STATEMENT OF FAITH

About the Bible…

WE BELIEVE that the Bible is the inspired word of God. The sixty-six books of the Bible make up God’s complete, final, reliable and authoritative 
revelation to humankind. While other traditions, creeds and writings may be useful for understanding, nothing is elevated to the level of Scripture. 2 Timothy 3: 16, 2 Peter 1:20-21

About God…

WE BELIEVE that there is only one true, eternal God who is the creator of all life that co-exists equally in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit. God in his very nature is love and created us for relationship. To foster this relationship, God has revealed himself to humankind through many means. However, his most direct and intimate means was through sending part of Himself to this earth to take on flesh. Genesis 1:26-27; Job 38:1- 41:34; John 3:16; Romans 1:19, 20; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Ephesians 4:6 Isaiah 44:6 John 1:1, 14

About Jesus…

WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God equal with God the Father and God the Spirit. He became flesh (incarnate), as part of God’s redemptive plan, was crucified and rose bodily from the grave three days later. He ascended back into heaven to be our mediating High Priest. He will return in final judgment and final redemption of his people. Colossians 2:9, Philippians 2:5-9, Hebrews 1:3, Hebrews 4: 14

About the Holy Spirit…

WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit co-exists with God the Father and God the Son. The Holy Spirit is a gift given to physically indwell Christians when they are baptized. He is a deposit from God the Father guaranteeing Jesus’ return. His role in our life is to help and guide us in sanctification. John 14:16-17, Romans 8, Ephesians 1:13-14, Galatians 5:16-26
