STATEMENT OF FAITH
- In the entire Bible as the inspired Word of God.
- In the one triune God — Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- That man is totally depraved and in need of salvation.
- That salvation is by grace through faith, and is made possible because of the virgin birth, death, burial, bodily resurrection, and ascension of Christ Jesus.
- That the Holy Spirit indwells each believer, and that the believer’s life is to be yielded to Him.
- That the believer is kept by the power of God and thus is secure in Christ now and for eternity.
- In eternal life with God for the saved and eternal punishment in hell for all who reject Jesus Christ.
- In the personal, imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
