Our Faith

The Bible:  The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by the inspiration of God, and are our infallible rule of faith and practice.

God:   There is one living and true God, revealed in nature as the Creator, Preserver, and Righteous Governor of the universe; and in the Scriptures as Father, Son and Holy Ghost; yet as one God, infinitely wise and good, whom all intelligent creatures are surpremly to love, adore and obey. 

Christ:  Christ is God manifest in the flesh; in His divine nature truly God, in His human nature truly man, being born a virgin. The mediator between God and man, once crucified, He is now risen and glorified, and is our ever present Savior and Lord. 

The Holy Spirit:  The scriptures assign to the Holy Spirit all the attributes of God. 

The Sinfulness of Man:  Man was created innocent, but by disobediance fell into a state of sin and condemnation. His posterity, therefore, inherit a fallen nature of such tendencies that all who come to years of accountability, sin and become guilty before God. 

The Work of Christ:  The Son of God by his incarnation, life suffering, death, and resurrection effected for all the redemption from sin that is full and free, and is the ground for salvation by faith. 

The Terms of Salvation:  The conditions of salvation are: First, repentance or sincere sorrow for sin and hearty renunciation of it. Second, Faith or the unreserved committal of one's self to Christ as Savior and Lord with purpose to love and obey Him in all things. In the exorcise of saving faith, the soul is renewed by the Holy Spirit, freed from domination of sin, and becomes a child of God. 

Freedom of the Will:  The human will is free and self-controlled, having power to yield to the influence of the truth and the Spirit, or to resist them and perish. The human will continues to be free after salvation and a person may reject faith in Christ and forfeit salvation. 

Salvation Free:  God desires the salvation of all, the Gospel invites all; the Holy Spirit strives with all, and whosoever will may come and take of the water of life freely.
