A brief explanation of
our statement of faith
All Scripture is God's Word and is totally true and trustworthy.
God's Word is a testimony for Christ, who is the focus of
There is one and only living God. God exists as the Trinity-God
the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God
the Father exists as a providential care of the universe.
God the Son is the incarnate presence of God who
was physically among us. Christ was born of a virgin, crucified
on the cross, dead and buried for 3 days, and rose again
to life. God the Holy Spirit is God's presence among
us now who points us to Christ and Salvation.
Man is the special creation of God, made in his own image.
By his free choice, man sinned against God and brought sin
into the human race. All people sin and have fallen short
of God's perfect Glory.
Salvation is God's gift to us, by grace. Salvation is found
only through a relationship with Jesus Christ. There is
a point of salvation in an individual's life when "new
birth" happens. Throughout our life salvation prods
us to continue to become more like Christ. God's reward
for salvation is to spend eternity in His presence in Heaven.
A New Testament Church is a group of believers, committed
to Christ. Each congregation operates under the Lordship
of Christ through a democratic process.
