Statement of Faith
The Bible is the inspired word of God, the written record of His supernatural revelation of Himself to man, absolute in its authority, complete in its revelation, final in its content and without any error in its original autographs (II Tim. 3:16, 17).
FALLENNESS OF MAN
All men in their natural state are alienated from God and spiritually dead (Rom. 3:23).
Salvation is only by grace, a free gift of God, through faith in the Lord Jesus, who died for our sins according to the Scriptures (I Cor. 15:3). Those who receive Christ by faith have their sins forgiven (Eph. 1:7), and become children of God (John 1:12).
NATURE OF GOD
God is one God, who reveals Himself in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Eph. 4:4-6). Jesus Christ, as the Scriptures affirm, is the Son of God and Son of Man. He was born of a virgin and is Himself God. The Scriptures also declare the deity and personality of the Holy Spirit.
RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST
Our Lord Jesus rose from the dead in the same body that was laid to rest in the tomb (John 20:25-27). The bodies of all believers who die will be raised from the dead and they will receive an incorruptible body like His glorious body (I Cor. 15:53).
LIFE IN THE SPIRIT
Christians, born of the Spirit, are to live the new life in the present power of the Spirit (Gal. 5:1-25; Col. 2:6). The Christian’s responsibility is to yield himself to God (Rom. 6:13), trusting God to keep him.
Christian “living” includes Christian service. In carrying on this work, believers need the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit which is granted to every Christian as he yields and trusts in God (Acts 1:8; I Cor. 12:7; Eph. 3:20; Acts 5:32). In all of this service, prayer is to have the central place (John 14:12-14).
Jesus Christ will come again to the earth a second time (Heb. 9:28), personally (Acts1:11; I Thes. 4:1), bodily (Acts 1:11; Col. 2:9) and visibly (Matt. 26:64; Rev. 1:7).
