Statement of Faith


STATEMENT OF FAITH

1.We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infal­li­ble, author­i­ta­tive, inerrant Word of God. (II Tim. 3:15, II Pet. 1:21)

2.We believe there is one God, eter­nal­ly exis­tent in three persons–Father, Son, and Holy Spir­it. (Gen. 1:1, Mt. 28:19, Jn. 10:30)

3.We believe in the deity of Christ (Jn. 10:33); His vir­gin birth (Isa. 7:14, Mt. 1:23, Lk. 1:35); His sin­less life (Heb. 4:15, Heb. 7:26); His mir­a­cles (Jn. 2:11); His vic­ar­i­ous and aton­ing death (I Cor. 15:3, Eph. 1:7, Heb. 2:9); His res­ur­rec­tion (Jn. 11:25, I Cor. 15:4); His ascen­sion to the right hand of the Father (Mk. 16:19); His per­son­al return in pow­er and glo­ry (Acts 1:11, Rev. 19:11).

4.We believe in the absolute neces­si­ty of regen­er­a­tion by the Holy Spir­it for sal­va­tion because of the exceed­ing sin­ful­ness of human nature; and that men are jus­ti­fied on the sin­gle ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith alone we are saved. (Jn. 3:16–19, Jn. 5:24, Rom. 3:23, Rom. 5:8–9, Eph. 2:8–10, Tit. 3:5)

5.We believe in the res­ur­rec­tion of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the res­ur­rec­tion of life, and they that are lost unto the res­ur­rec­tion of damna­tion. (Jn. 5:28–29)

6.We believe in the spir­i­tu­al uni­ty of believ­ers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Rom. 8:9, I Cor. 12:12–13, Gal. 3:26–28)

7.We believe in the present min­istry of the Holy Spir­it by whose indwelling the Chris­tian is enabled to live a god­ly life. (Rom. 8:13–14, I Cor. 3:16, I Cor. 6:19–20, Eph. 4:30, 5:18)
