STATEMENT OF FAITH

WE BELIEVE:

  1. There is one living and true God revealed as three equal persons of one substance: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  2. Jesus Christ is God’s Son. He became a man and was crucified on the cross to pay the punishment for all sins. He was fully God and perfect man.

  3. After he was crucified, Jesus rose from the dead and ascended into heaven. He will return on the last day.

  4. The Bible is the Word of God. It is the full and complete plan and history of how God has saved His people.

  5. The reward for accepting Jesus Christ into your heart is eternal life with God in heaven. The consequence of sin is eternal separation from God. (Matthew 25:46; Psalm 9:7; Revelation 21:7, 8)

  6. Jesus Christ shed His blood to pay for past and present sins. He will give new life to those who seek Him. (Romans 3:25; I John 3:5-10; Ephesians 2: 1-10)

  7. We are saved by faith in Jesus alone.

  8. Sanctification is both a definitive experience and a process of growth continuing throughout the life of a Christian. (John 15:2); Acts 26:18)

  9. Every Christian can be baptized in the Holy Spirit. This is an act of faith on the part of the believer. The initial evidence of the reception of this experience is speaking with other tongues as the Spirit leads. (Luke 11:13; Acts 1:5; Acts 2:1-4; Acts 8:17; Acts 10:44-46; Acts 19:6)

  10. God has the power to heal and does heal today in answer to prayer. (Isaiah 53:4, 5; Matthew 8:16, 17; Mark 16:14-18; Exodus 15:26)

  11. Jesus will return to earth again soon to establish His Kingdom.

  12. It is the responsibility of every believer to dedicate his or her life to sharing the gospel message. (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-20; Acts 1:8)

  13. Christ modeled and established water baptism by immersion (Acts 19:5; 10:47, 48; 8:37,38) and the Lord’s Supper for His followers. (I Corinthians 11:23-32)
