Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the only inerrant Word of God. Every word contained in it is inspired by the Spirit of God, is God breathed and is therefore binding for all mankind. It is our ultimate and infallible authority for faith and practice. It is from the Bible that we are able to know the truth about God, His attributes, character, plans and purposes; creation including man’s creation; man, sin, grace, redemption, resurrection, and the life to come; and all the doctrines essential to the Christian Faith and practice.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is omnipotent, that is He is all-powerful. He is omnipresent, that is He is present throughout all creation but not limited by it. He is omniscient, that is nothing is hidden from His sight. In all things He is limited by nothing other than His own nature and character. We believe the God we serve is holy, righteous, good, severe, loving and full of mercy and grace. He created the heavens and the earth and everything in them and all of it was very good. He is the Creator, Sustainer, and Governor of everything that has been made.

We believe in the true deity and full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutionary and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe in the full deity of the Holy Spirit acknowledging Him together with the Father and the Son in the works of creation and redemption. We believe in the Holy Spirit’s present ministry, by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a godly life and through whom the Christian is empowered and gifted for ministry.

We believe that because of Adam’s sin, all mankind is in rebellion against God. For the salvation of such lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary.

We believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith in Christ’s atoning death alone and that faith without works is dead.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved to the resurrection of life forever, and those who are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus: that all believers corporately compose the body of Christ, the Church, His Bride of which He is the head.
