“Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.There is one body and one Spirit–just as you were called to one hope when you were called–one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” (Ephesians 4:3-6 NIV)
One Body–We believe that everyone who receives the gift of salvation is adopted into, God’s family, which is described in Scripture as the body of Jesus Christ, the Church.One Spirit–We believe that God the Holy Spirit lives permanently in every child of God, teaching, equipping and enabling him to become increasingly more like Jesus.One Hope–We believe Jesus will return to take his Church back to heaven with Him where we will spend eternity in the presence of God.
One Lord–We believe the Lord Jesus Christ, as the God/Man, died on the cross to provide salvation for all mankind and that he was physically raised from the dead.
One Faith–We believe that because of sin, man faces eternal damnation and is unable to save himself, but that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received exclusively through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins.
One Baptism–We believe that baptism is the child of God’s means of identification with Christ and the family of God commanded by Jesus before he returned to heaven.
One God and Father of all–We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
One Authority–We believe the entire Bible to be the literal Word of God, without error in the original writings. It is our divine authority in all matters of faith and life.
“All Scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (II Timothy 3:16-17 NIV).
