STATEMENT OF FAITH 

  • Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who came into the world as the final and complete revelation of God the Father, the Creator and Sustainer of all things.

  • Because God loves us, Christ died on the cross to make atonement for sin, rose from the dead and ascended bodily into Heaven, and will return to judge the living and the dead at the end of the age.

  • All who believe in Jesus Christ and repent of their sin may enjoy everlasting life in the presence of God.

  • The Holy Spirit effects regeneration in the believer and is the source of life and power in the Church.

  • The Bible, as the inspired word of God, is the first and last source of authority for life, belief and practice.

  • God graciously commands the Christian to witness to faith in Jesus Christ as Lord through believers baptism, which is an identification with Christ and the community of believers, the Church Universal.
