Organizational Statement of Faith: 

The Scriptures
We believe that the Bible as originally written was verbally and plenary inspired, is the product of spirit-controlled men and therefore, is truth without any mixture of error. We believe the Bible to be the centre of true Christian unity and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions shall be tried. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1: 19-21)

The True God
We believe there is one and only one living and true God, an infinite, sovereign Spirit, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness, and worthy of all possible honor, confidence, and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in every divine perfection, and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption. (Exodus 20:2-3; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Revelation 4: 11)

God the Son
Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself human nature with its demands and necessities and identifying Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitution death on the cross He made provision for the redemption of men from sin. He was raised from the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples as the person who was with them before His crucifixion. He ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One Mediator, fully God, fully man, in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the living and ever present Lord. (Genesis 18:1ff.; Psalms 2:7ff.; 110:1ff.; Isaiah 7:14; 53; Matthew 1 :18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 11 :27; 14:33; 16:16,27; 17:5; 27; 28:1-6,19; Mark 1: 1; 3: 11; Luke 1 :35; 4:41; 22:70; 24:46; John 1 :1-18,29; 10:30,38; 11 :25-27; 12:44-50; 14:7-11; 16:15-16,28; 17:1-5, 21-22; 20:1-20,28; Acts 1 :9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56; 9:4-5,20; Romans 1 :3-4; 3:23-26; 5:6-21; 8:1-3,34; 10:4; 1 Corinthians 1 :30; 2:2; 8:6; 15:1-8,24-28; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; 8:9; Galatians 4:4-5; Ephesians 1 :20; 3:11; 4:7-10; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1 :13-22; 2:9; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 3:16; Titus 2:13-14; Hebrews 1 :1-3; 4:14-15; 7:14-28; 9:12-15,24-28; 12:2; 13:8; 1 Peter 2:21-25; 3:22; 1 John 1:7-9; 3:2; 4:14-15; 5:9; 2 John 7-9; Revelation 1:13-16; 5:9-14; 12:10-11; 13:8; 19:16)

The Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit is a divine person, equal with God the Father and God the Son and of the same nature; that He was active in the creation; that in His relation to the unbelieving world He restrains the evil one until God's purpose is fulfilled; that He convicts of sin, of righteousness, and of judgement; that He bears witness to the truth of the gospel in preaching and testimony; that He is the agent in the new birth; that He seals, gifts, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies, and helps the believer. (Genesis 1 :1-3, Hebrews 9:14; Matthew 28:19; John 14:16-17; John 14:26; John 16:3-11)

The Fall of Man
We believe that man was created in innocence under the laws of his Maker, but by voluntary transgression Adam fell from his sinless and happy estate and all men sinned in him, in consequence of which all men are totally depraved, are partakers of Adam's fallen nature, and are sinners by nature and by conduct; and therefore, are under just condemnation without defence or excuse. (Genesis 3:1-6,24; Romans 1 :18-32; Romans 3:10-19; Romans 5:12-19)

Atonement for Sin
We believe that the salvation for sinners is divinely initiated and wholly of grace through the mediation offices of the Son of God, Who, by the appointment of the Father, freely took upon Him our nature, yet without sin, honoured the divine law by His personal obedience, and by His death made a full and vicarious atonement for our sins; that His atonement consisted not in setting us an example by His death as a martyr, but was a voluntary substitution of Himself in the sinner's place, the just dying for the unjust; Christ, the Lor<1, bearing our sin in His own body on the tree. (Isaiah 53:4-5; Jonah 2:9; Matthew 18:11; John 3:16; Acts 15:11; Romans 3:24-25; 1 Corinthians 15:3; 1 Corinthians 5:21)

The Church
We believe in the unity of all true believers in the Church which is the Body of Christ, which was established on the Day of Pentecost, and that all believers, from Pentecost to the Rapture, both Jews and Gentiles, are added to this Church by the baptism of the Holy Spirit. We believe that this Church is a congregation of baptized believers associated by covenant of faith and fellowship of the gospel; observing the ordinances of Christ; governed by His laws, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word; and that its officers are pastors (bishops and elders) and deacons, whose qualifications, claims and duties are clearly defined in the Scripture. We believe the true mission of the Church is the faithful witnessing of Christ to all men as we have opportunity. (Matthew 16:15-19; Acts 20:17-28; 1 Corinthians 12: 11-13; 1 Corinthians 11 :23-29; Ephesians 3: 19-33; 1 Timothy 3: 1-13,)
