What We Believe

 

STATEMENT OF FAITH

 

We believe in one living and true God who is self-existent, eternal, and infinite, who has revealed himself a Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the same in essence though distinct in personality. (Deut. 6:4; Isa. 45:21,22; Matt. 11:25; Matt. 28:19; John 10:30; Acts 5:3,4; I Tim. 3:16; Heb. 1:8,9; I Peter 1:2; Jude 20,21)

 

We believe in God the Father, Creator of heaven and earth, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (Deut. 6:4; Isa. 45:21,22; Jer. 10:10; John 1:1-13; Rom. 9:5)

 

We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, sinless in His life, making atonement for the sins of the world by His blood and death on the cross. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His high priestly intercession for His own, and His personal, visible return to the world according to His promise. (Matt. 1:23; Luke 1:35, Isa. 53:5; Eph. 1:7; John 1:12)

 

We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from God to convict the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and comfort those who believe in Jesus Christ. (John 3:5,6; John 16:8; Acts 2:33; Acts 4:31; I Pet. 1:2; I Cor. 2:11)

 

We believe that the Bible is God's Word, that it was written by men divinely and uniquely inspired, that it is absolutely trustworthy, and has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (II Tim. 3:16,17; II Pet. 1:20; Luke 24:44; John 5:39; Rom. 15:4)

 

We believe that all men by nature and by choice are sinners, but that God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. (Gen. 1:27,31; 2:16,17; 3:1-6; Rom. 5:19; Eph. 2:1-3; Rom. 3:19; John 3:16)

 

We believe therefore, that those who accept Christ as Lord and Savior shall rejoice forever in God's presence, and those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior shall be forever separated from God. (Rom. 14:10; I Cor. 3:11-15; I John 2:28; Luke 16:22-31; Heb. 2:2-4)

 

We believe that baptism is a believer's symbolic identification with Christ's death, burial, and resurrection. (Rom. 6:3-7; Col. 2:9-12)

 

We believe that the ordinance of the Lord's Supper symbolically reminds the believer of Christ's physical sacrifice and the need for our personal acceptance of that fact. The Lord commanded believers to remember Him in this

fashion until He comes again. (I Cor. 11:23-29; Matt. 26:26-29; Luke 22:19,20; I Cor. 10:16)

 

Therefore, we will strive to apply Biblical principles to ourselves in order to bring glory to Jesus Christ and point others to Him. Our lives are to be consistent examples of authentic Christianity emulating the character of Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Eph. 4:11-16; I John 1:6-7; Gal. 5:22-23; Eph. 5:15-21; II Pet. 1:5-8; I Pet. 4:7-10; Gal. 2:20; Rom. 12:1-2; Col. 3:17; I Cor. 10:31)
