Statement of Faith
WE BELIEVE the entire Bible to be the divinely inbreathed, infallible, inerrant and authoritative Word of God.
WE BELIEVE in one God who exists in three distinct persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).
WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity. We believe in His virgin birth, His unqualified deity, His sinless humanity, His perfect life, His atoning death and resurrection, His ascension to the Father's right hand and His personal coming again.
WE BELIEVE that man was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him, but became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by their own effort.
WE BELIEVE that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, salvation only occurs when a person places his/her faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the all sufficient payment for his/her sin.
WE BELIEVE that every believer should live for Christ and not for themselves. We believe in the present day reality of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4, with the initial physical evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and the Lord's supernatural healing of the human body.
WE BELIEVE that the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus Christ is the head.
WE BELIEVE in the observance of the ordinances of Christian baptism by immersion for believers and the Lord's Supper.
WE BELIEVE in the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and of the unbeliever to judgement and everlasting conscious punishment.
