Organizational Statement of Faith


We believe 1. That the Bible is the infallible Word of God, that it is His holy and inspired Word, and that it is of supreme and final authority. 2. In one God, eternally existing in three persons -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 3. Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, took on Himself all our sins, died and rose again, and is seated at the right hand of the Father as our mediator and advocate. 4. That all are lost and face the judgment of God, and need to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through His shed blood on the cross. 5. That Christ rose from the dead and is coming soon. 6. That in holy Christian living we must have concern for the hurts and social needs of those around us. 7. We must dedicate ourselves anew to the service of our Lord and to His authority over our lives.
