Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God. The Bible is without error in whole and in part. “ All scripture is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness.”
2 Timothy 3:16
We also believe in the Trinity (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit), and that Jesus Christ was God come in human flesh, being fully God and fully man, except without sin.
John 1:1, Philippians 2:6-8, 1 John 3:5
Sin has separated all people from God. That relationship is restored by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ. God in His mercy saves us by Jesus Christ’s atoning sacrifice and resurrection.
Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9
Salvation is offered as a free gift to the sinner. This gift must be individually responded to in faith, not trusting in any personal works whatsoever, but in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone. Jesus Christ’s death paid the penalty for our sin.
Romans 6:23, Acts 16:30-31, Titus 3:5, 1 Corinthians 15:3, Romans 5:6-8
We must personally receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord: “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believed in His name.”
John 1:12, Revelation 3:20
Christians should seek to be Christ-like disciples who accept the grace of God to live by means of Divine Love toward God and others. This Divine Love is poured out into our hearts by the Holy Spirit and empowers us to conform in attitude and actions to the will of God.
Romans 5:5, Philippians 2:12-13
We believe Christians should produce good works as a result of salvation and seek to please God out of love for Him by obeying His commands and renouncing unholy live-styles and conduct.
We believe all Christians should seek to grow in grace – the ability to do the will of God.
Matthew 7:21, 2 Peter 3:18
