Statement of Faith
X-Cons 4 Christ
God -We believe in the Triune God-that one true God has revealed Himself as the eternal, self-existent It, I AM", The Creator of heaven and earth, the Redeemer of mankind manifested in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. One God exists as three persons ‚– the Father, the Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. They are co-equal, and each is fully God. (Isaiah 43: 10-13; Isaiah 44: 24; Deut. 6: 4; 1 Corinthians 8: 4-6)
Jesus Christ-We believe Jesus Christ is both God and the Son of God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and physically died on the cross to make payment for the sins of mankind. When He took on a human nature He never ceased to be God; He was both fully God and fully man. He rose from the dead and ascended to heaven, where He acts as the Mediator ‚– the High Priest ‚– for believers. (John 1:1-5; John 1:14-18; Isaiah 9: 6-7; John 17:20-23; John 17:5; John 16:27-30; John 14:7-11;)
Holy Spirit-We believe the Holy Spirit is a divine person, equal with God the Father and with the Son we believe in the work of the Holy Spirit through ordinary people, and that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are relevant for today. (1 Corinthians 12, John 1: 33; Acts 1: 5-9, 2: 1-18; 1 Cor. 14: 2-4, 14-19)

Bible-We believe that the scriptures are the ultimate authority of the revelation of God. The Old and New Testaments are the inspired, infallible, and revealed will of God; and that these books constitute the only rule of faith and practice. We believe the bible is inspired by the Holy Spirit. We do not believe or accept any other teachings and beliefs, there is only 'One Truth'.(2 Timothy 3: 16-17; Hebrews 4: 12; 1 Peter 1: 25; Mark 13: 31)

Man-We believe that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. We believe that no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born again. We also believe that our redemption has been accomplished through the shedding of Jesus' blood on the cross-and that by grace we are saved through faith, if we confess with our mouths that Jesus is Lord, and believe in our hearts that God raised Him from the dead.
