Statement of Faith

 

Our overarching belief is to love the one true all-powerful God above all else, love yourself, then faithfully love and serve others (Matthew 22:36-40). This guiding principle leads us in our love and ministry to any person that God may put in our path. The statements that follow are all in alignment with this belief:

 

  • We believe that the Bible is the only, inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God  (2 Tim. 3:16).  

  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (John 14:11, 16; 15:26).

  • We believe in the Deity and humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious death and atonement through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory (John 1:1, 14; Luke 1:26-31; 2 Cor. 5:21; John 4:10-11; Rom. 3:25, 26; Luke 24:6, 7; Eph. 1:20, 21; Acts 1:10,11). 

  • We believe that people are sinful and lost, saved by faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ, and regenerated by the Holy Spirit (Titus 3:5, 6; Eph. 2:8,9).

  • We believe in the continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life (Gal 5: 16, 25).

  • We believe in the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life eternal (Eph. 1:7; John 11:25; 1 John 5:11,12).

  • We believe that salvation is a gift of God’s grace through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross (Eph. 2:8). 

  • We believe that good works are results of salvation, not requirements for salvation (Eph. 2-10).

  • Due to the sufficiency and perfection of Christ’s sacrifice, all who have received Christ as Savior are eternally secure, kept by God’s power and sealed in Christ forever (John 3:15-16).

  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ, and the evidence of that unity being shown by how we love one another (1 Cor. 12: 27; Eph. 4:1-6).

  • We believe that women are created in the image of God, uniquely gifted and empowered by the Holy Spirit to serve and build up the body of Christ (Gen. 1:27; 1 Cor. 12:7; 1 Pet. 4:10).

  • We believe that God created mankind in His image: man and woman, sexually different, but with equal personal dignity (Gen. 1:26-28, Rom. 1:26-32, 1 Cor. 6:9-11).

  • We believe in the sanctity of life and that God has ordained all the days of the person’s life before they were born (Psa. 139: 13, 14, 16).
