Statement of Faith
We believe in one God eternally existing in one essence, yet three co-equal persons, the Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by God, conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born to Mary while she was still a virgin.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, who convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He is the life of the believer, and he empowers the preaching and teaching of the gospel.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice of atonement according to the Scriptures, and that all who believe in him are justified on the basis of his shed blood.
We believe in the physical resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, his literal ascension into Heaven, and his present life there as high priest and advocate for us.
We believe in the blessed hope, which is the personal, visible, and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
We believe that all who receive Jesus Christ as Lord by faith are born again by the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God and heirs of eternal life.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting conscious suffering of the lost in Hell, and the fellowship of the saved in the new creation.
We believe in the existence of a personal devil, who is still working in the world to destroy the souls of men, and that he, all his angels, and all who do not receive Christ as their Lord and Savior will eternally perish in the lake of fire.
We believe in the church, whose mission it is to preach the Gospel and equip believers for ministry, all of its endeavors being guided by multiple leadership and supported by the wise stewardship of God’s people.
We believe in the ordinances of the church given by our Lord, those being Baptism and the Lord’s Table (Communion).
We believe that the foregoing are Bible doctrines, therefore, we stand firm upon this Confession of Faith.
