Lives of Families
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.
We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice.
We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and personal, visible return to earth.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher and Guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the Biblical gifts of the Spirit.
We believe that all people are sinners by nature and by choice and, therefore, are under condemnation; that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit, those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord; that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and power for service, often subsequent to regeneration.
We believe that salvation is by faith in the completed work of the Lord Jesus Christ and as a free gift from God it should not in any way be pursued as if it were by works.
We believe in the universal Church, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members.
We believe in the personal, visible RETURN OF CHRIST to earth and the establishment of His kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous and suffering of the wicked.
In one God, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The Bible to be the infallible Word of God, without error in the original manuscript, that it is His holy and inspired Word and that it is of supreme and final authority.Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, took on Himself all our sins, died and rose again and is seated at the right hand of the Father as our mediator and advocate. That all men everywhere are lost and face the judgment of God and need to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through His shed blood on the cross. That Christ rose from the dead and is coming soon. In holy Christian living, and that we must have concern for the hurts and social needs of our fellowmen. We must dedicate ourselves anew to the service of our Lord and to His authority over our lives.
