Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired and the only infallible, authoritative Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16).
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).
We believe in
the full deity and full humanity of Christ (John 1:1–14; Hebrews 1:3–5, 2:5–18),
His virgin birth (Luke 1:26–38),
His sinless life (2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15),
His miracles (John 10:31–38),
His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood (Matthew 26:28; 1 Peter 2:24),
His bodily resurrection (John 20:1–31; Acts 1:1–3; 1 Corinthians 15:1–8),
His ascension to the right Hand of the Father (Acts 1:4–11),
His present rule as Head of the Church (Ephesians 1:22, 5:23; Colossians 1:18), and
His personal return in power and glory (Revelation 19:11–16; 22:7–21).
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (2 Corinthians 3:17–18).
We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of all who are separated from God by sin and rebellion (John 14:15–21; Romans 8:1–11; 1 Corinthians 12:3).
PfP Statement of Faith- taken from EFCA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) site 5-2-16
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are lost unto damnation (Matthew 25:41–46), and they that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life (Matthew 25:31–40; 1 Corinthians 15:42–57).
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, with equality across races, genders, and classes (Colossians 3:11).
We also agree with this Statement, used with permission from Alisa Childers:
WE BELIEVE the Scripture of the Old and New Testament are inspired by God and inerrant in the original text.
Scripture is the supreme and final authority in faith and life. Scripture is useful to believers for teaching,
reproof, correction, and training in righteousness.
WE BELIEVE in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, atoning death through
His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, and His ascension to the right hand of the Father.
WE BELIEVE in the deity of the Holy Spirit as a person distinct from the Father and Son, and possessing all of
the divine attributes. He exalts Christ, convicts people of sin, and enlightens and empowers believers and the
church in worship, evangelism, and service.
WE BELIEVE that man was created in the image of God and that the whole human race fell in the fall of the
first Adam and was alienated from God. Only through faith, trusting in Christ alone for salvation, which was
made possible by His death and resurrection, are we reconciled to God.
WE BELIEVE the Lord Jesus is coming again to this earth, personally, bodily, and visibly to consummate
history and the eternal plan of God.
WE BELIEVE in eternal judgment for all: salvation for those reconciled with Christ, damnation for those with
enmity to God.
WE BELIEVE that God determines what holy sexuality is, and has made clear His desire through Scripture.
We believe that marriage is a spiritual and civil institution established by God between one man and one woman, and that all other sexual activity is immoral.
WE BELIEVE that abortion is shedding the blood of the innocent and is an immoral act.
