Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith:

I believe:
  • in the sovereign, loving, just, personal, and gracious nature of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in creation, providence, revelation, redemption and final judgment;
  • in the divine inspiration of Scripture, of its unity and infallibility, and hence its complete trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;
  • in the universal sinfulness and guilt of humanity, making us subject to, and deserving of, God’s wrath and condemnation;
  • in the substitutionary sacrifice of the incarnate Son of God as the only and all-sufficient ground of redemption from the guilt and power of sin and from its eternal consequences;
  • in the justification of the sinner solely by the grace of God through faith in Jesus the Christ who suffered, was crucified, died, was buried, and who was physically raised from the dead;
  • in the illuminating, regenerating, indwelling and sanctifying work of God the Holy Spirit;
  • in the priesthood of all believers, who form the universal Church, the Body of which Christ is the Head, and under whose authority we are to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them, and teaching them to observe all that which Christ has taught;
  • the acts of baptism and communion to be the efficacious sign and symbol of God’s grace at work in the Body of Believers;
  • in the imminent, personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory to judge the nations;
  • that I am a redeemed sinner who, by God’s grace, has been called to live and to love in accordance with this statement and to the glory of the One by whose grace I have been saved.

Today, we had a wonderful visit with former missionary colleagues, Ron and Denise Hamme, from Thailand whom we hadn't seen since 2006!...
