Statement of Faith
We believe the Holy Bible is the only inspired, infallible, authoritative word of God; that both the Old and New Testaments are without error as originally written and are the supreme and final authority for faith and life. We believe that the Godhead exists in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three Persons are one God having precisely the same nature, attributes, and perfections. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died on a cross to pay for our sins, rose bodily from the dead on the third day, and ascended into the presence of God the Father. He now intercedes for us and will return in power and glory. We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts men of sin, regenerates, baptizes, indwells, seals, and sets apart believers unto a holy life; that He keeps and empowers believers day by day; that He is the Teacher of the Word of God and the Guide for daily living. We believe that man was created in God's image, sinned, and incurred both physical and spiritual death; is lost in his natural state; cannot earn merit or acceptance from God and that all men need redemption. We believe that salvation is by grace and is completely the free gift of God apart from works. Salvation involves repentance, a change of mind in respect to God, and thus turning from one’s own way to God’s way. Salvation is through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, results in forgiveness of sins and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and brings new life as a new creature. We believe in the personal, visible, bodily return of Jesus Christ to earth and in the bodily resurrection of the just to the eternal abode in the glory of God’s presence..
