Our Statement of Faith

We Believe

• There is one God, eternally existing in three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son, and the        Holy Spirit.

• That the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God.

• That God created human beings, male and female, in his own image. However, Adam and Eve          distorted that image by falling into sin through Satan's temptation.

• That at creation God instituted marriage and that it is between one woman and one man. (Gen.        1:27-28; 2:18-24; Matt. 19:4-6; Mk 10:5-9; Hebrews 13:4).

• In the deity of the 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 God        the Father, and in His future return to the earth in power and glory.

• That Christ, by his obedience and death, fully discharged the debt of all those who are justified. By    his sacrifice, he bore in our stead the punishment due us for our sins, making a proper, real, and        full satisfaction to God’s justice on our behalf.

• That the only means that fallen man can be saved is by being cleansed from our sin through the        precious blood of Christ whose atoning work is received by faith.

• That upon believing in Christ, we are justified, which means the righteousness of Christ is imputed    to us as if it were our own righteousness and God declares us righteous in His sight.

• That regeneration (being made spiritually alive) by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for                personal salvation. (John 3:3-6)

• That the Holy Spirit indwells (lives inside) every true believer in Jesus Christ. (Rom. 8:9)

• That the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit empowers the Christian to live a holy life, pleasing to      God.

• That baptism and the Lord’s Supper are the two sacraments ordained by the Lord Jesus himself.

• In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to              everlasting punishment.
