Statement of Faith
“All things are possible when you believe”
We believe that the Bible is the only authoritative, inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God, and that the Scriptures are our final rule in all matters of faith and practice.
We believe that there is but one, infinite, personal, perfect and good God, eternally existent in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, each of whom is fully God. God’s existence and character are determined by Himself alone and are not dependent on anyone or anything else.
We believe that God created man, male and female, in His image and for His own glory. Man’s purpose in life is to bring glory to God by enjoying Him forever. Adam, the first man, sinned in his disobedience toward God thereby breaking fellowship with God, and through such disobedience sin extended to all mankind. We are all born sinners, spiritually dead and relationally separated from God.
We believe that Jesus Christ, born of the Virgin Mary, perfect Man and truly God, came to earth to fulfill the divine law through perfect obedience. Having lived a sinless life in obedience to the Father, He gave His life on the Cross as the perfect, complete sacrifice for sin. On the third day, God raised Him from the dead, after He had provided a full redemption for all those who, by God’s grace through faith alone, turn from their sins and believe in the name of Jesus Christ. We believe God will regenerate all for whom Christ died through the invincible power of the Holy Spirit.Christ will one day return to judge the world and deliver His faithful. A persevering personal faith in Christ, which is the gift of God, is the way to eternal salvation for all mankind.
We believe that the Father has given Christ all authority in heaven and earth; that He is Sovereign Lord of all creation and every area of life, not just “religious” or “spiritual” life; that as Christians we are commanded to love Him with all our minds as well as our heart and soul; that we love Him with all our minds by: 1) refusing to conform to the unbelieving thinking patterns of the world, and 2) renewing our minds and transforming our thinking patterns to take every thought captive to Christ.
Christ is the way, the truth and life intellectually as well as spiritually. His Word is the source of all truth, and apart from knowing and submitting to His Word true understanding and wisdom in any subject is impossible.
