Statement of Faith


 

     This church stands for the whole Bible rightly divided. 

     We believe the Bible to be the only rule for government and discipline and adopt this statement of faith. 

    No claim is made that this statement contains all truth, however it is a statement of faith that we may “speak the same thing” (I Corinthians 1:10).  In order to be consistent with the Holy Scripture, we must indeed “set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us.” (Luke 1:1)

     We believe in one pre-existing, immortal, invisible, omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent God.  Holy in nature, infinite in power.  This one true God has revealed and is revealing himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

     We believe the Bible is the Holy infallible, inerrant word inspired by God and written by holy men as they were moved on by the Holy Ghost: and is profitable for doctrine for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.

     We believe faith is the basic foundation stone or first principles of Christianity, in that there is no salvation apart from believing upon Jesus Christ, His virgin birth and blood atonement for fallen man.

     We believe there is one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus, in whom we enter into covenant relationship when we make Him both Lord and Christ; Savior of our lives.   We are to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, souls, mind and strength and Him only will we serve.

     We believe the Holy Spirit indwells those who receive Christ, to change them into the image of Christ, giving them power to live holy, Godly lives and giving them authority to be priests unto God.

     We believe as a body of believers we shall endeavor to keep unity of the Spirit until we all come into the unity of the faith.  As for doctrine, we speak only where the Bible speaks, promoting unity by service one to another.

     We believe in a personal and literal return of Jesus Christ, in power and glory, to set up rule upon the earth. 

     We will look for that blessed hope and glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ; because He gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity and purify unto himself a peculiar people zealous of good works.
