Statement of Belief

The Bible the Scriptures, (Old and New Testaments) are the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings, and is the complete authority for all Christian faith and life.

God-There is but one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three manifestations: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.


Jesus Christ
-Jesus Christ is the true God and man both, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross, the complete and final sacrifice for our sin according to the Scriptures. Furthermore, He rose bodily from the dead, ascended into the heaven, where He, at the right hand of the majesty on high. He is now High Priest and Advocate.


Holy Spirit
-The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. Then and in this age, to convict mankind of their sins, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.


Man
-Man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and is therefore lost. And only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.


Salvation
-The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe.  And only those who receive Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.


The Return of Jesus Christ
-The personal, premillennial, and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ is our hope and has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.


Future Events
-There will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead and to the believer an everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; and to the unbeliever judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.


The Church
-The true Church is composed of all such persons, who through saving Faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the Head.       


Baptism and Communion
-Water baptism by immersion soon after accepting Christ as personal Savior is a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to new life. And the Lord's Supper is a memorial service setting forth in sacred and symbolic manner, the death of the Lord Jesus Christ; all true believers and only believers should share in it.
