FAITH

FAITH IS LIVED IN CLASSROOMS, ON THE FIELD, AND BETWEEN FRIENDS.

WE BELIEVE IN

  • The Deity, Virgin Birth, Vicarious Death, Physical Resurrection, Ascension, and personal return in Glory of the Lord Jesus.

  • The Person, Deity, and Work of the Holy Spirit.

  • The person of Satan.

  • ​The Great Scriptural Doctrines of Sin, Salvation by Grace, Redemption, Justification of Faith, Prayer, Physical Resurrection, the Reward of Believers, and Retribution of Unbelievers.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

  • We believe in the Scripture of the Old and New Covenants as verbally inspired by God, and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are the supreme and final authority in faith and life. (II Timothy 3:16–17)

  • We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (John 10:30)

  • We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man. (Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14)

  • We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death but also that spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and become sinners in thought, word, and deed. (Romans 3:23–24; Romans 5:12)

  • We believe that the Lord Jesus died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood. (1 Corinthians 15:3; John 3:16–19)

  • We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate. (Hebrews 5:9–10; John 20:10–18)

  • We believe that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will personally return and set up His Kingdom wherein He will rule and reign in righteousness.

  • We believe that all who receive, by faith, the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God. (I John 3:1)

  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, blessedness of the saved, and the retribution of the lost. (John 5:28–29)
