Statement of Faith
We Believe the BIBLE is the infallible and inerrant Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
We Believe there is one God who exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
1 John 5:7; John 10:30
We Believe man is created in the image of God and was given dominion over all the earth.
We Believe because of one man, sin entered into the world. Sin separates man from God. All of mankind is guilty of sin.
Isaiah 59:2; Romans 5:12; Romans 3:23
We Believe salvation is a free gift from God. God sent His Son, Jesus, to be born of a virgin. He was the only sinless man to ever walk the face of the earth. Jesus gave His life, dying on the cross for our sins. By first admitting to God that we are a sinner in need of a Savior, then by confessing with our mouth and believing with our heart in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, we are "born again".
John 3:3-21; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 10:10; John 14:6
We Believe water baptism is a commandment to be followed after conversion. Water baptism is an outward sign of a NEW LIFE IN CHRIST. Jesus is our example of water baptism by immersion.
Romans 6:4; Matthew 3:13-17; Mark 16:16
We Believe the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God.
Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4
We Believe God gives spiritual gifts to born again believers who ask. Spiritual gifts enable God's power to flow through the life of the believer for the edification of the body of Christ and for a sign to the unbeliever.
1 Peter 4:10; 1 Corinthians 12, 13, 14
We Believe sanctification is an on-going process of renewing our minds by the Word of God so that we can develop godly character, living by the Spirit and not by the flesh.
Romans 12:1-2; Galatians 5:22-25
We Believe hell is a real place of permanent separation from God. God does not wish for anyone to go to hell. He has given mankind a choice of life or death.
Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:14-15; John 3:16-18; Deuteronomy 30:19
We Believe the rapture of the church and the return of Jesus are certain although no one knows the exact day or time.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Hebrews 9:28
We Believe those who have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior will live with Him for all eternity.
John 10:28; Romans 6:23
