Affirmation of Faith

There is one God, Omniscient, Omnipotent, and Omnipresent – all knowing, all powerful, everywhere present –who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in one person, the Lord Jesus Christ, who manifests Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ is true God and true man.  He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe on Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.  He arose from the dead according to the scriptures. He is now on the right hand of Majesty as our great High Priest.

The Holy Spirit is Father and Son sent to baptize, indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer and convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment.

The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men.  They constitute the only rule of Christian faith and practice.

Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God.  He fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death.  All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only by the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and are baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and believe in Him and born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life and become the children of God.

The church consists of all who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood and are born again of the Holy Spirit.  Christ is the head of the body, the Church, which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness preaching the gospel to all nations.

The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust: for the former, a resurrection unto life; for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment.

The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal and visible.  This is the believer’s blessed hope and is a vital truth, which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service.
