What We Believe
We believe the 66 books of the Bible is God's written revelation to all mankind. It is verbally inspired in every word, absolutely inerrant, infallible and perfectly preserved today. We believe that it is the final authority of truth for Christian beliefs and living. (Psalm 12:6-7, Psalm 119:160, I Peter 1:25, II Peter 1:20-21.)
We believe that there is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (I John 5:7)
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His Virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return and power and glory.
We believe that during this present age the Holy Spirit glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ by convicting, regenerating, indwelling, sanctifying, instructing, guiding, sealing and empowering believer to live godly lives and to serve the church. (John 14:26, John 16:7-15, Acts 1:8, Ephesians 1:13, Romans 15:13)
We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin voluntary and is therefore lost and separated from God. Only through faith in Jesus Christ and the regeneration of the Holy Spirit can salvation and eternal life can be obtained. (I Corinthians 15:45-49, Titus 3:5-7)
We believe that salvation is completely by God's grace and not by human merit or works. It is received by personal faith in Jesus Christ alone. We believe that all those redeemed and saved are kept by God's power and are thus secure in Christ forever. (Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 10:9-13, Romans 8:35-39)
We believe in that Blessed Hope, the personal, imminent, pre-tribulational and pre-millennial coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for his redeemed ones; and in his subsequent return to earth, with his saints, to establish his millennial kingdom. (I Thessalonians 4:16, 17 and Revelation 20:6)
We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; the saved unto the resurrection of life and the unsaved unto the resurrection of damnation. (I Corinthians 15:50-53, II Corinthians 5:1-4 and Revelation 20:11-15)
We believe that all who put their faith in Jesus Christ are immediately placed by the Holy Spirit into one united spiritual Body, the church, of which Christ is the Head. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by reaching people with the gospel, building its members up in the faith, instruction of the Word of God, fellowship, keeping the ordinances and serving one-another.
