Statement of Faith

     We believe that the original manuscripts (autographs) of the sixty-six books of the Protestant Bible were inspired by God and are inerrant, and thereby trustworthy and relevant to guide mankind in the knowledge of God and in living according to the divine standard that God has created for man to life by.

Based on the Holy Scriptures, we believe the following:

     That the God of the Bible is the creator and sustainer of all life—infinitely perfect, holy and eternally co-existing in three persons—Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe this Trinity is omnipresent (everywhere), omnipotent (all-powerful) and omniscient (all-knowing), and preexisted all matter, seen or unseen.

     We believe that while man was created in the image of God, yet is born with a sinful nature which was inherited (imputed) from Adam and Eve, which causes both physical and spiritual death resulting in a separation from God. We believe that man is ultimately responsible (will be held accountable) for his sins and will be judged with perfect justice when all humans are resurrected and judged.

     We believe that Jesus Christ is both God and the Word of God, that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, and died a substitutionary death for all mankind who would elect Him as their personal savior — that forgiveness of our sins comes by no other means than through His atoning death.

     We believe that Jesus Christ is the sole reason for our faith and good standing with God, and that He is continually interceding for those who have chosen Him to become their Lord and savior.

     We believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, His ascension into heaven and His presence eternally with God. We believe in a personal, second return of Jesus Christ to earth - that, at some point in the future, there will be a final judgment of the living and the dead, eventually resulting in a bodily resurrection for the just and unjust as defined by God alone. We believe that the resurrection of the just will result in a life of eternal blessedness, and the unjust will result in eternal punishment.
