STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.

 

We believe that there is 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 atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, in His bodily resurrection from the dead, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

 

We believe that man was originally created in the image and likeness of God: he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of Jesus.

 

We believe that salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God.

 

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

 

We believe the Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, which is the Church, and has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations.

 

We believe that the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal and visible. This is the believer’s blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service.
