WORD OF LIFE 

                   "CHANGING LIVES THROUGH GOD'S WORD"                       

   What We Believe                                                                            
That the word of God.....Bible alone is the word of God, fully inspired, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and having supreme authority in all matters of faith and life.

The Trinity.....there is one living and true God, externally existing in three Persons. They are equal in every divine perfection and they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.

God the Father.....God the Father is the infinite, external and almighty personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love, and is the first Person of the Trinity. He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of people and He saves from sin and death all who comes to Him in repentance and faith through Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ.....Jesus Christ is God's only begotten Son, was conceived by the Holy Spirit and is the second Person of the Trinity. He was miraculously born of a virgin, lived a sinless life and performed miracles. We affirm His atoning death through his shed blood, resurrection and ascension into heaven. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God the Father and Humanity.

The Holy Spirit.....the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity and is sent from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ and endows each believer with spiritual gifts for ministry to the family of God and the world.

Salvation.....the central purpose of God's revelation in the Bible is to call all people into awareness of their sin, the availability of God's grace, and the need for repentance and faith that results in complete forgiveness and fellowship with God. Those who call on the Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness, believe in His resurrection and receive Him as their Savior are granted salvation, forgiveness of their sin and are regenerated by the Holy Spirit into a new life in Christ. Salvation is based solely on the grace and mercy of God, and is not the result of human deeds or goodness.

Baptism.....the immersion of a believer in water in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Water Baptism is an outward sign of an inward working....does not constitute salvation, but is a public confession of faith that a person has already experienced salvation.
