Statement of Faith

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons:

Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Genesis 1:1, 26, 27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19;

1 Peter1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Deut. 6:4; John 14:10, 26.

Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity and humanity of 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, in His present rule as Head of the Church and in His personal return in

power and glory. Isa. 7:14; 9:6; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-2, 14; 2 Cor. 5:19-21; Gal. 4:4-5;

Phil. 2:5-8 Acts 2:18-36; Rom. 3:24- 25; 1 Pet. 2:24; Eph. 1:7; 1 Peter 1:3-5 Acts 1:9-

10; Heb. 9:24; 7:25; Rom. 8:34; 1 John 2:1- 2.

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by

whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We believe the Holy

Spirit assists Christians in understanding spiritual truth and gives every believer a

spiritual gift when they are saved. Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16, 17; Acts 1:8;

1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25.

The Bible

The Bible is the inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of God and is

the final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and New

Testament are the complete and divine revelation of God to man. 2 Timothy 3:16; 2

Peter 1:20,21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105, 160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5.


We believe that God created the universe in six literal, 24-hour

periods. Genesis. 1-2; Exodus 20:11.

Human Beings

We believe that God created human beings in the image and

likeness of God. By Adam’s sin, human beings fell from their sinless state, inherited

a sinful nature and became alienated from God. Human beings are, of themselves,

utterly unable to remedy their lost condition. Genesis 1:27; Isaiah 53:6a; Isaiah 59:1,

2; Rom. 3:22-23; 5:12; 6:23; Eph. 2:1-3; 4:17-19.


We believe that salvation is God’s free gift. We believe that we are

saved by grace through faith in the finished work of redemption achieved by Christ

through His death, burial and resurrection. Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8, 9; John 14:6

1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1.


We believe that human beings were created to exist forever. We will

either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through

forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be

eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal

existence. John 3:16; John 14:17; Romans 6:23; Romans 8: 17-18; Revelation 20:15; 1

Cor. 2:7-9.

Eternal Security

We believe that all those who die in God’s grace through

faith are assured eternal salvation. Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus

Christ and because salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, we

cannot “lose” our salvation. John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25, 10:10, 14; 1

Peter 1:3-5.

Human Relationships & Identity

We believe that marriage is the exclusive, covenant relationship between one man and one woman and that God

intends sexual intimacy to only occur between a man and a woman joined in

marriage. We believe that marriage is symbolic of the mysterious union between

Christ and the church. We also believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates

each person as male or female and that these two distinct, complementary genders

together reflect the image and nature of God. Gen.1:26-27; Gen 2:24; Gen. 19:5, 13

Gen. 26:8-9; Lev. 18:1-30; Rom. 1: 26-29; I Cor. 5:1; 6:9; Ephesians 5:23-32; 1 Thess.

4:1-8; Heb. 13:4.

Dignity and Love

We believe that God endows all human life with inherent

dignity at every stage of development and that human life should be respected from

conception to natural death. Further, because we are created in the image of God, we

believe that every person must be afforded compassion, kindness and respect. We

also believe that the greatest commandments are (1) to love God and (2) to love our

neighbors as ourselves. Therefore, we believe that we should demonstrate love

toward all people. Job 3:16: Ps. 51:5; Ps. 139:14-16; Matthew 22:36-40; Mark 12:28-

31; Luke 1:44; Luke 6:31.

The Second Coming of Christ

We believe in that blessed hope, the

personal, imminent return of Christ Who will rapture His church prior to the sevenyear

tribulation period. At the end of the Tribulation, Christ will personally and

visibly return with His saints, to establish His earthly Messianic Kingdom which was

promised to the nation of Israel. Ps. 89:3-4; Dan. 2:31-45; Zech. 14:4-11; 1Thess.

1:10, 4:13-18; Titus 2:13; Rev. 3:10; 19:11-16, 20:1-6.
