What We Believe

Statement of Belief
 We believe in:

1. The one true and living God who eternally exists in three persons in unity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

2. The Divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scripture.

3. The original perfection of creation; the inherent corruptness of humanity through the Fall; the  necessity of repentance and regeneration by grace and through faith in Christ alone, and the eternal separation from God of the finally unrepentant.

4. The virgin Birth, sinless life atoning death, triumphant Resurrection, ascension and continuing  intercession of our Lord Jesus Christ, His Second Coming, and eternal Kingdom reign.

5. The justification and sanctification of believers through the finished work of Christ, their security  as they remain in Him, and their future resurrection in an incorruptible body.

6. The Sacrament of Baptism by immersion, and of the Lord's Supper.

7. The baptism of the Holy Spirit for believers with supernatural signs, empowering the Church for its  mission in the world.

8. The gifts of the Holy Spirit for the building up of the Church and ministry to the world.

9. Christ's leadership of the Church through the ascension ministries of apostles, prophets, evangelists,  pastors and teachers, for the unity, maturity and growth of the Church.

10. The privilege and responsibility of wise stewardship of all that God has given, including the practice  of tithing to the local church.

11. Marriage is ordained by God in scripture for the exclusive union between one man and one woman, for their mutual help and comfort.
