Statement of Faith

“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”
Proverbs 22:6

I BELIEVE   the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative and inerrant Word of God. (II Tim. 3:16; II Peter 1:20,21)

I BELIEVE   that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Gen. 1:1; John 10:30,37,38)

I BELIEVE   in the death of our Lord Jesus Christ, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, 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. (Is. 7:14; Matt. 1:23; Luke 1:35; Heb. 4:15, 7:25; John 2:11; Heb. 9:12; Col. 1:14; John 11:25; Acts 1:11; Rev. 19:11-16)

I BELIEVE   that man is sinful by nature and that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is an absolute necessity for his salvation, which is initiated and accomplished by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. (Rom. 3:19, 23; John 3:16; John 5:24; Eph. 2:8,9; Titus 3:5,6)

I BELIEVE   in the continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (Eph. 5:18, 4:30; I Cor. 3:16, 6:19,20)

I BELIEVE   in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto eternal life and those who are lost unto eternal damnation. (John 5:28,29)

I BELIEVE   in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Rom. 8:9; I Cor. 12:12,13; Gal. 3:26-28)

I BELIEVE   in the creation of man, and all things, by the direct act of GOD. (Gen. 1:26-28, 5:1,2; John 1:3)
