Statement of Faith

We believe God is a Person who has revealed Himself as a Trinity in unity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- three Persons but one God (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 8:6).

We believe the Bible, (both the Old and New Testaments) is a divine revelation, verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).

We believe Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God - He is Himself very God; He took upon Him the nature of humanity, was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary; He died upon the cross as a substitute sacrifice for the sin of the world; He arose from the dead in the body in which He was crucified; He ascended into heaven in that body glorified, where He is now our interceding High Priest; He will come again personally and visibly to set up His kingdom and to judge the quick and the dead (Colossians 1:15; Philippians 2:5-8; Matthew 1:18-25; 1 Peter 2:24-25 ; Luke 24; Hebrews 4:14-16; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; Matthew 25:31-46 ; Revelation 11:15-17; 20:4-6, 11-15).

We believe Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin, and is lost; this is true of all men, and except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God; salvation is by grace through faith in Christ who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree; the retribution of the wicked and unbelieving and the reward of the righteous are everlasting, and as the reward is conscious, so is the retribution (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:10, 23; John 3:3; Acts 13:38-39; John 3:16; Matthew 25:46; 2 Corinthians 5:1; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10).

We believe the Church is an elect company of believers baptized by the Holy Spirit into one body; it’s mission is to bear witness to the glory of Jesus Christ, preaching the gospel among all nations; it will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air before He appears to set up His kingdom ( Acts 2:41; 15:13-17; Ephesians 1:3-6; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:6-8; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18).
