Statement of Faith
We believe that God is one God existing in three eternal and co-equal persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16 -17; 2 Peter 1:1; Acts 5:3-4).
We believe that Jesus Christ is God come in the flesh, being fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross as payment for the sins of mankind, was buried and bodily rose from the dead on the third day. He is now seated at the right hand of the Father, caring for His people and leading the church (John 1:1-34; Matthew 1:18-25; 1 Peter 2:21-25).
We believe all people are sinners in need of the Savior. Everyone fails in one way or another to live up to God's perfect standard of righteousness (Romans 3:23 ).
We believe that salvation and forgiveness of our sin is attained only through faith in Jesus' death on the cross as payment for our sin. That forgiveness is God's free gift of grace to anyone who will receive it. All those who place their faith in Christ alone can have assurance that their salvation is eternally secure because of God's power and faithfulness (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 10:28-29; 1 John 5:11-13).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead and indwells all believers as our instructor, guide, and seal guaranteeing our redemption (John 14:26 ; Galatians 5:18 ).
We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are given by inspiration of God, and are the infallible and inerrant rule of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16 -17).
We believe that the Church of Jesus Christ is made up of all believers in Christ, irrespective of color, race or denomination (1 Corinthians 12:13 ).
We believe that Jesus Christ is coming again at any moment and will return first for His church, after which this earth and the people on it will suffer seven years of great tribulation (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Matthew 24:21). After the tribulation Jesus Christ will return to earth with His church and rule and reign for 1000 years (Revelation 20:1-6). After all these things will come God's final sorting and judgment of all mankind. Those who have believed in Jesus Christ will have an eternal heavenly home with the Father. Those who have not believed in Jesus Christ will be eternally separated from God in hell. (1 John 5:11-12; Revelation 20:11-15).
