Statement of Faith

1. We believe that all Scriptures - consisting of sixty-six books in the Old and New Testaments - are the only divinely inspired Word of God.  The Scriptures are without error in the original manuscripts and are the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.  (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:19-21; 1 Timothy 4:12-13; James 1:21-25) 


2. We believe that there is only one living and true God, eternally existing as three distinct persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit - who are equal in power and glory.  This triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.  (Genesis 1:1,2; Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 9:6; Psalms 2:7; Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 2:18; 1 Timothy 1:17) 


3. We believe that Jesus Christ our Lord is the Son of God - both fully God and fully man - and the Savior of the world.  Through his life, death, and bodily resurrection, he atoned for sin and made provision for the redemption of mankind.  (Matthew 1:18-25; John 1:14; 3:16; Romans 3:25; 1 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 2:9; 1 Peter 3:18) 


4. We believe that the Holy Spirit, the third person of the blessed Trinity, brings people into a saving relationship with God, and that he is the Comforter, Sanctifier, and Guide of all who receive Jesus Christ as personal Savior.  He empowers the believer to live in obedience to Christ.  (John 3:3-8; 14:16-18,26; 16:8-11,13,15; Romans 15:16; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; Titus 3:5) 


5.      We believe that humankind was created in the image of God, for the purpose of glorifying God.  As a result of Adam’s fall, sin entered into the human race as a universal condition, and sin condemned the whole human race to death.  (Genesis 1:27; 3:1-6; Romans 3:10-12,23; 5:12,18) 


6.  We believe that repentance of personal sins and reception of Jesus Christ as personal Savior is the one and only way whereby sinners may inherit eternal life.  The salvation of the believer is by grace through faith alone, apart from works, in the finished work of Christ on the cross.   (Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:8,9; 1 John 5:12) 


7.      We believe that the Church is the body of believers united in Christ with him as the head.  The universal Church is composed of the redeemed of all ages. The local church is the organized manifestation of the universal Church.  The life of the church should be manifested in worship, instruction, fellowship, evangelism and service.  (Matthew 16:18; Acts 2:38-42, 46-47; Ephesians 4:4-6, 11-16; 5:23) 


8. We believe that Jesus Christ will return personally, visibly and bodily, in power and glory, to consummate his salvation and his judgment.  (Matthew 25:31-46; Acts 1:11; 24:15; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17) 


9. We believe in the bodily resurrection of all dead. Those believing in Christ will be resurrected into eternal life, but those rejecting Christ will be resurrected into eternal punishment.  (John 5:28-29; I Corinthians 15:20-23, 40-44; Revelation 20:11-15).


10. We believe that baptism by water is the public declaration of Christ as Savior and   Lord.  It is a symbol of one’s union, by faith, with Christ in death, burial, and resurrection.  (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38-41; Romans 6:3-5)  The Lord’s Supper should be observed by all believers.  It consists of partaking corporately of the bread and cup, in remembrance of the death of Christ for the remission of sins.  (Luke 22:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-34)

11. We believe that God created man and He created them male and female in His image. As such, He created them different as to complement and complete one another.  We believe that God instituted, ordained and defines marriage as a monogamous relationship between one male born and one female born, and as such, we believe that marriage is exclusively the legal union of one man and one woman.  For this reason, homosexuality and all other “sexual preferences” or “orientations” are unnatural, sinful, and unacceptable to God.  Consequently, this church ministry will not perform any marriage ceremonies between two individuals of the same sex.  It will not condone or recognize such same-sex marriages, civil unions, or domestic partnerships, even though state law provides recognition of such unions. (Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:4-6, John 4:16-18, Romans 1:18-32, 1Corinthians 5:11, 6:9-11, 6:18-20, and 7:1-3 and 8-9; Galatians 5:19-21, Ephesians 5:3-7; and 1Timothy 1:9-11).
