Statement of Faith

Short version:

  1. We believe the Bible is the Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and inerrant in its original writings. The Bible is the revealed will of God for man, and is the infallible rule of faith and practice by which we must live.
  2. We believe that God is the Supreme uncreated being, infinite, perfect in all His attributes, one in essence, and eternally existing in three Persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - each equally deserving worship and obedience.
  3. We believe that God the Father is the Sovereign ruler over all things and must be exalted and obeyed.
  4. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is God the Son. He is equal to the Father in being and yet submissive to the Father in office.
  5. We believe that the Holy Spirit is God and works on behalf of the Father in glorifying the Son.
  6. We believe that God created man morally perfect, made up of both material and immaterial parts for God's glory and enjoyment.
  7. We believe that man sinned when both Adam and Eve disobeyed God's direct command in the Garden of Eden.
  8. We believe that due to Adam and Eve's disobedience, each person was born a sinner, spiritually dead, justly deserving at the end of life eternal condemnation by God and punishment in Hell.
  9. We believe that salvation is only by God's grace on the basis of the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, the merit of His shed blood, and not on the basis of human merit or works.
  10. We believe that God punished the Lord Jesus Christ for sins and that Jesus Christ died on behalf of sinners.
  11. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ physically died, was buried, came back to life on the third day, and returned to heaven.
  12. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, in the future, will return physically as the supreme judge and will bless the believers with an eternal home in heaven and send the unbelievers into eternal punishment in hell.
  13. We believe repentance of sinfulness and submission to Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour is necessary for eternal life.
  14. We believe loving service to God as He has directed in His Word is the responsibility of each member of the church.
  15. We believe the Holy Spirit enables and encourages Christians to live in a way that pleases God.
  16. We believe that Christians need to identify with Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour publicly through baptism as a believer.
  17. We believe God has established the local church as the representation of His universal body made up of all true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  18. We believe each Christian must be committed to worshiping God by living according to the apostles' doctrine, seeking Christian fellowship, participating in corporate communion, and by praying.
  19. We believe each Christian is to worship God through supporting the church and submitting to the elders' leadership as they diligently work at upholding Scriptures before God.
  20. We believe each Christian is to biblically minister to others who are in the local church according to the abilities God has given.
