STATEMENT OF FAITH

 

We believe that the Holy Bible is the divinely inspired, inerrant Word of God. It is our supreme standard for faith and practice. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without error for its matter. 2 Timothy 3: 16, 17, Psalms 19:7-10, 119:11, 89, 105

 

We believe in one, living and sovereign God, Who is the Creator and sustainer of all things. He is perfect, eternal and unchangeable. He exists equally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Ghost. He is a tri-une God Who has made Himself known to us in the Holy Bible. Genesis 1:1, Psalms 83:18, John 4:24

 

We believe that God created humanity in His image, for fellowship with Him. Having been tempted by Satan, man, by choice is now lost from fellowship with God and needs the salvation that is provided only by Jesus Christ. Genesis 1:26, 27, 3:22, John 3:3,15,16

 

We believe we are saved by grace through faith in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ and not of the works of any man. Anyone who receives Jesus Christ is regenerated or born again of the Holy Spirit and becomes a child of God. Ephesians 2:8,9, John 3:16

 

We believe that Jesus Christ is the (Son) second person of the God-head. He is the promised Messiah of the Old Testament, Who was born of the virgin Mary, given to reveal God, died to redeem man, rose from the dead to justify the believer, and is now seated at the right hand of the God (the Father) as our advocate and intercessor. He will return in visible and bodily form to raise the righteous from the dead to their final triumph and to judge the world. Philippians 2:6-8, Romans 5:9, 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17

 

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person in the God-head, Who was sent from God as Christ's representative here on earth. He was sent to convict the world of sin, their need for righteousness, to judge the wicked, to regenerate, cleanse from sin, teach, guide, strengthen, and perfect the saints. John 14:16,17, 26, 15:7-11

 

We believe that the Church was instituted by Jesus Christ as a vehicle for believers to covenant in the faith and fellowship of the Gospel. Its purpose is to exalt and worship the Lord, to edify and strengthen believers, and extend the kingdom of God by making disciples. Ephesians 3:21, 4:16, Matthew 28:19,20

 

We believe the ordinances of the Church are Baptism and the Lord's Supper. Baptism is the immersion of a believer following a profession of faith and obedience to Jesus Christ. The Lord's Supper is observed by believers in remembrance of the sacrificial death of our Lord Jesus Christ. Matthew 28: 18-20, Romans 6:3-11, 1 Corinthians 11:23-34
