What We Believe

Statement of Faith

We believe in the divine inspiration and authority of the Scriptures. By this, we mean that we believe the Holy Ghost miraculously guided the writers in their original writings and that this miraculous guidance extends to all parts of the Scriptures equally, applying even to the choice of words, so that the result is the very Word of God. The only infallible rule of faith and practice. Moreover, it is out conviction that God has exercised singular care and providence through the ages in preserving the written Word, that the scriptures as we now have them in every essential particular as originally given, and contain all that is necessary to salvation and an ordered life toward Christian maturity. (II Timothy 3:16-17/I Peter 1:20-21)

We believe that by one man’s sin entered into human experience and that original sin is the birthright of every human being, resulting in the depravity of each individual in all his faculties, which necessitates his rebirth in Christ (Genesis 3:6-24/Ephesians 2:1-3/Romans 3)
