Statement of Faith

List of 5 items.

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired,

    the only infallible, authoritative word of God.
  • We believe that there is one God,

    eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus 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, and in His personal return to power and glory.
  • We believe regeneration by the Holy Spirit

    is essential for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity.
  • We believe God created the world

    out of nothing in order to reveal His glory, eternal power, wisdom, and goodness. God made everything in the world, visible and invisible. After God had made all other creatures, he created man, male and female in his own image.
