Belief

STATEMENT OF FAITH
our own statements of belief are not intended to be comprehensive of all aspects of life and faith, but are a summary of and guide to our convictions as Jesus’ church.   
  1. The Bible, consisting of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original documents, and the only final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
     

  2. One God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
     

  3. Our Lord Jesus Christ , God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His mediatorial work, and His Personal return in power and glory.
     

  4. The Holy Spirit indwells the believer, who is sealed until the day of redemption and empowered to live a godly life, through the ongoing sanctification of the Holy Spirit.
     

  5. Humans are created in the image of God but each one has fallen short of God’s perfect standard and is in need of salvation.
     

  6. The Salvation of lost and sinful man through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ by faith apart from works, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
     

  7. When Christ returns at the end of the age, all true believers will see his face and be with him forever, reigning with him in splendor and great glory, through all eternity, in the new heavens and new earth.
