Statement of Faith
One true God
We believe the one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent “I AM”, the creator of Heaven and Earth.
Genesis 1:1; Exodus 3:14; Isaiah 43:10 – 11
The Lord Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is the “Image of the invisible God” and that in Him “all deity dwells in bodily form.” We believe in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His death on the cross as the substitutionary atonement for sin, His literal bodily resurrection from the dead, His present ministry of intercession in Heaven, and His personal future return to the earth.
Colossians 1:15-22; I Thessalonians 4:16; 1 Peter 3:18
The Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit convicts men of sin and regenerates, indwells, seals, sets apart, and empowers believers for service and a holy life. We believe that “God is at work within us both to will and work to His good pleasure” and that “He will continue to perfect us until the day of Christ Jesus.”
John 14:16; Romans 8:14, 16; Ephesians 1:13; Philippians 1:6; Philippians 2:13
We believe in the unity and trinity of the Godhead existing in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three persons are One God, having the same nature, attributes, and perfection.
Genesis 1:26; John 1:14, 15:26, 17:21; Ephesians 4:4-6
We believe in salvation by grace, a free gift from God apart from works. Salvation comes through repentance, a turning from one’s own way to God’s way, and accepting Jesus Christ in personal faith.
Ephesians 2:8-10; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; John 1:12
The grey areas
“Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
