Scripture

We believe that the Scripture, 66 books, of the Old and New Testament are inerrant and verbally inspired in the original manuscripts by the living God, were written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, that they are God's complete and final word of truth and are the supreme, final and only infallible authority for doctrine, faith and conduct.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 2 Peter 1 :21 

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Godhead who convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. At conversion, He regenerates, indwells, seals and baptizes the believer into the Body of Christ. Subsequently, by the Scriptures, He conforms the believer increasingly to the image of Christ and empowers him for spiritual service.

 

1 Corinthians 12:13, John 16:8-11, Romans 8:9, Ephesians 1: 13

Salvation

We believe that, because of the universal result of sin, all responsible human beings are dead in trespasses and sins, are lost, condemned, and this position and condition is changed only for those who trust Christ as Savior and are thus saved from sin and death. We believe that salvation from sin and eternal condemnation is only by grace through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ by His death and resurrection, that salvation is not to be works but that good works and holy living are the results of salvation.

John 3:16-17, John 14:6, Romans 10:9-10, Ephesians 2:8-9

God

We believe in one God, eternally coexistent of three persons in one essence as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit; that each person of the Godhead is separate and distinct with the same attributes of omnipotence, omniscience, and omnipresence and is perfect in holiness and righteousness.

 

Genesis 1:26, Deuteronomy 6:4, John 1:18 

Humanity & Sin

We believe that man was created by God in God's own image, as recorded in Genesis, that Adam sinned entirely of His own volition and responsibility, that Adam as the progenitor of the entire human race transmitted sin and death on and into the whole humanity, and all are born sinners with a corrupt and sinful nature and are spiritually dead.

 

Genesis 1:26, Romans 3:23, Romans 3:9, Romans 5:12,

Psalm 51:5

End Times​

We believe that Jesus Christ will make a bodily return to usher in New Creation and God's design for eternity will be carried out. 

2 Timothy 4:1, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17, Daniel 9:25-27. Revelation 20:12-15 Luke 16:24

Jesus

We believe in the person, work, promises, and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Son of God. Jesus made one complete sacrifice for all mankind in his finished work on the cross. After 3 days in the grave, Jesus was resurrected by God, conquering the reign of sin and death for all who believe in him. Jesus is alive in heaven where He is in authority of all things and mediator of His people.

Genesis 1:26, John 1:18, 1 Corinthians 15:14-17, Hebrews 9:22, 1 Timothy 2:5

Church

We believe that the Church of Jesus Christ is both visible and invisible. Invisibly, it is the Body of Christ, of which Christ is the Head and of which every regenerated person is a member. Visibly, it is a local assembly of redeemed persons. ​

We believe that the corporate church on earth is God's witness and testimony to proclaim the Gospel to the entire world, that the Lord's Supper (communion) and baptism by immersion in water are divine institutions given by the Word of God to be maintained in this age.

Matthew 28:18-20, 1 Corinthians 11:25-26 , Acts 2:41, Acts 8:36-38 

Satan

We believe that Satan is a personal, powerful and reigning dignitary, that he is the prince of power of all evil, the spirit that works in the hearts and minds of all the unsaved, and is the adversary of God and the saved, and shall be cast into the Lake of Fire eternally.
