Statement of faith
The Bible, consisting of the old and new testaments is the inspired word of God, inherent in the original documents and of final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
There is one God, eternally existent In three persons-father, Son and Holy Spirit, and he is all knowing, all powerful, just, merciful, wise, unchangeable and gracious.
Jesus Christ is the son of God, and the son of man - fully God and fully man - born of a virgin, perfect in his person and eternal in his being.
I believe that mankind was created in the image of God and was originally without sin. Because of the sin of Adam and Eve, all of mankind are now Sinners both by nature and by choice and are unable to remedy their own lost a condition.
Jesus Christ died on the cross to rescue us from our helpless state paying the penalty of our sin and he rose from the dead on the third day, ascended into heaven, and now sits at God’s right hand as our mediator.
The church, consisting of God’s elect, began with the decent of the Holy Spirit on the believers at Pentecost.
By God’s grace, those who trust in the work of Christ for their salvation inherit eternal life and are sealed with the Holy Spirit.
Because salvation is a work of God’s grace, believers are eternally secure and released from relying on their own abilities and merits to earn acceptance from God and others.
The miracle of God’s grace frees believers To love as Christ loved, leading to unity, greater knowledge of Christ, maturity and expression of gifting for the benefit of the church.
The lord Jesus Christ will return soon and there will be a resurrection of the saved to eternal life, and of the lost to eternal and conscious judgment.
