Statement of Faith
We believe that all scripture is “God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” We believe the Bible to be the inspired, timeless and living Word of God.
We believe that there is one true God - Sovereign and Creator of all things in heaven and earth. God exists in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - the Trinity. God is all-powerful, all-knowing and present in all things - full of mercy and love. The Father imparted Himself to us in the Person of Jesus Christ.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin and made man, who dwelt among us. He lived a sinless life, suffered, died on the cross and rose again in victory. His death on the cross was the ultimate sacrifice for the sin of mankind.
We believe that the Holy Spirit was given to mankind to be the Helper and Comforter. The Holy Spirit occurs at the moment of salvation and provides guidance and truth. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit occurs at the moment of salvation and provides direction as we strive to live a Godly life.
We believe “the chief end of man is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.”
We believe God’s purpose in bringing the church into existence was that He might manifest through the church the manifold wisdom and grace and power of God; that believers - followers of Jesus - should be instruments to bring praise and honor and glory to Him.
