Statement of Faith
I believe the Holy Bible is the divinely inspired word of God. The Bible is God’s complete revelation of Himself and, as such, reveals the principles by which people can know the truth and live in a way that pleases God.
I believe in only one living and true God. He is infinite in holiness and perfect in all His ways. To God we owe all of our love, worship, and obedience. God exists and reveals Himself as three-in-One: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
I believe man was created in the image of God, but, by his own free choice, man sinned against God. Only the grace of God can bring man into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose of God.
I believe salvation is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. By His own blood, Jesus Christ obtained eternal redemption for the believer. The grace that saves the believer also holds the believer secure forever as the child of God.
I believe God’s kingdom work is being done in this world in myriad ways, but, in particular, God is at work in His church believers who covenant in the faith of the gospel and who are indwelt and empowered by His Holy Spirit.
I believe, according to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth. Christ will judge all people, living and dead, according to their righteousness. Those who have rejected God’s gift of salvation will experience eternity in Hell, forever separated from a loving Heavenly Father. Those who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior will receive their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord.
