“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

 

STATEMENT OF FAITH

 

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God, inerrant in the original manuscripts.

 

We believe the inerrancy of Scripture embraces not only religious truth, but also the Bible’s scientific, historical and literary features.

 

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons—Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

We believe in the creation of man and all nature by the direct act of God, as recorded in Genesis.

 

We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in his virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood and His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

 

We believe That all mankind is lost, sinful, and in need of salvation which comes only through regeneration by grace through faith.

 

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

 

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved into the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

 

We believe In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

In signing below, I affirm that I agree, without reservation, with the above Statement of Faith.
