Statement of Faith

We believe that…

The 66 books of the Old and New Testament are given by God, infallible and inerrant, divinely inspired to the very words as written by the human authors.

There is One God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Our Lord Jesus Christ is eternal Son of God, born of a virgin through the Holy Spirit. Fully God and fully man, He lived a sinless human life, taught and performed miracles, then died on the cross to atone for the sins of mankind. He rose from the dead after three days, ascended to heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father where He ministers as our High Priest and Advocate.

All mankind is lost without Christ, and salvation is only possible through the merits of the shed blood of the Lord Jesus. Salvation is received by faith apart from works, and is evidenced by radical regeneration through the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ, comes to indwell those who choose to lose their lives for Christ and for the gospel. He enables the believer to live a holy and victorious life, and to actively share the gospel with the lost.

The Church, the Body of Christ, consists of all who are united by the Holy Spirit with Christ. The urgent mission of all who belong to the Body is to proclaim the gospel and make disciples.

Christ will return to this earth in bodily form, and both the saved and the lost will be resurrected. Those who are saved will receive eternal life in heaven, while those who are lost are sent to eternal death, which is hell.
