Statement of Faith
It is our understanding that our Christian beliefs are acceptable to the main body of Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox denominations, as follows:
We believe the Holy Scriptures to be divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy; and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (See 2 Peter 1:20, 21; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; John 17:17; Matthew 5:17,18). We believe in One God, infinitely perfect, and eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (See Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Timothy 1:17; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).
We believe in our Lord Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His work of reconciliation, and His impending personal return in power and glory. (See Colossians 2:9; John 1:1; Galatians 4:4; Matthew 1:23; Hebrews 4:15; Acts 2:22,23; 1 Peter 3:18; Colossians 2:13,14: 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 John 1:7; 1 Corinthians 15:4; Mark 16: 9; Romans 8:34; Hebrews 7:25; Matthew 24:30).
We believe in God the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a Christ-centered, abundant life, and to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ. (See Acts 5:3,4; Romans 8:9-11; Romans 8:12-14; Galatians 5:16-25; Acts 1:8; Matthew 10:19,20; John 10:10, John 14:26; 15:26,27).
We believe in the Salvation of lost and sinful people through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ by grace alone through faith apart from works — though genuine faith is recognizable by its works, and through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. (See 1 Peter 3:18; Ephesians 2:8,9; 1 John 1:8 – 2:2; Romans 3:21-26; Titus 3:4-7; James 2:14-26).
We believe in the unity of Spirit of all true believers, which comprises the Church, the Body of Christ, deferring to one another in the love of Christ. (See John 13:34, John 17:20-23; Ephesians 2:12-22, Philippians 2:3-4).
We believe in the mission of the Church, the Body of Christ, to go to all the world and make disciples of all nations. (See Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 24: 45-47; Acts 2:8). We believe in the Resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto the resurrection of reward, they that are lost unto the resurrection of punishment. (See 1 Corinthians 15: 20-26; 42-44; John 5:21-29; 1 John 5:10-12; Revelation 20:11-15).
