Statement of Faith

What we believe (Part 1)
● We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit
and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of
God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and
practice.
● We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in
three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
● We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from
God’s displeasure, except by His mercy.

What we believe (Part 2)

● We believe that salvation is by God alone, as He sovereignly chooses those He will save. We
believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen
faith.
● We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and
sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.
● We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and
wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.
● We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His
people unto Himself.
● We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship
of Jesus Christ.

What we believe (Part 3)

● We believe God’s design for sexual intimacy is to be expressed only within the context

of marriage. God instituted marriage between one natural-born man and one natural-
born woman as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society.

For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one natural-born
man and one natural-born woman.
● We believe that God created all human beings in His image. Therefore, we believe that
human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; that we must honor the physical
and spiritual needs of all people; following Christ’s example, we believe that every
person should be treated with love, dignity and respect.

What we believe (Part 4)

● We believe that Baptism is the public declaration of having accepted Jesus Christ as
your personal Savior. Baptism is not a means of salvation but shows the world that one
has accepted Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior. And while baptism is not required for
salvation, it is a biblical command and demonstrates one’s love and obedience to
Christ.
● We believe that Communion (the Lord’s Supper), is an ordinance given to all believers
by Jesus Christ to remember his sacrifice for us and to symbolize the new covenant.
The elements of the bread and the cup are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed
blood. Communion is not a means of salvation. Rather, it is a testament of a believer’s
faith in the atoning work of the cross.
