Statement Of Faith

THE BIBLE

We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired Word. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:14-17).

GOD

We believe in God. He is the Creator. He is our Father. He is all-powerful, all-knowing, and ever-present. God is love, and He is faithful to all His promises (Genesis 1:1; John 3:16).

JESUS

We believe in Jesus. He is the Son of Man and the Son of God. He died on the cross for our sins and He rose again on the third day. He will come again. He is our Lord and Savior. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever (John 1:14; Hebrews 13:8).

HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the Holy Spirit. He fills and empowers Believers to do the work of Christ. We believe the fruit of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit are still present in the Church today (John 14:12; Acts 1:8; Galatians 5:22-23; I Corinthians 12-14).

MAN

We believe man was created in the image of God. Man’s purpose was to have fellowship with God and to have dominion over His creation. Adam’s sin brought death to all mankind, but life and renewed purpose is available through Christ (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 5:12-21).

SALVATION

We believe salvation is by grace through faith in Christ. Those who believe with their heart and confess with their mouth that Jesus is Lord will be saved. We believe Scripture instructs every person to repent and be baptized into Christ (Ephesian 2:8-10; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 2:38).

THE CHURCH

We believe the Church is the Body of Christ. The Church is a Spirit-birthed, Spirit-filled, and Spirit-empowered people. Our passion is the Great Commandment and our mission is the Great Commission (Acts 2; Matthew 22:37-40; Matthew 28:18-20).
