Our Statement of Faith
(1.) The sole basis of our beliefs is in the Holy Bible, God’s infallible and irrefutable written Word, all sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments. We believe that it was uniquely, verbally and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit and that it was written without any error in the original manuscripts. The Holy Bible is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks.
(2.) There is one true God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality.
(3.) Jesus Christ is God, the living Word, who became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and his virgin birth. Hence, He is perfect Deity and true humanity united in one person forever.
(4.) Jesus lived a sinless life and voluntarily atoned for the sins of men by dying on the cross as their substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation for all who trust in Him alone.
(5.) Jesus rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which he lived and died.
(6.) Jesus ascended bodily into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father, where He, the only mediator between God and man, continually makes intercession for His own.
(7.) Man was originally created in the image of God. He sinned by disobeying God; thus, he was alienated from his Creator. That historic fall brought all mankind under divine condemnation.
(8.) The salvation of man is wholly a work of God’s free grace and is not the work, in whole or in part, of human works or goodness, or religious ceremony. God imputes His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation and thereby justified them in His sight.
(9.) Jesus Christ will come again to the earth – personally, visibly, and bodily – to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
(10.) Jesus Christ commanded all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to disciple men of every nation.
