Statement of Faith

1.  We believe that there is but one living and true God, an eternally existent spiritual being of absolute knowledge, power and goodness; creator and preserver of all things visible and invisible. That in the unity of this Godhead, there are three persons of one substance, power and eternity - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

2.  We believe that Jesus Christ is the second person of the triune Godhead; that He was eternally of one substance with the Father; that He became incarnated by the Holy Spirit; was born of the virgin Mary, thus uniting in one perfect personality forever two whole and perfect natures, Godhead and manhood, very God and very man, the God-man Jesus Christ.

3. We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit; that He did proceed from the Father and the Son and is the third person of the Godhead, of one substance, power, and eternity with them; that He is present with and active in, the church, convicting the whole world of sin, righteousness and judgment.

4. We believe that the 66 books of the Old and New Testament which the church has universally accepted as the Holy Scriptures were given by divine inspiration and constitute the revealed Word of God, as the only supreme, sufficient and authoritative rule of faith and practice, and that the Holy Spirit, who motivated men of God to speak through the written word, has providentially guarded, in its preservation, the integrity of the message, and continues to illumine the hearts of those who read that they may understand God's redemptive plan.

5. We believe that man was a special creation by God but that he forfeited his first estate and is very far fallen from original righteous ness; and because of the corruption of his nature, as received from Adam, he is incline to evil and that continually.

6.  We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins and by the shedding of His blood made atonement for the sins of all mankind. This atonement is the only ground of salvation. We also believe in Christ's bodily resurrection from the dead, that He ascended into heaven to the right hand of the Father and is there today in intercession for us.

7.  We believe that every individual must accept Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and Lord; the Holy Spirit working in his life will bring him to God to do this act. This same Holy Spirit enables this previous sinner to live a godly life.

8.  We believe that Jesus Christ fills every Christian with the Holy Spirit and empowers him for service if he asks for this experience.

9.   We believe in the imminent, personal return of Jesus Christ to this world to establish His kingdom, to rule unrighteousness and to judge all unrepentant men.

10.  We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, that the bodies of both the just and the unjust shall be reunited with their spirits, that everlasting life is assured to all who believe in and follow Jesus Christ; and that the non-Christian shall go away into everlasting punishment in hell.

11.  We believe in the one holy universal church which is the body of Christ and to which all true believers belong, and in its mission to witness concerning its Head, Jesus Christ, preaching the gospel to all peoples.
