Our Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible, in its original manuscripts, to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God, containing absolute and universal truth that is relevant and binding over all of humanity, and that the Bible is the ultimate authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that God is merciful and compassionate, yet holy and just.
  • We believe in the deity and humanity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His present rule as Head of the Church and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • We believe that all human beings (with the exception of the God/man Jesus) have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. We are corrupt both outwardly and inwardly, to the degree that, apart from God’s gracious drawing through creation, conscience, calamity and the preaching of the Gospel, none would turn from sin.
  • We believe that sinners cannot earn salvation. Thus salvation is a result of God’s grace, appropriated by faith, more specifically, by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ. However, faith that is void of works is dead and it cannot save. Those who truly believe in the Lord Jesus Christ repent of their sins and strive to follow Him. When they believe in Him, they are spiritually regenerated and become spiritual children of God. We do not believe that salvation is guaranteed to any who only “accept Jesus as their personal Savior” or “invite Jesus into their hearts,” and who then live lives that are indistinguishable from unbelievers.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life and by whose gifts the church is empowered far beyond mere human ability.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and the lost unto the resurrection of eternal death.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, with equality across racial, gender, and class differences. True followers of Christ love each other and demonstrate that love through sacrificial acts.
  • We believe that human life begins at conception, and that to terminate the life of a baby within his or her mother’s womb is an act of murder, which is forbidden by God according to the Bible. The only possible justification for an abortion is the rare case when it is necessary in order to save the life of a mother. We also believe that forgiveness is available for any sin, including murder, through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.
  • We believe, according to God’s Word, the Bible, that God calls humanity to sexual purity, and that sexual lust, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, pedophilia, incest and bestiality are forbidden by Him. We believe that the covenant of marriage is lifelong, and that it is between two people of the opposite sex, a biologically-born man and a biologically-born woman. We also believe that God is gracious and powerful, and that He is willing and able to forgive and deliver anyone from any sexual sin if they will repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.
