Statement of Faith
We believe there is one God who is
infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son
and Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ to be true God and in his
incarnation to have been true man. He was born of the Virgin Mary,
conceived by the Holy Spirit, died for our sins and was raised from the
dead for our justification. He is now seated at the right hand of God
in majesty, making intercession as our High Priest. He will come again
in glory to establish His kingdom of righteousness and peace.
We believe the Old and New
Testaments to be the infallible Word of God, inerrant as originally
given, directly inspired by God and the complete and sufficient
revelation of His will for man's salvation and conduct.
We believe man was originally
created in the image of God. Through disobedience, self-centeredness,
and sin he incurred both physical and spiritual death. Thus, all are
now born with a sinful nature, separated from God and can be saved only
through the atoning work of Jesus Christ. All who are impenitent and
unbelieving will be lost in a Christless eternity of conscious torment
in hell; for those who believe eternity will be spent in God's
presence, in His distinct joy and bliss.
We believe the church
consists of all those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as Lord and
Savior. They join together for worship, prayer, fellowship,
proclamation of the Gospel and observance of the ordinances of Baptism
and the Lord's Supper.
We believe in the Second
Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ as both personal and visible. This is
our blessed hope.
We believe in the Great
Commission to proclaim the Gospel of our Lord to the uttermost parts of
the earth, thus giving man the Word of God in truth and also hastening
the return of Christ.
We believe in the local
Christian church as the primary and sufficient vehicle initiated and
founded by God on the power of the Holy Spirit to nurture new believers
in faith, disciple mature believers, and evangelize the lost.
Goals in relation to our
faith: This ministry is in the
primary service of the local church, uniting local church bodies to
accomplish evangelism and elevate civic virtue in the face of
corrupting social influences in ways unavailable when we stand
