Holy Bible

We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the inspired word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible and God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Matthew 5:18; John 16:12-13).

 

Triune God

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in 3 persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinthians 13:14). 

 

Jesus Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men (John 1:1,2,14; Luke 1:35). 

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross and, that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead (Romans 3:24,25; 1 Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:3-5). 

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God. Jesus is our High Priest, Intercessor, and Advocate (Acts 1:9, 10; Hebrews 9:24; 7:25; Romans 8:34; 1 John 2:1-2).

 

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and, that He is the Supernatural Mediator in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption (John 16:8-11; 2 Corinthians 3:6; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:13-14). 

We believe that He is the Divine Teacher who guides believers into all truth. The Holy Spirit shapes all believers into the image of Jesus Christ. (John 16:13; 1 John 2:20, 27; Ephesians 5:18)

 

SALVATION

We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. As stated in Romans 10:9 if we confess with our mouths and believe in our hearts that Jesus Christ is Lord we will be saved (Ephesians 2:8-10; John 1:12; Rom 10:9, Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:18-19).

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam's sin the humanity fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became separated from God; and, that man is totally depraved, and, of himself, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22-23; Ephesians 2:1-3,12).

 

ASSURANCE

We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God's power and all are eternally  secure in Christ forever (John 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Romans 8:1,38,39; 1 Corinthians 1:4-8; 1 Peter 1:5). 

We believe that it is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God's Word. (Romans 13:13-14; Galatians 5:13; Titus 2:11-15).

 

EVANGELIZING

We believe that it is the Christian responsibility to witness by life and by word to the truths of Holy Scripture and to seek to proclaim the Gospel to all mankind (Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 5:19-20).

 

BAPTISM/COMMUNION

We recognize that Water Baptism has no saving merit. It is our belief that the scriptural method of Water Baptism is immersion. It is observed but once, and is symbolic of the believers union with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ commanded the believers to partake in communion to commemorate His broken Body and Shed Blood, for the forgiveness of sins. The Lord's Supper shall be open to all born again believers (Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:9-13; Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 11:23-33).

THE CHURCH

We believe that the Church, which is the body and the bride of Christ, is a Spiritual Body made up of all born-again believers (Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:25,27; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; 2 Corinthians 11:2).
