Articles of Faith

 
We believe there is one and only one living and true God.
 
We believe that He is the Creator, Preserver, and Ruler of Heaven and Earth.
God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
 
Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God. It is through faith in Christ that man is saved and brought into a right relation with the Holy God.
 
We believe that the Holy Spirit reveals God to man and that those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.
 
We believe that the Holy Bible is the authority and inspiration for faith and practice of the Christian life. Every Christian has an individual responsibility to God to discover the meaning of the Scripture for his own life. The criterion by which the Bible is to be interpreted is Jesus Christ.
 
We believe that God is faithful and just to forgive all people who confess their sins and profess their faith in Jesus Christ, and that they become the children of God and Christian brothers.
 
We believe that spiritual regeneration of the soul must precede baptism, church membership, and commemoration of the Lord’s Supper.
 
We believe the first day of the week is the Lord’s Day, and that it commemorates the resurrection of Christ from the dead.
 
We believe that nothing can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
