Organizational Statement of Faith


STATEMENT OF FAITH Accordingly we believe: 1. The Bible is the inspired word of God, the supreme and final authority in faith and conduct, which reveals the nature of God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit (2 Tim. 3:16; 1 Pet. 1:19-21). 2. God interacts with this world as Creator and Savior through Jesus Christ (Gen. 1; Heb. 1:1-3; John 1:1-5; 12-13). 3. God is honored when we imitate the nature of God and his son through the guidance of the Holy Spirit (John 3:13-17; 1 Cor. 11:1; 2 Pet. 2:21). 4. Jesus Christ is the son of God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born in the flesh to a virgin. He was crucified with the foreknowledge of God as atonement for man ‚’s sin, was raised from the dead, and has ascended to the right hand of God. Through Him only we have access to God (John 3:13-17; John 14:6; Acts 2:22-23; 1 Cor. 15:1-4). 5. Salvation of man is only through God ‚’s gift of grace for those who put their faith only in Jesus Christ for their justification. Faith is demonstrated by obeying His command to be baptized in water reflecting the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus (Eph. 2:8-9, Gal. 2:16, Gal. 3:26-27, Rom. 6:3-4, 23, Acts 2:37-39, Matt. 28:18-20). 6. Those who have accepted God ‚’s gift of grace and demonstrated their faith have fellowship with Him if we walk in the light as He in the light, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1:5-10). 7. Jesus Christ established His church and placed himself as head (Eph. 1:22-23, 5:23; Matt. 16:18). 8. God interacts with believers through the Holy Spirit as Helper, Teacher, Guide, and convicts all mankind of sin, righteousness, and judgment (John 14:26, 15:26, 16:13; Acts 9:31). 9. God is to be worshipped in spirit and taught. God calls us to participate regularly in worship and service, to praise him and mutually encourage and build each other up in Jesus Christ (John 4:24; Acts 2:42-47; Heb. 10:23-25). 10. Like Jesus, children should grow in the knowledge and wisdom of God as they age, increasing in favor with God and man (Luke 2:40, 52; Matt. 19:13-14). 11. Jesus Christ is glorified by our conduct and effort to do our best in everything we do, knowing it is Him we serve (Col. 3:12-14, 17, 23-24). 12. Marriage is a divinely instituted relationship between one man and one woman, intended by God to last a life time (Matt. 19:3-9; 1 Cor. 7:10-11; Gen. 2:18-25).
