Statement of Faith

1. We believe the Bible to be the only fully inspired, infallible, inerrant and authoritative written
Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21)

2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons; Father, Son and Holy
Spirit. (Genesis 1:1; John 10:30, 37, 38)

3. We believe in the full deity and full humanity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His
sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious, substitutionary atonement through His shed blood,
in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal
return in power and glory. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35; Hebrews 4:15, 7:25, 9:12;
John 2:11, 11:25; Colossians 1:14; Acts 1:11; Revelations 19:11, 16)

4. We believe that the human race is fallen in Adam and that the salvation of lost and sinful man
depends upon the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ and is made effectual by grace through
faith. (Romans 3:23; John 3:16, 19, 4:24; Ephesians 2:8,9; Titus 3:5,6)

5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling and filling the
Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (Ephesians 5:18, 4:30; I Corinthians 3:16, 6:19, 20)

6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they who are saved unto the
resurrection of life and they who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28,29)

7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that all
disciples are called to attend, worship, and serve Him in a local congregation or fellowship that
is part of His Body, the Church. (Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12:12, 13; Galatians 3:26, 28)

8. We believe that man was created in the image of God and that, from the moment of
conception, each bears His image. (Genesis 1:26, 28, 5:1, 2)
