Organizational Statement of Faith


We believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testments are inspired by God and inerrant in the original writings and that they are the supreme and final authority in faith and life. We believe in one God, the Creator, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We belive that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary; and that He was and remains true God and true man. We believe that Jesus is the Son of God and died for our sins according to the Bible, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. We believe that all who be in faith recieve the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Hoy Spirit and thereby become children of God. We believe in the eternal reward (Heaven) for the believer. We believe in the eternal damnation (Hell) for the lost. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven and in His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate. We believe that divine healing is part of redemption's purchase and is God's will for all who believe. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells and gives spiritual life to all believers, enables them to understand biblical truth, empowers them for godly living and equips them for service and witness.
