STATEMENT OF FAITH
About God God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14
About Man Man is made in the image of God. As such, he is the supreme object of Gods creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin. This attitude separates man from God.
Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 56:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1,2
About the Bible The Bible is Gods word to all men. Human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit wrote it. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because God inspires it, it is truth without any mixture or error.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105, 160; Proverbs 30:5
About Eternity Man was created to exist forever. He will exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.
John 3:16; John 2:25; 1 John 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Matthew 8:11; Matthew 24:44; Revelation 20:15
About Jesus Christ Jesus Christ is the Son of God! He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus was born of a virgin. He lived a sinless life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days conquering the power over sin and death. He ascended to Heavens glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13
About Salvation Salvation is a free gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as Gods offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sins penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one repents and receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1
About the Holy Spirit The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation and comes in power when the believer is baptized in the Holy Spirit. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Holy Spirit gives spiritual gifts to the Christian for the purpose of witnessing, building up the body of Christ and for personal edification.
2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14: 16,17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12 and 14; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:1
