WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe that the Bible consisting of the Old and New Testaments is the inerrant and infallible word of God, and the only rule for faith and life.

We believe in the one living and triune God, who is one God existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, which persons are same in substance and equal in power and glory.

 

We believe that God created mankind, male and female, after his own image, in knowledge, righteousness and holiness, meaning man was originally created morally upright.

 

We believe that all mankind has fallen from their original morally upright position, as a result of their sin and rebellion, and thus all men are sinners in need of a Savior.

 

We believe that Jesus Christ, being the eternal Son of God, became man, by taking to himself a true body and reasonable soul, being conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, in the womb of the virgin Mary, and born of her, yet without sin, is the only Redeemer of God’s elect.

 

We believe that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life and offered Himself at the cross to make full atonement for sinners.  We believe that on the third day He was raised from the dead and now sits at the right hand of God the Father, interceding for His people, until He comes again to judge the living and the dead.

 

We believe that salvation is a gracious gift of God from beginning to end and is obtained by God’s grace through the repenting of one’s sin and placing one’s trust and faith completely in the Lord Jesus Christ alone.

 

We affirm the historic Christian faith as expressed in the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed.
