Statement of Faith

Our Beliefs

Our statement of faith is central to our identity, serving as a unifying and clarifying document to guide our mission

WE BELIEVE the Bible is God’s written revelation to mankind, divinely given through human authors who were inspired by the Holy Spirit. It is completely authoritative, and entirely true.1

WE BELIEVE that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus is God, in equal standing with the Father and the Holy Spirit.2

WE BELIEVE in the deity of Jesus Christ who existed as God before anything was created,3 His virgin birth,4 sinless life,5 miracles,6 death on the cross to provide for our redemption,7 bodily resurrection8 and ascension into heaven,9 present rule as the Head of the Church,10 ministry of intercession for us11 and His personal return to earth in power and glory.12 He is the world’s only Savior and is the Lord of all.13

WE BELIEVE that man was created in the image of God,14 but that through sin, he brought upon himself and his posterity not only physical death15 but also spiritual death which is separation from God,16 and because of this all people everywhere are born lost and face the judgment of God.18

WE BELIEVE that the salvation of lost and sinful man is a free gift of God’s grace apart from works,19 is effected by the Holy Spirit who brings about regeneration and the repentance of sin,20 and is received through faith by trusting in Christ’s finished work on the cross.21 The veracity of this faith will be evidenced in the conduct of each believer.22

WE BELIEVE in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit,23 in His present ministry,24 that He performs the miracle of new birth in an unbeliever,25 and that He indwells believers,26 enabling them to live a godly life.27

WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life28 and they that are unsaved unto the resurrection of eternal punishment.29

WE BELIEVE that marriage is a life-long sacred covenant before God and man between one man and one woman instituted by God from the beginning of Creation.30
