statement of faith
We believe that the Bible is God's Word, written by men divinely inspired, and that it is absolutely trustworthy and has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in God the Father, Creator of heaven and earth, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men and women, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son; conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, sinless in His life, making atonement for the sin of the world by His death on the cross. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His high priestly intercession for His people, and His personal, visible return to the world according to His promise.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from God to convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and judgment and to regenerate, indwell, sanctify, and comfort all who believe in Jesus Christ.
We believe that all men and women by nature and by choice are sinners, but those who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God's presence, and those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God. Each human being is responsible to God alone in all matters of faith.
We believe in the church as a living, spiritual body of which Christ is the Head and of which all regenerated people are members. We believe that a visible church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, buried with Him in baptism and associated for worship, work, and fellowship. We believe that to these visible churches were committed the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Supper, and that God has laid upon these churches the task of persuading a lost world to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and to enthrone Him as Lord and Master.
