Our Doctrinal Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word of God, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of humankind, and the Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life. (2 Tim 3:15-17; 2 Pet 1:21; Heb. 4:12; Psalm 19:7-8; Matt. 5:17-18)
We believe that there is one living and true God, the Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; Gen 1:26, 3:22; Psalm 33:6-9; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14; 1 Tim 1:17)
We believe in God the Father, the infinite, sovereign, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love, that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of humanity. He hears and answers prayer; and He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (John 3:16, 4:24; 1 John 4:8; Rom. 5:8, 11:33-36)
We believe in God the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, fully God and fully man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, that He lived a sinless life and died on the cross, shedding His blood as the only acceptable sacrifice for our sins, that He rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of God He now sits as our High Priest and Advocate, and that His literal and personal return to earth in power and glory is imminent. (Heb. 1:1-3, 2:9-10, 4:14-16; 1 Tim. 2:5, 3:16; Phil. 2:5-11; Matt. 1:18-23; 1 Cor. 15:3-4; 1 Thes. 4:16-17; Rev. 1:8, 5:8-14)
We believe in God the Holy Spirit, sent forth from the Father and the Son, whose ministry is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, to convict humanity of their sin, to effect spiritual rebirth in the repentant sinner, and to indwell, sanctify, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service. (John 3:3, 5, 6:63, 16:7-15)

2 Timothy 3:15-17 "and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

Hebrews 4:14-16 "Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need."

And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
Matthew 1:18-23 "Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: 'Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel' (which means, God with us)."

Revelation 5:8-14 "And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.

Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, 'Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!' And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, 'To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!' And the four living creatures said, 'Amen!' and the elders fell down and worshiped."

And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you."
