Our Beliefs

What we Believe

Our Statement of Faith

God

We believe in One infinite and personal God, who eternally exists as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We believe that God is the Creator, Sustainer, Savior and Judge. While acknowledging the unity of the Godhead, we believe the Father planned salvation, the Son accomplished salvation and the Holy Spirit applies salvation.

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ is the unique God-Man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross to make atonement for our sins, rose bodily from the dead, and ascended to the Father’s right hand. We believe that Jesus intercedes for believers as their High Priest and that He will soon return as the reigning King.

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts men of their need for salvation, causes men to be born again spiritually, permanently indwells believers, and that He is the source of power and fruitfulness in living the Christian life.

Bible

We believe the Bible, consisting of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired, authoritative and inerrant Word of God. It is the final rule for faith and practice.

  • 2 Peter 1:20-21
  • John 8:30-31
  • Hebrews 4:12

Man

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but because of Adam’s sin, all men are now sinners by nature and by choice, and are in need of salvation. We believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.

  • Romans 5:12-21
  • Romans 3:21-26
  • Ephesians 2:8-9

Church

We believe that Jesus Christ is the head of the Church, which is His body, composed of all true believers who are to be the salt and light of the world. We believe that the Church exists to glorify God through worship, ministry, evangelism, fellowship, and discipleship. The mission of the Church is to fulfill the Great Commission.


Bible References:
  • Matthew 16:15-18
  • Ephesians 1:20-22
  • Matthew 22:36-40
  • Matthew 28:18-20

Second Coming

We believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. He will return bodily to earth to establish His Kingdom. Unbelievers will be judged and spend eternity separated from God in hell, and believers will be rewarded with eternal fellowship with God in heaven.

Our Theological Distinctives

Complementarian

God has equally created and poured out His Spirit on both men and women. By His design, He has planned that men and women have distinct, complementary roles in the home and Church.  For the Church, the gifts of the Spirit are given to each, yet their use is designed for specific roles. In this, the role of the elder has been reserved for qualified, spiritual men.

The Gifts of the Spirit

The gifts of the Spirit are essential for the vitality of the church. Thus, the promise of the Spirit and His gifts are as true today as they were for the natal church in the New Testament.

God’s Sovereignty and Man’s Responsibility

Biblical text presents the reality of God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility. While God is the initiator of salvation, drawing people unto Himself, salvation must be received by faith, as God holds humanity responsible for their decisions and actions.
