Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative word of God (II Timothy 3:15-16, II Peter 1:21). *(1)
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30).
We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9); His Resurrection (John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4); His Ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).
We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the sinful nature of man, and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith alone we are saved (John 3:16-19, 5:24, Romans 3:23, 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5). *(2)
We believe in the spiritual unity of all who believe in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9,
I Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:26-28).
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14, I Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30, 5:18).
Clarification of doctrinal statements:
The Bible is the Old and New Testament and constitutes the only rule of Christian faith and practice. We specifically mean that we do not accept any other testaments, documents or revelations claiming similar divine inspiration. We consider any other such claims to be false and heretical.
We believe that the salvation process comes by grace, through faith alone. Works of any kind are a result of salvation, not in any way a means to it (Ephesians 2:8-9).ACSI
