What We Believe - Statement of Faith
The Bible is the inspired Word of God.
There is one true God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality.
God the Father is Maker of heaven and earth.
Jesus Christ is God, the living Word who became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth; He is the only begotten Son of God. Through His death for our sins, all who believe in Him are justified and receive eternal life. He was crucified for our sins then rose from the dead on the third day. He will return in power and glory to judge the living and dead.
The Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to men. He convicts and draws sinners to Christ, regenerates them, continually indwells them from the moment of their spiritual birth, empowers them to live godly lives, and seals them until the day of redemption. His fullness, power and control are appropriated into the believer’s life by faith.
Man was created into the image of God. Man sinned by disobeying God and, thereby, incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death (eternal separation from God). This punishment is upon all men. Wonderfully though, through Jesus death on the cross in our place for our sins, all who believers in Him are justified and receive eternal life. We are to spread the Good News of His saving grace.
God commands His people to assemble together regularly for worship in His church.
God gives His people a Great Commission to make disciples of all nations and promises that He will be with us always until the end of the age.
