What I believe:

• I believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:15-17.

• I believe that there is one God, who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; Ephesians 4:4-6.

• I believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man. Jesus was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified and arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate. John 1:1,14,18; John 3:16; Luke 1:30-35; Phil. 2:5-8; Col. 2:3,9; Mark 10:45; Acts 2:22-24; John 1:29; Rom. 3:25-26; Heb. 10:5-14; 1 Pet. 2:24, 1 Pet. 3:18; John 20:20; Phil. 3:20-21; Heb. 1:3; Rom. 8:34.

• I believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for forgiveness of sins and salvation, which is the free gift of God’s grace. Salvation is affected by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit and cannot be secured by man’s works or personal merit. Salvation is only appropriated by a person placing his faith in the finished work of Christ. Eph. 1:7; John 1:12-13, John 3:1-72 Cor. 5:17; Rom. 1:16, Rom. 10:9-10; Eph. 2:8-10; Rom. 8:14-17John 10:27-29.

• I believe that through Jesus' resurrection from the dead, the believer is assured of eternal life in Heaven.  John 3:15; John 17:3; 1 John 5:13-14

• I believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church.  1 Corinthians 12:12, 27; Ephesians 1:22-23.

• I believe that the ministry of evangelism and discipleship is a responsibility of all followers of Jesus Christ. Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15; 1 Peter 3:15.
