Our Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (1 Timothy 3:16; Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 4:4-6; 1 Peter 1:2; Romans 8:14-17).
We believe in the deity and humanity of Christ, born of a virgin, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His present rule as Head of the Church, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Luke 1:30-35; John 1:14, 5:39; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4).
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful humankind, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential and that we are saved by grace through faith, apart from works; that the sinner who repents and personally accepts the finished work of Christ on the cross becomes a child of God, is made a new creature, and is indwelt by the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 1:12, 3:36; 2 Corinthians 5:17; John 14:17; Hebrews 9:11-14).
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. (John 14:17; John 16:13-15; Romans 8:14-17).
We believe in the resurrection of the saved and their eternal life with God, and the resurrection of the lost and their eternal separation from God. (1 Corinthians 15:53; Job 19:25-27; John 3:16; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 20:5-6, 20:11-15).
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, with equality across racial, gender and class differences. (1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 2:13-14).
We believe in the ministerial duty of followers of Christ to minister directly to those in need of food, shelter, clothing, compassionate care, and restoration; and particularly to children in such need. (1 Timothy 4:6-16).
