Statement Of Faith

What We Believe

We believe that Scripture consists of the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament as originally created and given by the Holy Spirit, and is objectively the Word of God written.

We believe Scripture reveals only one living and true God, who exists in the three persons of the Godhead: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. These three are one God, the same in substance, equal in power and glory.

We believe in the full deity and full humanity of Jesus Christ, in his virgin birth, his sinless life, his miracles, his propitiatory death, his bodily resurrection, his ascension to the right hand of God the Father, his present rule over and intercession for the Church, and his visible return in power and glory.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit; whose work of regeneration is essential for conversion to Christ. By the Spirit’s sanctifying power, which indwells all believers in Christ, we are enabled to live godly lives of worship and service.

We believe the church as established by its Head Jesus Christ exists for the edification of the family of God, and is the agent for expanding God’s kingdom of peace, justice and joy in the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of every person for the final day of judgment before the Lord Jesus Christ — the lost unto eternal punishment and the saved unto eternal life.
