Statement of Faith

The Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without error. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21)

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14)

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead, ascended to Heaven, and will one day return to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (II Corinthians 5:21; I Corinthians 15:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14-15; Revelation 19:11-16)

The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation to provide power for living, understanding of spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily. (John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13-14, 5:18)

Humanity is of great value and worth having been created in the image of God. Furthermore, humanity has tremendous potential for good. However, sin separates people from God and causes many problems in life. (Genesis 1:27; Romans 3:23)

Salvation, the forgiveness of sin and the promise of eternal life, is a free gift from God available to all who put their faith and trust in jesus Christ. A proper faith response includes genuine repentance, confession and baptism by immersion. (John 3:16; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:23, 10:9)

The Church is the body of Christ on earth and exists to be a God-honoring community that makes authentic disciples of Jesus Christ. (I Corinthians 12:27; I Peter 2:9; Acts 2:42-47; Matthew 28:18-20)

The Future of humanity will be determined by their relationship to God through Jesus Christ. All people were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin in Hell, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation in Heaven. (John 5:28-29; Matthew 25:46; Romans 6:23)
