Statement of Faith

Our core beliefs are centered in Christ and His message,

 as supported by the passages of Holy Scripture.

We believe that GOD is an all-wise, all-powerful, holy, loving, infinite, and personal being, who exists eternally as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

We believe that GOD is the creator of the universe, the sustainer of all life, and the giver of eternal life to all who love Him.

 

We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son, suffered in our place on the cross, that He died and rose again, and now sits at the Father's right hand until He returns to judge every person at the last day.

 

We believe that GOD enables us through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to live a holy & victorious life, keeping us in His love, guiding us into all truth, and empowering us for effective service and witnessing for Christ.

 

We believe that by the Grace of GOD every person has the ability and responsibility to choose between right and wrong, and that those who repent of their sin and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are justified by faith.

We Believe that our faith is exemplified through good works, and is evidence to others that we are GOD’s children.

We believe the church is Christ’s body, through which He offers His love and eternal life to the world as members worship, witness and work for Him.

We believe that men and women are created in GOD’s likeness for fellowship with Him.  We owe to GOD our absolute obedience in all relationships within our homes, society, and world, as well as in our individual actions. 

We believe the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is GOD’s Word and serves as the source and final authority for Christian faith and practices.  The words in the Bible unerringly communicate what GOD intended.  It contains everything we need for knowing and pleasing GOD.

 

We believe that GOD counts the believer as righteous: as He makes each righteous, freeing sin's dominion at conversion, purifying hearts by faith, perfecting us in love and providing for growth in Grace at every stage of our spiritual life.
