Our Statement of Faith
THE TRIUNITY OF GOD
We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections. (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Psalm 18:30-31, 147:5; Matthew 28:19; Mark 12:29; Luke 3:22; John 4:24, 5:23,10:30, 14:9; Acts 5:3-4; II Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:1-3)
THE PERSON OF JESUS CHRIST
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit. (Isaiah 7:14, 9:6-7; Matthew 1:18-25; Mark 14:61-62; John 1:1-3, 14, 29, 5:18, 8:58, 10:30; II Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 1:2-9, 2:14-15; I John 5:20)
THE WORK OF JESUS CHRIST
THE CREATION AND FALL OF MAN
THE SALVATION OF MAN
We believe that salvation from God’s judgment is only possible by appropriating the work of Jesus Christ on the cross by faith. We receive this salvation when we believe on the Lord and trust fully in His blood. By doing this we are born again of the Holy Spirit and receive the gift of eternal life. Salvation comes therefore by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.
We believe that Christ died for the whole world and that all humanity is eligible to believe on Christ and be saved.
We believe that whoever truly trusts in the finished work of Christ for salvation receives the gift of eternal life and is eternally secure. That is, a truly saved person can not lose the salvation that God has given. (John 1:11-13, 3:16, 5:24, 10:28-30,14:6; Acts 16:31; Romans 3:23-26, 5:8, 6:23, 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5; Hebrews 7:24-25; I Peter 1:18-19; I John 5:11-13)
THE MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
THE DESTINY OF MAN
We believe that the Bible teaches that upon death the believer passes immediately into the presence of Christ in Heaven. Unbelievers pass immediately into Hades and at the final judgment are sentenced to be eternally separated from God (Hell). (Daniel 12:2; Luke 16:22-23,23:43; II Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 3:10, 11, 21; Revelation 20:11-15)
