Statement of Faith

God: God is One God who exists in three persons—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is all-knowing, all-powerful, all-present, and all-loving. God is the creator of all things and all things belong to Him.

Jesus: Jesus is God, who became a person through the beautiful and mysterious conception by the Holy Spirit. He is forever both fully God and fully man. Jesus lived a sinless life that culminated in his voluntary death on a cross, which in turn satisfied God’s divine justice and made salvation available to all who trust in Christ alone. Three days later, Jesus rose from the dead in his glorified body and ascended to heaven where he sits at God’s right hand, serving as a mediator between God and man.

Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit reveals Christ to the world. He convicts sinners and draws them into a new life with Jesus. From the moment of life through Christ, the Holy Spirit dwells within the new believer until the day of redemption.

Salvation: Although people are sinful and therefore separated from God, God still loves us and through His eternal grace has offered us a plan of redemption through Jesus. God offers His free gift of salvation to everyone who believes that Jesus died and rose from the dead and who accept Him as their savior. Salvation through Jesus is wholly and completely a free gift and is not in any way obtained through the work or good behavior of people.

The Bible: The Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, is the verbally inspired word of God, his truth, his heart, and his purpose for the world. It is the final authority for faith and practice, inerrant in the original writings, infallible, and God-breathed.
