Statement of Faith

    We Believe

    We believe in what orthodox Christians have believed for centuries: the Apostles Creed and all the important doctrines. (The “main” and the “plain.”)

    • The Old and New Testaments are the inerrant Word of God and given to us for teaching, correction, rebuke and training in righteousness (2 Tim. 3:16).
    • The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one God, three persons, co-eternal, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent (Eph. 1, John 8).
    • Jesus the Messiah was born of the virgin Mary and lived as a man (Matt. 1).
    • Salvation is by grace through faith in the atoning work of Messiah Jesus on the cross (Eph. 2:8-10, John 3:16).
    • Jesus was raised from the dead physically. (Matt. 28).
    • The Church universal, the Body of Christ, is made up of all believers throughout the Earth, with local expressions (Acts, 1 Cor. 12).
    • The Holy Spirit works actively to empower believers for witness, ministry and supernatural works (Acts, 1 Cor. 12).
    • Jesus will return to Earth in bodily form (Acts 1:11).
    • Unbelievers will be judged and consigned to hell (John 3:16, Rev. 20:11-15).
    • Believers will reign with Christ and enjoy heaven (Rev. 5:9-10, 21).
