Statement of Faith
The Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God.
There is one God, eternally existent in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The human race came into existence by divine design in a literal 6-day creation, as described in Genesis 1.
Jesus Christ is God, virgin born, sinless; He died as substitutionary atonement for sin, He rose from the dead, and is at the right hand of God.
We are justified only by faith in the substitutionary atonement of Christ, only by God's grace when we believe and repent our sins.
The Holy Spirit is given to every believer immediately upon acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior to convict of sin, to teach and instruct, and to enable and empower the believer to live a godly life.
Believers are given spiritual gifts for the benefit of all believers. Not all believers have the same gifts.
The fruits of the Holy Spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These should be demonstrated in an ever-increasing measure as the believer matures in Christ.
Holy Communion and Water Baptism by immersion are ordinances of the church and commanded by Jesus for believers.
