Statement of Faith

We believe in the only true God, the almighty Creator of all things,
existing eternally in three persons
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit full of love and glory.

We believe in Jesus Christ, fully human and fully divine,
who lived as a perfect example,
who assumed the judgment due sinners by dying in our place,
and who was bodily raised from the dead and ascended as Savior and Lord.

We believe in the unique divine inspiration,
entire trustworthiness and authority of the Bible.

We believe in the value and dignity of all people:
created in God’s image to live in love and holiness,
but alienated from God and each other because of our sin and guilt,
and justly subject to God’s wrath.

We believe in Justification by God’s grace to all who repent
and put their faith in Jesus Christ for salvation.

We believe in the indwelling presence and transforming power of the Holy Spirit,
who gives to all believers a new life and a new calling to fruitful service.

We believe in the unity of all believers in Jesus Christ,
manifest in worshiping, witnessing and
making disciples throughout the world.

We believe in the victorious reign and future personal return of Jesus Christ,
who will judge all people with justice and mercy,
giving over the unrepentant to eternal condemnation
but receiving the redeemed into eternal life.

To God be glory forever.
