Statement Of Faith: STATEMENT OF FAITH
We Believe In:
1. The supernatural and complete inspiration of the Scriptures – that they are without error and that their
teaching and authority are absolute, supreme, and final,
2. The Trinity of the Godhead – God, the Father; God, the Son; and God, the Holy Spirit,
3. The personality of God – the personality and deity of Jesus Christ, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the
Virgin Mary, fully God and fully man; the personality of the Holy Spirit,
4. The sinfulness of man – that all human beings are born separated from God because of sin, are totally
depraved and need a Savior from sin,
5. The Atonement – that God accepted Jesus Christ’s death on the cross as once – and – for – all the
punishment for the sins of the world,
6. The resurrection of Jesus Christ – that His body was raised from the dead according to the Scriptures, and
that He ascended into Heaven and sits on the right hand of God as the believer’s Advocate,
7. The necessity of the new birth – salvation from sin is a gift of God through faith in Jesus Christ and not of
works; good works are evidence of faith in the life of the believer,
8. The literal resurrection of the body, both of the saved and of the unsaved,
9. The eternal life of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost,
10. The evangelization of the world – the supreme mission of the church in this age is to preach the good news
of Jesus Christ to every creature,
11. The return of Christ to earth according to Scripture.
