Statement of Faith

We are rooted deeply in the changeless Word of God.

1   |   The Word of God

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, 

written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith

and conduct.

2   |   The Trinity
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, that these are equal

in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, 

providence and redemption.

3   |   God the Father 
We believe in God, the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. 

We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of each person, that He hears and answers

prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

4   |   Jesus Christ 
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin

birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, 

ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth.

5   |   The Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, 

righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. 

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, 

teacher and guide.

6   |    Regeneration
We believe that all people are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation. 

We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior are regenerated by

the Holy Spirit.

7   |   The Church
We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated

persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, 

baptized on a credible confession of faith, and associated for worship, work and fellowship. We believe that

God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of giving the gospel of Jesus Christ

to a lost world.

8   |   Christian Conduct 
We believe that Christians should live for the glory of God and the well-being of others; that their

conduct should be blameless before the world; that they should be faithful stewards of their possessions; 

and that they should seek to realize for themselves and others the full stature of maturity in Christ.

9   |   The Ordinances
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church: baptism and the

Lord’s Supper. We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water into the name of

the triune God. We believe that the Lord’s Supper was instituted by Christ for commemoration of His

death. We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and administered until the return of the

Lord Jesus Christ.

10   |   Religious Liberty 
We believe that every human being has direct relations with God, and is responsible to God alone in all

matters of faith; that each church is independent and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical

or political authority; that therefore Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions, 

each fulfilling its duties free from dictation or patronage of the other.

11   |   Church Cooperation 
We believe that the local church can best promote the cause of Jesus Christ by cooperating with one another

in a denominational organization. Such an organization, whether a regional or district conference, exists and functions by the will of the churches. Cooperation in a conference is voluntary and may be terminated at any

time. Churches may likewise cooperate with interdenominational fellowships on a voluntary basis.

12   |   The Last Things 
We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His

kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal felicity of the righteous, 

and the endless suffering of the wicked.
