Statement of Faith
THE BIBLE: We believe the Holy Scriptures to be the divinely inbreathed, infallible, inerrant and authoritative Word of God.
GOD: We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in the Persons of the Holy Trinity.
JESUS: We believe in the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, His deity, His sinless humanity and perfect life, the eternal all-sufficiency of His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father’s right hand, and His return.
HOLY SPIRIT: We believe in the present day reality of the baptism in the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
SALVATION: We believe that we are justified solely on the merits of Christ and that we can be made new by the power of the Holy Spirit. We believe in the ordinances of baptism by immersion for believers and the Lord’s Supper.
ETERNITY: We believe in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed in heaven and the eternal doom of the unregenerate in the lake of fire.
