Statement of Faith
There is one God, the Creator and Sustainer of the universe, the source of all truth, who is ever present, all powerful, all knowing, eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
— Matthew 28:19
Jesus Christ in His incarnate form was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, led a sinless life, was crucified for the sins of mankind, physically died, and rose bodily from the grave. He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God, providing all mankind the opportunity to experience eternal life with God and victory over the power of sin. This is the Gospel of Christ and there is no other way for salvation.
— I Peter 3:18
The Bible is the inspired, infallible, authoritative, and inerrant Word of God,
which gives the blueprint for successful living.
— II Timothy 3:16-17
Mankind was created in God’s image to enjoy a personal, intimate relationship with Him. Because of God’s great love for us, He gave us a free will. Mankind chose to sin thereby separating himself from God. Being rich in mercy, God draws all people by the Holy Spirit to receive Christ’s gift of salvation, providing restoration between mankind and God.
— Isaiah 53:6
A person’s character and lifestyle should be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. This ongoing process leads to joy, peace, purpose, and brings honor to God.
— Romans 8:29
