The Triune God
We believe God is holy, eternal, loving, all-wise, sovereign and immutable. He is worthy of worship, obedience and service. We believe in the tri-unity of God, expressed in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each co-equal and co-eternal with the other. (Deut. 4:35, Isa. 45:5, Psa. 145:5, Lev. 11:45, Deut. 6:4, Mal.3:6, II Cor. 13:4, I Tim. 2:5, Heb. 9:14, John 5:23; 17:3, Jude 25.)
The Holy Scripture
We believe in the plenary verbal inspiration and authority of the Holy Scriptures. The scriptures are defined as the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament and are infallible and inerrant. We believe that God has providentially preserved His Holy Scriptures. (Psa. 12:6, 19:7, II Tim.3:16-17, II Peter 1:20-21, II Samuel 23:2, Deut.6:6-9, Isa. 8:20, Matt. 5:18, 24:35, John 5:46-47, Proverbs 13:13.)
We believe in the Genesis account of a creation with man and woman created in God’s image. God’s image in man was marred by Adam’s fall resulting in sin and death passed upon all mankind. (Genesis Chapters 1-3, Matt. 19:4-6, Romans 5:12-19, 3:9-10, 3:22-23, Ecclesiastes 7:20, and Psa. 8:3-8)
Jesus the Christ
We believe in the undiminished deity and true humanity of the Lord Jesus Christ; He was God manifest in the flesh, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and He suffered and died for sinners on the cross as a substitutionary blood sacrifice for the sins of mankind. (John 1:1-3, 14, 5:14, 8:35, 58, 17:5, Luke 2:7, 40, 52, I Timothy 3:16, Romans 5:6-8, I Cor. 15:3-4, I Peter 2:22-24, Hebrews 2:9-14, I John 2:2, 4:14, Ephesians 1:7.)
We believe that Christ bodily rose from the dead on the third day and ascended into Heaven where He now sits at the exalted right hand of God, the Father, as Intercessor and Advocate. (I Cor. 15:3-4, 20, Acts 1:2-10, Romans 8:34, Ephesians 1:20, Hebrews 7:25, 13:20, I John 2:1.)
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the ministry of God, the Holy Spirit; He convicts of sin, baptizes the believer into the Body of Christ, indwells and sanctifies each believer. (Romans 8:9, I Cor. 12:3-5, John 16:8, I Cor. 12:12-14, John 14:16-17, Ephesians 1:13-14, I Thess. 4:3-8, II Thess. 2:13, Ephesians 5:18.)
We believe all men and women are lost through Adam and condemned to separation from God apart from the imputed righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 3:19-25, 4:23-25, 5:1, II Corinthians 5:12-21, Philippians 3:9, Titus 3:7).
We believe sinners are saved by the grace of God through faith in the Person and finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ. At salvation, each person who believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is eternally secure in that salvation. (Ephesians 2:8-9, Hebrews 10:10-12, Romans 10:4, 8:9, I Cor. 12:13, John 14:16-17, Colossians 2:9-10, Titus 3:5, Jude 24, John 10:28, II Timothy 2:13, Ephesians 1:7, John 19:30).
We believe in the everlasting conscious blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious torment of the lost. (Rev. 7:14-17, 14:13, 21:4-8, Matt. 25:41, Luke 16:19-21, Rev. 20:10, 14:10-11, II Thessalonians 1:9)
We believe the Church is the Body of Jesus Christ, made up of all who believe in Him. The Body of Christ is to gather together as local churches according to the pattern of New Testament and doctrine and practice. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will receive His Church unto Himself before the Tribulation Period. (I Cor. 1:2, Eph. 3:5-7, Romans 16:16, I Cor. 12:27, 14:33, 37, II Thess.2:15, I Thess. 4:16-18, Titus 2:13, I Thess. 1:10, Daniel 9:24-27).
We believe in the practice of water baptism of believers and communion of the Lord’s Table. (Matt. 28:19-20, Acts 2:41, 8:37, I Cor. 11:23-33, 10:16)
We believe in the distribution of spiritual gifts by the Holy Spirit to members of the Body of Christ during the Church age. These gifts are to edify and encourage the Body of Christ. ( I Cor. 12-14, Ephesians 4:7-13, II Tim. 3:16-17, II Cor. 12:12, I Cor. 13:8-13)
The End of Days
We believe in the pre-millennial, visible and bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ and Lord of Lords in conjunction with the conversion and blessing of national Israel. (Jeremiah 33:19-26; Romans 11:25-27; Revelation 1:7; 7:4-8; 19:11-15; Zechariah 12:9-10; 13:1; 14:1-4; Daniel 9:24-27)
We believe in the person of Satan, the opposer of God’s will and plan. His intent is destructive and his method is falsehood. He has enormous influence in this world in seeking to limit the gospel. He will suffer the torment of the Lake of Fire for eternity. (Job 1:6-12; 2:4-5; Ezekiel 28:12-19; Mark 4:15; John 8:44; 1Thessalonians 2:19; 1 Peter 5:8-9; Revelation 12:9; 20:10)
We believe in the distribution of spiritual gifts by the Holy Spirit to members of the Body of Christ during the Church Age. These gifts are to edify and encourage the Body of Christ. Certain miraculous gifts served their purpose in establishing the church during the ACTS period and have been discontinued with the completion of the New Testament scripture. (1 Corinthians 12-14; Ephesians 4:7-13; 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
