Statement of Faith
- We believe that there is one God, who is infinitely perfect and eternally existent in three equal persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
- We believe the Bible to be the inerrant, inspired and only authoritative, written Word of God.
- We believe God is the creator of heaven and earth, and upholds and directs all things according to His will and by His power.
- We believe in the full deity and full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His pre-existence, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory to establish His kingdom of righteousness and peace.
- We believe in the Holy Spirit, sent to indwell, guide, teach and empower the believer; and to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment.
- We believe that every believer should walk in obedience to God’s will as revealed in the Bible; through faith in prayer and in God’s promises, and above all, through love toward God and toward others.
- We believe that the church is the body of born-again believers in fellowship with Christ and with fellow believers.
- We believe in the resurrection of all people, the saints to everlasting joy and bliss, and the lost to judgment and eternal separation from God.
- We believe that it is God’s intent that each believer should maintain regular attendance at a Bible-believing, Christ-confessing Church.
