"Taking root downward, Bearing fruit upward"

Statement of Faith
Posted on August 11th, 2018

  1. Inspiration of the Scriptures

    We believe the Bible to be the inspired and the infallible Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16, 17; II Peter 1:20, 21)

  2. Godhead

    We believe in a Triune God, co-equally existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; II Corinthians 13:14)

  3. The Person and Work of Christ

    We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who became man. (John 1:1, 2, 14) He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. (Luke 1:35) We believe in His death on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice and His resurrection from the dead for our justification. (I Corinthians 15:3, 4; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 1:7)

  4. The Work of the Holy Spirit

    We believe that it is the work of the Holy Spirit to convict men of their sin, to in-dwell all believers, and to seal them unto the day of redemption. (John 16:7, 8; Ephesians 1:13, 14)

  5. Salvation

    We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Christ’s finished work on the cross. (Ephesians 2:8, 9)

  6. Creation

    We believe that God created all things in six days (Genesis 1:1), and created man in His own image. (Genesis 1:27)

  7. The Fall of Man

    We believe that sin entered the world through the disobedience of one man (Romans 5:12), and that all have sinned. (Romans 3:23)

  8. Satan

    We believe that Satan is a real being, an enemy of God, the author of sin, the cause for the fall of man, and the accuser of the brethren (Revelation 12:9, 10), and is doomed in the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:10)
