Statement of Faith

WE BELIEVE the Bible is the inspired, Inerrant and infallible Word of God and the only rule of faith and practice.  We believe that God is a Spirit, and that there are three persons in the Godhead:  the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  These are one God, the same in substance, equal in power and glory.

WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who became man.  He took to Himself a true body, yet without sin, conceived in the Virgin Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit.  He offered Himself a sacrifice for sins to satisfy divine justice and to reconcile man to God through faith in Him.  We believe in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, following which He ascended to Heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

WE BELIEVE that man is saved from sin by grace through faith in Christ, apart from works of the law.  This spiritual birth from above results in a new life of obedience to Him.  This takes place by the power of the Holy Spirit, who indwells every believer.  We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE that at death the souls of believers pass immediately into glory, and their bodies rest in the grave until the resurrection when these bodies will be glorified and re-united with the souls in the presence of the Lord forever.  Unbelievers will be eternally separated from God in judgment.  We also believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory according to His promise.
