What We Believe
FOCUS Statement of Faith
We believe in the central historical truths of Christianity as revealed in the Bible:
-The unity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the Godhead.
-The sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgment.
-The divine inspiration and entire trustworthiness of Holy Scripture, as originally given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
-The universal sinfulness and guilt of all men since the fall, rendering them subject to God's wrath and condemnation.
-Redemption from the guilt, penalty, dominion and pollution of sin, solely through the sacrificial death (as our representative and substitute) of the Lord Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God.
-The bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead and his ascension to the right hand of God the Father.
-The presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration.
-The justification of the sinner by the grace of God alone through faith alone.
-The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
-The one holy universal Church which is the body of Christ and to which all true believers belong.
-The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
