Statement of Faith

  • We believe in the verbal inspiration of both the Old and New Testaments, i.e., that the very words of the original Scriptures are infallible and inerrant and that they are our final and absolute authority in every area of life and knowledge. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; Isaiah 40:8)
  • We believe in one God, eternally existing in three coequal persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (2 Corinthians 1:21-22; Ephesians 4:4-6)
  • We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and that He is both undiminished deity and genuine humanity in one person forever. (Luke 1:35; Matthew 1:23; John 1:1 & 1:14)
  • We believe that God the Holy Spirit is a personal being who convicts the world of sin and who regenerates, indwells, empowers, guides, and bestows spiritual gifts on believers, and who seals them eternally for God. (John 16:8; Titus 3:5; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Acts 1:8; Romans 8:14; 1 Corinthians 12:4; 2 Corinthians 1:22)
  • We believe that man was created by a direct act of God in His image, not from previously existing life, that all men sinned in Adam (the historical father of the entire human race) and thus incurred both physical and spiritual death; and that all men have inherited sinful nature. (Genesis 1:27; Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:1-3; Romans 5:12-13)
  • We believe that Jesus Christ died as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins and that through faith in Him as Lord and Savior, we are declared righteous by God. (1 John 2:2; John 3:16; Romans 3:22)
  • We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, totally apart from human merit, and that the experience of regeneration produces a new creature in Christ, eternally secure. (Ephesians 2:8-9; 2 Corinthians 5:17; John 10:27-29)
  • We believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead and that He ascended into heaven, where He continually ministers as our great High Priest and Advocate. (Luke 24:1; Hebrews 4:14; 1 John 2:1)
  • We believe that this age will be consummated by the literal, visible, bodily return of Jesus Christ to this earth. (Hebrews 9:28; Revelations 22:12)
  • We believe in the resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost. (Acts 24:15; John 3:16-18)
  • We believe that all believers are under the mandate of Jesus Christ to proclaim the Gospel to the world. (Matthew 28:19)
  • We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We therefore are called to defend, protect and value all human life. (Psalm 139)
