Organizational Statement of Faith


Bible We believe the whole Bible in the original manuscripts, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inerrant word of God, inspired by God, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the Divine and ultimate authority for all Christian faith and life. Triune God We believe in one God, creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of God the Father, He now is our Mediator, High Priest, and Advocate. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Trinity, who is equal in power and coexistent with the Father and the Son. His ministry is to convict men, regenerate the believing sinners, and indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believers for godly living and service. Man We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God. But in Adam, man has fallen into sin and incurred condemnation and both physical and spiritual death. As a sinner, man is completely helpless and in need of God for salvation. Salvation We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who respond in repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace. Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward God. Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and commitment of the entire person to Him as Lord and Savior. There is no other way of salvation apart from Jesus Christ. All the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God?s power, forever secured in Jesus Christ. Church We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons who, through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head. The Church is to bring glory to God. We also believe that water baptism and the Lord?s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation. Second Coming of Christ We believe in the personal and imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. We also believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead. The believers will be resurrected into everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord and the unrighteous to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
