Statement of Faith

What We Believe

WE BELIEVE the Holy Bible to be the infallible, authoritative Word of God, that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were written by human authors, but inerrant in the original writings as it was under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.

WE BELIEVE that God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe, and that there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who are co-equal.

WE BELIEVE in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is the son of God and is co-equal with the Father. We believe in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the God the Father, and in His personal return to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

WE BELIEVE that man was created in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character, and that man is the supreme object of God's creation. We believe that man sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature.

WE BELIEVE that salvation is a gift from God to man, and that only by believing, accepting and trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness for our sins can we be saved from sin's penalty. Eternal life begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ into our life by faith.

WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God, Who lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation, and provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in living a godly life.

WE BELIEVE we were created to exist forever, and that we will exist eternally separated from God by sin in Hell, or in union with God in Heaven through forgiveness and salvation through Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of Christian believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
