STATEMENT OF FAITH
Our determined purpose is to know Christ. That we may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His person more strongly and more clearly…to know His love that we may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God, for in His presence we find joy and eternal pleasures as we are conformed to the likeness of His Son. (Philippians 3:10, Ephesians 3:19, Psalm 16:11. Romans 8:29)
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 4:4-6)
We believe that Jesus Christ is “the way, the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6)
We believe “salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to man by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12 )
We believe “if we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8).
We believe “if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”(1 John 1:9)
We believe “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” and can fully redeem and powerfully use even those who consider they have been “the worst.” (1 Timothy 1:15)
We believe God “is patient, not wanting any to perish but everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)
We believe that all scripture is “God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” (2 Timothy 3:16)
We believe every believer in Christ is the “temple of the Holy Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 6:19)
We believe we have been “baptized by one Spirit into one body” (1 Corinthians 12:13) and recognize the value and equality of all members of the body of Christ. We are “all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:29)
We actively support the unity of all believers eclipsing all denominational, economic, or ethnic diversities. We believe we have “different kinds of gifts but the same Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 12:4)
We believe “our citizenship is in heaven and we eagerly await a Savior from there the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so they will be like His glorious body.” (Philippians 3:21) “And so shall we forever be with the Lord.” (1 Thessalonians 4:17) Until then, we believe we are to strive to “live holy and Godly lives as we look forward to the day of God.” (2 Peter 3:12)
