Statement of Faith
The Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God
(II Timothy 3:15, II Peter 1:21).
There is one God, eternally existent in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30).
The deity of Christ (John 10:33);
His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35);
His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 7:26);
His miracles (John 2:11);
His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9);
His resurrection (John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4);
His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19);
His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).
The absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God's grace and through faith alone are we saved
(John 3:16-19, John 5:24, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5).
The resurrection of the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation
The spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ
(Romans 8:9, I Corinthians 12:12-13, Galations 3:23-28).
The present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life
( Romans 8:13-14, I Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30, 5:18).
That children are a gift of the Lord and are entrusted to parents, who are accountable to God to provide them with godly training and discipline
(Deuteronomy 6:1-9, Psalms 127:3, Ephesians 6:4).
