Statement of Faith
The Bible is the Word of God and is verbally inspired in all parts and, as originally given by God, is without error.
The Lord God Almight is one God who exists eternally as three persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is eternal God who was both completely divine and completely human, yet without sin, who died on the cross as a substitutionary payment for our sins: He was bodily resurrected from the grave, ascended into Heaven and is coing again at the end of the age.
The Holy Spirit indwells each believer at the moment of their regeneration, empowers each believer with spiritual gifts of His choosing, but with no one gift being the evidence of His presence.
Man was created by God in the image of God but chose to sin against God, which resulted in the spiritual and ultimate physical death of man and now requires that he place his trust in the death and resurrection of Christ for salvation and new life.
Satan is a spirit who exists as the adversary of God and His people and who will ultimately be thrown into the eternal lake of fire.
Jesus Christ will, at the end of the age, judge all those who have refused to place their trust in Him and will cast them into the lake of fire for eternity. Those who believe will spend eternity in Heaven with Him.
The ordinances of the church are Baptism and Communion. Believers engaged in sin are confronted according to Matthew 18.
Salvation is obtained as a result of the free gift of God through Jesus Christ and is received as a result of personal faith in the finished work of Christ on the cross as well as accepting Him as Lord God of our life. The believer is eternally secure in Jesus and cannot forfeit his salvation.
