Statement of Faith

 
We believe that there is one living and true God, who is eternal without beginning and without end.  He is omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent.  We believe that in the one true God there are three distinct persons namely God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
 
We Believe that Jesus is God the Son, the only begotten son of the Father.  He took on flesh and was borne of the virgin Mary, being both fully God and fully man.  He is the only Lamb of God who came to take away the sins of the world.  He lived a sinless life and was crucified, died as a sacrifice for all the sins of mankind and was buried.  He died once for all and this sacrifice was sufficient.  He had the power to lay down His life and He had the power to take it up again.  He rose from the tomb bodily on the third day and ascended to the Father where he makes intercession for those who believe and trust in His name.  He will come again bodily to the earth to establish the Kingdom and begin His millennial reign.
 
We believe that all men have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God.  We believe that the wages of sin is death.  Therefore, all men are condemned to eternal separation from God and will be cast into everlasting fire, suffering eternal torment.  We believe that the only escape from this punishment is to repent of our sins and receive by grace through faith, Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, trusting not in our works but solely on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ upon the cross.  We testify that He suffered in our place, shed His blood and by His death and ressurection we have eternal life.  When we accept the truth, trusting soley in Jesus, we experience the new birth and the Holy Spirit of God takes up residence within us. We instantly become new creations in Christ Jesus and are justified before God by His righteousness.
 
We believe in being continually filled by the Holy spirit so that the believer, empowered by God, can resist our sinful nature and the Devil and live in obedience to God.
 
We believe there will be a bodily ressurection of all the dead, both the just and the unjust.  The unjust will go into everlasting punishment while the righteous enter into eternal life.
 
We believe that the 66 books of the Bible are the infallible Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit.  It is the only perfect order of our faith and manner of living, to which nothing can be added or taken away and is the power of God unto salvation.
