Statement of Faith

We believe:

  1. In one God and three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit;

  2. In God, the Father:

    • who loves the world,

    • who is concerned and involved with humanity,

    • who is working all things after the counsel of His will.

  3. In God, the Son:

    • who is the only begotten Son of God,

    • who is the way, the truth and the life–the only Savior of the world,

    • who died for the sins of humanity,

    • who resurrected from the dead,

    • who will judge the living and the dead,

    • who will return to the earth.

  4. In God, the Holy Spirit:

    • who indwells believers, evidenced by the fruit of the spirit,

    • who baptizes the believer, evidenced by power,

    • who gives spiritual gifts to believers,

    • who works in the hearts of believers, leading and causing them to please God.

  5. That humanity is under the reign of sin and death, and therefore, needs a Savior;

  6. That salvation is a free gift of God, given to those who believe in Jesus Christ;

  7. That the righteous and the unrighteous will be resurrected from the dead to be judged:

    • those who believe will be rewarded with eternal happiness in the presence of God,

    • those who reject Jesus will be separated from him forever.

  8. That Jesus is building His Church:

    • which is made of all people who believe in Jesus Christ,

    • over which the gates of hades will not prevail,

    • which shall continue maturing until it is brought into fullness.

  9. In the kingdom of God:

    • which was established when Jesus sat down at the right hand of the Father,

    • of which all believers in Jesus are citizens,

    • which may be experienced today,

    • which is growing in the earth, like seeds in soil,

    • which will grow until it fills the earth,

    • which will be brought in full power when Jesus returns to the earth.

  10. That the Old and New Testaments were written by men and inspired by God.
