A detailed copy of our “Articles of Faith” is available upon request; the fundamentals of our faith may be summarized as follows:Inspiration and Authority of Scripture – God authored the entire Bible – every word of it and every part of it (2 Timothy 3:16).Deity of Jesus Christ – He is fully God and fully man. He has always existed as God, and will always be God (I John 1:1; John 20:31).Christ’s Virgin Birth – Jesus was born of the virgin Mary (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1) and was sinless (Hebrews 4:15; 1 Peter 2:22).Christ’s Blood Atonement for Sin – Jesus shed His blood as the payment for our sins. Without the shedding of His blood, there is no remission of sin (Hebrews 9:14-28).Christ’s Bodily Resurrection – Jesus arose bodily from the grave, triumphing over death, assuring believers of their future resurrection (I Corinthians 15:1-20).Christ’s Personal Return – Jesus assured His disciples that He will come again (John 14:1-3).
