Our Statement of Faith
What We Believe
*We believe the Bible to be inspired, infallible, authoritative and inerrant Word of God.
(II Tim 3:15-17, II Peter 1:21).   

*We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Gen 1:1, Deut 6:4, Matt 28:19, John 10:30).

*We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33). His virgin birth (Isa 7:14, Matt 1:23, Luke 1:34-35). His sinless life (Heb 4:15, 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11). His vicarious and atoning death (1Cor 15:3, Eph 1:7, Hebrews 2:9). His resurrection (John 11:25, I Corth15:4). His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19). His personal return to earth in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Rev 19:11-16). 

*We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of the human nature and that all are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and that only by God’s grace through faith alone are we saved (John 3:16-19; 5:24, Rom 3:23, 5:8-9, Eph 2:8-10, Titus 3:5). 

*We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are not unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29). 

*We believe in the spiritual unity of the believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Rom 8:9, I Cor 12:12-24, Gal 3:26-28). 

*We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life (Rom 8:13-14, I Cor 3:16, 6:19-20, Eph 4:30, 5:18). 

*We believe that we as Christian are examples of the love of God in this world.  It is this (agape) love that we desire to possess and without which we have no right to call ourselves Christians (1 John 4:16-17).
