STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe that the Bible in its entirety is divine revelation, and we submit to the authority of His Holy Scripture, acknowledging it to be inerrantly inspired by God and to carry the full weight of His authority.
We believe in one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is Creator of all things, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
The Father and the risen and ascended Son have sent the Holy Spirit to dwell in the hearts of believers, effecting their regeneration and operating in their sanctification. The same Holy Spirit brings His people together to form a corporate community of believers. We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that the triune God has established a visible church which is called to live in the power of the Holy Spirit under the authoritative regulation of Holy Scripture, exercising discipline, administering the sacraments, and preaching the gospel of Christ.
We believe that salvation is by grace through faith alone. This faith without its accompanying works is dead.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved to the resurrection of life, they that are lost to the resurrection of damnation.
We embrace and adopt the essential truths of orthodox Christianity as articulated in the system of doctrine expressed in the creeds of the Protestant Reformation, including the Westminster Confession of Faith, the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion, and the Heidelberg Catechism.
The substance of these statements is that which will be considered primary doctrine. Secondary or divisive doctrines and issues will not be presented as primary doctrine. When these types of doctrines arise, they will be referred to the family and local churches for final authority.
