Wings of Hope Belief Statement:
We believe the Bible is the inerrant word of God. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin, sent to earth as a sacrifice for the sins of men, who was crucified, died, buried, and rose again, is seated at the right hand of God, and will return to take His followers to heaven for eternity. We believe salvation comes through the acceptance of Jesus Christ as our personal Savior.
