Statement of Faith
STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe in God, who is three distinct Persons in one: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, whom has revealed Himself through the Bible, His Word.(Mark 1:10-11; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 12:29-30)
He is the loving Creator of all things.
(Genesis 1:1-2; 1 John 3:1)
The Son, Jesus
He is God come to Earth in the form of man, the only Son of God. It is only through faith in Him that man can have relationship with God and be assured of eternal life.
(1 John 2:2; Ephesians 1:7; John 1:14; Romans 3:25-26)
The Holy Spirit
He is the Spirit of God Who exalts Jesus and dwells within all those who have been born again. He is our Comforter and Guide, revealing God to us, and empowering us to be witnesses.
(Titus 3:5; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Luke 24:49)
All of the Bible is the inspired written Word of God. It is the first authority for our life and faith in Jesus Christ.(2 Timothy 3:16; Romans 15:4; Acts 17:11-12)
All spiritual gifts mentioned in the New Testament are available for the church today.(1 Corinthians 12:7-11; 1 Thessalonians 5:19-21; 1 Corinthians 14:1-2, 12
The Nicene Creed written in 325 A.D. represents the basic evangelical beliefs to which our interdenominational staff adhere:
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, one in being with the Father. Through Him all things were made. For us men, and for our Salvation, He came down from heaven and by the power of the Holy Spirit He was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate, He suffered, died, and was buried. On the third day He rose again in fulfillment of the Scriptures, He ascended into heaven and is seated on the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son He is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic (universal) and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.
