STATEMENT OF FAITH
The Essentials We Believe
We believe the Bible, composed of the 66 books of the Old and New Testament, is the inspired Word of God, infallible and inerrant.
We believe in one God, Creator and Lord of everything, infinitely perfect, all powerful, all knowing and eternally existent as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
3. GOD THE FATHER
We believe the Father is Creator and Ruler of all. He is compassionate, loving, and just toward all people and is faithful to keep His promises.
4. GOD THE SON
We believe Jesus Christ is God in the flesh. He came to earth fully God and fully man through a miraculous conception and virgin birth, lived a sinless life and voluntarily died on the cross in our place as full payment for the sins of all people. He arose bodily from the dead on the third day to demonstrate His power over sin and will return to earth for those who have believed in Him.
5. GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT
We belive the Holy Spirit is the Comforter, Counselor and Helper sent for believers to reveal God's truth to the world. We believe in the diversity of gifts given by the Spirit for the common good of the church.
We believe every person is disobedient to God's desires and plans in varying degrees and that sin separates each person from God, which is spiritual death.
We believe spiritual death is not God's desire and that people can be united with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and Him alone. Anyone who repents, believes in Christ's death and resurrection for their personal sins, and desires to have Him as King of their life is forgiven for every sin.
We believe holiness is defined as Christ-likeness. It is being like Christ in our thoughts, attitudes, actions, and relationships. God created us to be holy, calls us to be holy, and commands us to be holy--to be SEPARATED to God as His possession.
We believe the church is composed of all the called-out people anywhere, who have separated themselves from the world and have a living faith in Christ as their personal Saviour.
10. FAITH AND PRACTICE
We believe Scripture is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
