Statement of Faith

We believe:
We believe in One God in three persons — Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe it is obedience to our Lord’s command to lead people of all nations to faith in Christ and to grow in Christ-likeness.

We believe in Christ’s personal return to establish His Kingdom on earth.

We believe The Holy Spirit indwells and empowers believers and is given as a seal and a pledge of our inheritance in Christ Jesus.

We believe that Jesus Christ is “the way, the truth, and the life.” – (John 14:6) and it is by grace, through Jesus Christ alone we have salvation. “…for there is no other name under heaven given to man by which we must be saved.” – (Acts 4:12)

We believe that as humans we are sinful by nature but as believers God is transforming us from the inside out according to his purpose.-“if we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.” – (1 John 1:8) and “if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” – (1 John 1:9) God is forgiving but we are to strive to “live holy and Godly lives as we look forward to the day of God.” – (2 Peter 3:11,12)

We believe that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” and can fully redeem and powerfully use even those who consider they have been “the worst.” – (1 Timothy 1:15)

We believe in Jesus Christ’s deity, virgin birth, sinless humanity, substitutionary death, atoning blood, bodily resurrection and ascension to heaven. The entire Bible is God’s infallible revelation to man.

We believe in eternal glory for believers in heaven and everlasting punishment for unbelievers in hell.

We believe that the one true church, the body of Christ, is consisting of all believers and that none is greater than the other but all have a purpose.

We believe God “is patient, not wanting any to perish but everyone to come to repentance.” – (2 Peter 3:9)

We believe that all scripture is “God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” – (2 Timothy 3:16)

We believe that every believer in Christ is the “temple of the Holy Spirit.” – (1 Corinthians 6:19)

We believe we have been “baptized by one Spirit into one body” (1Corinthians 12:13) and recognize the value and equality of all members of the body of Christ.
We are “all one in Christ Jesus.” – (Galatians 3:28)

We believe we have been given different kinds of gifts that are useful in building up the body of Christ (the church). – (1 Corinthians 12:4)

We believe that “our citizenship is in heaven and we eagerly await a Savior from there the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so they will be like His glorious body.” – (Philippians 3:21)
