Statement of Faith
There is one God who is creator and maker of the universe. He exists eternally in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, who are one in essence and equal in power and glory.

About Jesus Christ
God has revealed Himself to man in the person of Jesus Christ. He is fully God and fully man, the eternal and only begotten Son of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, sinless in His life, making atonement for our sins by His death on the cross and vindicated by God in His bodily resurrection, ascended to heaven to sit at God’s right hand as our Intercessor and as our Advocate.
Hebrews 1:8; 1 Timothy 2:5, 6
About the Holy Spirit
God is present in the world today in the person of the Holy Spirit who draws us to faith in Jesus and who bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. He indwells the believer which empowers him to manifest the likeness and character of Christ. He gives spiritual gifts to the church for our mutual edification.

About the Bible
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, His revealed truth and is the infallible guide for our lives.
2 Peter 1:20, 21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Man was created by God in His image, free as to choice and responsible to his Creator. Tempted by Satan, he separated himself from God by voluntary disobedience. As a consequence all men are born with a sinful nature and have need of reconciliation with God.
Genesis 1:26, 27; Romans 3:10, 23
Man can be saved from the consequence of sin, which is eternal death, by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ and in repentance of sin. Man cannot earn nor work for his salvation. When one is saved he is said to be “born again” by the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit.
John 1:11, 12; Ephesians 2:8, 9; 2 Peter 3:9
