Statement Of Faith
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed and has been revealed to us as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Genesis 1:1,26,27, 3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19, 1 Peter 1:2, 2 Corinthians 13:14
About Jesus Christ
Our Lord Jesus Christ is God come in the flesh. Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory as our mediator with the Father and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make people aware of their sin and their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.
2 Corinthians 3:17, John 16:7-13, 14:16,17, Acts 1:8, 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16, Ephesians 1:13, Galatians 5:25, Ephesians 5:18, 1 Corinthians 12:1-11
About the Bible
The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without error.
2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20,21, 2 Timothy 1:13, Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6, Proverbs 30:5
About Human Beings
People are made in the image of God. They are the supreme object of God’s creation. God’s desire is that we become like Him in character.
Yet, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin. This attitude separates us from God.
Genesis 1:27, Psalm 8:36, Isaiah 53:6a, Romans 3:23, Isaiah 59:1, 2, Ephesians 4:22-24
Salvation is possible only because of the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s, which is death. When we repent, we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment a person receives Jesus Christ into their life by faith.
Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8,9, John 14:6, 1:12, Titus 3:5, Romans 10:9-13
Believers are commanded to be baptized into the body of Christ as a public acknowledgement of their faith in Jesus Christ, and to gather together regularly to share in the Lord’s Supper.
Ephesians 4:3, Hebrews 10:25, Matthew 28:19-20, Colossians 2:12, Acts 2:41, Romans 6:4, 1 Corinthians 11:23-28, Mark 14:22-26
About Eternal Security
God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ and true believers are secure in their salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian.
John 10:29, 2 Timothy 1:12, Hebrews 7:25, 10:10,14, 1 Peter 1:3-5
We will either exist eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation or be separated from God because of our sin. To be separated from God is death. To be eternally in union with Him is everlasting life.
John 3:16, John 14:17, Romans 6:23, Romans 8:17-18, Revelation 20:15, 1 Corinthians 2:7-9
