:1,18; Phil. 2:5-8; Luke 1:31-35; Heb. 4:15).
We believe in the Person and Work of the Holy Spirit.

1.  He is given personal names (John 16:7,8;16).
2.  He is identified with the Father and the Son (Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14).
3.  He is identified with believers (Rom. 8:16; Titus 3:5).

We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred both physical and spiritual death, which is separation from God, that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, causing them to sin in thought, word, and deed and bringing them to a place for a need of God and redeeming work (Gen. 1:26,27; Gen. 2:17; Gen. 3:1-7; Gen. 5:5; Rom. 3:23; Rom. 5:12; Rom. 3:10-19; Eph. 2:1-3; John 3:16-18; John 5:28, 29).

We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins, as a representative and substituitonary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified solely on the ground of His shed blood (Rom. 5:6-8; 8:32; 1 Tim. 2:5,6; 1 Pet. 3:18; John 3:16; Eph. 2:8,9; Rom. 5:8-10; 2 Cor. 5:21; Matt. 26:28; Heb. 9:22; Heb. 9:26-28).

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of Jesus, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present ministry there for us as High Priest and Advocate
(Matt. 28:5-7; Acts 1:8; Rom. 8:34; 1 Cor. 15:3-8; Eph. 1:20-22; 1 Pet. 1:3; Heb. 7:24-25; Heb. 9:24). 1 Pet. 1:3;

We believe in a future physical return of Jesus Christ (Matt. 28:8; Mark 16:6;
John 13:1-3; John 20:1-10; Acts 1:11; Phil. 3:20; 1 Thess. 4:13-18; Rev. 1:20-22).

We believe in the personality and work of Satan (Gen. 3:1; Matt. 13:39; 1 Pet. 5:8).

We believe in the eternal salvation of regenerate man and eternal judgment of the unregenerate man (Luke 16:26; John 5:24; John 6:40; John 10:28 ; John 3:18;
John 3:36; Rev. 20:10).

We believe that all who trust the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, God’s provision for sin, are born again, and thereby become children of God.  That the Bible teaches sanctification (being set apart) for the Christian.  That the Holy Spirit baptizes every believer once, at the moment of conversion, and indwells him thereafter.  We believe the Holy Spirit enables each believer for service by giving each a special gift for ministry.  We believe that each believer is filled with the Holy Spirit as he/she yields control of his/her life to Christ.  We believe the evidence of the presence and power of the Holy Spirit is the fruit of the Spirit in the believer’s life demonstrated by living which pleases God (John 3:6; Titus 3:5; James 1:8; 1 Pet. 1:23; John 1:12,-13; Rom. 8:9; 1 Cor. 12:13; Eph. 1:13; Rom. 12:1-8; 1 Cor. 12:7-10; 28-30; Eph. 4:11-16; 1 Pet. 4:11; Eph. 5:18;  Gal. 5:19-26; 2 Cor. 6:17; James 4:4).
