Statement of Faith
1. The Bible:
The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings, and complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life. (2Tim. 3:15-17; I Pt. 1:23-25; Heb. 4:12).
There is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three Manifestations (Trinity): Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All are co-equal and co-eternal (Mt. 28:19, I Jn. 1:1, 14, 2 Cor. 13:14,Col. 1:15-17, Heb. 1:3 John 15:26-27).
3. Jesus Christ:
Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross, the complete and final sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate. (Mt. 1:20, Isa.9: 6, Lk. 1:35, Jn. 17:5 & 8, Phil. 2:6-8, I Pt. 2:24, 3:18, Rm. 3:24-25, I Jn 2:2, Col. 1:20, 2 Cor. 5:18, Jn 19:38-42, Rm. 10:9, Acts 1:9, Jn 21:19, Rm. 8:34)
4. The Holy Spirit:
The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and during this age, to convict men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service. The evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. The full consummation of the Baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and by the subsequent manifestation of spiritual power in public testimony and service (Acts 1:8, 2:4, 10:44-46, 19:2,6).
Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained. (Gen. 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Rom. 5:12-21).
Salvation: The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.
7. Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
On the cross Jesus Christ became sin and sickness providing both salvation and healing for all mankind (Ps. 103:3). This salvation comes by believing in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and confessing with your mouth, Jesus as Lord (Rom. 3:24, 10:8-10; Eph. 2:8).
8. The inward evidence, to the believer, is the direct witness of the Spirit (Rom. 8:16).
The inward evidence, to the believer, is the direct witness of the Spirit (Rom. 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of true holiness and love (I Jn. 3:23; Jn. 13:35).
9. Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and not by human works
However our works are evidence of our faith and will determine our rewards in eternity (Rom. 10:9-10, 14:10-12; II Cor. 5:10; Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 3:5-7; James 2:18).
10. The Return of Jesus Christ:
The personal, premillenial, and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ is our hope and has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer. (Rm. 11:25, 27; 2Thess. 1:7; Rev. 19:11-16, 20:1-7).
