Statement of Faith

This we believe:

The Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct; (2Tim. 3:16, 17)

We believe God eternally exists in three equal persons: The Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit; (2 Cor. 13: 14, Matt. 28: 19, 2 Cor. 1: 21, 22, Eph. 4: 4-6)

The deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Virgin birth of Christ, his sinless life, vicarious death, His substitutionary atonement for sin, His bodily resurrection and His personal, visible return to earth to reign in righteousness, glory, and to establish His kingdom;

The Person of the Holy Spirit and His work of conviction, regeneration and sanctification, who indwells every believer equipping them with gifts for service and witness; (Proverbs 2:6, I Cor. 6: 19, Rom. 8: 11, Gal. 4: 6)

The necessity of new birth, in salvation by faith in Jesus Christ alone and the importance of a life fully committed to the will of God in Christ; (John 14: 6)

The church as the one universal body of Christ who is the Head, called to be God’s redeemed people, and that the church is the dwelling place of God through the Spirit, and that its members should gather together unto Christ and in His name alone, for the purpose of worship, prayer, ministry and evangelism. (Ephesians 4: 4-11)

The historic Christian faith as revealed in the Scriptures and practiced by the apostles.

Salvation is received by faith in Jesus Christ who reconciles us to God.

The Bible is the inspired word of God and is central to understanding God's will.

A person must voluntarily choose to be a follower of Jesus Christ by surrendering to and accepting His Lordship; by becoming a part of a community of believers for worship, prayer, teaching, fellowship, and mutual accountability; and by seeking to grow into His likeness, reaching out to others and living out the Kingdom of God.

As disciples of Jesus Christ, we seek to live the life of love that He taught us, working for peace and reconciliation with God, with one another, and with the world.
