STATEMENT of FAITH
WE BELIEVE in one omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient God revealed to man in three distinct persons, namely the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE that Jesus is the Son of God. He came to Earth in the flesh, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died to pay for the sins of humanity, rose to life eternal, and will, one day, return to earth to be with His people. Eternal salvation comes only through His name.
WE BELIEVE that all people are made in the image of God. All human life is sacred, and the innocent should be defended.
WE BELIEVE that the Christian life should result in one becoming a disciple of Christ. A believer should follow the morals and conduct of the New Testament scriptures. A Christian’s character should reflect the fruit of the Holy Spirit, namely: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control.
WE BELIEVE in the unity of believers, and that we should live in harmony with all men where possible, especially with Christians – those in the household of faith.
WE BELIEVE in caring for widows, orphans, and the poor with compassion and practical aid.
WE BELIEVE in the ordinances of the New Testament and the sacraments of the Christian Church including: believer’s baptism, celebration of the Lord’s supper, study of the apostle’s doctrine, prayer, worship, fellowship with God’s people, miraculous signs and wonders, and we hold marriage as holy unto the Lord.
WE BELIEVE in the bodily resurrection of the dead. Those who receive God’s grace will live with Him eternally, but the wicked will suffer in hell.
WE BELIEVE that God judges people in this life as well as in eternity. A person is saved only by God’s grace and not by works, but his behavior in this life will determine his eternal rewards.
Although this is not intended to be an exhaustive statement of all that we believe, it does aim to express our belief in the elementary truths that have provided the foundation for the true Christian faith from its origin through to this present day.
