Statement of Faith

 

SECTION 1:   GOD

 

We believe in the eternal, sovereign and triune God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), who created the universe including our world by His power and out of nothing, in beauty and perfection of His goodness.

 

SECTION 2:  MANKIND

 

We believe the literal, historical and biblical creation of Adam and Eve in the image of God, in righteousness, holiness and truth, whose nature was without sin.  Furthermore, we believe that through Adam mankind has fallen into sin and now is in a state of depravity and disobedience.  All men (mankind) are born sinful and naturally estranged from God and live in a world thoroughly corrupted by sin.  Therefore, we affirm the need for all mankind to be redeemed from its sin and we confess that mankind, though fallen and depraved, is precious in the sight of God.

 

SECTION 3:  JESUS CHRIST

 

We believe that God the Father sent His Son, incarnate, born of the virgin Mary, and called Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ (anointed One), to pay the penalty for mankind's sin and offer forgiveness to those who would trust Him as Savior.  We affirm His resurrection, which guarantees our eternal life, and His high priestly ministry on behalf on the believer, His reign as Lord at the right hand of the Father, and His real, visible, and physical return to earth, in time to come, to judge the living and the dead.  Thus, we affirm man's importance by believing that all men are responsible to God and they are called upon to repent of their sins and believe in Christ.

 

SECTION 4: The HOLY SPIRIT

 

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is God, the third Person in the Trinity.  We believe in His divine work in coveting sinners through the gifts of repentance and faith by His grace.  We believe in His sanctifying work in all believers which changes them to become like Christ   We believe that the Holy Spirit guides, guards and grows the Church of Christ, and will bring all things to both completion and perfection according to the will of the Father and the work of the Son.  We affirm that the Holy Spirit indwells and should fill every Christian.

 

SECTION 5: THE HOLY SCRIPTURES

 

We believe that the Bible is the Holy Scriptures of God and is infallible because it cannot err and inerrant because it has not erred in all that it states.  The Bible is inspired by God, sufficient for all matters of faith and godliness, authoritative over all men, and relevant to every age.  In both its law and its gospel, it proclaims salvation by grace through faith and sects what men must believe about God and what God requires of men. 

 

SECTION 6:  THE CHURCH: THE BODY OF CHRIST

 

We believe in the Church of Christ, set forth in Scriptures as the communion of all believers worldwide, and in particular, the voluntary assemble of Christians in local congregations.  We affirm that every believer should unite, support, and be active in a bible-believing church that honors Christ, and worships the Fathers by the Holy Spirit.  We believe that every local church has an important responsibility to nurture, instruct, and guard the children of the church in the love of Christ.

 

SECTION 7:  ETERNAL LIFE

 

We believe in the immortality of the soul in a real and literal heaven as well as an actual hell.  We believe in the resurrection of the body, the judgment of the world by Christ, and the eternal reward of the believer along with the eternal punishment of the unbeliever.

 

SECTION 8:  SALVATION

 

We believe that our redemption is an act of grace, an unmerited gift given in love by God and not of human works.  We believe that upon receiving the Lord Jesus Christ by Faith, the believer is transferred from spiritual death into spiritual life, awareness, and fellowship with God the Father through the Holy Spirit.  We believe that one cannot enter the Kingdom of God unless he/she is born again of the Spirit.

 

SECTION 9:  BAPTISM AND THE LORD'S SUPPER

 

We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life through the Holy Spirit.

 

The Lord's Supper is a depiction of the Lord Jesus Christ's death on the cross for our sins and weaknesses.  We believe that when believers come together around the Lord's Table with sincere repenting hearts and understanding that Grace is available to heal and strengthen.  It is a symbol of obedience to the Lord's word to do it "in remembrance of HIM."

 

SECTION 10:  STEWARDSHIP

 

We believe that the earth and the fullness thereof belongs to the LORD; therefore, we are stewards who will be called into account.  As a result, we commit to serving the Lord with our time, talents, and treasure.  According to the scripture, believers should contribute their finances, their talents, and their time cheerfully, regularly and liberally for the advancing of the Lord's work in the earth.
