About GRACE

Statement of Faith

THE SCRIPTURES

We believe:

  1. The Bible in its entirety to be the inspired Word of God; and
  2. That it is the infallible rule of faith and conduct.

THE GODHEAD

We believe:

  1. The Godhead exists in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; and
  2. These three Persons are one God, having precisely the same nature, attributes, and perfections.

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST

We believe in:

  1. His eternal existence as God;
  2. His incarnation and virgin birth;
  3. His death on the cross as the substitutionary atonement for sin;
  4. His literal, bodily resurrection from the dead;
  5. His present ministry of intercession in heaven; and
  6. His personal, future return to earth.

THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Godhead:

  1. Convicts men of sin, and regenerates, baptizes, indwells, seals, and bestows spiritual gifts;
  2. Keeps and empowers believers day by day; and
  3. Is the Teacher of the Word of God and the Guide for daily living.

MAN

We believe that:

  1. Man was created in the image of God;
  2. Adam fell through the sin of disobedience; and therefore
  3. All mankind needs redemption.

SALVATION

We believe that:

  1. Salvation is by grace, a free gift from God apart from works;
  2. Salvation requires repentance, a turning from one's own way to God's way;
  3. Salvation is through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ;
  4. All who receive Jesus Christ are regenerated by the Holy Spirit, and become the children of God; and
  5. True salvation will be manifested by a changed life.

THE FUTURE

We believe in:

  1. The personal, visible, bodily return of Jesus Christ to earth;
  2. The bodily resurrection of the just to the eternal abode in the glory of God's presence; and
  3. The bodily resurrection of the unjust to the judgment and everlasting punishment in the lake of fire.
