Statement of Faith
…that the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God (II Timothy 3:15, II Peter 1:21).
…that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30).
…in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9); His bodily resurrection (John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).
…that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation; that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious shed blood of Christ; and that by God’s grace through faith alone we are saved (John 3:16-19, John 5:24, Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5).
…in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation (John 5:28-29).
…in the baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.
…in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life (Romans 8:13-14, I Corinthians 3:16, I Corinthians 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30, Ephesians 5:18).
…in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, I Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:27-28).
