Statement of Faith

 

 

I believe there is one true and holy God who is eternal and who exists, supernaturally, as three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

I believe the Bible to be the sole inspired, infallible, authoritative and sufficient Word of God, all truth, breathed out by the Holy Spirit.

 

I believe the Bible contains literal truths, including God’s creation of the heavens, earth, and all living creatures – including man.

 

I believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His substitutionary atoning death through crucifixion and His shed blood; in His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His visible, personal return in power and glory to earth in the future.

 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity, who came to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment and to regenerate, sanctify, seal, and empower for ministry, service and witness all who believe in Christ. I believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ, and that He is our abiding Helper, Teacher and Guide.

 

I believe that all people are sinners by nature and choice, and therefore are under condemnation and that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit and forgives those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. I believe that every person outside of Christ’s redemption who reaches the age of accountability is guilty and corrupt before a Holy God.

 

I believe God calls us all to be members of his Kingdom, and we have the free will to accept or reject his call.
