What We Believe

Below is our Statement of Faith, which is that of the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA):

Statement of Faith

GOD

We believe in one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.


THE BIBLE

We believe that God has spoken in the Scriptures through the words of human authors. As the verbally inspired Word of God, the Bible is without error in the original writings and is the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of mankind and the ultimate authority.


MANKIND

We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image, but they sinned when tempted by Satan. Humans are sinners by nature and by choice, separated from God and under His wrath. Only through God's saving work through Jesus Christ can we be saved, reconciled, and renewed.

JESUS CHRIST

We believe Jesus Christ is God incarnate: fully God and fully man, one Person in two natures. He was conceived through the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life.  He was crucified, shedding His blood as our substitute, the perfect and all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins. He arose bodily from the dead and ascended into Heaven, now sitting at the right hand of God as our intercessor. His atoning death and victorious resurrection are the only grounds for our salvation. 


THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts the world of its guilt. He regenerates sinners, and in Him they are baptized into union with Christ and become children in the family of God.

 

THE CHURCH

We believe the true church is made up of all who have been justified by God's grace through faith alone in Christ.

CHRISTIAN LIVING

We believe in obedience to Christ's commission we are to make disciples among all people, always bearing witness to the gospel in word and deed.


CHRIST'S RETURN

We believe in the personal, bodily and premillennial return of our Lord Jesus Christ.


RESPONSE & ETERNAL DESTINY

We believe that God commands everyone everywhere to believe the gospel by turning to Him in repentance and receiving Jesus Christ into their hearts.  We believe that God will raise the dead bodily and judge the world, sending the unbeliever to eternal condemnation and punishment in Hell, while sending the believer to eternal blessedness and joy with the Lord in the new Heaven and new Earth.
