OUR FAITH STATEMENT
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God
and that men were DIRECTED by the HOLY Spirit to write the words
of Scripture. Therefore, the Bible is without error.
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons
(Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). We believe that Jesus Christ is
the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh
to reveal God to man and to become the Savior of the lost world.
We believe that man was created in the image of God
to have fellowship with Him, but became alienated from that
relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is totally
incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by his own effort.
We believe that the shed blood AND DEATH of Jesus Christ on the cross
provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, salvation
only occurs when a person places his faith in the death and
resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for his sin.
We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself.
By obedience to the Word and daily yielding to the Spirit,
every believer will mature and become conformed to the image of Christ.
We believe that the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus Christ
is the Head. The members are those who have trusted by faith the
finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify
God by loving Him and by making Him known to a lost world.
