Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith

We believe that the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testament is the inerrant and infallible word of God.  It was given by inspiration and it is the guideline by which Christians should live their lives.

We believe that there is only one God, creator of heaven and earth, and in His Son Jesus Christ, who gave His life for us that we may have eternal life.

We believe that the Holy Spirit of God is divine and convicts us of our sins, of righteousness and judgment, and allows us to understand God’s truth as it is revealed in scripture. We believe that the Holy Spirit lives in us, and empowers us for service and worship.

We believe that we are created in God’s image, but as humans we are sinners who fell from grace, and are therefore under God’s condemnation.  We understand that the only remedy for our sins is salvation through faith in Jesus, and “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”  We believe that salvation is a free gift to all who accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

We believe that as Christians our character and conduct should be consistent with the Bible, as it is our supreme authority that provides us ethical and moral principles for conduct in and outside of our academic community.
