Statement of faith

The Scriptures

We believe the Old and New Testaments to be plenary, verbally inspired by God, inerrant in the original writings, and the supreme and final authority
in faith and life. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21)

The Godhead

We believe the Godhead eternally exists in the three Persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three Persons are one God having precisely the same nature, attributes, and perfections. (Matthew 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14)

The Lord Jesus Christ

We believe in:  
(a) His eternal existence as God. (John 1:1)
(b) His incarnation by means of the Virgin Birth. (Matthew 1:23)
(c) His death on the cross as the substitutionary atonement for sin. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
(d) His literal, bodily resurrection from the dead.
(John 20:20)
(e) His present ministry of intercession in heaven. (Hebrews 7:25)
(f) His personal return to earth.
(Matthew 24:30, Rev. 19:11-13)

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Godhead, convicts men of sin, regenerates, baptizes, indwells, seals, and sets apart believers unto a holy life;  that He keeps and empowers believers day by day; that He is the Teacher of the Word of God and the Guide of our daily life. (Acts 5:3-4, 1 Corinthians 6:11, John 16:8-11)


We believe:
(a) Man was created innocent and pure. (Gen. 2:7, 3:19)
(b) Adam fell through the sin of disobedience. (Gen. 3:6-13)
(c) Therefore, all men are corrupted in body, mind, and spirit. (Romans 3:23)
(d) Therefore, all are in need of redemption. (Romans 3:10)


We believe:
(a) It is by grace, a free gift of God apart from works. (Eph. 2:8)
(b) It requires repentance--turning
from your way to God's way. (Mark 2:17)
(c) It is through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. (Gal. 2:16)
(d) All who receive Him are regenerated by the Holy Spirit and become the children of God. (John 1:12)
(e) True salvation will be manifested by a changed life.
(2 Cor. 5:17)

The Future

We believe:
(a) In a pre-tribulation rapture of the Church.
(1 Thes. 1:10, 5:9)
(b) In the personal, visible, bodily, premillennial return of Jesus Christ to earth. (Rev. 1:7, Matthew 24:30)
(c) In the bodily resurrection of the just to eternal abode in the glory of His presence. (Luke 14:14, John 5:28-29)
(d) In the bodily resurrection of the unjust to judgement and everlasting conscious punishment in the Lake of Fire.
(Rev. 20:11-15)
