Statement of Faith

 

The Bible:

The Bible is the inspired Word of God written by holy men of God as they “were moved by the Holy Spirit”. All scripture is, therefore, without error and is the ultimate authority for our faith, given for our practical instruction. 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21

 

God:

God is the only true God. He is infinite, eternal and unchanging and is revealed to us in 3 Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God is Omniscient (all-knowing), Omnipresent (everywhere all the time) and Omnipotent (all-powerful). Hebrews 1:8; Malachi 3:6; Psalm 139:1-12; Matthew 28:18-19; Revelation 19:6

 

God the Father:

He is the loving Father over His entire created universe. He is a God of love but is also a God of judgment. Genesis 1:1; 1 John 4:8-10; Acts 17:30-31; Matthew 25:31-46

 

God the Son:

Although eternally God, He became man, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. He lived a sinless life (as being fully God), and died on the cross as the perfect sacrifice to pay the penalty for sin. He rose again from the dead and ascended into heaven where He sits to intercede on behalf of those who trust Him. John 1:1; Luke 1:34-35; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 3:24-26; 8:34

 

God the Holy Spirit:

The Spirit convicts the world of sin and indwells each true believer at the moment of salvation, sealing them unto the final day of redemption. He distributes spiritual gifts and sets each believer apart to a life of holiness to the extent that they yield themselves to Him. John 14:16-17; 16:7-13; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:13-14; 4:30; 5:18; 1 Corinthians 12:7-11,13

 

Creation:

All creation: the heavens, the earth and all life, was created directly by God. Man was made in the image and likeness of God Himself. Genesis 1:1; John 1:3; Colossians 1:16-17

 

Man:

Although created perfect and innocent, man fell through the sin of disobedience and as a result, all men are corrupted by sin. Unless a person is born again He will not see the kingdom of God and will instead face the righteous wrath and judgment of a Holy God. Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:10,23; John 3:3,7

 

Atonement for Sin:

The Lord Jesus Christ died in the sinners place to atone for sin and rose again in order that all who trust in Him might have eternal life. It is the responsibility of each person to repent of their sin and rebellion against God, acknowledging their sinfulness and turning to Christ as their only hope of redemption. By placing their faith in Him, they receive the gift of eternal salvation which cannot be taken away from them. John 3:16; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; Romans 8:9-11; Luke 13:3; Romans 10:9-11; John 5:24; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 John 5:11-13

 

The Christian Walk:

The believer is to live a life of holiness, not after the desires of the flesh but in the power of the Holy Spirit. The believer is to gather consistently with a local church which follows the ordinances given in the New Testament. Romans 6:11-14; 8:2,4, 12-13; Galatians 5:16-23; Ephesians 4:22-24; Matthew 28:18-20; 1 Peter 3:21; Romans 6:1-4

 

The Great Commission:

Until the return of Christ, each believer is responsible and privileged to minister to the needy world around them and to equip and encourage other believers in Christ. Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15; Acts 20:32 Ephesians 4:11-13; Colossians 2:6-8

Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name.
Psalm 86:11
