Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible and God-breathed.

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth in the flesh, His sinless life, His miracles, our redemption through His atoning death and shed blood, His bodily resurrection from the grave, His ascension into heaven, His present ministry of intercession and advocacy for the saved, and His personal return in power and glory.

We believe the Holy Spirit is a divine person, proceeding from the Father and the Son and is therefore eternal, and of the same essence, majesty, and glory with the Father and the Son. We believe, therefore, that the Holy Spirit is truly God.

We believe Salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. 

We believe in that “Blessed Hope”, the personal and imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ for His redeemed ones, and His subsequent return to earth with the saints to establish His kingdom. We believe in the bodily resurrection of all people, the saved to eternal life with God and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment.
