Statement of Faith

We Believe.

We believe that God the Father, creator of everything, loves us so much that He has established a way that we might know and enjoy Him. That eternal justice rightfully condemns us for our sins and rebellion, but there is hope. God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to save us, that all who believe in Him will not be lost and without hope but will have eternal life.

We believe that the Son of God, Jesus Christ came here from Heaven and became a man by birth. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit in a young, Jewish virgin named Mary. He lived a perfect life and then opened the Kingdom of God to us when He surrendered Himself to die for the transgressions of everyone. He was crucified and buried but rose from the dead three days later, victorious over death, hell and the grave. He ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.

As we believe this, His death is applied as payment for our selfish past and we receive pardon and eternal life. In sorrow, we confess that we have done wrong and turn away from our sins. With joy, we believe the good news and receive Christ Jesus as our Lord and Savior. In baptism, we are joined with Christ Jesus in His death so that we can live now in the glory of His resurrection.

We believe that the God’s Holy Spirit has placed His seal on all who believe in Christ Jesus for eternity. We are His. We believe that this same Spirit has been given to live now within believers, to guide, to help and to give us grace and power sufficient for any situation. We believe that all things are possible for those who believe.

We believe that God will never leave or forsake His children. That soon the Lord Jesus will descend from Heaven and all those who have believed in Christ, both the living and the dead, will be caught up together to meet Him in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Amen
