Statement Of Faith

Statement Of Faith

* We believe the Holy Bible to be inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of    God (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21).

* We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons— Father, Son, and Holy    Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30).

* We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33),
   His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35),
   His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26),
   His miracles (John 2:11),
   His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9),
   His resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4),
   His ascension to the right hand of God (Mark 16:19),
   His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).

* We believe that for salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is    absolutely essential. Men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of    Christ (John 3:16-19, 5:24; Romans 3:23, 5:8-9; Eph 2:8-10; Titus 3:5).

* 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 condemnation (John    5:28-29).

* We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9;          1 Corinthians 2:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28; Ephesians 2:19-22, 4:1-6).

* We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is    enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30,    5:18)
