Statement of Faith

1.) We believe that the whole Bible, consisting of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, is verbally inspired of God and inerrant in the original writings. (2 Peter 1:20-21) (2 Timothy 3:16)

2.) We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons, The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and that these three are one God, having precisely the same nature, attributes, and perfections, and worthy of precisely the same homage, confidence, and obedience. (Mark 12:29) (John 1:1-4; 14) (Matthew 28:19-20) (Acts 5:3-4) (2 Corinthians 13:14) (Hebrews 1:1-3) (Revelation 1:4-6)

3.) We believe that man, having been created pure and in the image of God, is, by his own sin, fallen from his high and holy estate and at enmity with God, and we believe that in consequence all have sinned, are guilty and lost, and absolutely incapable of saving themselves by their own works, being dead in their trespasses and sins.(Romans 3:23) (Ephesians 2:8-9)

4.) We believe that owing to this universal depravity and death in sin, no one can enter the Kingdom of God unless born again; and that no degree of good works or reformation, however great; no baptism or other ordinance, however administered, can help the sinner to take even one step toward heaven; but a new nature imparted from above, a new life implanted by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential to salvation. (Isaiah 64:6) (John 3:3-18) (Philippians 3:4-9)
(Titus 3:5) (1 Peter 1:23)

5.) We believe that we are called with a holy calling to walk, not after the flesh, but after the Spirit, and so to live in the Spirit that we should not fulfill the lusts of the flesh; but the flesh being still in us to the end of our earthly pilgrimage, needs to be kept constantly in subjection to Christ, or it will surely manifest its presence to the dishonor of His Name. (Romans 8:12-13) (Galatians 5:16-25) (Ephesians 4:22-24) (Colossians 3:1-10) (1 Peter 1:14-16) (1 John3:5-9)

6.) We believe in the existence of the Devil, who is still working in the world today to destroy the souls of men. We believe that he and all of his angels and all who die without Christ as their Savior will one day eternally perish. (Revelation 12:1-12) (Luke 13:3)

7.) We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by God, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born to the Virgin Mary. (John 1:1, 14) (Luke 1:26-38)

8.) We believe that Jesus died for our sins as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the basis of His shed blood. (Romans 3:21-26) (Romans5:1)

9.) We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of Jesus Christ, His ascension into heaven, His present life as our High Priest, advocate and our soon coming King. (Hebrews 5:5-10;9:23-28) (Mark 16:1-6)
