Statement of Faith

We Believe:

« The Bible is the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. It is the final authority in faith and conduct.

« There is one personal and holy God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

« In the deity of Jesus Christ; in His virgin birth; in His bodily resurrection; in His substitutionary death for our sin; and in His personal return in power and glory.

« Man was created by God in His image but sinned, and so brought physical and spiritual death to all mankind.

« That salvation is by grace through faith, and that it is the work of the Holy Spirit.

« In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit who indwells the believer, both securing redemption and enabling godly living.

« In the bodily resurrection of the dead; the saved to eternal glory in heaven and the unsaved to eternal damnation.

« Christ is the Head of the Church and all believers should be an active part of a local church serving and glorifying God. Observing the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are vital elements to the local assembly, but are without any saving merit.

« Satan is a personal being, a deceiver and adversary of Christ and His Church. His destiny is eternal punishment.
