what we as believers in God's Word hold true
as our statement of faith
First and foremost God is the Creator of Heaven and Earth and everything in between. We believe according to Genesis 1 God is eternal, He has always been and always will be God. We believe God created man and woman and according to Genesis 2 God breaths into them the breath of life, making man a living soul, a soul that lasts eternally. We believe according to Genesis 3 and Romans 5 man is born with a nature to sin. We believe "to sin" is to "miss the mark" God set as the standard in His holiness. We believe according to Romans 3 "all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." We believe God knew man would choose sin and according to 1 Peter 1, God had a plan to redeem man from the penalty of sin. We believe according to John 1, Jesus is God's son that came as God in human form to live a sinless life on earth. We believe Jesus, having lived a sinless life, chose to accept death on the cross according to John 10 to become the justification for man's sin. We believe Jesus remained in the grave after His physical death for 3 days and rose alive according to Luke 24. We believe Jesus fulfilled the will of God by giving His life on the cross to exhibit God's grace and mercy towards man and to demonstrate God's love towards man according to Ephesians 2, and that man's soul can have eternal life by God's grace through man's faith in Jesus' death, burial and resurrection.
