Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant, and only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal bodily return in power and glory.
  • We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. Salvation by the grace of God alone, on the basis of Christ's atonement on the Cross alone, received by faith alone.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Who’s indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; of the redeemed to eternal life, and of them that are lost to eternal damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
