STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe that God in His infinite wisdom and love, sent His Son, Jesus, to fulfill His plan for the redemption of mankind which was made before the creation of the world.  Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin.  In taking on flesh Jesus did not forfeit His divine nature but was both fully God and fully man.  All authority in heaven and on earth was given to Him by God.  Jesus lived a sinless life, though tempted in every way, revealing the Father through miracles and teaching.  He willingly suffered and died in our place, on a cross, bearing our punishment and appeasing the wrath of God toward us.  He was buried and, after three days He arose bodily from the dead, was seen by over 500 persons, and returned to heaven to prepare a place for us.  
 
The requirements of the law are met in the punishment for sin which is satisfied before God in the death of Christ. Through Christ’s perfect obedience and atoning sacrifice God justifies and grants mercy and forgiveness to those who, through the work of the Holy Spirit, repent of their sin and by faith trust in Christ’s finished work. Christ’s righteousness is imputed (granted) by God to Believers. Upon believing, the Holy Spirit indwells the Christian, who is made completely new through the new birth and regeneration of the Holy Spirit.  From that point on we are being transformed into the image of Christ by the Spirit. Therefore, forgiveness and salvation are found in no one else but Jesus Christ. It is a free gift of God’s grace and is not dependent on our works.  Allbased on the following scripture verses:
Isaiah 7:14 John 16:7-15 Ephesians 1:4-14 Isaiah 53:5 Romans 3:21-25 Ephesians 2:3-5  Matthew 4:1-11 Romans 5:8-17 Philippians 2:5-11 Matthew 28:18 John 1:12-14 Romans 6:23 Luke 1:34-35 2 Thessalonians 2:13 Romans 8:1-17 Titus 2:13-14 Luke 24:46-47 John 10:18 1 Peter 1:18-20 2 Corinthians 3:1 1 Peter 2:21-25 John 3:3-6 2 Corinthians 5:17 2 Peter 3:9 Galatians 5:16-25 Revelation 13:8
