Overflow’s Statement of Faith:

We Believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. The Holy Spirit moved upon the writers of the Old and New Testament and inspired them as they wrote the Words of God.

We Believe there is One God, eternally existent in three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

God the Father – Creator of all things.  By His Word, all things were created and through the power of His Word, all things are held together.  He sent His Son Jesus to redeem people unto Himself.

Jesus Christ – the only begotten Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. He lived a sinless life and performed many miracles.  He redeemed us by His atoning death through His shed blood.  He ascended to the right hand of the Father, and He will personally return in power and glory.  There is no other name given under heaven by which man must be saved.

Holy Spirit – inspired the writers of the Bible, convicts the world of sin teaches us all things, and brings to our remembrance the Word of God.

We Believe in the total inability of people to save themselves and are in need of a Savior.  People can only be saved through a complete commitment to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and being regenerated by the Holy Spirit.

We Believe in the present infilling of the Holy Spirit to all believers who desire it.  The Holy Spirit’s ministry to the body of Jesus Christ is the power to live and witness and to go forth to proclaim the gospel and to make disciples.  Power for us to cultivate a Christ-like character through the fruit of the Spirit and to build-up and to mature the church through the miraculous gifts and ministries in this present day.

We Believe in the church as a family of believers brought together by the Holy Spirit as a visible part of the body of Christ, who faithfully proclaim the whole Word of God, properly administer the sacraments (baptism, communion, marriage), and humbly submit themselves to discipline, all for the glory of God.

We Believe in the sacred covenant of marriage between one man and one woman and place importance on training children to develop godly character and discover their godly calling.

We Believe every man and woman shall give an account of all their deeds in this earthly life before the judgment seat of Christ.  Those found with their names in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be with God in His glory, those without their names written will be eternally separated from God.
