Faith Statement

(Biblically Sound Principles)


The Bible is God’s inerrant Word, the only final authority for faith and life.

(Proverbs 30:5-6; Isaiah 8:20; John 10:35; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21)



God is Trinity, an eternal, loving unity of three divine Persons:

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

(Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 14:26; 2 Corinthians 13:14)



God created the universe ex nihilo, from nothing, and made all things very good.

(Genesis 1-2; Exodus 20:11; Hebrews 11:3)



God created humanity to glorify and enjoy God and to be stewards of creation.

(Genesis 1:26-28; Psalm 8; Isaiah 43:7; Revelation 4:11; Psalm 37:4)



Humanity has fallen into sin, and we are totally unable to save ourselves.

(Genesis 3; Romans 3:12, 23; Romans 5:12)



Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man.

(Matthew 1:21-23; John 1:1,14; 20:28; Hebrews 1:1-4, 2:14)



Jesus was born of a virgin, obeyed God perfectly, worked great miracles, died on a cross, rose from the dead, ascended to heaven, and reigns over all things.

(Luke 1:26-35, Hebrews 4:15; John 14:11, Luke 23-24, Ephesians 1:20-23)



Salvation is merited only by Jesus’ perfect obedience and substitutionary atonement.

(Isaiah 53; Hebrews 7:26-27; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Acts 4:12)



Salvation is entirely God’s gift, not our achievement,

and is received by faith, not works.

 (John 3:16; Romans 1:16-17; Galatians 2:16-21)



The Holy Spirit gives new birth, unites us to Christ, equips us with His gifts,

and empowers us to be His ambassadors.

(John 3:3-8; Romans 8:9-11; Ephesians 3:16-21; 1 Corinthians 12; Acts 1:8)



The church is the one body of God’s people throughout all generations

and from all nations.

(Romans 12:5; Galatians 3:26-29; Ephesians 1:22-23; Revelation 7:9)



Christ gives two signs and seals of his grace: baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

(John 4:1; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Matthew 28:19; Mark 14:22-24; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)



God’s holy angels defend and help God’s people.

(Psalm 34:7, 91:11; Matthew 18:10; Hebrews 1:14)



Satan and other fallen angels are dangerous but doomed. Christ is victor.

(Ephesians 6:10-18; Colossians 2:15; 1 Peter 5:8; Revelation 12:10-12)



Christ will return visibly to rule the world and to make all things new.

(Matthew 24:30; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 21:1-5)



God’s people will rejoice forever in heaven; God’s enemies will suffer forever in hell.

(Daniel 12:2-3; Matthew 25:31-46; Revelation 22:1-5; 2 Thessalonians 1:9)



God’s covenant addresses not only individuals but also their families.

(Genesis 17:7; 18:19; Deuteronomy 7:9; Joshua 24;15; Psalm 103:17; Acts 11:14; 16:15,31)



As individuals, as couples, and as families, we need daily conversation with God through Bible reading and prayer.

 (Psalm 1; Daniel 6:10; Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Ephesians 6:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:17)



We are called to a life of love, as depicted in the Ten Commandments.

(Exodus 20:1-17; Mark 12:30-31; John 14:15; Romans 13:8-10; 1 Corinthians 13)



We are called to spread the gospel to people who don’t yet follow Christ.

(Psalm 96:3; Matthew 5:14; 28:18-20; 1 Peter 3:15)



We are called to a world view and way of life which seeks to honor Christ in every area of thought and action.

(Psalm 24:1; Colossians 3:17; 2 Corinthians 10:5)
