Statement of Faith

What is Scripture and the Bible?

We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testament, are the inspired Word of God and without error. The scriptures are both the final and divine authority for both Christian doctrine and training in righteousness. 

In the Bible, God reveals his plan for salvation. The story of Jesus’ birth, death and resurrection explain his redemptive love for mankind. God’s nature and attributes are revealed through the Word of God which weaves a connected story over many generations. 

 

2nd Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20, 21

 

Who is God?

We believe in one true, infinitely perfect God, Creator of all things. God is eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. 

 

Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Revelation 4:11; Hebrews 1:3; 1 Corinthians 8:6

 

Who is Jesus Christ?

We believe Jesus Christ is fully man and fully God. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus died on the cross, paying our sin debt in full in a sacrificial act according to Scripture. His body rose from the dead and ascended into heaven, where Jesus is seated at the right hand of God the Father. Jesus is the mediator between God and man, and our High Priest and Advocate. In the person of the Holy Spirit, he indwells the believer. Jesus will come again to judge the living and the dead.

 

Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; 1 Corinthians 15; Romans 3:24-25; 1 John 1: 1-2; Acts 1:9,10; 1 John 2:1,2; Hebrews 7;

1 Peter 2:21, 25

 

Holy Spirit

We believe the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify God giving Him the glory and reverence which is His due. The Holy Spirit convicts, indwells the believer, changes, guides, instructs, corrects and empowers the believer to live a righteous life and to serve.

 

John 16: 8-13; 1 Corinthians 12: 12-14; Ephesians 1:13-14; Romans 8:9; Titus 3:5 

Ephesians 5:18; 1 John 2:20-27

 

Mankind

We believe mankind was created in God’s image. We believe man fell into sin and now all mankind is born with a sin nature. Salvation and spiritual life can be obtained by being made new by the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

Genesis 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 15:21, 22; Romans 3: 9-23; Ephesians 2:1-3; John 3:36

 

Salvation

Problem

  • But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. (Isaiah 59:2)

  • For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23)

 

Solution

  • God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.( 2 Corinthians 5:21)

  • For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

  • For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

 

Your Response

  • He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

  • They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” (Acts 16:30-31)

  • Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—(John 1:12)

 

How Can I Know That God Is At Peace With Me?

  • Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,  (Romans 5:1)

 

God Wants You To Know

  • You are deeply loved.

  • . . . And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, (Ephesians 3:17-18)

  • God wants to help you lead an abundant life.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10)

Baptism

We believe baptism is a believer's declaration of their new identity in Christ. It is not a means to salvation or eternal life.

 

Christ’s Return

We believe Christ will return to judge all people. Believers will be welcomed into God’s presence in Heaven. Unbelievers will be eternally separated from God in Hell.

 

1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18; Malachi 3:18; Matthew 25: 34-41; John 5: 26, 29; Revelation 20: 4-6
