STATEMENT OF FAITH

 
We believe that the sixty-six books of the Bible are the inspired and inerrant Word of God.
 
We believe the one true God exists eternally in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that these, being one God, are equal in deity, power, and glory.
 
We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, that He was conceived and born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and offered himself as a substitutionary sacrifice for sinners.
 
We believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.
 
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ baptizes believers in the Holy Spirit, in whom also we are sealed for the day of redemption.
 
We believe that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are two ordinances of the church to be observed until the time of Christ’s return.
 
We believe that the church is God’s primary instrument through which He is fulfilling His redemptive purposes in the earth.
 
We believe that God has called the church to preach the gospel to all nations, and especially to remember the poor and to minister to their needs through sacrificial giving and practical service.
 
We believe in the literal second coming of Christ at the end of the age when He will return to the earth personally and visibly to consummate His kingdom.
 
We believe that when the Christian dies he/she passes immediately into the blessed presence of Christ, there to enjoy conscious fellowship with the Savior until the day of the resurrection and glorious transformation of the body.
