Statement of Faith
1. There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
(Deut. 6:4; Matt 5:48; Matt. 28:19)
2. Jesus Christ is the true God and the true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now at the right hand of Majesty on high as our great High Priest. He will come again to establish His kingdom, righteousness and peace. (Phil 2:6, 11; Luke 1:34, 38; 1 Pet 3:18; Heb 2:9; Rom 5:9; Acts 2:23, 24; Heb 8:1, Matt 26:64)
The Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to dwell, guide, teach, empower the believer, and convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. (John 14:15, 18; John 16:13; Acts 1: 8; John 16:7, 11)
4. The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice. (2 Pet 1:20, 21; 2 Tim 3:15, 16)
Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God: he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. The portion of the unrepentant and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment; and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss. (Gen 1:27; Rom 3:23; 1 Cor 15:20, 23; Rev 21:8; Rev 21:1, 4)
6. Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God. (Titus 3:4, 7)
