The Bible, God’s Word, declares that the church is “the pillar and ground of the truth”. God’s Word also states that the “wisdom of God” is to be made known by the church.
To this end, our foremost desire is to follow the Biblical command of preaching the gospel to those who do not yet know Christ while discipling all believers that God grants to join our local fellowship. By believing the Bible to be the inerrant Word of God, applicable in all details of our lives, we are desiring to know Jesus Christ better. The Bible speaks of this “knowing Christ”, as the process of being conformed to the likeness of Jesus Christ, which is the ultimate hope for every believer. At Faith there are a number of ways that individuals can join in meeting with us. We have weekly Sunday morning services, prayer meetings and small groups. In addition we have meetings for anyone wishing to investigate who Jesus is, why He came and what it means to follow him.
Holding the Bible as the complete and only divine revelation, we strongly believe that God is eternally one and also eternally the Father, the Son, and the Spirit, the three being distinct but not separate. We hold that Christ is both the complete God and the perfect man. Without abandoning His divinity, He was conceived in the womb of a human virgin, lived a genuine human life on earth, and died a vicarious all-inclusive death on the cross. After three days He resurrected bodily and has ascended to the heavens.
We look to His imminent return with the kingdom of God, by which He will reign over the earth in the millennium and in eternity. We confess that the third of the Trinity, the Spirit, is equally God. All that the Father has and is, is expressed by the Son; all that the Son has and is, is realized as the Spirit. We further believe that mankind is in need of God’s salvation. Though we were absolutely unable to fulfill the heavy demands of God’s righteousness, holiness, and glory, Christ fulfilled all the requirements through His death on the cross.Because of Christ’s death, God has forgiven us of our sins, justified us by making Christ our righteousness, and reconciled us to Himself.
Based on Christ’s redemption, God regenerates the redeemed with His Spirit to consummate His salvation that they may become His children. Now possessing God’s life and nature, the believers enjoy a daily salvation in His Body in this age and the eternal salvation in the coming age and in eternity. In eternity we will dwell with God in the New Jerusalem, the consummation of God’s salvation of His elect.
