Statement of Faith

The BIBLE alone is the inspired Word of God, and the only authoritative rule for faith and practice.

All MANKIND are born in a state of total sinful depravity. Therefore, no person has the will, or the ability to come to God in his own strength.

GOD is sovereign in creation, providence and salvation.

JESUS CHRIST, the Son of God, willingly died as a substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of His people. 

SALVATION cannot be merited by our "good works," but is entirely a gift of God's free grace. God requires man to repent of his sins, and commit himself by faith to Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Salvation, once received, cannot be lost. All true believers will persevere in the faith, and in a holy lifestyle. 

At the time of salvation, all Christians receive the indwelling and fullness of the HOLY SPIRIT, and are baptized by the Spirit into the Body of Christ. As he lives by the power of the Spirit, the believer is enabled to live a godly life in this present evil world.

The CHURCH consists of all who are chosen by the Father, redeemed by the Son, and born again by the Holy Spirit. The church finds its visible expression in a local assembly of believers, gathered together by the Spirit, to glorify God by promoting His worship, teaching His Word to believers, and proclaiming His gospel to the lost.
