Statement of Faith

The Bible

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

We believe that the Bible is sufficient for all matters pertaining to a life of righteousness and Godliness. It is our primary source for teaching, reproof, correcting, and training.

God

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to power and glory.

Salvation

We believe that salvation is a gift of grace to be received and not something that can be earned by the works of man.

We believe  that salvation (the forgiveness of sins) and new life comes to a person who acknowledges that:

  • They are sinful before a Holy God.
  • They cannot do anything to earn, merit or deserve salvation.
  • Jesus Christ is fully God.
  • He paid the price for sin in His sacrificial death on the cross.
  • He rose again victorious.
  • And that believing these things put their faith in Him alone.

We believe that a regenerate person will bear spiritual fruit in his life as a result of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

Resurrection

We believe in the resurrection of the saved unto the resurrection of life.

Holy Spirit

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly victorious life.

Unity of Believers

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

A Day To Mourn or Embrace?

Is it “Happy Memorial Day” or do we need to tip-toe around celebrating? Am I supposed to be happy or sad? I know it can be confusing, right?

Honor The Fallen, Lead The Living

I asked the packed church service in California “Are you a leader?” A few businessmen, city officials, and the pastor held up their hands.  “I’m sorry, maybe some of you didn’t hear the question,” I responded.  “Are you a leader?”  The hands began to raise slowly until every person had signified “yes” to the question.  They got the point:  we are all leaders.

Thank You For Your Service – Now Go Away

It is time that we stop paying lip service to the sacrifices of those who have made America great and begin to honor those sacrifices by once again getting out of the way of those unalienable rights of “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” To do so is the only path forward. Anything less will crush the very people we seek to protect.
