Statement of Faith
A statement of faith is the stated core beliefs of a church based on Scripture.
1. The Bible – all sixty-six books of the Old and New Testament—is the unique, full and final authority on all matters of faith and practice, and there are no other writings similarly inspired by God. Therefore, the Bible is the inspired, infallible word of God (2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
2. The Trinity – God eternally existing in three persons Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of deity. (Genesis 1:1,26; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1,2; 4:24; Acts 5:3,4; Romans 1:20; Ephesians 4:5-6; 2 Corinthians 13:14).
3. Jesus Christ – Jesus is fully God and fully man. He came to earth, was conceived in the virgin Mary and lived a sinless life. He died and rose again to reconcile all people to God and to free them from the power of sin and the devil. He will return someday and consummate the building of his Kingdom. All who are his bride shall reign with him. All who reject him shall suffer eternal destruction (Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38; Romans 9:5; Titus 2:13).
4. Mankind and its Fall – All people, both male and female, are created in the image of God. All people fall short of God's created intention and are sinners in need of a Savior. People are restored to a whole and healthy relationship with God when they repent of their sin, place their trust in Jesus Christ, and commit their life to him (Genesis 1:26, 27; 3:1,24; Romans 3:25; 5:12-18; 1 John 1:8).
5. The Holy Spirit – The Holy Spirit continually draws believers closer to God, transforms them into the image of Jesus Christ, empowers them for ministry, and distributes spiritual gifts to the Church. Believers are to always seek to be filled with the Holy Spirit. (John 16:5-15; Romans 8:16, 23, 26, 27; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31; Ephesians 5:18)
6. Baptism and Communion – Baptism and communion are two ordinances the Lord has given the Church. The preferred form of baptism we practice is believer’s baptism by immersion. (Baptism: Acts 2:38-41; Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 8:26-40; 10:47; 18:8; Romans 6:3-4. Communion: Acts 2:42-46; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29)
7. The One Universal Church – Though it has multitudes of diverse expressions, there is only one Universal Church of Jesus Christ. It consists of all who have a relationship with Jesus Christ. The primary purpose of the Church is to use every possible means to advance the Kingdom of God against the kingdom of Satan. (Romans 12:4-6; 1 Corinthians 12:4-6; Ephesians 2:19-22; 4:12-16; Hebrews 10:24-25)
