Statement of Faith
We are exhorted to grow in the grace & knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, 2 Peter 3:18 – But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.
We believe in one God, who exists in three Persons — the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is loving, holy and just.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is inspired and accurate. It is our perfect guide in all matters of life.
We believe that sin has separated us all from God, and that only through Jesus Christ can we be reconciled to God.
We believe that Jesus Christ is both God and Man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, took all our sins upon Himself, died and rose again. Today, He is seated at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Mediator.
We believe that salvation is the gift of God to man. This gift is effected by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and it produces works pleasing to God.
We believe that water baptism is an outward act that demonstrates a believer’s identification with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is our Comforter. He guides us in all areas of our lives. He also blesses us with spiritual gifts and empowers us to yield the fruit of the Spirit.
We believe that the Holy Communion is a celebration of Jesus’ death and our remembrance of Him.
We believe that God wants to transform, heal and prosper us, so that we can live blessed and victorious lives that will impact and help others.
We believe that we are called to preach the gospel to all nations.
We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again just as He promised.
Our Doctrinal Summary
The Spirit of God leads the church into all truth. John 16:13 - But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.
There is one God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
God the Father made all things through the Son, sent the Son for our salvation, and gives us the Holy Spirit.
The Son of God, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, was born of the virgin Mary, fully God and fully human, and is the perfect revelation of the Father and the perfect representative of humanity. He suffered and died on the cross for all human sin, was raised bodily on the third day, and ascended to heaven. Standing in for all humanity before the Father, Jesus Christ provides the perfect human response to God. Since he died for all, all died in him, and all will be made alive in him.
The Holy Spirit brings sinners to repentance and faith, assures believers of their forgiveness and acceptance as God’s dearly loved children, and works in them to conform them to the image of Jesus Christ.
The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God that testifies to Jesus Christ. The Bible is fully authoritative in all matters of life.
Salvation comes only by God’s grace and not by works, and it is experienced through faith in Jesus Christ. Christians respond to the joy of salvation when they gather in regular fellowship and live godly lives in Jesus Christ.
We look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the age to come.
