Statement of Faith
All churches must agree with every portion of this statement to pursue membership.
We believe there is one God who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ to be true God and in his incarnation to have been true man. He was born of the Virgin Mary, conceived by the Holy Spirit, died for our sins and was raised from the dead for our justification. He is now seated at the right hand of God in majesty, making intercession as our High Priest. He will come again in glory to establish His kingdom of righteousness and peace.
We believe the Old and New Testaments to be the infallible Word of God, inerrant as originally given, directly inspired by God and the complete and sufficient revelation of His will for man's salvation and conduct.
We believe man was originally created in the image of God. Through disobedience, self-centeredness, and sin he incurred both physical and spiritual death. Thus, all are now born with a sinful nature, separated from God and can be saved only through the atoning work of Jesus Christ. All who are impenitent and unbelieving will be lost in a Christless eternity of conscious torment in hell; for those who believe eternity will be spent in God's presence, in His distinct joy and bliss.
We believe the church consists of all those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. They join together for worship, prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the Gospel and observance of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper.
We believe in the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ as both personal and visible. This is our blessed hope.
We believe in the Great Commission to proclaim the Gospel of our Lord to the uttermost parts of the earth, thus giving man the Word of God in truth and also hastening the return of Christ.
We believe in the local Christian church as the primary and sufficient vehicle initiated and founded by God on the power of the Holy Spirit to nurture new believers in faith, disciple mature believers, and evangelize the lost.
Goals in relation to our statement of faith:
This ministry is in the primary service of the local church, uniting local church bodies to accomplish evangelism and elevate civic virtue in the face of corrupting social influences in ways unavailable when we stand apart.
