Statement of Faith

WE BELIEVE in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, that He lived a sinless life, that He died for each individual sinner, and He rose on the third day and ascended into heaven. (Matt. 1:23; Heb. 4:15  1 Cor. 15:1-4)

in salvation through the shed blood of Jesus Christ alone.  All who receive Jesus as Lord and Savior are born-again (new creations) and will live forever with God.  (Col. 1:14; Romans 3:21-26;  John 3:3,7;  2 Cor. 5:17;  
Eph. 2:6,7)

WE BELIEVE in the Trinity.  One God, existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  (Gen. 1:1-3; John 1:1-4;  Acts 5:1-4)

WE BELIEVE in the divine inspiration, inerrancy, and infallibility of the 66 books of the Bible, which is the Word of God, and the only Authority for the Church. (2 Tim. 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21)

in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit upon salvation, and the supernatural gifts of the Spirit that He, as Sovereign God, distributes to all born-again believers. (Romans 8:9; 1 Cor. 12:1-7)

in the eternal blessedness in the presence of God for the believer, and the eternal damnation of  the lost.  (John 3:35,36;  5:28,29;  Rev. 21:1-8)

God is love, and His love was shown perfectly in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  (1 John 4:8;  Heb. 1:1-3;  John 10:30; 14:7-11)

God is seeking worshipers to worship Him in spirit and in truth, and in His presence is fullness of joy.  (John 4:23,24;  Psalm 16:11)

WE BELIEVE Jesus will return to the Earth to end the Great Tribulation, and will rule from the nation of Israel, and restore the Jews into their own land in fulfillment of God’s Word.  (Rev. 19:11-21; Luke 1:31-33;  Matt. 24:29-31;  Ezek. 36:17-38)

in the pre-tribulation appearance of the Lord Jesus Christ for the rapture of His Church.  (1 Thess. 4:13-18; 1:10; 5:9)
