Statement of Faith

We believe that both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible are the inspired and infallible Word of God, revealing the three Persons of the Godhead: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  (Isaiah 40:8, John 17:17, II Timothy 3:16-17)

We believe that man was created in the image of God for the divine purpose of glorifying Him, but became separated from God by sin.  As a consequence, man is under the wrath of God and is eternally lost apart from salvation through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  (Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 3:1-24, John 3:16-18, Romans 6:23)

We believe in the Incarnation and Virgin Birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as true God and true man.  (Matthew 1:18, John 1:1-14)

We believe that man is redeemed by grace through faith in Christ’s vicarious atonement for sins, the shedding of His blood on the Cross.  (Acts4:12, II Corinthians 5:21)

We believe that the gift of eternal life is available to all who receive Christ by faith, repenting of their sins and turning to God, desiring to obey all that He has commanded.  As such, each one is regenerated by the Holy Spirit and thereby becomes a child of God.  (Ephesians 2:8-9)

We believe that the church is the body of Christ, composed irrespective of denominational or organizational affiliation.  Members of this spiritual body are directed in Scripture to associate together in local assemblies.  The mission of the church is to make disciples of all people and nations and to bring them to maturity in Christ.  (Matthew 28:18-20, I Corinthians 12:13, Ephesians 2:11-22)

We believe in the bodily resurrection of Christ.  His imminent return, and the resurrection of His people. (Matthew 24:29-30, Acts 1:11)

We believe that the chief end of man is to glorify God by enjoying Him forever.  (John Piper)

The Statement of Faith is fundamental to basic Christian tenets and contains those doctrines to which we unreservedly adhere to and teach.
