Statement of Faith

We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(John 1:1-14; Matthew 28:19; Deuteronomy 6:4)

We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary; crucified by the people and resurrected bodily by God, the Father, on the third day.
(Matthew 1:18-25; Galatians 4:4; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be verbally inspired by God and without error in the original manuscripts.  We accept the Scriptures as the correct rule for life and conduct.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 19:7)

We believe in the universal sinfulness of humanity, bringing everyone under God’s wrath and judgment.  Salvation is by grace alone, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
(Romans 3:23; Galatians 3:22; Ephesians 2:8-9)

We believe in the substitutionary sacrifice of the incarnate Son of God as the sole ground of redemption from the guilt, penalty, and power of sin.
(1 Peter 1:17-21; 2 Corinthians 5:21)

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers in order to regenerate, illuminate, and sanctify them.
(1 Corinthians 12:12-13; John 14:15-17)

We believe in the unity and common priesthood of all believers who together form the one universal church.  Believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper are the two ordinances to be practiced in the local church.
(1 Peter 2:9; Matthew 26:26-29, 28:19-20)

We believe in the imminent return of Jesus Christ to receive His church.
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; John 14:1-4)
