Dr. Dempsey's Personal Statement of Faith
- The Bible is the inspired and authoritative Word of God, the sole authority for faith and practice.
- There is only one God who exists as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and revealed himself to man.
- Man is separated from God due to sin.
- God's Son, Jesus Christ, was born of the Virgin Mary, died on the cross for man's sins, and bodily rose again on the third day, ascended to the Father and will return to take his church.
- Man can only be saved, have eternal life in heaven with God, by repenting of sin, and by faith, accepting Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. This salvation is provided by the grace of God. Man cannot be saved through his own efforts or works.
- We believe in the Holy Spirit who indwells believers and enables them to live a godly life.
- We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
- We respect all Christian denominations and look forward to the unity that will come as we worship Christ in heaven together.
