Declaration of Faith
We believe in Jesus Christ, fully God and fully man (John 1:1-18; Phil. 2:6-8), His virgin birth (Mt. 1:18-25; Lk. 1:26-38), His sinless life (2 Cor. 5:21; Heb. 4:15), His miracles (Jn. 30:30,31), His substitutionary and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross (Rom. 5:1-12; 2 Cor. 5:16-21; Heb. 9-10), His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Acts 1:9-11; 7:55,56; Eph. 1:20-23), and His personal, physical return in power and glory (Zech. 14; Rev. 19).
We believe in one infinite God (Ps. 90:2; 1 Tim. 1:17) in whom are three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:19, 2 Cor. 13, 14, Eph. 1:3-14).
We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit (John 14:16), who is fully God (Acts 5:3,4); that He indwells every born-again believer (Rom. 8:9-11; 1 Cor. 6:19), giving power to live a godly life (Gal. 5:22,23; Eph. 4:30; 1 John 2:20-27).
We believe that the Bible is the only verbally, fully inspired Word of God (2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:20,21), inerrant and infallible in matters of both fact and faith (Mt. 5:17; John 10:35); that is has absolute authority over all earthly wisdom (1 Cor. 1:18-31) and that it teaches us what we are to believe and how we are to live (James 1:19-27).
We believe that man has a sinful nature from conception (Ps. 51:5; Ps. 58:3), is totally dead in sin (Eph. 2:1), unable to save himself (Tit. 1:15,16), and in need of a Savior (Rom. 3).
We believe salvation consists of the remission of sins, the imputation of Christ’s righteousness and the gift of eternal life received by faith alone, apart from works (Eph. 2:8, 9; Tit. 3:5). All who repent of their sins and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, being freely justified by the Father are born again by the Holy Spirit (Romans 1-5; Eph. 1:3-14)
We believe in the existence of Satan (Luke 11:18), his warfare against God (Acts 26:18, 2 Cor. 4:4; 1 John 3:8-10), and his defeat on the cross (Col. 2:15) for eternity (Rev. 20:10).
We believe in the literal, supernatural creation (Gen. 1,2; Job 38-41) – everything existing according to God’s power (Col. 1:15, 17).
We believe in the resurrection of the saved unto everlasting life and blessedness in heaven (Dan. 12:2; John 5:28-29; 14:1-3; Rev. 21,22) and in the resurrection of the lost unto everlasting conscious punishment in hell (Rev. 20:11-15).
We believe The Church is the Body of Christ, composed of all born-again believers (Eph. 4:1-16; 5:25-27; Col. 1:18), meeting together in local assemblies for worship and fellowship (Acts 2:42-47; Phil. 1:1; 1 Th. 1: Rev. 1:4).
