Statement of Beliefs
We believe the Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired, and that it is inerrant in the original manuscripts and preserved by God in its verbal, plenary inspiration, so that it is the divinely authoritative standard for every age and every life.
We believe the Godhead exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and that these three are one God.
We believe God is the absolute and sole Creator of the universe, and that creation was by divine feat, not through evolutionary process.
We believe God, by His sovereign choice and out of His love for men, sent Christ into the world to save sinners.
We believe Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man, that He was born of a virgin and that He lived a sinless life. He taught and wrought mighty works, wonders and signs exactly as revealed in the four Gospels. Jesus was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins, and was raised from the dead bodily on the third day. Jesus ascended to the Father’s right hand where He is head of the church and intercedes for believers, and from whence he is coming again personally, bodily, visibly to this earth to set up His millennial kingdom.
We believe since in His death, by His shed blood, the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for sin, redeeming us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. Men are saved and justified on the simple and single ground of the shed blood.
We believe such salvation, with its forgiveness of sins, its impartation of a new nature and its hope of eternal life is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership or man’s effort. Salvation is of pure grace.
We believe a true believer is eternally secure, that he cannot lose his salvation, but that sin may interrupt the joy of his fellowship with God and bring the loving discipline of his Heavenly Father.
We believe all who receive Christ become joint-heirs with Christ; at death, their spirits depart to be with Christ in conscious blessedness. At the rapture, their bodies will be raised to the likeness of the body of His glory and dwell forever in divine presence.
We believe it is the goal of every Christian to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God and the indwelling Spirit.
We believe the Holy Spirit is God and possesses all the divine attributes. He indwells all believers, baptizing and sealing all believers at the moment of their salvation. He fills them in response to confession of sin and repentance.
