Statement of Faith

  1. There is only one eternal, sovereign God who exists in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  2. God created the heavens and the earth and declared his creation to be good.
  3. All humans have sinned and live with a sin nature, which prevents them from rendering pleasing obedience to God on their own.
  4. All humans, though marred by sin, bear God’s image and are therefore worthy of dignity and honor.
  5. Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin and was both fully God and fully man.
  6. Jesus lived a sinless life, taught about the kingdom of God and how God wants us to live in this life. He died on the cross for the sins of the world, was raised from the dead by the power of the Spirit, and lives today at the right hand of the Father.
  7. If anyone desires the forgiveness of their sins, they must repent of their sins, believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and they will be forgiven.
  8. All those who are truly born again will seek to live out the teachings of Jesus, summarized by the two greatest commands: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind" and "Love your neighbor as yourself."
  9. Jesus is coming one day to usher in his final and perfect kingdom on earth. On that day he will judge the living and the dead. All those who believe and obey Jesus will live forever with him in the new heavens and new earth. All those who don’t believe in Jesus will face an irreversible punishment for their sin and rejection of God.
  10. The Bible is inspired by God and is therefore our ultimate and final authority for all matters of faith and practice.
