WHAT WE BELIEVE

STATEMENT OF FAITH

 

01. The Scriptures in the Old and New Testaments...

-are inerrant in their original writings and are the inspired Word of God, the only infallible authority regarding salvation, faith and practice.

 

02. there is one god...

-eternal and self-existing in three divine persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – who are to be equally worshiped and served.

 

03. Jesus Christ Is god incarnate...

-subject to the Father, fully God and fully man, one person in two natures. He was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, was crucified and died, arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.

 

04.  the holy spirit, in all that he does...

-glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ. He convicts the world of its guilt and regenerates sinners. In Him they are baptized into union with Christ and adopted as heirs in the family of God. He also indwells, illuminates, guides, equips and empowers believers to follow in the example of Christ.

 

05. all mankind is lost in sin...

-and totally helpless. In union with Adam, all human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, therefore alienated from God and under His holy wrath. Only by the grace of a sovereign God can we be rescued, reconciled and renewed by the life-giving power of the Holy Spirit. We receive God’s grace through faith in the atoning work of Jesus Christ, who, as our representative and substitute, shed His blood on the cross as the perfect, all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins. The work of Christ is the only ground for salvation.

 

06. As sinners, we come to faith in Christ...

-as the Holy Spirit convicts us through the Scriptures, causing us to be born again to become children of God. Justification is by grace alone, received by faith alone, and through it the undeserving sinner repents and is credited with the righteousness of Christ.

 

07. Saving Faith results in a process of sanctification...

-in the life of the Christian, necessarily producing good works and service for the glory of God. God commands us to love Him above all and others sacrificially, with care and compassion for one another and toward the poor, seeking justice for the oppressed. In obedience to Christ’s commission, we are to constantly strive to make disciples among all people.

08. Christ alone is the head of the church local and universal...

-comprised of all those who belong to Christ. The mission of the church is to glorify God by building itself up in unity and faith, preaching the Word, fellowship, evangelism, and keeping the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper.  Ordained by Christ, baptism and the Lord’s Supper are a means of grace, but are not a means of salvation.

09. jesus christ will return to earth...

-
visibly and bodily, at a time when He is not expected, to complete history and the eternal plan of God. We believe that God will raise the dead bodily and judge the world. Those who reject Christ will be condemned to eternal conscious punishment, but the believer will enjoy eternal blessedness and joy with the Lord in the new heaven and the new earth, to the praise of His glorious grace. 

 
 

Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes…
