STATEMENT OF FAITH
THE BIBLE IS THE INSPIRED AND INFALLIBLE WORD OF GOD
II Timothy 3:26
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.
II Peter 1:21
For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
THE TRINITY – GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON, GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.
By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH AT CHRIST’S COMING
In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.
Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
IN THE RESURRECTION OF BOTH THE SAVED AND THE LOST
Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out—those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned.
THE DEITY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST –
HIS VIRGIN BIRTH, SINLESS LIFE AND ASCENSION
As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
And the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”
WE ARE FREE FROM SIN THROUGH REPENTANCE AND FAITH
IN THE BLOOD OF CHRIST
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN THE WORK OF SALVATION FOR “WHOSOEVER WILL” AND SANCTIFIES US HOLY
“When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father—the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father—he will testify about me.”
II Corinthians 13:14
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
CHRIST BREAKS EACH CHAIN AND CAME TO DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE ENEMY
He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.
Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.
