A Statement of our Beliefs
Godhead- There is one and only one living and true God. The eternal God reveals himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
Jesus Christ- He is the eternal Son of God. He was miracuously incarnate yet divinely human. Jesus is the atonement and life and resurrection reconciling humanity to God the Father.
Fall of Man- Created by the special act of God, in His image, but by man’s free choice fell from his original innocence. All humanity are sinners by nature and choice, yet potentially redeemable by God into fellowship with God.
Salvation- Salvation includes regeneration, sanctification, and glorification. All who freely accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior receive God’s gift of eternal life.
Eternal Security- Everyone who accepts God’s gracious invitation of salvation is forever guaranteed a reservation in fellowship with God for eternity.
Assurance of Salvation- Because of the atoning act of Jesus Christ, anyone accepting Him as Lord and Savior are guaranteed life everlasting.
