Our Statement of Faith

There is one God,(1) who is infinitely perfect,(2) existing eternally in three

persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.(3)


Jesus Christ is the true God and the true man.(4) He was conceived by the

Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.(5) He died upon the cross, the Just for

the unjust,(6) as a substitutionary sacrifice,(7) and all who believe in Him are

justified on the ground of His shed blood.(8) He arose from the dead according

to the Scriptures.(9) He is now at the right hand of Majesty on high as our great

High Priest.(10) He will come again to establish His kingdom, righteousness

and peace.(11)

The Holy Spirit is a divine person,(12) sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower

the believer,(13) and convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of


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 divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.(15)

Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God:(16) he fell through

disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are

born with a sinful nature,(17) are separated from the life of God, and can be

saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.(18) The portion of

the unrepentant and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment;(19)

and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss.(20)

Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who

repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of

eternal life, and become the children of God.(21)

It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and

be sanctified wholly,(22) being separated from sin and the world and fully

dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and

effective service.(23) This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought

in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion.(24)

Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the

healing of the mortal body.(25) Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are

taught in the Scriptures and are privileges for the Church in this present age.


The Church consists of all those 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, (27) which has been commissioned by Him

to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations.(28) The

local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the

worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship,

the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of the ordinances of Baptism

and the Lord’s Supper.(29)

There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the

former, a resurrection unto life;(30) for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment.


The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent(32) and will be

personal, visible, and premillennial.(33) This is the believer’s blessed hope and

is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service.(34)
