What We Believe

image5

The Holy Bible.  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).
