PostSubject: Statement of Faith   Mon Nov 23, 2009 9:01 pm




========== Start Statement of Faith ==========


We believe the Bible , God's infallible written Word, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments.
We believe that it was uniquely, verbally and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit and that it was
written without error (inerrant) in the original manuscripts. It is the supreme and final authority
in all matters on which it speaks.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life,
In His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection,
In His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

He lived a sinless life and voluntarily atoned for the sins of men by dying on the cross as
Their substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation for all who trust
In Him alone.

He rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He lived and died.

He ascended bodily into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father, where He,
The only mediator between God and man, continually makes intercession for His own.

Man was originally created in the image of God. He sinned by disobeying God; thus, he was alienated
from his Creator. That historic fall brought all mankind under divine condemnation.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is
enabled to live a godly life.

The Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ and to apply the saving
work of Christ to men. He convicts and draws sinners to Christ, imparts new life to them,
continually indwells them from the moment of spiritual birth and seals them until the day of
redemption. His fullness, power and control are appropriated in the believer's life by faith.

Every believer is called to live so in the power of the indwelling Spirit that he will not fulfill
the lust of the flesh but will bear fruit to the glory of God.

Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, His Body, which is composed of all men, living and dead,
who have been joined to Him through saving faith.

God admonishes His people to assemble together regularly for worship, for participation in ordinances,
for edification through the Scriptures and for mutual encouragement.

At physical death the believer enters immediately into eternal, conscious fellowship with the Lord
and awaits the resurrection of his body to everlasting glory and blessing.

At physical death the unbeliever enters immediately into eternal, conscious separation from the Lord
and awaits the resurrection of his body to everlasting judgment and condemnation.
We Believe in the Literal Teaching that there is a Heaven, and There is a Hell

Jesus Christ will come again to the earth -- personally, visibly and bodily --
to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
