Statements of Faith

We believe that there is one living and true God who eternally exists in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that He has revealed Himself to be perfect in love, holiness and righteousness; that He created all, upholds all and governs all. (Matthew 12:25-27; John 1:1-2, 10:30, 14:26, 15:26).

We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are given by divine inspiration and are the written Word of God, the final authority for the lives of believers in every culture and age, and the infallible rule of faith and practice. (Psalm 119:89; Isaiah 40:8; John 5:39-40; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12).

We believe that man was created in Gods image, was tempted by the devil, and subsequently rebelled against God. Mankind is now fallen in nature, and give evidence to this condition in sinful deeds. (Genesis 3:1-13, 16-19; Romans 5:12-19, 7:14-25, 8:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:17-18; Galatians 4:4-7; Ephesians 2:8-10; James 1:18).

We believe in Jesus Christ, God's one and only Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit, both true God and true man.  (Matthew 1:20-23, 5:15-18; Romans 1:4; 1 Corinthians 15:1-17; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 2:4).

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ. (John 16:7-15; Acts 1:8, 2:38-39; Romans 8:5-16; 1 Corinthians 12:7-11; 2 Corinthians 3:17-18; Galatians 3:2-5, 5:16-25).

We believe in God the Father, an infinite personal Spirit, perfect in wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men through His providence and His power, (Genesis 1:1; Psalm 19:1, 102:25-27; Matthew 7:11; Ephesians 1:3-6).

We believe in the universal Church, the living spiritual body of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members. (Matthew 16:18-19; Luke 22:14-20; Acts 2:38-41; Romans 6:3-4; 1 Corinthians 11:23-31).

We believe in the personal, visible return of Christ to earth to raise the dead, judge the world, accomplish his Glorious Kingdom and bestow eternal blessing on the righteous. This is the hope of the church. (Matthew 24:30; Luke 9:1-2; 2 Corinthians 4:4-5, 10:3-5; Ephesians 6:10-17; Colossians 2:15; Hebrews 2:14-15; 2 Peter 3:8-9).
