Statement of Faith
We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to us by grace and received by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
(Eph. 1:7, 2:8–10; John 1:12; 1 Peter 1:18–19)
We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the verbally inspired word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible and God–breathed.
(2 Tim. 3:16, 17; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; Matt. 5:18; John 16:12,13)
We believe in one true God, creator of all things. Eternal, infinite in power, knowledge, wisdom, love and goodness. Perfect in holiness and unity, existing in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(John 17:3, Rev. 4:11, Deut. 32:4, Mark 12:29)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man.
(John 1:1, 2, 14; Luke 1:35)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice, and that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead.
(Rom. 3:24; 1 Peter 2:24; Eph. 1:7; 1 Peter 1:3–5)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God.
(Acts 1:9, 10; Heb. 7:25, 9:24; Rom. 8:34; 1 John 2:1–2)
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who among His various ministries convicts, regenerates, sanctifies, guides, heals, and empowers all believers through His continued indwelling and being upon them in power.
(1 Cor 12:4-11, Gal 5:16-23, Titus 3:5)
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that through Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God.
(Gen. 1:26, 27; Rom. 3:22, 23, 5:12; Eph. 2:1–3, 12)
We believe Jesus Christ will judge the living and the dead, those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
(Matthew 25:31-46, 2 Cor. 5:9-11)
"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendour."
