Concise Statement​

 

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, sufficient and authoritative for all
matters of faith, life, and godliness. 

We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three distinct persons, the Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe Jesus Christ is fully man and fully God, lived a perfect life, died a
substitutionary death on the cross for the sins of those who believe in Him, was buried
and after three days rose from the dead, conquering death, and is now seated at the
right hand of God. 

We believe all men are sinners, falling short of the glory of God, and are in need of
salvation from sin and its consequences.

We believe that salvation is by God's grace alone, through faith alone in Christ alone,
through the preaching of the gospel, repentance, and the regenerating work of the Holy
Spirit.

We believe every believer is indwelt by the Holy Spirit and is able and expected to
walk in the newness of the Spirit by obeying God and growing in Christ likeness.

We believe that salvation includes regeneration which produces increasing obedience
and transformation into the image of Christ.

We believe in the future resurrection of those who have died, those who believe in
Jesus Christ will be resurrected unto eternal life and those who do not believe in Jesus
Christ will be resurrected unto eternal punishment.

 

We believe in the universal church whereby all true believers are united through faith
in Christ according to the truth of God's Word; this faith is genuinely demonstrated in
the local church as we love one another like our Lord loved us.

 

We believe in the second bodily coming of Jesus Christ to set up a literal kingdom on
earth which will last one thousand years and will be followed by the eternal state and
the new heavens and earth.
