Organizational Statement of Faith: 

1. The triune nature of the Godhead; one God existing as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; one in nature and unity, yet three in being.

2. The Deity of Jesus Christ; He is God Himself; and is eternally existed, possessing all power and knowledge; born into this world from the Virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit; is, at the same time, true God and true Man.

3. The Divine inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible, Old and New Testament; that the Bible is the divine Word of God and, in so being, is without error in its original text and is of supreme and final authority in faith and life.

4. Man was created in the image of God, sinned, and, thereby, was separated from God; each person born is separated from God by a sin nature with which he/she is born, and, in this condition, is unable by personal effort to be reconciled to God.

5. The Lord Jesus was crucified as an atonement for sins and, according to Scripture, served as the only possible substitute sacrifice able to sufficiently pay the penalty each human being otherwise must pay for his/her sins; those humans who place their faith in the fact that Jesus Christ served as the sacrifice which paid the penalty he/she should have paid for his/her sins, thereby, is reconciled to the living God and justified on the ground of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross.

6. The third day after the death of Jesus Christ, He bodily arose from the dead, according to Scripture, for the new life of man, and He is now physically seated at the right-hand of God the Father as the High Priest and Advocate of all believers.

7. The imminent return to earth of the Jesus Christ to reign as Savior and Ruler of the Universe.

8. The bodily resurrection of the dead, the just to eternal life with God, and the unjust to eternal separation from God.
