WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that the Bible is the supernaturally inspired Word of God. As such the Bible is inerrant and preserved by God in its verbal, plenary inspiration. That it is the divine authoritative standard for every age and every life.
We believe that the Godhead exists eternally in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – and that these three are one God.
We believe in God as absolute and sole creator of the universe, and that creation was by divine feat, not through evolutionary process.
We believe that God, by His sovereign choice and out of love for men, sent Jesus Christ into the world to save fallen man.
We believe that 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 and recorded in the Scriptures. He was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins, was buried and was raised from the dead bodily on the third day, exactly as recorded in the Scriptures. Later He ascended to the Father’s right hand where He is head of the Church, and as our only mediator and advocate, he intercedes for believers. It is from there that He is coming again personally, bodily, visibly to this earth to set up His millennial kingdom.
We believe that in His death, by His shed blood, the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for sin, to redeem 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 of Jesus Christ.
We believe that such salvation with forgiveness of sin and sins, impartation of a new nature and hope of eternal life, is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership (man’s effort), and is only through faith and of pure grace.
We believe that a true believer is eternally secure. He cannot lose His salvation. Sin may interrupt the joy of his fellowship with God and will bring the loving discipline of his Heavenly Father.
We believe that all who receive Christ become joint-heirs with Christ; at death, our spirits depart to be with Christ in conscious, blessedness; and at the rapture their bodies will be raised to the likeness of the body of His glory and dwell forever in His divine presence.
We believe that 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 that the Holy Spirit is a person, is God, and possesses all the divine attributes. He indwells, baptizes and seals all believers at the moment of their salvation, and fills them in response to confession of sin and the yielding of self to Jesus Christ as Lord.
