Statement of Faith

The Holy Bible (2 Tim 3:16) "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness."

Heaven is a free gift. It cannot be earned or deserved. (Eph 2:8-9) "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (2 Tim 1:9) "…(God) hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace."

Man is a sinner and cannot save himself. (Isa 64:6) "…all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags…"  (Rom 3:10-12) "…There is none righteous, no, not one… there is none that doeth good, no, not one."

God is a spirit that never has nor will change.  God is both loving and just. If someone dies without accepting the atonement Jesus offered a literal Hell awaits him or her. (John 4:24) "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." (Heb 9:27) "…It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:" (Matt 25:41) "Then shall he (Jesus) say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire…"

Jesus Christ is the Son of God and is the only way to heaven. There are no other mediators. (John 8:24) "I (Jesus) said, …you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins." (1 Tim 2:5) "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;"

True Faith is not simply believing that Jesus exists. (James 2:19) "You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe-- and tremble!" Most people have faith but only a few will go to heaven. (Matt 7:13-14) "...Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (eternal life), and only a few find it." (NIV)

True Faith is trusting in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life. (Rom 10:13) "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

Baptism does not wash away sins. It is an outward expression of our personal relationship to God through Jesus Christ. (Acts 10:43) "…through His (Jesus') name, whoever believes (trusts) in Him will receive remission of sins." Baptism symbolizes what has already taken place in our hearts. (Rom 6:4-5) "Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:"
