AFFIRMATION OF FAITH
The Word of God
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious roles in the work of creation, providence, and redemption.
God the Father
We believe in God, the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. We believe that he concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of all people, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth.
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer who accepts Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher, and guide.
We believe that all people are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation. We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a multitude of believers in Jesus Christ. We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of giving the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world.
