Statement of Faith

There exists only one God, creator and sustainer of all things,  infinitely  perfect and eternally co-existing in three persons—Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The scriptures , both Old and New Testaments are the inspired and trustworthy Word of God, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of human beings and the final authority for all matter about   which it speaks.

Human nature derives from two historical persons, male and female, created in God’s image.  The were created perfect, but they sinned, plunging themselves and all human   beings into sin, guilt, suffering and death.

The death of Jesus Christ and his bodily resurrection provides a substitution for us , and the only ground for justification, forgiveness and salvation for all who believe.  Only those who trust in Him alone are born of the Holy Spirit and are true members of the church; only they will spend eternity with Christ. 

The Holy spirit is the agent of regeneration and renewal for believers in Jesus Christ.  He makes the presence of Jesus Christ real in believers, and He comforts, guides, convicts and enables believers to live in ways that honors Christ.

Ministry to persons acknowledges the complexity of humans as physical, psychological, social and spiritual beings.  The ultimate goal of Christian counseling is to help others move to a personal wholeness, interpersonal competence, mental stability and spiritual maturity.
