Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, inerrant, infallible and authoritative Word of God.
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, the Son Jesus and the
Holy Spirit. He is an intelligent, spiritual and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver
and Ruler of the universe.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His
miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on a cross, in His bodily
resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power
We believe that salvation is the gift of God through faith in Jesus Christ by grace bestowed
on those who call upon His name. Salvation is neither deserved nor earned but freely given to
anyone who will turn from one’s sin and call upon Jesus Christ to be his or her Savior.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by indwelling every born-again believer,
enabling him or her to live a godly life.
We believe it is the responsibility of every Christian to share the good news of Jesus Christ to
unbelievers through the power of the Holy Spirit.
