Statement of Faith
I believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of Scriptures; that it is inerrant and supreme and final authority in faith and life.
I believe in one God eternally exisiting in three persons- Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
I believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary and that He is true God and man, that He is the only and sufficient Mediator between God and man.
I believe in the personality of the Holy Spirit and that His ministry is to reveal Christ to men in the regeneration and sanctification of their souls.
I believe that man was created in the image of God, and that he sinned and thereby incurred spiritual death.
I believe in the vicarious death of the Lord Jesus Christ for our sins, in the resurrection of His body, His ascension into Heaven, His rapture of the Church, and His personal and visible future return to the earth.
I believe that baptism is immersion of the believer in water, setting forth the essential facts in redemption--the death and resurrection of Christ; also the essential facts in the experience of the believer--death to sin and resurrection to newness of life, and that the Lord's supper is a commemoration of the Lord's death until He comes.
I believe that the conduct and behavior and life of the professed believer is a valid confirmation of the genuineness of one's faith.
I believe that the church is a living, spiritual body of which Christ is the head, and that all regenerated people are members; and that the local, visible church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ associated with worship, service and the spread of the gospel to the world.
I believe that all those who through faith are justified in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ will spend eternity in full enjoyment of God's presence, and those who through impenitence and unbelief refuse to accept God's offer of mercy will spend eternity in everlasting punishment.
