Statement of Belief

The Godhead.

There is one God, the eternally existing Father, Son, and Holy Spirit coeternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections.

 

Christ and His Work.
a. The Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men.
b. The Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through his death on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and, our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead.
c. The Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, He  fulfils the ministry of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate.

 

The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit has been sent to convict people of their sins and to lead them to Christ for salvation. He brings spiritual life to those who believe, and gives them a true understanding of the scriptures. He lives in all believers, assuring them of salvation and works in them to make them more like Christ.
The Holy Scriptures.
The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible, and God-breathed, and, therefore, are the final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testament are the complete and divine revelation of God to man.
The Human Race
Man was created in the image and likeness of God, but in Adam’s sin the human race fell, man inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and, man is totally depraved, and, of himself, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition.
Salvation
The Bible teaches that there is only one way of salvation through recognition and repentance of our sin and that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins.

 

Missions
God has given all Believers a great commission to proclaim the Gospel to all nations so that there might be a great multitude from every nation, tribe, ethnic group, and language group who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. As ambassadors of Christ we must use all available means to go to the foreign nations and not wait for them to come to us.

 

The Future
As he promised, the Lord Jesus Christ will return in glory. He will raise all the dead and judge the world in perfect justice. Those who have not received salvation will go to eternal punishment. Those who have been made right with God will be welcomed into a life of eternal joy with God. God will make all things new and will be glorified forever.
