Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible in its entirety to be the inspired Word of God and the infallible rule of faith and conduct.
(2 Timothy 3:16).
We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Creator of all things.
(1 John 5:4-6).
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal, future return to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years.
(1 Cor. 15:3; 1 Peter 2:21-24; John 3:16).
We believe in the resurrection of the dead, the eternal happiness of the saved, and eternal punishment of the lost.
(John 5:24, 28, 29).
We believe in personal salvation of believers through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
We believe in the Christian’s hope: the soon coming, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ
(1 Thessalonians 4:16-18).
