Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, authoritative, and infallible Word of God (II Timothy 3:16 ).
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is,
seen and unseen. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (I John 5:4-6).
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being
with the Father. Through Him all things were made. For us and for our salvation He came
down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit He became incarnate from the Virgin
Mary, and was made man and lived a sinless life. For our sins He was crucified under
Pontius Pilate; He suffered death and was buried. On the third day He rose again in
accordance with the Scriptures; He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand
of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His
kingdom will have no end. We believe in His miracles (I Corinthians 15:3; I Peter 2:21-30; John 3:16).
We believe the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing for body, mind,
and spirit in answer to believing prayer (Isaiah 53:5; 1 Peter 2:24; James 5:14 -16).
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father. We
believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is
absolutely essential (Romans 3:21 -30; Galatians 4:4-7).
We believe and stand for holiness and for a sanctified life. We believe in the holy covenant
of marriage between one man and one women. We believe in the sanctity of human life,
therefore we are pro-life. (I Corinthians 6:9-10; I Timothy 1:10; Psalm 106:37-39)
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit who indwells every believer and
operates in all believers in the power and gifts of the Spirit, manifesting them as He wills
(John 14:16-Acts 1:5, 8; Acts 2:2-4; 1 Corinthians 12-14; Galatians 5:22).
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost-they that are saved unto the
resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:24, 28-29).
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, and seek community
together, to "become more and more in every way like Christ who is the Head of His body,
the church" (Ephesians 4:15 -16).
