Statement of Faith

The Trinity

We believe in the one God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, as set forth in the Nicene-Constantinoplian Creed (381 A.D.).

Christology

We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true human, being conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. His substitutionary death on the cross was for our sins according to the Scriptures. He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven and is at the right hand of the Majesty as our High Priest and Advocate.

Ministry of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the one promised by Christ whose ministry it is to glorify God, to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, to regenerate, sanctify, comfort, guide, empower the believer. We believe that He indwells every believer.

The Word of God

We believe the Old and New Testaments to be the infallible Word of God, fully inspired by the Holy Spirit and fully and supremely authoritative for all matters of life, faith and conduct.

Regeneration

We believe in the total depravity of humanity, and that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only grounds for salvation for all who repent and fully embrace His finished work on the cross.

The Church

We believe in one holy, catholic and apostolic Church composed of those who through faith in Jesus Christ have been united together in the Body of Christ. The church is called out to offer acceptable worship to God and to fulfill His purposes through the proclamation of the gospel with power, making disciples of all nations, by tending the flock through ministry of the Word, sacraments and pastoral care, and manifesting His justice, deliverance and healing in the world.

Sacraments

Water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed and administered by the Church in this age until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Eschatology

We believe that by the return of Christ to raise the dead, to judge all people and to establish His Kingdom, God’s redemptive purposes will be consummated.
