DOCTRINAL STATEMENTS

The Holy Scriptures.  We believe that the Holy Bible is the infallible Word of 

God and the final authority of our lives (II Tim. 3:16-17; II Pet. 1:19-21).


God.  We believe in one living and true Holy God, the Creator of all things (Deut. 6:4; I Cor. 8:6; I Tim. 2:5).


Jesus Christ.  We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Son of man; that He is not only Lord and Savior of all mankind, but also God (John 1:1; Col. 1:15-17; 2:9).


The Holy Spirit.  We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, equal with God the Father and God the Son and of the same nature.  We also believe in the diversities of gifts, the power, the manifestation and the work of the Holy Spirit in each believers (Gen. 1:2, 26; Matt. 28:19; I Pet. 1:2; 1 Cor. 12:4-11).


Man.  We believe that man is not a matter of evolution but was created, as the result of God’s work.  The sin and fall of Adam resulted in the fall of creation and mankind, both physically and spiritually (Gen. 1:26-27; Gen. 3; Rom. 3:10, 5:12, 8:18-23).  


Salvation. We believe that salvation is a gift from God to ALL by the Gospel, and we are saved by grace through faith, not by works.  In God’s electing grace a sinner has the power of free will and the immediate duty to accept or reject salvation by a vital, penitent and obedient faith (John 1:12-13; John 3:15-18, 36; 5:40; Eph. 2:4-5; Rom. 6:23).  


Baptism.  We believe that we become members of the Body of Christ at the time of the new birth; that baptism by immersion is a public witnessing of our identification with the Body of Christ, a local church; and that believers are to walk in newness of life (Matt. 28:20; I Cor. 12: 13; Rom. 6:3-4).


Eternal Security.  We believe that salvation is not only a gift from God but is sustained by Him as well. Salvation is wholly of the Lord, apart from the works of man.  The Holy Spirit permanently indwells the believer and seals him in salvation for all eternity.  Therefore, the believer shall be kept by the power of God through faith (John 3:16, 10:27-29, 14:16-17, 26; Eph. 1:13-14; 2:8-9; Phil. 1:6; I Pet. 1:5; Jude 24-25).


Creation.  We believe that by God’s Word all things were created in six literal, twenty-four hour days (Gen. 1:1; 2:7; John 1:3; Rom. 1:20-21; Col. 1:15-1).


Satan.  We believe that Satan (or the Devil) and demons are real.  They are enemies of God and His Christ and believers as well (Isa. 14:12-15; Luke 10:18; II Cor. 11:13-15).


The Virgin Birth.  We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit, in a miraculous manner; born of Mary, a virgin.  He is the only begotten Son of God (Isa. 7:14; Mark 1:1; John 1:14; I Cor. 15:47; Gal. 4:4; 1).


The Atonement for Sin.  We believe that the shedding of Jesus Christ’s blood made a full and vicarious atonement for the sins of all men everywhere (Isa. 53:4-7, 11-12; Rom. 3:24-25; Gal. 1:4; Eph. 2:8-10; Phil. 2:7-8; Heb. 2:14).


The Local Church.  We believe that the local Church is a divine institution of God, made of born again believers who were commissioned by the Lord Jesus Christ to fulfill the Great Commission (Matt. 16:18; 28:19-20; Acts 2:41-42; Eph. 1:22-23; 5:23-24, 32; Col. 1:18; I Tim. 3: 15).


The Lord’s Supper.  We believe that the Lord’s Supper [Holy Communion] must be observed by believers until Jesus Christ returns (Matt. 28:19; John 3:23; Rom. 6:3-5; I Cor. 11:23-30; Col. 2:11-12).


Tithing and the Grace of Giving.  We believe tithing is God’s command that each Christian believer should observe; and the grace of giving is one of the fundamentals of the Christian Faith of worshipping God that supports and advances the work of God (Lev. 27:30; Mal. 3:10; I Cor. 16:1-2; II Cor. 9:7-8; Heb. 7:2, 4).


Marriage.  We believe that marriage is a divine institution of God between one man and one woman, and an act of worship we offer to God (Gen. 2:18, 21-24; Mark 10:9; I Cor. 7:1-2, 39; Heb. 13:4).


Civil Government.  We believe that a civil government is of divine appointment, for the interests and good order of human society (Rom. 13:1-7; Titus 3:1; I Pet. 2:13-14, 17).


Bodily Resurrection [The Resurrection of the Dead].  We believe in bodily resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, which is the assurance of the bodily resurrection of all believers (Mark 16:6, 19; John 14:3; 20:27; I Cor. 15:3-4, 20-26, 58; I Thess. 4:16-17; Heb. 12:2).


The Final Judgment of God.  We believe that the great and final judgment of God awaits Satan, and that all those whose names are not written in the Book of Life will be thrown into the Lake of Fire (Dan. 12:2; Matt. 25:41; II Pet. 3:7; Jude 7; Rev. 20:7-15).


The New Heaven and New Earth.  We believe in New Heaven and New Earth, the Holy City, or the New Jerusalem (II Pet. 3:13-14; Rev. 3:12; 21:2).
