Statement of Faith
We believe that the Holy Bible, including the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired, inerrant Word of God.
We believe in one Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary, is the Son of God, Son of Man, died on the cross as our substitute, atoned for our sin, was bodily resurrected from the dead, ascended to heaven, is seated at the right hand of God, and will return to reign in righteousness.
We believe that salvation is by grace, a free gift from God, not based on good works; is through personal faith in Christ who bore our sins on His body so that we might have eternal life with God.
We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts men of sin, indwells all believers, seals believers until the day of redemption, and sets believers apart to be holy.
We believe that Christians are to be witnesses of God’s love and are to share the good news of Jesus Christ with the world.
