Statement of Faith

We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God, free from error in the original autographs and the final authority in matters of life and faith. The sixty-six books of the Protestant Canon contain God’s written revelation of himself and describe our Human Condition and need for a Savior. There is no translation of the Bible that is superior to others, read whatever is easier for you to understand. Read it daily if possible. If you have any questions, ask us here or email E.

We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons — Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Together they dwell in a tri-unity of love. We believe that God created the heavens and the earth. We believe in Jesus Christ the Son, begotten of the Father who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus was fully God and fully man. For us and our salvation, he became incarnate in order that he may reconcile us to the Father. His life and ministry set an example that we should all follow. His vicarious death on the cross paid the price, allowing us to come before a Holy God. His resurrection on the third day proved that he was God the Son, who conquered death and chaos. By his power, he declared our flaw of sin to be forgiven. Jesus ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father. We believe in the Holy Spirit who proceeds from the Father and the Son. It is by the power of the Holy Spirit that we are regenerated and justified by Christ. The spirit indwells each believer and works in each believer’s life to conform him/her to Christ. The Holy Spirit also dispenses to each and every believe a unique set of gifts for the purpose of Glorifying the Father and the Work of the Son. We believe that the purpose of these spiritual gifts should edify and glorify God, they are not to be used as spectacle or abused for profit.

Sin is our flaw, it’s what makes us mortal but it’s also responsible for our various imperfections. These imperfections can be physical and spiritual. It’s responsible for the evil that we do as people and, as a result, disqualifies us to be present with a Holy God. Through the finished work of Jesus Christ and the presence of the Holy Spirit, we are constantly transformed each day provided that we pray and work toward living the example that Christ lived for us. This is not works salvation, this is the responsibility we have as believers. We are the light of the world and the salt of the earth.

Once we embrace Christ as being Lord through faith, we begin a journey by learning more about Christ and his ministry. We are not only asked share the Gospel of Life but we are asked to live it. We are to love all human beings, pray for one another, help and give whenever we are able. We must seek a community of fellow believers but we must also assist one another wherever and whenever possible. The church isn’t some building made my man, it is wherever two or more are gathered to serve and to share that Gospel.
