Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible is divine revelation and fully inspired Word of God, inerrant in original manuscripts, authoritative, infallible, and entirely trustworthy for faith and life.

We believe in the unity of the Godhead eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Who is personal, almighty, all-knowing, and infinitely perfect.

We believe Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, is both truly God and truly man. He performed miracles to manifest His deity, lived a sinless life, and accomplished our redemption by dying on the cross in our place as a voluntary substitutionary sacrifice. He arose from the dead and ascended to the right hand of the Father, where He reigns over the universe and intercedes for believers, and will return to the earth to establish His kingdom, judging in equity and justice all people.

We believe man was created in the image of God, but fell in rebellion by a voluntary decision and, as a result became separated from God, and totally incapable of remedying their lost condition.
We believe salvation is a gift from God, given to all humanity by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed for the forgiveness of our sins.

We believe the Holy Spirit, indwells and seals every believer at the moment of saving faith. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, to convince men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, and indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.

We believe the Church is composed of all who genuinely believe in and accept Jesus Christ as Savior and sovereign Lord. All believers are united together into one body of which He is head. As members of the Church it is our responsibility to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace, supporting the local church and loving one another with pure hearts.
