Statement of Faith

We believe that the Scriptures are the very Word of God in their entirety and, therefore, are our authority in matters of faith and practice.

We believe in one God, creator of the universe, eternally existing in the persons of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, crucified for our sin, and raised from the dead in eternal victory.  He is undiminished deity and genuine humanity in one person.

We believe that Heaven is the abode of God and the place of eternal joy for the saved, and that Hell is the place of eternal punishment of separation from God for the lost.

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a personal Being who convicts the world of sin and who regenerates, indwells, empowers, guides, and seals believers eternally for God.

We believe that God created man in His own image, and when man disobeyed God, he fell from grace and brought sin into the world. We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ (Acts 3:19-21; Rom 10:9-10). 

We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary for the salvation of lost sinners, and those who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again into the family of God.

We believe that the family of God is the Church, which is the body of believers of which Christ is the head.

We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male and female.  These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Gen 1:26-27). Further, we believe that the term "marriage" has only one meaning; the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Gen 2:18-25).
