Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. *
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. *
  • We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. *
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. *
  • Sex is a gift from God to be enjoyed within the marriage covenant; a relationship between one woman and one man. God has commanded abstinence from any form of sexually intimate activity outside of a marriage relationship. God created human beings male and female; therefore, we hold the distinction between the two sexes to be sacred.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. *
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. *
