Statement of Faith

We believe in…

The Bible: The verbal inspiration, and reliability of the Holy Scriptures (2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:20).

The Trinity: There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:18-20).

Jesus Christ: His eternal deity, virgin birth, sinless life, atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension and imminent return (John. 1:1; Isa. 7:14, Luke. 1:26-38).

The Holy Spirit: That He dwells in the heart of every believer to impart the character of Christ, and comes upon God’s people in power to equip them for ministry. Spiritual gifts are bestowed on believers today, and are necessary for the church to function as God intended (Acts 2:38-39; Gal. 5:22-23; 1 Cor. 12:4-11; 1 Cor.14).

Forgiveness of sins: Available only through the blood of Jesus (Matt. 26:27-28).

Salvation: By grace, through faith, apart from any works of our own (Eph. 2:8-9; John. 3:16).

Spiritual Healing: For the whole man, through the stripes of Jesus (Isa. 53:5).

The Lord’s Supper: A covenant meal celebrating our unity with Jesus and one another.  It is one of the church ordinances along with Water Baptism (Luke 22:19-20, 1 Cor. 10:16-17).

Water Baptism: A public testimony of our identification with Jesus in His death and resurrection life.  It is one of the church ordinances along with the Lord’s Supper (Rom. 6:3-4).

Worship: Our purpose is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever (1 Pet. 2:9).

Missions: Our call is to take the good news of LIFE in Jesus to a lost and hurting world (Matt. 28:19-20).
