Statement of Faith

 

As an organization in the evangelical Christian tradition, we believe in the following statement of faith:

 

WE BELIEVE in one sovereign God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit; and we believe that God created the Heavens and the earth out of nothing by his spoken word for his own glory.

 

WE BELIEVE that God has revealed Himself and His truth in the Bible, in Jesus Christ, and in his creation; We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God, inerrant in the original text, and are the infallible rule of faith and practice for Christians.

 

WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and was true God and true man, existing in one person and without sin. We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ and His ascension into heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father interceding for believers.

 

WE BELIEVE our first parents, Adam and Eve, sinned by rebelling against God, thereby incurring both physical and spiritual death. As a result, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are condemned to eternal punishment and separation from God.

 

WE BELIEVE that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins and that all who believe in Him are justified by His shed blood and are forgiven all their sins. All who receive Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and become children of God.

 

WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit indwells and gives life to believers, thereby enabling them to understand the Scriptures and to live godly lives. The Holy Spirit equips the believer for worship, service and witness.

 

WE BELIEVE that the Church is the universal body of Christ composed of local communities of Christ’s followers. The task of the Church is to worship God, to share His love with one another in Christian community, and to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth by word and deed.

 

WE BELIEVE in the blessed hope that Jesus Christ soon return in power and glory to gather His own to Himself. After He has judged the nations and has accomplished His purposes for His Church, He will establish His eternal kingdom on earth forever.

 

WE BELIEVE that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ
