OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH

WE BELIEVE the Bible is the infallible, Holy Word of God, written by men who wrote under the direct control, inspiration, and anointing of the Holy Spirit.
The Bible does not simply contain the words of God, but is the inerrant, living, and active Word of God, the only written revelation to man by our God.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17 NIV)

WE BELIEVE the Bible increases man's faith, as well as instructs and corrects us through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit that we might become holy,
separated from the world and pure unto God. The core messages of the Bible is God's plan of salvation for mankind, Jesus Christ, and for our direction and
instructions for daily life in light of God's unique purpose for which He created each individual, and for the body of Christ, the church, in whole.
(Romans 10:17 NIV)

WE BELIEVE the Bible is the supreme and final authority in all matters pertaining to all things that ever was, is, or will be, and that everything in the life of
every human being is directly and indirectly affected by individuals'
attitude and choices about God and His living Word, regardless of his acceptance or
rejection of God, Jesus Christ, and His living Word .
(Matthew 28:18 NIV)

WE BELIEVE in the one true GOD, living, infallible, infinite, existing as three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - having no beginning or end, eternal,
timeless, and changeless.
(Revelation 1:8 NIV/KJV)

WE BELIEVE man is created in the image of God. When the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, yielded their thoughts, decisions, and actions to the
temptation of Satan, and made personal choices to disobey God, sin ushered into the world, inherit in every person born, through all generations.
This fall
from God’s grace put man in the position of needing forgiveness in order that his fellowship with God would be restored.
(Genesis 1:27 NIV)

WE BELIEVE God is Holy and pure, not accepting of sin but desiring an intimate relationship with individual mankind. God's penalty, the consequence of
sin, without the spiritual salvation freely offered through Jesus Christ, is spiritual death and eternal separation from God.
(Matthew 10:28 NIV)

WE BELIEVE that God loves mankind so unfathomly that He established the one means by which our sins would be covered, once and for all: the
sacrifice of His son, Jesus Christ, and the shedding of His blood. Therefore, He sent His son into the world to take man's sin upon Himself,
upon the cross of Calvary, where He shed of His blood and life as the FINAL sacrifice for all sin past, present, and future, for all mankind. The gift of
salvation is a free gift to all mankind, and simply must be received by FAITH in Jesus Christ as Savior and Holy Son of God. He is the only way, the
truth, and the life, the only mediator between God and mankind.
(John 3:16-17 NIV/KJV)

WE BELIEVE that only those who personally proclaim the name of Jesus and receive Him into their hearts and lives, by faith, are declared righteous by the
sacrifice of His shed blood, not of their own good works, and will live eternally in the presence of God after natural death.

(Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV)

WE BELIEVE that Jesus was conceived to natural life by the Holy Spirit through the virgin Mary, born into this world as God in the flesh, the only sinless
human ever born into this world.
(Matthew 1:23 NIV)

WE BELIEVE Jesus, upon His death, was buried and descended into hell to preach the salvation message, and was resurrected to life on the third day.
After appearing to various people during a period of forty days on earth after resurrection, He ascended into heaven and took His seat at the right hand
of God the Father for all eternity, and is interceding on our behalf.
(Mark 16:19 NIV)

WE BELIEVE when a person regonizes his need for Jesus as Savior, and confesses the name of Jesus in faith, he is reborn in spirit, a "new creation in
Christ," adopted into the family of God, a member of the body of Christ, identified as the Church, and is forever indwelled by God's Holy Spirit.

(I John 1:9 NIV)

WE BELIEVE salvation through Jesus Christ is not the result of any human effort, but is the free gift of God's grace through His son, Jesus Christ, who will
physically return to the earth one day, unknown to man, as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, will rapture all believers and declare final victory over sin and
death.
(Romans 6:23 NIV)

WE BELIEVE Jesus destroyed all the works of Satan who presently rules with evil over the world until Jesus returns. We believe Satan leads a host of fallen
angels, renamed as demons, who aid him in deceiving mankind against the truths of Jesus Christ, and wars against every believer in Jesus Christ.
(I Peter 5:7-9 NIV)

WE BELIEVE that believers must be ever alert and aware of the reality of spiritual warfare and know that victory is OURS through Jesus Christ. To combat
evil, we must make the daily, hourly personal choice to be obedient to God's Word, practice the life applications and examples found in His Word, purposed
for our good, our protection against evil, and our spiritual growth toward becoming like Christ, and discovering His purpose for our life as disciples.
(Ephesians 6:12 NIV)

WE BELIEVE God sent His Holy Spirit with gifts to the Church (believers) to empower us and to be our indwelling comforter and teacher until Jesus comes
again. The gifts of The Holy Spirit are alive and active today, just as they were in ancient Bible days. The Holy Spirit convicts mankind of sin and is witness
of Jesus Christ through us. The work of the Holy Spirit within us testifies with Jesus Christ, guarantees our eternal salvation, regenerates and anoints us
with power for good works, and sets us apart to live a holy life, free of God's condemnation of sin.

(Ephesians 2:10 NIV)

WE BELIEVE Christ ordained the observances of water baptism, symbolizing His death, burial, and resurrection, and the Lord's supper as a sacrement
symbolizing His broken body and shed blood.

(Matthew 28:19 / Colossians 2:12 NIV)
