DECLARATION OF FAITH

 

We believe...

that God has revealed Himself through His inspired Word, the Bible; that the Bible is inspired verbally—equally in every word—and without error in the original writings that have been preserved in content by God from the time of authorship to this day; that the Scriptures, God’s revelation to men, were completed with the completion of the New Testament and that God is not giving new or additional revelational truth today; that the Bible is the supreme and final authority in objective truth and practical living.

We believe...

that Christ preexisted, came into the world by virgin birth, died vicariously for our sins, rose from the dead, was witnessed by men, and is physically coming again to establish His Kingdom.

We believe...

that man is totally depraved and hopeless without the grace of God through faith in Jesus’ finished work at Calvary; that by submitting to the Holy Spirit’s ministry, the believer grows in the grace and knowledge of the Lord and “is being transformed into the image/likeness of Christ”.

We believe...

that God is triune, omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, holy, loving, just, and totally sovereign in the affairs of the universe; that He is the author of His own eternal plan and purpose whereby, for His glory, He has foreordained whatsoever comes to pass.

We believe...

that the Holy Spirit is personally present to empower, encourage, and enlighten the saints; that the Holy Spirit uses Biblical truth as His tool to convict the world of sin.

We believe...

that the church is the family of God on earth and has many local expressions (fellowships); that it enjoys two ordinances—believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

We believe...

that heaven and hell are both realities; that the future will be blissful for the saved and horrible for the lost.
