Statement of Faith

1. God exists eternally in three persons as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are one God, and there is no other God. God is the absolute and sole Creator of the universe, and creation was by divine fate, not through evolutionary process.
Gen 1:1, John 10:30, 37-38
2. The Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired and preserved by God. It is equal in all parts, without error in its origin, and divinely authoritative for faith and practice for every age and every life.
II Tim. 3:16, II Peter 1:21
3. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and was both God and man while on the earth in the flesh. He was born of a virgin, lived a perfect sinless life, was crucified and died as penalty for our sins, was raised bodily from the dead on the third day, appeared to His disciples and as many as five hun-dred at one time, and ascended to the Father’s right hand. He is the Head of the Church, the Lord of the individual believer. He is ministering as our Great Advocate, and is personally, bodily, and visibly coming again to earth.
Heb. 4:15, 7:25, 9:12, I Peter 2:22, Isa. 7:14, Matt. 1:23, Luke 1:35, I Cor. 15:5-8, John 11:25, Acts 1:11, Rev. 19:11-16
4. The Holy Spirit is a person, is God, and possesses all the divine attributes. He indwells all believers at the moment of salvation, and fills them in response to confession of sin and full yieldedness to Him. The Holy Spirit continues to minister in the life of the believer by indwelling the Christian and enabling them to live a Godly life which is a holy calling.
Eph. 5:18, I Cor. 3:16, 6:19-20
5. Man is born a sinner and totally depraved, void of any righteousness, without God. The whole human race has fallen into the sin of Adam, bringing personally upon each one physical, spiritual, and the possibility of eternal death.
Rom. 5:12-21
6. Jesus Christ provides the only way to salvation through His substitutionary death and shed blood on the cross. Salvation is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership, or any of man’s efforts, and is of pure grace.
John 3:16-19, Eph. 2:8-9, Rom. 3:20
