Our Statement of Faith
What we hold to be true
We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant and infallible Word of God.
(2 Timothy 3:16)
We believe there is one God eternally existent as; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(Genesis 1:1; John 10:30; John 4:24)
We believe the deity of Christ
His virgin Birth
(Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35);
His shed blood for atonement
(Ephesians 1:7; Colossians 1:14);
His bodily resurrection
His rapture of the church (1Thessalonians 4:13-18) and His personal return to earth. (Revelation 19:11-16)
We believe that all mankind are by nature sinful and lost and that for salvation, redemption by the precious blood of Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
(Romans 3:19,23; 1 Peter 1:18,19)
We believe that Satan is a literal being and that hell is a literal place of eternal conscious punishment of all unsaved.
(Job 1:6,7; Matthew 25:46; Revelation 20:14,15)
We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts of sin, makes believers children of God through the new birth, assuring them of heaven, and “by His indwelling power” enables Christians to live a godly life.
(John 16:8; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 12:13)
We believe that all mankind are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
(Acts 13:38,39; Ephesians 2:8,9)
We believe in the eternal security of the believer.
(John 10:28,29; 6:47)
We believe that baptism is a scriptural ordinance requiring immersion (Acts 8:38,39) of believers only.
(Acts 2:41; Matthew 3:15,16)
We believe that the Lord’s Supper is a scriptural ordinance of the church to be partaken of by believers of like faith.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: the saved unto the resurrection of life and the lost unto the judgment of eternal punishment.
(John 5:28,29; Revelation 20:14,15)
We believe in the biblical definition of marriage which is a union between one man and one woman.
Sexual identity is determined by birth gender. We believe that any sexual relations outside of biblical marriage are in disobedience to God’s Word.
(1 Corinthians 6:18-20; 7:1; Hebrews 13:4)
