Engaging Culture with the wisdom and power of Christ!

Statement of Faith

The Bible
The Bible is the inspired revelation of God’s nature and God’s will. The Bible is without error, infallible and the primary source of authority for the Christian.

God
There is one God who exists eternally as three separate persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is fully human and fully God. He was born of a virgin and lived a life without knowing sin. Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead on the third day and is now seated at the right hand of God having completely redeeming humanity from sin and from the consequences of sin. Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church.

Salvation
Every individual must repent of their sin and by faith receive redemption by making a confession of Jesus as Lord with their mouth and believing in their heart that God raised Him from the dead. This results in the new birth.

Holy Spirit
The works of the Holy Spirit are the same works of the Holy Spirit that are found within the book of Acts. The Holy Spirit empowers believers to be witnesses of Jesus to the world through reflecting His nature and continuing His works.

Second Coming
Jesus is going to return and his return is imminent. Those who believe in Him will be eternally rewarded and resurrected with an incorruptible body, and those who do not believe shall be eternally punished.

The Great Commission
All believers have been commissioned by God to go into the world and preach the gospel. Signs and wonders shall follow the preaching of the gospel.

    What about forgiving others? Isn’t that a requirement for salvation too?

    If you do not forgive others God will not forgive you.
