Statement of Faith

We believe in one God and Master of the universe, the Trinity, including the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, lived a life without sin, died an atoning death on the cross, rose from the dead and ascended into heaven where He is the only mediator between God and man.

We believe the Bible is God’s inspired Word, authoritative and complete. It is without error in all its teachings. We believe Christians must submit to its divine authority in all matters of belief and conduct, which is demonstrated by a life of godly words, actions, and reactions.

We believe that all people are sinners and fall short of the mark, making them unable to see God’s kingdom, except by being born again. This justification comes by grace and through faith in Jesus Christ alone.

We believe in one holy, universal Church. This Church is called to worship God and witness to others concerning His Son, Jesus Christ, preaching the Good News of the Gospel wherever and whenever possible. We believe part of this preaching involves lovingly serving others and ministering to their physical, material, and emotional needs, as well as to their spirits. We believe that the work of the Holy Spirit is both vital and necessary for the individual’s new birth and growth to maturity as a believer in Christ.

We believe that Jesus Christ will personally and noticeably return in glory to bring salvation and judgment to completion. We further believe God will fully manifest His kingdom when He establishes a new heaven and new earth, in which He will be glorified forever, and exclude all evil, suffering, and death.
