Statement of Faith

        We believe in one God, who created all that is, both seen and unseen.

        We believe in the Trinity as the compound unification of God the Father, Jesus Christ His only begotten Son, and the Holy Spirit that dwells within the existence of the believing Christian.

        We believe the Holy Bible, consisting of 39 Old Testament books and 27 New Testament books, is inspired by God in its original text, that it is inerrant beyond the comprehension of the human mind, and that it is complete for Christian living.

        We believe that Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary; that He lived a faultless sinless life; that he performed many miracles, that He died physically and was buried; and that He was bodily  resurrected from the dead by the power of God; and that He ascended to heaven and continues to live and intercede on our behalf.       

        We believe that salvation for the sinful state of humanity is only obtained through the conscious choice of a person to accept by faith the grace of God that was made a reality in the saving and atoning act of Jesus Christ in His death, burial and bodily resurrection from the dead.

        We believe that the life of a believing Christian should honor God morally, ethically and in all manners of spiritual disciplines that exemplify a life of consistent prayer, worship and Bible study.

        We believe in an eternal life to follow this mortal existence, which shall be permanently lived in either heaven, a place of the full and uninterrupted presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, or in hell, a place of eternal and complete separation from God’s presence.   

        We believe that at some point in the future history of this world, Jesus Christ will return in bodily form to be united with the true existing Christian church and to establish his ultimate authority amongst all the inhabitants of the world.
