Statement of faith


There is one God existing in three persons -- the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. 


The Holy Scriptures are verbally inspired of God and are our only infallible rule of faith and practice.


God's Son, Jesus Christ, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross, shedding His blood for our sins, and was bodily raised from the dead for our justification.  He will return visibly and bodily with power and great glory.


Although man is created in the image of God, he is by nature and practice a sinner separated from  God and can become God's child only by faith in Jesus Christ and submission to the will of God as revealed in the gospel.  Those who are thus born into God's family have eternal life, and those who are not remain in spiritual death and will be separated from God forever in hell.


The Holy Spirit lives in the believer and enables him to walk in purity of life and submission to the will of God.  All believers are united in the body of Christ.
