Statement of Faith

I believe in:

  • One God in three persons — Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • Jesus Christ’s deity, virgin birth, sinless humanity, substitutionary death, atoning blood, bodily resurrection and ascension to heaven
  • The entire Bible is God’s infallible revelation to man
  • Salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone
  • The resurrection of the body: eternal glory for believers in heaven and everlasting punishment for unbelievers in hell
  • The one true church, the body of Christ, consisting of all believers
  • Obedience to our Lord’s command to lead people of all nations to faith in Christ and to grow in Christ-likeness
  • Christ’s personal return to establish His Kingdom on earth
  • The Holy Spirit indwells and empowers believers and is given as a seal and a pledge of our inheritance in Christ Jesus
