What We Believe

We believe the Bible is the Word of God and our teacher is the Holy Spirit.

Doctrinal Statement

We believe the Holy Scripture of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally inspired Word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible and God-breathed (II Tim. 3:16, 17; II Peter 1:20-21; Matt. 5:18).

We believe that the Word of God, illuminated by the Holy Spirit, shall be interpreted literally, grammatically, historically, and dispensationally (I Cor. 2:12-13; John 16:12-15).

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Col. 2:6; John 16:14-15; Deut. 6:4; Acts 1:16).

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 as a representative, (vicarious) substitutionary sacrifice, and that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead (Rom. 3:24,25; I Peter 2:24; Eph. 1:7; I Peter 1:3-5).

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

We believe that the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Godhead, in the present age indwells all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, baptizes them at the new birth into the body of Christ, seals them unto the day of redemption, and that every believer is commanded to be filled with the Holy Spirit. He is the divine Teacher Who guides believers into all truth (I Cor. 3:16,17; I John 16:13).

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam's sin the whole human race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and that man is totally depraved, and of himself utterly unable to redeem his lost condition (Gen. 1:26,27; Rom. 3:22,23, 5:12; Eph. 2:1-3,12).

We believe 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 (Eph. 2:8-10; John 1:12; Eph. 1:7; I Peter 1:18,19).

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

We believe that it is the privilege of the believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God's Word; which, however, clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion to the flesh. (Rom. 13:13,14; Gal. 5:13; Titus 2:11-15).

We believe that spiritual gifts are God-given abilities to born again believers for the purpose of building up the body of Christ. The distribution of these gifts is at the point of salvation by the Holy Spirit. The purpose of these gifts is to glorify God and edify the local church. It is essential that each member develops and employs his spiritual gift(s) for the church to accomplish its task. (Rom. 12:3-8; I Cor. 12:4-11,27-31, 14:1-40; Eph. 4:8-13; I Tim. 4:14; II Tim. 1:6; I Peter 4:10-11). Since these gifts are bestowed by the Lord in order to fulfill specific purposes in God's program, we believe that when the purpose of any gift is fulfilled, that particular gift is terminated (I Cor. 12:11, 13:8-10, 14:21-22; I Tim. 4:20; with Acts 19:11-12; Heb. 2:3-4).

We believe that the church, which is the body and bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism made u of all born again persons in this age irrespective of their affiliation with Christian organizations. It is for the church that Christ now makes intercession, and for whom He will come again (Eph. 1:22-23, 5:25-27; I Cor. 12:12-14; II Cor. 11:2).

We believe that establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures (Acts 14:27, 20:17, 28:32; I Tim. 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-11).

We believe that Satan is a person, the author of sin, and the cause of the Fall; that he is the open and declared enemy of God and man; and that he shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire (Job 1:6,7; Isaiah 14:12-17; Matt. 4:2-11, 25:41; Rev. 20:10).

We believe in that "blessed hope", the personal, imminent, perambulation, and premillennial coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for His redeemed ones; and in His subsequent return to the earth with His saints to establish His millennial kingdom (I Thess. 4:13-18; Zech. 14:4-11; Rev. 19:11-16, 20:1-6; I Thess 1:10, 5:9; Rev. 3:10).

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment (Matt. 15:46; John 5:28,29, 11:25,26; Rev. 20: 5,6,12,13).
