Statement of Faith

A.   We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is inerrant and infallible in the original writings.
            (II Timothy 3: 16;   II Peter 1: 21)

B.   We believe in the Trinity – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1-2;   John 1: 1, 10:30, 37-38)

C.   We believe that the Godhead created the heavens and the earth and everything in them.  (Genesis 1: 1–31)

D.   We believe by the miracle of the virgin birth that the Lord Jesus Christ, eternal Son of God, became man
      without ceasing to be God, in order to reveal God and to redeem man, that He died for our sins and rose
            bodily from the dead for our justification.  We believe He now is exalted at the right hand of God, that He is
            the Head of the Church, the Lord of the individual believer, that He is ministering as our Great High Priest
            and Advocate.  We are awaiting His bodily return.  (Isaiah 7: 14;   Matthew 1: 18 –23;   Luke 1: 35;
            John 1: 14, 18;   Hebrews 4: 14 –15, 7: 25 –27; Romans 4: 25;  Acts 1: 11;  Ephesians 1: 20 –23)

E.   We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and that He reproves the
            world of sin, regenerates the believing sinner, and baptizes him into the Body of Christ.  (John 16: 7-8, 13-15;
            Titus 3: 5-6;   I Corinthians 12: 12-13)

F.  We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that he sinned, incurring not only physical death,
            but also spiritual death, which is separation from God.  (Genesis 1: 27, 2: 16-17;   Romans 5: 12-14)

G.  We believe that salvation is the free gift of God to be received only by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and by
            which we are restored to eternal life.  (John 3: 16, 5: 24, 11: 25;   Romans 5: 15-21;   Ephesians 2: 8-10)

H.   We believe that the true Church is composed of all who have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and
            thereby constitutes a spiritual unity of believers, the Body of Christ.  (Romans 8: 9-11; 
            I Corinthians 12: 12-13;   Galatians 3: 26-28)

I.    We believe that God ordained marriage to be a lifetime commitment between one man and one woman and
      that marriage provides the divine context for having children and multiplying a godly legacy.  Marriage is a
      living picture of the intimate relationship between Jesus Christ and His followers. (Genesis 2:18;
      Genesis 1:28a; Ephesians 5:22-23)

J.          We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, and in the final judgment.  (John 5: 28-29)
