Statement of Faith
We believe in one God eternally existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that God has revealed Himself in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, the inspired word of God in its entirety and supremely in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that in the beginning God created all things by His Son. He made man in His divine image, with free will moral character, and a spiritual nature.
We believe that man fell into sin, bringing depravity and death upon the race; that as a sinner, man is self-centered and self-willed, unwilling and unable to break with sin.
We believe that there is one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who died to redeem us from sin, whom God raised from the dead for our justification.
We believe that at death the unsaved enter into everlasting punishment and the saved into conscious bliss with Christ. We believe that Christ is coming again and will raise the dead, sit in judgment, and bring in God’s everlasting kingdom.
