Statement of Faith
I. We believe that the Scriptures, including both the Old and New Testament, are inerrant and verbally inspired of God in the original autographs and are the supreme and final authority in faith and life.
II. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
III. We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.
IV. We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned, and thereby incurred, not only physical death, but also that spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with sinful nature, and, in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, become sinners in thought, word, and deed.
V. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures and as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.
VI. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate.
VII. We believe in “that blessed hope,” the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and that He will set up His Kingdom on earth.
VIII. We believe that all who in faith accept the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become the children of God.
IX. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
