Statement of Faith
We believe in the one true God who lives eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He created, sustains, rules, judges and redeems the people of the world made in His image yet corrupted by sin. Through divine inspiration the written word of God, both the Old and New Testament, gives us a fully trustworthy account for faith and conduct. Jesus Christ, who was incarnated and born of the Virgin Mary, lived a truly human life yet without sin. His atoning sacrifice of dying on the cross in our place reconciled us with God and defeated evil. Only by God’s grace, through faith in Jesus Christ, can we, as sinners, be justified. The Holy Spirit leads us to repentance and unites us with Christ through new birth. The church, the entire body of all believers, is given life and gifts by the Spirit to worship God, proclaim the Gospel, and promote justice and love until the personal and visible return of Jesus Christ when all people will be raised to judgment and a new heaven and new earth will be established.
