Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son and Holy  Spirit (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30).

We  believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11);  His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9);  His resurrection (John 11:25; I Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of  the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).

We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith are we saved  (John 3:16-21, 5:24; Romans 3:23, 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5)

We  believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto  the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29).

We  believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12:12-12; Galatians 3:26-28).

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14; I Corinthians 3:16; 16:19-20; Ephesians 4:30; 5:18).
