Statement of Faith

ABOUT GOD: God is the creator, sustainer, redeemer and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. (Gen. 1:1,26; Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19-20; John 4:24; 2 Cor. 13:14)

ABOUT GOD THE FATHER: The first person in the Trinity orders and directs all things according to His own purpose, pleasure and grace. He created the universe apart from any preexisting materials and without any further means other than His power. As an infinitely loving father, he graciously involves Himself in the daily concerns of men and women, longing for their salvation and spiritual growth. (Matt. 6:9; John 5:19-24; Ephesians 1:3-6)

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST: Jesus Christ is God's only Son, (John 3:16), and our sole mediator, (1 Tim. 2:5). I believe in His preexistence (John 1:1); His incarnation (John 1:1-14); His virgin birth, (Matt. 1:23-25); His sinless life, (Heb. 4:15); His example of ministry (John 13:14-15); His substitutive atonement (Rom. 3:23-25); His bodily resurrection from the dead (Acts 2:24-27); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Acts 1:9-11); and his bodily return from heaven (Titus 2:13).

ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT: The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of the truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He bestows upon every believer a spiritual gift(s) when they receive Christ. As Christians, we seek to enjoy His presence and live under His control daily. (Matt. 28:19; John 3:3-7; Rom. 8:9; 1 Cor. 2:12, 6:19, 12:13; Eph. 4:30; Titus 3:5)

ABOUT THE BIBLE: The Bible is God's word to us. I believe that the Bible contains absolute truth. That truth can powerfully change our lives; and therefore, my ministry is centered on it. I encourage regular Bible reading and study. Although written by human authors, every word in the original manuscripts of the Holy Scriptures is inspired of God, complete, unified and without error. (Matt. 5:18; 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).

ABOUT MAN AND SIN: People are spiritual beings, created in the image of God, and designed to be like Him in character and conduct. Sin originated in mankind with Adam and Eve. People are now sinners by nature and by choice. Yet, mankind remains in God's image even though fallen. (Gen. 1:26-27; 3:1-6; Rom. 5:12-14; James 3:9)

ABOUT SALVATION: Jesus died in our place on the cross so that we might have eternal life with God in heaven. Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must personally accept it and receive it by faith. Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, apart from human merit, works or ceremonies. (Acts 4:12; 16:31; Eph. 2:8-9)

ABOUT ETERNITY: People are created with souls that live eternally. We will exist eternally separated from God by sin; or we will exist eternally united with God through Jesus Christ. To be eternally separated from God is hell; to be eternally in union with God is eternal life in heaven. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence. (John 5:25-29, 11:25-26; 1 Cor. 15:51-57; Rev. 20:11-15)
