Statement of Faith
We believe God is triune: all three persons coeternal and coequal.
We believe Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is fully God and fully man. He was preexistent with the Father, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, crucified under Pontius Pilate, and resurrected by the power of God.
We believe human beings, created good, nonetheless disobeyed God and fell. Furthermore, humans, sinful in nature, cannot save themselves or be reconciled to God on the basis of their good works. We believe that reconciliation was initiated by God and based solely upon the atoning death of Christ on the cross.
We believe the Bible is the Word of God, trustworthy and authoritative for every area of life.
We believe the Holy Spirit gifts, calls, separates, and sanctifies believers, enabling them to bear fruit in Christian works, not as a means of earning salvation, but as ademonstration of the power of God in the life of an individual or a community.
We believe God has called every Christian to some kind of ministry and to carry the
gospel to the uttermost parts of the world.
