Full Version Declaration of Faith

Our beliefs:

• We believe in the Holy Scriptures as the verbally inspired Word of God.
• The eternal Godhead exists in three persons—the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, truly God and truly man.
• Mankind was created in God’s image, but lost sinless innocence through the sin of the first man, Adam.
• Because of sin, no human can enter the kingdom of God until he is born again of the Holy Spirit.
• Jesus Christ died as a substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of the whole world.
• Whoever believes  in Him and in faith accepts His sacrificial death receives a new, spiritual nature and eternal life and standing as a child of God.
• Christ rose again in the same body that had been crucified and bodily ascended to Heaven.
• Those who have trusted Jesus Christ for salvation do, at death, pass immediately into His presence.
• The souls of deceased unbelievers, the lost, pass into eternal punishment and misery.
• We believe in the personal, bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ for His church, the true body of believers.

• It is the mission of the people of God to preach the Gospel throughout the world—we place special emphasis in evangelizing children.
