Statement of Faith

  1. We believe the Bible is verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts and is the infallible and authoritative Word of God. (2 Tim 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)

  3. We Believe there is one God eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Gen 1:1; Matt 28:19; 1 John 5:5-7)

  5. We believe in the Deity of Christ; (John 10:30); His Virgin Birth (Isa 7:14; Matt 1:23; Luke 1:35); His sinless life (2 Cor 5:21); His shed blood for atonement (Eph 1:7; Col 1:14); His bodily resurrection (John 11:25); His ascension (Acts 1:11); and His personal, pre-millennial return to establish His Kingdom on earth (Rev 19:11-16).

  7. We believe that all men are by nature sinful and lost. (Rom 3:10, 19, 23) and that Holy Spirit regeneration is absolutely essential for salvation (John 1:13).

  9. We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts of sin (John 16:8), makes believers children of God through new birth (John 3:3), assuring them of Heaven and by His indwelling enables Christians to live godly lives (1 Cor. 3:16: Titus 3:5,6).

  11. We believe that men are justified only by faith in the death and shed blood of Jesus Christ (Rom. 5:1; Acts 13:38, 39).

  13. We believe in the personal, visible, imminent, pre-millennial return of Christ, the resurrection of the just, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost (John 5:28, 29; 1 Thess. 4:16,17).

  15. We believe that Satan is a spiritual being who is the enemy of God and men, and is the author of sin and death (1 Peter 5:8,9; Matt. 4:2-11).

  17. We believe Christ’s commission to the Church is to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15).

  19. We believe that baptism is a scriptural ordinance to be administered by a New Testament Church (Rom. 6:3-5; Matt. 3:15,16) by immersion (Acts 8:38, 39) for believers only (Acts 2:41) as an outward expression of belief in Christ (1 Peter 3:21).

  21. We believe the Lord’s Supper is a scriptural ordinance of the Church to be partaken of by obedient, born-again believers (1 Cor. 11:23-29).

  23. We believe the Church, the Body or Bride of Christ, consists only of those who are born again, for whom He now makes intercession in Heaven and for whom He shall come again (John 14:3; Rom. 12:5; 1 Cor. 12:12-14).

  25. We believe that Biblical marriage is the unity of only one man and one woman, (their gender being determined and finalized at conception), committed in covenant to each other for life. We believe marriage was established by God and instituted between the first man and the first woman. (Genesis 2:18-25; Romans 1:18-31; I Corinthians 7:2-5; Ephesians 5:31-32; Hebrews 13:4).
