Brief Statement of Faith
The Bible is the Word of God written,
inspired by the Holy Spirit and without contradiction of error in the original
manuscripts. The Bible alone is the infallible and sole authority for all
matters of faith and life.
There is one God who exists eternally in three Persons; the Father, the
Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are the one God; consisting
of the same substance, co-eternal and co-equal in power and glory. He is
self-existing and independent of His creation, Omnipotent, Omniscient and
In the beginning, God created the material universe from nothing in the
span of six, twenty-four hour days. He spoke,
and by the word of His power, it was. All things exist and continue to exist
according to His divine power and government. By His providence all things
are upheld, controlled and continue in their course according to God's eternal
All men are born sinners and are wholly in rebellion to God and all that
is holy and good; totally unable to save themselves or even to cooperate
with God in efforts to earn their salvation, due to the depravity of their
souls, which all men inherit from our first father Adam by virtue of the
Jesus Christ is the eternal
Son of God incarnate; Who took upon Himself to become man, being born of
a virgin, lived, died and rose again to atone for the sins of those who
the Father gave Him; a remnant of undeserving sinners out of Adam's fallen
race. The Lord Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and man.
Salvation is by God's will and power alone, Who sovereignly chose out of
the fallen race of mankind, a remnant of undeserving sinners to be grafted
into Christ, to the glory of His name. God alone saves those whom He has
elected to receive His grace in His good time by irresistibly drawing them
to Jesus Christ through His Word. This is accomplished by regeneration of
the Holy Spirit Who: quickens the spiritually dead soul, convinces and convicts
them of their sin, enlightens them so that they repent of their sins, and
with a true faith, trust in Jesus Christ unto justification. Because God
alone knows those who are His, having predestinated them before the foundation
of the world, according to His good pleasure and for His glory, the gospel
is to be preached to all men everywhere, calling upon them to repent of
their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as Lord.
God the Holy Spirit indwelling within
each and every Christian, supplies the daily strength and wisdom they need
to walk according to His will and to grow in holiness. To the church, the
Body of Christ, He distributes various gifts of service for the edification
of the body, for the work of ministry.
Jesus Christ shall return personally, visibly, and
bodily to judge all mankind and to receive His people unto Himself. At the
Judgment, all men will be required to give an accounting of every thought,
word and deed which were theirs during their life on earth. Those who have
been justified by faith in Jesus Christ will receive the inheritance of
glory, promised to them in the gospel. All others will receive that which
they deserve, that being eternal hell for having lived in rebellion to God.
