Faith Statement

We embrace the same doctrinal statement as the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. We believe:

  • The Bible to be the infallible Word of God, that it is His holy and inspired Word, and that it is of supreme and final authority.
  • In one God, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 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.
  • In using every modern means of communication available to us to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.
