Statement of Faith

 

 

We believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, that the Bible, Old and New Testaments, is the inspired, infallible Word of God.

 

We believe that God the Father is the personal, transcendent (above and independent of the material universe), and sovereign Creator of all things.

 

We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human, He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, provided for the atonement of our sins by His vicarious (substitutionary) death on the Cross, and was bodily resurrected by the power of the Holy Spirit, ascended back to the right hand of God the Father, and ever lives to make intercession for us.

 

We believe that after Jesus ascended to Heaven He poured out His Holy Spirit on the believers in Jerusalem, enabling them to fulfill His command to preach the Gospel to the entire world. We believe the Holy Spirit is available to all believers today enabling them to also preach the Gospel to the entire world.

 

We believe that all people are by nature separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation, redemption, and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin and accepts Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord, trusting Him for salvation, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit. All his/her sins are forgiven, and that person becomes a child of God, destined to spend eternity with the Lord.
