Statement of Faith
Resources based on a Christian perspective.
Statement of Faith:
God - We believe in the one true God and that he created all things. He is holy, true, just, and righteous. He eternally exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are one God and are co-equal being worthy and deserving glory, honor, and obedience. (Gen. 1:1; Duet. 32:4; Psalm 90:2; Matt. 28:19-20; John 1:1-4, 17:3; Rev. 4:11)
Jesus Christ - We believe that Jesus Christ is the manifestation of God in the flesh. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. He lived a perfect and sinless life and offered himself as a sin offering (died on the cross) for the sins of all people. He arose from the dead on the third day conquering sin and death. He will one day return to earth and reign as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (Matt. 1:22-23; John 1:1,14,18; John 14:10-21, Romans 1:3,4; 1 Timothy 3:16, 6:14-15)
Holy Spirit - We believe that the Holy Spirit is co-equal with God the Father and the Son of God (Jesus Christ). The Holy Spirit lives in all Christians (from the time of salvation) giving them the strength and guidence to resist the temptations of Satan and provides understanding in spiritual truth. (Acts1:8; 1 Cor. 2:12, 3:16. 12:12-13; 2 Cor. 3:17; Eph. 1:13)
Bible - We believe that the Bible is the inerrant word of God. It was written by human authors by the inspiration and influence of the Holy Spirit. (Psalm 119:160; Matt. 5:18; 2 Tim. 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
Man - We believe that man was created by God, innocent of sin until his fall, which was by voluntary disobedience. Because of this all men are naturally sinful by choice and inheritance, deserving God's wrath and condemnation needing a Savior. (Gen. 3:1-6; Isaiah 53:6, 59:1-2; Romans 3:10-19)
Salvation - We believe that the only way to salvation and eternity with God is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus died for our sins according to the scriptures and that no one may enter into the Father except through Him. Each person that accepts Christ as their Savior is born again and becomes eternally secure as a child of God. (Romans 6:23, 8:37-39, 10:9; John 14:6, 1:12, 10:29; Titus 3:5; 2 Cor. 5:21; Eph. 2:8-9; Heb. 7:25, 10:10,14)
