STATEMENT OF FAITH
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and one God.
About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days, demonstrating His power over sin and death. He ascended into Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.
About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with God the Father and God the Son. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer one or more spiritual gifts when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily.
About the Bible
The Bible is God’s Word to us. Human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit wrote it. It is the supreme source of Truth for Christian faith and practice (what we believe and how we are to live). Because God inspired it, it is the Truth without any mixture of error.
About Human Beings
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like im in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation, created by Him for fellowship and ultimately to reign! Sin has marred our lives, interrupting God’s desire for us. Disobedience and an attitude of active or passive rebellion separates people from God, causing many problems in life and barring them from His presence if they remain separated.
Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved.
