of Faith

The purpose of this church shall be to glorify God. We will seek to attain this through public worship of God,  preaching the Scriptures, consistent Christian living by our  members, personal evangelism, living mission-driven lives, and being students of the Bible 

(Ephesians 1:5-14; Colossians 1:9-10; Matthew 5:16; 1 Peter 2:9-12).

We accept the Scriptures as our only authority in matters of faith and practice, and our interpretation of Bible doctrine leads us firmly to believe that:

  • The scriptures of both the Old and New Testament are verbally inspired by God, lack error and are infallible in the original writings and they are of supreme and final authority. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Proverbs 30:5-6, 2 Peter 1:20-21)

  • There is one true God who eternally exists as three distinct and co-equal persons, who are of one essence: the Trinity; The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. (Isaiah 40:28, Matthew 3:16-17, John 15:26, Genesis 1:1-2, John 1:1-3, Colossians 1:15-21, Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19,  1 John 5:7-12, Ephesians 4:4-6, 1 Corinthians 12:4-7, Isaiah 6:1-10)

  • Jesus Christ was begotten by God, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born to the Virgin Mary.  (Matthew 1:20-23, Luke 1:35, John 3:16)

  • Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God and the second person of the Trinity. He is the Word who became flesh, both truly God and truly man in His nature. (Matthew 16:15-16, John 1:1, 14, Colossians 2:9, John 20:28, John 8:58, Colossians 1:15-20)

  • The Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity exists and convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. He is the life of the believer and He empowers the preaching and teaching of the Gospel. (John 16:8-11, Romans 8:11, Acts 1:8, Ezekiel 36:26-27)

  • Mankind was created in the image of God.  Human beings are born with a sinful nature. Therefore human beings commit sinful acts and experience not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation and alienation from God (Genesis 1:27, Romans 3:23, Ephesians 2:1-3)

  • The Lord Jesus Christ, motivated by love, died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the basis of His shed blood. (1 Corinthians 15:3, Romans 5:8, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Isaiah 53:5-6, Romans 3:21-28, Hebrews 9:22)

  • Jesus was resurrected and ascended into heaven, where He serves as our High Priest and Advocate before God the Father. (Hebrews 4:14, Acts 1:9-11, Romans 8:34)

  • Our blessed hope is the personal, visible, and  impending return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. (Titus 2:13, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Philippians 3:20-21, Revelation 22:20)

  • All who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again by the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God and receive eternal life. (John 1:12-13, John 3:3, 1 John 5:11-12, John 14:2-4)

  • The devil still works in the world to destroy the souls of men and that he and all his angels, and all humans who have not received Christ as their personal Savior before death and thus have not received forgiveness for their sins, will experience eternal conscious torment in the lake of fire.(1 Peter 5:8-9, Revelation 20:10, Revelation 20:15, Matthew 25:41)

  • The Church’s mission is to make disciples of all nations by preaching the Gospel or good news of Jesus Christ to all the world, baptizing and teaching to obey all things that Christ has commanded and loving God and neighbor. Jesus Christ is the head of His church, and the work of the local church is guided and supported by the leadership, elders and  ministry leaders and wise stewardship of God’s people.  (Colossians 1:18, Matthew 28:19-20, Ephesians 4:11-13, Acts 2:42-47, 1 Timothy 3:1-14)

  • The ordinances of the Church, given by the Lord, are Baptism and the Lord's Supper (Communion). (Matthew 28:19-20, 1 Corinthians 10:21, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, Acts 2:41-42)

  • Marriage is a lifelong commitment that is made between one man and one woman as God has made them. (Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:4-6, Ephesians 5:31)
