Mission Statement:

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

We believe there is one God eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God as Father, is Author, Creator, and Sustainer of all creation. According to His good pleasure and will, He created all that is, including animals, plants, earth, skies, waters, and First man and woman.
We believe the Bible is God's recorded revelation to humankind, and that it is divinely inspired, authoritative, and written for all peoples and all languages everywhere. These are the sacred writings of God.
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, physical death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, and His return to earth in power and glory. He is the Bright and Morning Star, Ancient of Days, and Chief Shepherd for the peoples of the earth. We believe that He alone is the sent one, the only mediator between God and man.
We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, that he empowers and indwells believers to live godly, mature, and fruitful lives.
We believe that humankind was created in the image of God, but because of rebellion, rejected the path of beauty, wandering in darkness and alienation from God. Only through faith, trusting in Christ alone for salvation, can that alienation be removed and the peoples of the earth be restored to the path of beauty once again. Jesus performed the "once and for all ceremony" through His death on a cross, and resurrection from the dead. By this He broke the power of death and made a way for all tribes and nations to return to a loving relationship with Father/Creator.
