Statement of Faith

  

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God (II Timothy 3:15-17) and our guidebook for living. It gives us a true history of the creation of the heavens, the earth, and of mankind. It tells us, correctly, of events to come regarding the heavens, earth, and the destiny of man. There is no salvation outside of that which is contained in its pages.

We believe in One God (Deuteronomy 6:4: Mark 12:29), the creator and sustainer of all things, who manifested Himself as the Father in creation, the Son in redemption, and the Holy Spirit (indwelling Spirit) in regeneration in the New Testament (I Timothy 3:16).

We believe that because of the sin of Adam and Eve, all mankind is born in a fallen state and is in need of a Savior (Romans 3:23-25; 5:12; 6:23).

We believe the response to the gospel of Jesus Christ is the new birth stated in the book of Acts, chapter 2, verses 38 and 39, and is found woven and confirmed throughout the Bible. Salvation consists of deliverance from sin through the blood of Jesus Christ.

We believe God is Holy and He requires us to pursue holiness (separation) unto Him. Leviticus 19:2 “…you shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy.” I Peter 2:9, II Corinthians 7:1.We believe in worship and fellowship with those of like precious faith through the local church. It is through the ministry of the local assembly that believers are strengthened in their faith and find opportunity to serve others. Matthew 18:20; Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10.
