Statement of Faith

We Believe...

  1. That the holy Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are divinely inspired and without error in the original autographs. The Bible is the supreme standard and final authority in all matters of faith and life.

  2. That the one, living, eternal, sovereign and true God, is infinite in being, glory, and perfection; all sufficient, unchangeable, incomprehensible, every where present, knowing all things, most wise, most holy, most just, most merciful, and gracious, long-suffering, and abundant in goodness and truth. God eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  3. That human beings are made in the image of God to reflect back to Him glory and praise. However, because of the fall, that glorious image has been defaced. All people are conceived in sin and brought forth in iniquity. Therefore, humanity is justly deserving of the wrath of God and ultimate condemnation. Excluding divine intervention, man neither desires nor seeks to be rescued.

  4. That salvation was accomplished for the elect only through the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ in His death, burial, and bodily resurrection. It is impossible for human beings to atone for their own sins; either through self-improvement or good works. Salvation is bestowed by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. Consequently, the elect are preserved and cannot be lost.

  5. That the appropriate response to the proclamation of this salvation in the Gospel is for human beings to repent of their sins, renounce self-sufficiency, and rely solely upon the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.

  6. That the recipients of this salvation are called to a life of grateful obedience in which they should always seek to glorify God and enjoy Him forever through the power of the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit.

  7. That our Lord Jesus Christ will return to establish the new heaven and new earth, execute the final judgment of the wicked, and accomplish the final glorification of His saints.

While many Christians seem to believe the Holy Spirit has only worked in the church of our day and age, we affirm the ecumenical creeds and the historic confessions of the Reformation such as the Westminster Confession, the Belgic Confession, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dort. Generally speaking, such documents provide a more complete declaration of our faith.
