Our 11 Statements of Faith:

    1. We believe in the original writings of the Old and New Testament Scriptures to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
    2. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  (Deuteronomy 6:4; Hebrews 1:3; John 14:26; John 10:30; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 28:19)
    3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, true God and true man. (Colossians 2:9; Luke 1:35; Matthew 1:18)
    4. We believe in Jesus’ sinless life, His miracles, that He died for our sins according to the Scriptures, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father to be our mediator and in His personal return bodily and visibly to establish His kingdom.  (2 Corinthians 5:21; John 10:38; Acts 2:22-24: I Corinthians 15:3-4; Luke 24:50-51; I Timothy 2:5; John 14:1-4)
    5. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the saved and the everlasting separation from God of the unsaved.  (Matthew 25:31-33; Revelation 20:11-15)
    6. We believe that salvation is indeed a gift from God.  We are saved through our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ—it is not through any human efforts but by God’s Grace.  (Ephesians 2:8-9)
    7. We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling and regenerating power the believer is enabled to live a Godly life.  (John 16:5-13: 2 Corinthians 1:21-22; Acts 1:4, 8; 2 Timothy 1:7)
    8. We believe that each believer, all who are saved, should demonstrate their faith in Jesus Christ by obediently following Him in the act of baptism, thereby signifying Christ’s death, burial and resurrection.  (Acts 2:38-39; Romans 6:4-11; Galatians 3:27; 1 Peter 3:18-22)
    9. We believe that the Christian is not to be conformed to this present world but is transformed in such a way that Christ lives through the believer and that life will be pre-eminently characterized by a life of faith, truth, purity and love. (Galatians 2:17-21; John 17:13-19; Romans 12:1-2; Matthew 22:37-40)
    10. We believe the Church, ordained by God, is commissioned by Him to evangelize the world by every believer being a witness to the unsaved, proclaiming Jesus Christ as Lord and by living as His servants among all men. (Matt. 28:18-20; Ephesians 4:11-17; Colossians 1:24-27; 2 Timothy 3:16-17
    11. We believe that each believer, all who are saved, should demonstrate their faith in Jesus Christ by serving faithfully in the body, knowing that each believer will give an account of himself to God.  (Ephesians 2:10; Ephesians 4:11-12; James 2:14-20; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Romans 14:10-12; Matthew 25:14-30; 1 Corinthians 3:10-15)
