Statement of Faith

Authority of the Bible

We believe the entire Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God. All cures, keys, answers, and solutions needed for a victorious life can be discovered within the Bible. For this reason, we practice and encourage daily exposure to and intake of the Bible (II Timothy 3:16-17; Romans 15:4; II Peter 1:19-21).


Role of God

We believe in one true God, Creator of all things, who eternally exists as three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 28:19; John 14:16-18; Philippians 2:5-8).


The Person of Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ is the union of God and man. He is fully God who became man, conceived of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, revealing to man the love and nature of God the Father. He died on the cross as the sacrifice for the sins of all men. He rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, is presently seated at the right hand of the Father, and will one day return for His family. We believe that Jesus Christ our Lord is the only access which humanity has to God the Father (John 1:1-3; Matthew 1:20-23; Hebrews 4:14-15; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Thessalonians 5:1-5; I Timothy 2:5-6).


Salvation

We believe salvation is a free gift, given to each person who acknowledges and confesses that Jesus rose from the dead. It is by this that one enters into the family of God, releasing them from sin, and granting them eternal life (Acts 15:11; Romans 5:8-9; Romans 10:9-11).


Spirit-led Living

We believe the best way possible to live an effective Christian life is to have God’s power released in our daily living. This is the result of the baptism of the Holy Spirit: a spirit-filled life. So we seek to practice a daily dependence on the Holy Spirit to guide, teach, and empower us in every area of life (Romans 8:14-15; Galatians 5:16; John 15:26-27; John 16:13-14).


Stewardship

We believe God is the only Creator and owner. He has assigned us as managers of our time, talents, and treasures. We recognize that the principle of stewardship in the Bible is a lifestyle for Christians. For this reason, we practice tithing, giving the first 10 percent of our income and offerings. Stewardship teaches us to be grateful for who God is, what He has done, and what He will continually do for us (Luke 6:38; II Corinthians 9:6; I Timothy 6:18-19).


Telling Others about Jesus

We believe that every Christian has the responsibility of telling others about their relationship with Jesus Christ. This is accomplished by living as a Christian example, building relationships, and using every opportunity to share the excitement about who Jesus is with others (Mark 16:15; Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8).
