Statement of Faith

We believe the scripture are infallible, inerrant and the sole authority for all matters of faith, salvation and life.
(2 Timothy 3:14-17, 1 Thessalonians 2:13)

We believe in one God existing in three Persons:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(Matthew 28:19, John 15:26)

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, he was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, fully God and fully Man. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins then arose from the dead and ascended into heaven, where He now is our High Priest and Advocate.
(Luke 1:26-35; John 1:14-18; Isaiah 7:14; 9:6, 53, Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 1:35; 1 Corinthians 15:20-23; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Peter 3:22; 1 John 2:1)

We believe that man was made in the image of God but fell into sin and his total spiritual depravity is unable to attain God’s righteousness. Only the blood of Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection provides the only way to salvation and a right relationship with God. All who believe in him are born of the Holy Spirit and become children of God.
(Genesis 1:24-27, Romans 5:12, 18, 8:1-16)

We believe the work of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Jesus Christ, convict men, guide, instruct and empower the believer, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a real experience at or subsequent to salvation, with the Scriptural evidence, namely, speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.
(John 7:38-39; 14:16-17; 15:26; 16:13-14, Acts 2:1-4; 8:14-17; 10:44-46)

We believe in the Spirit-filled life for holiness and in the active operation of the Gifts of the Spirit
(Ephesians 5:18; 2 Corinthians 6:14; 7:1, 1 Corinthians 12:7-10, 28-30, Romans 12:6-8, Ephesians 4:11-13, 1 Peter 4:10-11)

We believe that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper should be observed by the church. However, they are not a means to attain salvation.
(Matthew 3:15-16; 28:19; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

We believe in the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and that this “Blessed Coming Hope” impacts the personal life, faith and obedience of each believer.
(Revelation 20:4-6; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18)
