What We Believe
WE BELIEVE IN THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT OF FAITH
In Scriptures: All Scriptures (Old and New Testaments) is divinely inspired of God; and is the only authority of faith and Godly conduct. 1 Tim. 3:15-17.
God: There is one true and living God, the Creator of all things; All Knowing, Eternal Love, the Redeemer of mankind, He has revealed himself as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, St. John 1:1-14.
The Trinity: We may scriptually speak of the God of heaven as a trinity, though He is One Lord. God has revealed Himself in three distinct personal attributes and yet absolutely unified in One. St. John1:1-14.
Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ: The Word of God explicitly declares:
His virgin birth – Matt. 1:23
His sinless life – Heb. 7:26
His substitutionary sacrifice on the cross, 1 Cor 15:3
His bodily resurrection from the dead, Matt 28:6; 1 Cor. 15:4
His place at the right hand of God, Acts 2:33
The Fall of Man: God has created man good and free of any evil. However, man of his own choice transgressed the will and command of God; thereby inheriting the nature of sin which results in physical death as well as spiritual death (separation from God).
The Salvation of Man: Man can now only be redeemed through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God. This salvation is received: Through repentance toward God and Faith in Jesus Christ, being justified by grace through faith, Rom. 10:9-15. The inward witness of the Spirit and the outward witness of a holy and righteous life are the evidence of salvation, Romans 8:16; Eph. 4:24.
