Statement of Faith

One God

We believe:

In one God existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
- John 1:1

To honor Jesus is to honor the Father, to dishonor Jesus is to dishonor the Father.

That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. - John 5:23

In Him is eternal life.

And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. - 1 John 5:11

Person of Jesus

We believe:

Jesus Christ is the divine, eternal and only begotten Son of God.

And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. - John 20:28

Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin and lived a sinless life.

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. - Matthew 1:20

Jesus physically rose from the dead and has ascended to the right hand of the Father.

Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. - John 20:27

Jesus is coming back in great glory, to receive his disciples.

And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. - Matthew 24:30

The Holy Spirit

We believe:

He was sent forth from the Father to convict the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment.

And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: - John 16:8

He indwells, regenerates, sanctifies, instructs and comforts the saints.

And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; - John 14:16

Salvation

We believe:

Jesus lived a sinless life and, in death, as a spotless lamb, atoned for the sins of the world.

Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
- John 8:46

AND

And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. - Romans 5:11

Our salvation comes by grace through faith in God, not by doing good works.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. - Ephesians 2:8-9

The Lord commissioned the church to proclaim to a lost and sinful world that:

  • He, Jesus Christ, is the Son of God, Who suffered and rose again
    from the dead on the third day.
  • Forgiveness of sins is available to all who put their faith in Him.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
- Matthew 28:19-20

The Bible

We believe:

The Bible is God's Word. In its original tongue it is without error, and therefore is our final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: - 2 Timothy 3:16

Church Unity

We believe:

The above doctrines are essential. While we may have opinions on many other doctrines, Christians do not please God when they cause division in the church over non-essential doctrine or denominational differences.
