Organizational Statement of Faith: 

Statement of Faith

We believe in the Scripture of the Old and New Testament as verbally inspired of God, inerrant in the original writings and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and on His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that, because of the fall, all human beings are born with a sinful nature, have lost their communion with God and are under His wrath and curse.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scripture as a substitutionary sacrifice and that all who personally put their faith in Christ as their substitute are justified on the ground of His shed blood, thereby becoming children of God.
We believe in the Present Ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the child of God is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
