WHAT WE BELIEVE
All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Statement of Faith
We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons, the trinty, that is made up
of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly
man, lived a sinless life, and died in our place as a sacrifice for all the sins of mankind, was
buried, arose from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.
We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need
for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide Who lives in every believer.
We believe that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God , the handbook and sole authority for
a spiritual life of faith.
We believe that man is made in God’s image, but that through the disobedience of the first
man and woman, Adam and Eve, mankind fell from grace, causing all men to become sinners and
in need of salvation.
We believe that salvation is a free gift received through repentance of sin, the breaking of God’s
laws, and comes through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion
in water after salvation.
We believe that through prayer every believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ
as the Head.
We believe that those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven while those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in Hell
We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that Jesus Christ will literally return to earth.
We believe in the separation of church and state, but not in separation of God and government.
Christians are to be salt and light in society.

Our vision here at Kingston is that we exist to bring glory to God by pointing others to Jesus Christ in our teaching, worship and lifestyle. It is our goal to lead in such a way that others want to cultivate a deeper and purer love of Christ.
