Personal Statement of Faith

I believe

  • in the plenary inspiration and inerrancy of the Scriptures in their original languages,
  • in the sufficiency of the Scriptures as the rule for all matters of faith and practice,
  • in the Trinity of the one true God in three persons,
  • in the 6-literal day Creation,
  • in the sinful rebellion of all mankind,
  • in the Person of Christ (including His pre-incarnate eternality, virgin birth, sinless life, death on the cross, burial, resurrection, and ascension) and Gospel (that all people have a decision to surrender or reject Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior),
  • in the one way of salvation being the substitutionary atonement of Jesus Christ on the cross,
  • in the call of all Believers to discipleship,
  • in the local church being essential for spiritual health, community and the primary method of God for the evangelism and discipleship of the world,
  • in the imminent, personal return of Jesus Christ,
  • in eternity: the unsaved to eternal torment in Hell and the saved ushered to the presence of Christ at the moment of death.
