Statement of Faith
What We Believe
· We believe “That there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word [Jesus], and the Holy Ghost, and these three are one” [I John 4:7].
·We believe that Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary, and that He is the only Redeemer to reconcile us with God: “And all things (are) of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation” (II Corinthians 5:18).
· We believe that Jesus Christ is all truth: “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ come into the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist” [II John 1:7].
·We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to earth to die for the sins of all mankind: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” [John 3:16].
· We believe in the Great Commission given by Jesus Christ instructing us to reach people of all ethnic, cultural, and geographical backgrounds:
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the
Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
"Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you
even unto the end of the world” [Matthew 28:19-20].
· We believe that Jesus is the only way to salvation and God. The Scriptures declare, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name, under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” [Acts 4:12].
·We believe that Jesus paid for the healing of all manner of diseases, and human conditions through his death, burial, and resurrection. “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed” (I Peter 2:24).
“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of
our peace was
upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5).
We believe in the Holy Scriptures both Old and New Testaments as the inspired word of God; and that “All scripture (is) given by inspiration of God, and (is) profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. That the man of God may be prefect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (II Timothy 3:16-17).
·We believe in traditional family values, and the sacredness of marriage as is ordained and prescribed by God who said: “Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female. And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?” (Matthew 19:4-5).
