Our Beliefs

I. The Doctrine of The Scriptures

We believe the Holy Scriptures to be the plenary-verbally inspired Word of God, authoritative, infallible and inerrant in the original writings.

II. The Doctrine of the Godhead

We believe in one God. eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, identical in nature, equal in power and glory and having the same attributes and perfections.

III. The Doctrine of Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary; that He died on the cross a representative and substitutionary sacrifice to redeem us from the guilt, penalty and power of sin and from the dominion of Satan; and that He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of God the Father, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.I

IV. The Doctrine of The Holy Spirit

We believe in the Person and Deity of the Holy Spirit, and that during this age as Representative of the Godhead, He convicts man, regenerates the believing sinner, granting him repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ. He indwells, guides, instructs and empowers the believer for godly living and service.

V. The Doctrine of Man

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, became alienated from God and is totally unable to remedy its lost condition.

VI. The Doctrine of Salvation

We believe that by the shedding of Jesus Christ’s blood and His resurrection, a once for all offering for sin was made, and that all those who show repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness of sins, are born again of the Holy Spirit and thus become the children of God. We also believe in the eternal security of the truly born again believer and of the necessity for that believer to abide in Christ and to grow in grace.

VII. The Doctrine of Satan

We believe in the personality of a literal devil who is the enemy of God and His creation and whose destiny is everlasting punishment.

VIII. The Doctrine of Church Ordinances

We believe that water baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age. They do not, however, convey regenerating grace (as in baptism), or a sacrifice for sin (as in the Lord’s Supper, involving change in the substance of the bread and wine).

IX. The Doctrine of the Church

We believe that the true Church is composed of all who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have become the children of God; living together in fellowship with all other believers that make up the Body of which Christ is Head. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church, and that the local Church should be theocratic, seeking through prayer and the Word, direction from its only Mediator, Jesus Christ.

X. The Doctrine of The End of the Age

We believe in the personal, premillennial and imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in the air for all those who make up His Body, the Church, and His coming again to earth with His saints to set up His earthly kingdom.

XI. The Doctrine of The Final State

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting life, of the unbelieving to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
