Statement of Faith

I believe that the Bible is the eternal, inerrant, infallible, inspired, true and living word of God.

I believe in the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, one God who always was, is, and will be, through Whom and for Whom everything was created that has been created.

I believe that in the fullness of time, The Father sent His Son Jesus Christ into the world to be born of a virgin. He lived a sinless, perfect life that I could never live. He died an agonizing death on a cross that I deserved to die, becoming sin for me and bearing the full weight of His Father’s wrath so that I could be seen just as if I had never sinned. On the third day God raised Him from the dead. He showed Himself to many witnesses before His ascension into Heaven, where He sits at the right hand of the throne of God. He lives forever, to give His own perfection, righteousness and eternal life to all who will receive Him by faith, through the power and indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

God has appointed Jesus Christ as judge of the living and the dead. He will come again in glory to bring final doom to satan, and to resurrect the righteous and the wicked. Those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life will serve and reign with Him forever, in the new Heaven and the new earth, in the city of the New Jerusalem, where there will be no more death, sin, sorrow or pain.

I have the blessed knowledge that there is absolutely nothing I could ever do to acquire, earn, merit or add to my own salvation, but it is entirely the gift of the grace of God, through the faith of Jesus Christ and the sealing and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit.

To God be the glory forever and ever!
