My Statement of Faith

As a Christian (Christ Follower) I believe in the following:

the 39 books of the Old Testament
the 27 books of the New Testament
66 books in all known as The Bible

I believe that The Bible is the living Word of God inspired by the Holy Spirit
and that the original documents are completely without error. It is the supreme and final word
on all matters in which it speaks.

There is only one true God, eternally existing in three persons- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ is the Living Word made flesh through the miracle of his conception by the Holy Spirit and virgin birth.  He is perfect Deity and true humanity united in one person forever.

I believe that Jesus Christ suffered and died on the cross, was buried, and rose from the dead on the third day.  Jesus is now sitting at the right hand of the Father interceding for everyone who accepts Him as their Lord and Savior.

I believe that humanity was originally made in the image of God but sinned by choosing to disobey Him.  Now all of humanity suffers under the consequence of that choice and is no longer inherently good.  There is nothing any human can do to be worthy of God's acceptance.  Only through the Grace of Salvation through Jesus Christ can anyone be redeemed.

I believe in the Church as described in The Bible: elders and deacons, tithing, baptism, and training.

I believe in the Great Commission to share the good news of Jesus Christ to the whole world.  For the world is not as it was meant to be and Jesus Christ will return to restore all things to Himself.
