Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible is the inspired and infallible and authoritative Word of God.
(II Timothy 3:15 -16)
We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
(Deut. 6:4; Matthew 28:19; Mark 12:29; John 5:17-30).
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal future return to the earth in power and glory to rule over the nations.
(Isaiah 7:14; Hebrews 7:26; Acts 2:22; I Corinthians 15:3; Acts 1:9-11)
We believe man was created good and upright, but fell from that place of perfection into a condition of spiritual depravity.
(Genesis 1:26-27; 2:17; Jeremiah 17:9; Romans 5:12-19)
We believe the only means of our being cleansed from sin is through repentance and through faith in the precious blood of Christ. Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.
(Luke 24:47; Romans 8:16; 10:13-15; Titus 2:11; 3:5-7)
We believe the Scriptures teach a life of holiness. Sanctification is a separation from that which is evil and a dedication unto God. We believe all believers should earnestly pursue sanctification by walking in obedience to God's Word. We further believe that the Christian is able to live a godly life by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
(Hebrews 12:14; I Peter 1:15-16; Philippians 2:12-13)
While we do believe that the gifts of the Spirit are in operation today, we believe that the main evidence of a fuller in-filling of the Holy Spirit is the manifestation of the fruit of the Spirit in a believer's life.
We believe that Christ's death on the cross provides healing for the human body, in answer to believing prayer, if and when it is in the sovereign will of God for that person.
(Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16,17; James 5:14-16)
We believe in the second coming of Christ with His saints to rule and reign on the earth for a thousand years.
(Zechariah 14:5; Matthew 24:27, 30; Revelation 19:20; 20:11-15; 21:8)
