What We Believe

   
  • We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired of God, and inerrant in the original writing, and that they are of supreme and final authority of faith and life. (2 Tim 3:16-17, I Pet 1:23-25, Jn 10:34-35; 17:17)
  • We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Jn 10:30; 14:26 , Mt 28:19, I Cor 8:6, I Jn 5:7-8) 
  • We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, and born of a virgin, Mary, and is true God and true man. (Jn 1:1-5, 14-18; 14:1-8, Col 1:16-20, Mt 1:18-25) 
  • We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also that spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and in the case of those who reach the age of moral responsibility, are sinners in thought, word and deed. (Gen 1:31; 8:21, Ps 51:5, Eph 2:1-3, Pr 22:15, Jer 17:9) 
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitution sacrifice and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood. (Jn 3:16-17; 14:16, Heb 9:22; 10:10, Col 1:22, I Pet 1:19) 
  • We believe that biblical marriage is between one man and one woman and that a sexual relationship is to be expressed only between a married man and woman. (Gen 2:24; 5:2, Mt 5:28; 19:5, Eph 5:31, Heb 13:4, I Cor 7:2, Rom 1:26-28, I Tim 1:10) 
  • We believe in the “Eternal Security” of the believer, that it is impossible for one born into the family of God ever to be lost. (Jd 24, Jn 3:15-16; 10:28-29b, Eph 4:30, Rom 8:38-39) 
  • We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present life there as High Priest and Advocate. (Lk 24:1-53, I Thes 4:13-18, Acts 1:1-11) 
  • We believe in “that blessed hope” – the personal, pre-millenial, pre-tribulational, and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, when the church will be “gathered together unto Him.” (Tt 2:12-13, I Thes 14:14-18, Rev 20:1-22:21) 
  • We believe in the literal fulfillment of the prophecies and promises of the Scriptures, which foretell and assure the future regeneration and restoration of Israel as a nation. (Ez 36:25-26; 37:6-10, Zech 12:10; 13:1; 14:3,  Jer 16:15-16) 
  • We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become the children of God. (I Jn 2:26-27; 4:15; 5:1, Eph 1:13; 4:3, II Cor 1:21-22) 
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost. (I Cor 15:16-17; 51-52, II Cor 5:2, Rom 8:1, 23, Rev 20:11-15, I Jn 3:2) 
  • We believe that the scriptural ordinances of the church are Baptism (immersion) and the Lord’s Supper. That baptism should be administered to the believers only as a symbol of their belief in the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, as a testimony to the world of that belief and of their death, burial, and resurrection with Him. That the Lord’s Supper should be partaken by believers only to show forth His death, till He comes. (Rom 6:4, I Cor 11:23-28)
