Statement of Faith

God is the creator of all things past, present, and future. There is one God consisting of three equally divine persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God is infinite, all knowing, all powerful, all wise and He is the definer of what is true, good, just, and holy.

Romans 11:33-36; Genesis 1; Exodus 3:14; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Matthew 3:16-17


Jesus Christ, being the Eternal Son of God, second person of the Trinity, became man so as to rescue humankind from their fallen state of sinfulness. Jesus is one person with two distinct natures, being fully man and fully God. God sent Him as Israel’s promised Messiah and came in the form of a baby conceived by the Holy Spirit through the virgin Mary. Living a sinless, perfect, and holy life, He was crucified under Pontius Pilate and died. He then arose bodily from the grave, ascended into Heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest, King, and Advocate.

John 14:6; John 3:16-17; Acts 4:12; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; Matthew 3:17; Hebrews 7:24-25


God, as the Trinity, was present before all that exists. God moved to create something out of nothing for His good pleasure and eternal glory. God created the heavens and the earth, the seen and the unseen. Both creating the physical reality and the ultimate reality of all things. Chief among His creations, God created humans in His image, both male and female. Humankind was created to live in everlasting communion with God, working as His undershepherds of creation, and eternally glorifying Him.

Genesis 1-2; Psalm 100:2-3; Matthew 22:38


Adam and Eve, the first humans, having been given the free will to genuinely serve and worship God, rejected God’s good design, sinning when tempted by Satan in the Garden of Eden. All humans, being born from Adam, are guilty of sin by nature and by choice, meaning you are inclined to sin and choose to do so. This sin within us alienates us from God and puts us under His wrath. Only Jesus Christ and His work on the cross is able to transform our sinful nature and reconcile us with God.

Genesis 3:6, 16-19; Romans 5:12-21; Ephesians 4:24

The Work of Christ

We are only saved from our sin through the grace provided to us in our faith in Jesus Christ and His work on the cross. Acting as a perfect substitute for the wrath we are due according to our sins, His atoning death and victorious resurrection provides us eternal life and communion with God. In this grace, we are made new creations that imperfectly desire holiness and will be made completely holy upon Jesus’s return or our death.

Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:16; Romans 6:23; 2 Corinthians 5:17,21; 1 Peter 2:24; Galatians 2:20

Authority of Scripture

God has revealed Himself in both the Old and New Testaments of the Christian Bible. This consists of 66 books, all equally valuable for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in right living.The Bible was inspired by and inerrantly written through human authors by the Holy Spirit.

2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 John 1:9

The Church

God, through His Word and Spirit, established the Church as a community of those who have put their faith in Jesus Christ and are now new creations. Christ reigns as the Head of the Church. The Church is catholic in nature, meaning it transcends space and time, including all those who believe and have believed. The Church’s main goal is to go forth into all the world and to preach the good news of Jesus’s death and resurrection, also known as the Gospel. This results in disciples of Jesus Christ being made. The Church, as the Body of Christ, is an extension of Jesus’s ministry through the power of the Holy Spirit. The Church makes disciples through prayer, worship, the teaching of the Word, fellowship, the observance of Baptism and the Lord's Supper, and the use of the gifts and talents given to us and empowered in us by the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 28:16-20; Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:4-5; Colossians 1:17

Christ’s Return

We await the future, physical, and glorious return of Jesus Christ in which He will judge those living and those dead, those who put faith in Him (just) and those who have not (unjust). The time of this return is known only to God. His return demands constant expectancy as both the just and the unjust receive due reward. The just are glorified in Christ, given everlasting life and communion with God. As coheirs with Christ in His future kingdom, the just will rule, reign, and worship God in glorious bodies for all eternity. The unjust, with Satan and his heavenly host, will receive eternal separation from God and will experience eternal punishment.

Matthew 24:36–44; Luke 21:28; Revelation 1:7; Hebrews 9:27–28
