STATEMENT OF FAITH

God
We believe in the one and only God who is perfect and eternal. He is the Triune God: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, our Savior, and Lord. We believe that He is an infinite God and a true man who was incarnated by the Holy Spirit through Virgin Mary. He, being righteous, is able to bring sinners to righteousness through His sacred blood which was shed on the cross. We believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead according to Scripture, ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God as our high priest and the king of the universe. We believe that He will come again with glory to build a kingdom of righteousness and peace.

Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead, who dwells in the hearts of true believers. He came to lead us, teach us, and grant us abilities. We believe He convicts the world of its sins, regenerates sinners, and brings both righteousness and judgment.

Holy Bible
We accept the Holy Scriptures, the Old and New Testaments, as inspired by God. Scripture is the Word of God which is accurate and inerrant. The purpose of this revelation is to show God's concern for the salvation of all humans. We believe the Holy Scriptures to be the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine, and Christian conduct.

Creation
We believe in the historicity and primeval history of the biblical record of creation and the reality of heaven and hell and the literal existence of the devil.

Human Beings
We believe that humans were created in the image of God. However, this perfect image was impaired through Adam and Eve's disobedience to the point of total degradation. Following the Fall, humans experienced the process of death in both body and spirit. Therefore, humans which were set apart from God, carry the characteristics of original sin from birth.

Salvation
We believe that the salvation of all persons is brought through the substitutionary and redemptive sacrifice of Jesus Christ through His literal physical death, burial, resurrection, and bodily ascension into heaven. Whosoever repents of her/his sins and believes in Jesus is born again by the Holy Spirit, receives the gift of everlasting life, and becomes a child of God.

Sanctity and Purity
God wants His children to be holy by being filled with the Holy Spirit; to live a life of righteousness in contrast to sinfulness, to dedicate their lives to His will, and to live a life of effective service.

The Church
We believe the Church is composed of all believers in Christ who are redeemed by His blood and born again by the Holy Spirit. Christ is the head of His Church. We believe that it is our duty to spread His Gospel as God's witness to all nations of the world. Our local churches are gatherings of believers who come together to worship Father God, to be taught from His Word, to pray and fellowship with one another, to share the Gospel with others, and to participate in Holy Communion and Baptism.

Resurrection
We believe in the physical resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous respectively. The righteous will resurrect unto eternal life and the unrighteous will resurrect unto judgment in the place of eternal punishment which was prepared for all who die outside of Christ.

The Second Advent
We believe in the imminence of Jesus Christ's second coming. He will return in physical form and will be visible to anyone in the world. We believe that His second coming is a blessed hope to all believers and motivates us to lead a faithful life in sincere service to the Lord.
