Statement of Faith
We Believe In:
The one true God who lives eternally in three persons—the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit – the Creator of the heavens and the earth.
The divine inspiration and authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God—fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.
The dignity of all people, lovingly made in God’s image as male and female, but then corrupted by sin.
The incarnation of God’s eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ—born of the virgin Mary; truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.
The atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.
The bodily resurrection of Christ the only Savior of the world, his physical ascension to the heaven and mediation for mankind to the Father.
The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.
The ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, fills us with the love of the Father empowering us and enabling our witness.
The Church, the body of Christ that, given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit’s gifts and ministries, works as the priesthood of all believers to proclaim the gospel of God’s love and justification.
The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ, who will raise all people from the dead to judgement; eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost.
The eternal inclusion of the church in the Father and The Son and the ever expanding Kingdom of God.
