Statement of Christian Faith

 I believe in God the Father, and in God the Son, Jesus Christ, the Father's only begotten, and in God the Holy Spirit, the Comforter and Teacher.  I believe that God is one expressed in three persons.  I believe that God is the Creator of the heavens and the earth.  I believe that Jesus, conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of the Virgin Mary, that He walked this earth teaching all people the way, that He was crucified, died, and was buried.  On the third day, Jesus rose from the dead, and after ministering to many, later ascended to the Father.  I look forward to Jesus' promised return.  I believe that the Holy Spirit has been sent to comfort and guide believers into an understanding of truth.  I believe that forgiveness of sin and salvation come only via the complete work of love done by Jesus through His death, burial, and resurrection suffered on our behalf.
