Doctrinal Statements


The Scriptures:

We believe the Scriptures to contain the sixty six books of the Old and New Testaments. They were supernaturally and verbally inspired by God and are authoritative, inerrant, and infallible. They are the complete and final revelation of he will of God for man, and are the supreme authority in faith and life and are given to us in the Authorized 1611 version of the King James Bible. ( II Tim. 3:15-17; Jer. 36; II Peter 1:19-21)

One True God:

We believe in one God: eternal, omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent, existing as three Persons; the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. They are one in nature, attributes, power and glory. (Gen. 1:1; Deut. 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30)

Deity of Jesus Christ:

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:34-35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (ICorinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection ( John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return to the earth in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11-16).

Holy Spirit:

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit as a divine Person, equal with God the Father and God the Son; that He baptizes all believers into the body of Christ at salvation; that He indwells, seals, guides, teaches, bears witness, sanctifies, convicts and helps the believer. (Ephesian 1:13-14, 4:30, 5:18; I Corinthians 2:12-14, 3:16; Romans 8:13-14.)

Man:

We believe that man was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27); that he sinned (Romans 3:23); and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God (Isaiah 59:2) causing every person to be born with a sinful nature and under condemnation to eternal judgment.

Salvation:

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scripture (ICorinthians 15:3-4) as a substitutionary sacrifice (Hebrews 10:12-14) and rose again for our justification. All who believe in Him are justified through faith wholly apart from human merit and works (Ephesian 2:8-9).

Security of the Believer:

We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again by the Holy Spirit through the Word of God and thereby become the children of God and are eternally secure. (Ephesians 1:13-14; I Peter 1:5; John 10:27)

The Great Commission:

We believe that it is the responsibility of all Christians to go out and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to every creature. (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8)

The Church:

We believe the church is an organized group of born again believers gathered together to carry out the Great Commission and to encourage and challenge the children of God to live a sanctified life according to the Scriptures. (Matthew 28:19-20; Ephesians 1:22-23)

Last Things:

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all the dead, the saved to eternal life with God and the unsaved to eternal death in a conscious suffering and woe in a literal place called Hell. (Revelation 20:14)
