Our Statement of Faith

Our 14 Tenants of Faith:

1. The Scriptures Inspired

The Bible is inspired by God and is the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct.

(Psalm 119; Isaiah 40:8; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:21).

2. The One True God

There is only one true God who exists as a Trinity of three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They are coequal and coeternal, and they coexist in perfect unity.

(Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

3. The Deity of Christ

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is God and the second person of the Trinity.

(Matthew 1:23, 28:6; Luke 1:31-35; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Corinthians 15:4; Philippians 2:5-9; 1 Peter 2:22).

4. The Fall of Humankind

Humankind was created morally good but was separated from God through original sin.

(Genesis 1:26-27, 2:16-17, 3:6-7; Romans 5:12-19).

5. Salvation

Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ.

(John 14:6; Acts 2:38, 4:12; Romans 5:6-11; 1 Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 2:11-14).

6. The Ordinances

The Lord Jesus gave two ordinances to His Church: baptism and communion. Baptism by immersion is a declaration to the world that a believer has decided to follow Jesus. Communion is a symbol expressing our union with the body of Christ and a memorial of Christ’s suffering and death

(Luke 22:14-21; 1 Corinthians 10:16-17, 11:23-26).

7. Spirit Empowerment

The baptism in the Holy Spirit is a separate and subsequent experience following conversion that is available to all believers to empower them to live an overcoming life and to be an effective witness in their culture.

(Luke 24:49; John 7:37-39; Acts 1:4-8, 2:4, 8:14-17, 19:1-6; Romans 8:26-27; 1 Corinthians 14).

8. Sanctification

Sanctification is the process by which a believer separates themselves from evil and becomes more like Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit

(Romans 6:11-23, 12:1-2; Ephesians 4:20-24; Colossians 3:1-10; 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24; Hebrews 13:12).  

9. Church & Mission

The Church’s mission is to seek and save those who are lost in sin and disciple them as followers of Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20). The Church is the body of Christ and consists of all people who accept Christ, regardless of Christian denomination.

(1 Corinthians 12; Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:19-22, 3:10-11).

10. The Ministry

Divinely-called and scripturally-ordained ministers serve and lead the local church in fulfilling its mission.

(Ephesians 4:11-14; 1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-4).

11. Divine Healing

Divine healing is part of the Christian gospel and provided for in Christ’s atonement.

(Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:14-16).

12. The Second Coming

The Second Coming of Christ includes the rapture of believers and the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on the earth for one thousand years. This is our Blessed Hope.

(Zechariah 14:1-5; Matthew 24:27-31; Romans 8:23; 1 Corinthians 15:51-56; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Titus 2:13; Revelation 1:7, 19:11-16, 20:1-6). 

13. The Final Judgement

All believers are saved by grace; however, the Lord will grant rewards and responsibilities in the eternal kingdom according to their stewardship of God’s gifts (Matthew 25:14-46; 1 Corinthians 3:10-15). There will also be a final judgment when nonbelievers are judged according to their works.

(Matthew 25:46; Revelation 19:20, 20:11-15, 21:8). 

14. New Heaven & Earth

There will be new heaven and a new earth “where righteousness dwells” and resurrected and transformed believer’s worship and work in the New Jerusalem.

(Matthew 25:23; 2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21 and 22).
