Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible (both Old and New Testaments) is the divinely inspired Word of God, without error as originally written, comprehensive in its revelation of God's will for our salvation. The Bible is authoritative for Christian living, and powerful to transform and conform individuals into the likeness of Jesus Christ.
We believe the God of the Bible is the one and only God, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe God the Son was and is Jesus Christ. He is true God and true man, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a perfectly sinless life, died on the cross as a representative, substitutionary sacrifice for sin, arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of God the Father, and will come again to earth to judge the living and the dead.
We believe that salvation from sin and death is available as a free gift (by God's grace), but must be personally received through repentance from sin, and faith in Jesus Christ's life, death and resurrection. The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only grounds for justification and salvation.
We believe that God the Holy Spirit regenerates people in new spiritual birth as they trust Jesus as Savior and Lord, and by His abiding presence and power, equips them for godly living and service.
We believe in the existence of heaven as the eternal destiny of believers, and hell as the eternal destiny of unbelievers.
