Organizational Statement of Faith


We believe in one God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit; in Jesus Christ as the only name given to humankind by which we can be saved, now and eternally, in the Bible as God's written Word, in the sufficiency of Scripture, grace and faith alone; in the Lordship of Christ over all of life (http://www.warc.ch/pc/20th/02.html).
