Statement of Faith


  • We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God; that it is inerrant, infallible, and the final authority for life and faith. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21)
  • We believe in one God, eternally existing in three distinct and equal persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, 26; Matt 3:16-17; Acts 5:3-4)
  • We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary; that He is truly God and truly man; and that He is the sufficient mediator between God and man. (Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-35; 1 Timothy 2:5)
  • We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he fell into sin; that he is born with a sin nature; that he is spiritually dead, separated from God, and totally unable to save himself. (Romans 3:22-23; Romans 5:12; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:1-12)
  • We believe that Jesus Christ came to the earth to be a substitutionary sacrifice for man; that salvation is by grace through personal faith in Him; and that there is no salvation apart from Him. (Acts 4:12; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Hebrews 9:26-28)
  • We believe that Christ died for our sins; that He arose from the dead; that He ascended into heaven; and that His place of authority at God’s right hand is secure forever. (John 20:25-29; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Hebrews 10:12)
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells, regenerates, seals, sanctifies, convicts, teaches, and empowers believers. (John 14:16, 17; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Ephesians 1:13, 4:30, 5:18; John 3:5, 6; 1 Thessalonians 4:3)
  • We believe that the true Church is composed of those individuals who place their faith in Jesus Christ. (Romans 6:3-4; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Galatians 3:26-27)
  • We believe that water baptism of believers and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed in the Church. (Matthew 28:18-20; Matthew 26:17-30)
  • We believe in the imminent return of Christ for His church. (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:11; Titus 2:11-13; 1 John 3:2-3)
  • We believe in the personal, literal, and bodily resurrection of both the believer and the unbeliever; the eternal punishment of the unbeliever, and the eternal joy of the believer. (John 5:28-29; 1 Corinthians 15:42-43, 51-54; Revelation 20:4-6, 11-15)
