Statement of Faith

We believe that the Holy Bible consisting of sixty-six books including the Old Testament and the New Testament is the only inspired, inerrant, and infallible word of God and is a revelation from God to Man, concerning the will of God in all things necessary to our faith, conduct and salvation and is the supreme authority in matters of faith and practice.

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

We believe that God, the Son took the form of a man named Jesus, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of virgin Mary and is true God and true man.

We believe that Jesus is sinless and He died for the sins of Humanity, according to the scriptures as a vicarious and substitutionary atoning death, and that all who believe in Him are justified by His Blood.

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His Ascension into heaven and in his present life for us as High priest, intercessor, and Advocate, and in the pre-millennial advent of our, Lord Jesus Christ to set up in the earth a kingdom in which He shall reign in righteousness and peace.

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who is God and giver of life and proceeds from the father and the son and who possesses all the distinctively divine attributes. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He indwells, regenerates, seals, and sets apart the believer of a holy life.

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but fell by voluntary transgression and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death which is the separation from God, and that all human beings are born with sinful nature.

We believe that man’s only hope of redemption and salvation is in Jesus Christ; that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, that repentance is commanded of God for all, and is necessary for forgiveness of sin; that salvation, new birth and justification are wrought by the grace of God, and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and the renewing work of the Holy Ghost.

We believe that the church in its invisible form is one, holy, universal, the body and bride of Christ, and all who are born again are the members and they bear Jesus’ witness in this world.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the future, the eternal blessedness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost.
