Statement of Faith & Life
A / We believe that there is one God. He is infinite and perfect, eternally existing in three distinct persons, the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit, each possessing the nature and perfections of deity, as well as the characteristics of personality. We believe that God is the creator of all things. We believe that God created individually the various groups of living beings, including mankind, as special acts of creation rather than through evolution.B / We believe in Jesus Christ as fully human and fully God. We believe in his virgin birth by the Holy Spirit, His sinless life, His miracles, His death on the cross bearing the sin of all mankind, His bodily resurrection from the dead, His ascension into heaven where He now is seated at the right hand of God, and His return to take the church to be with Him and to destroy the works of Satan.
C / We believe the Holy Spirit is fully God, and that as a result of salvation, the Holy Spirit lives in us, empowers us to live the Christian life and gifts us for spiritual ministry.
D / We believe that Satan is real, the enemy of God, the author of sin, and the seducer of mankind.
E / We believe that the first man, Adam, was created in the image of God. Adam sinned and, though the image of God has not been lost, as a consequence, all people are now born guilty before God and with a nature in rebellion against Him.
F / We believe that Jesus Christ by His death on the cross made a perfect atonement for sin; that salvation is found only through Him; that all who believe in Him have the forgiveness of sins through His shed blood.
G / We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Bible, which is therefore inerrant and infallible in the original autographs. We believe in the sole authority of the Bible, and therefore reject any claim that there is authority in tradition or in any supposed further revelation.
H / We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust; the believers to the everlasting presence and enjoyment of God, and the unbelievers to everlasting conscious punishment.
I / We believe that the Church, the body of Christ is comprised of believers from every tribe, kindred, and tongue and is seen organized in local churches in accordance with the scripture.
J / In our faith walk, we aim to guard and keep high standards for our individual testimonies, lest we be hindered or distracted as we strive to live faithfully for Christ in our society.
