STATEMENT OF FAITH

There is only one true God who is the Creator, the King, and Redeemer of the world.  He is holy, just, loving, and good.  He is one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.

The Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is the Messiah, God’s Anointed One. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven.  He is alive today, in the presence of God the Father and in His people.

We are saved by the grace given by God, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ.  Jesus Christ is the only way to God the Father.  Anyone can be restored to relationship with God and enter the kingdom of God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Lord and Savior.  The Holy Spirit convicts, regenerates, justifies, and adopts us as God’s sons and daughters.

Through the indwelling and sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, we as believers are empowered to live a holy life, have God’s power to witness to the nations, and expand the kingdom of God.

The victorious redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy - sin, lies, sickness and torment.

The Church is the bride of Christ and consists of all sons and daughters of God.  The Church exists to expand the kingdom of God by preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, undoing the work of the enemy, living the truth of God’s love, discipling the nations, baptizing and teaching the world to love and obey God.

Our Lord Jesus Christ will come again in a glorious visible return to rule and reign with His bride the church.

Heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost, the sons and daughters to everlasting life and the lost to everlasting death.
