Statement of Faith
We believe in the historic, orthodox Christian faith as expressed in the Apostle’s and Nicene Creeds and the Evangelical Statement of Faith.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, and inerrant Word of God. (II Timothy 3:15-17, II Peter 1:21)
We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30)
We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:34-35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return to earth in power and glory. (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11-13, Revelation 19:14-16)
We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of the human nature, and that only by God’s grace through faith alone are we saved. (John 3:16-19; John 5:24, Romans 3:23; Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5)
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are not unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28-29)? We believe in the spiritual unity of the believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:9, I Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:26-28)
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. And we believe that the gifts and power of the Holy Spirit are still available to the believer today. (Romans 8:13-14, I Corinthians 3:16; I Corinthians 6:19-20; I Corinthians 12:1-11, Ephesians 4:30; Ephesians 5:18)
