What We Believe

Confession

The following is our Confessional Statement, which represents what we believe to be essential elements of the Christian faith.

  • There is only one God, who created all things, and he has revealed himself to mankind. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 45:5-6; 46:9-10; John 17:3; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6; Galatians 3:20; 1 Timothy 2:5)
  • The Scriptures, comprised of the 66 canonical books of the Christian Bible, are our ultimate authority. They are God-given and true. We can know and obey God through them. (Deuteronomy 31:24-26; Psalm 19:7-11; Jeremiah 30:1-4; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 3:15-16)
  • One God eternally exists in three persons. The Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God. There is one God. (Psalm 45:6-7; 110; Matthew 3:13-17; 28:17-20; John 5:18-47; 14:8-17; 20:28; Acts 5:3-4; 1 Corinthians 12:4-6; 13:14; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15-23; Titus 2:11-14; 1 Peter 1:2; Jude 20-21)
  • We, along with all of humanity (Jesus Christ excluded), are sinners by nature and choice. (Genesis 6:5; Psalm 51:5; Jeremiah 17:9; Romans 3:23; 5:8, 12-21; 7:18; Ephesians 2:1-3)
  • The deserved penalty for sin is death, both physical and spiritual. (Genesis 2:15-17; 3:19; Romans 5:12; 6:23; James 1:14-15)
  • Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God who took on flesh and was born of a virgin, is both fully God and fully human. (Matthew 1:20; Luke 2:30-35; John 1:1-4; 3:16; 5:18-47; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15-20; Hebrews 1:1-3)
  • Jesus Christ died as our substitute to pay the penalty for our sin. (John 1:29; 10:1-18; Romans 5:8; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 1:3-5; 1 Peter 3:18)
  • Jesus Christ physically rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and will one day return. (Matthew 28; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24; John 14:3; 20-21; Acts 1:10-11; 1 Corinthians 15:12-34; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; Hebrews 9:28; 1 John 3:2; Revelation 1:7)
  • Jesus Christ reigns and rules over his Church, which consists of all who have trusted in him for their salvation. (John 8:31-47; Romans 8:29; 10:9-11; 1 Corinthians 12:12-27; Galatians 3:7-9; Ephesians 1:18-23; 2:11-22; 4:4-16; Colossians 3:1-4; 1 Timothy 1:17; 1 Peter 2:9-10)
  • In a future physical resurrection of the dead, those who trust in Jesus Christ will be raised to an eternal life. Those who have not trusted in Jesus Christ will be raised to eternal death. (Matthew 25:31-46; John 5:28-29; Acts 24:15; Romans 2:1-16; Revelation 20:11-15)
  • Only by trusting in the person and work of Jesus Christ alone can we be reconciled to God, receive forgiveness for our sins, and experience true life and joy. (John 3:16-21; 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:21-26; Galatians 2:15-21; Ephesians 1:3-14; 1 Timothy 2:5-6)
