Statement of Faith
There is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.
The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule for faith and practice.
In God the Father, an infinite personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayers; and that He saves from death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
In Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit; we believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection for His people, and His personal, visible return to earth.
In the Holy Spirit, who came from the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment; and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ for ministry. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher, and guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the biblical gifts of the Holy Spirit.
All people are sinners by nature and choice and, therefore, are under condemnation. God regenerates by the Holy Spirit those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord. We believe Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and empowers the believer for service.
In the universal church, the living spiritual body, of which Jesus Christ is head, of which all regenerated persons, are members. In the personal, visible return of Jesus Christ to the earth and the establishing of His Kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and blessing of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked. In “The Apostles Creed” as embodying the fundamental facts of the Christian faith.
