Doctrinal Statement

We Believe the Bible Teaches:

  1. That the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments Scriptures are inerrant and verbally inspired of God and are the supreme and final authority in faith and life. [2Tim. 3:16-17; 2Pet. 1:20-21, PS. 119:89; John 10:35]
  2. There is one God, eternal, omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, manifesting Himself in Three Persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; one in nature, equal in attributes, power, and glory. [Deut. 6:4; PS. 2:7; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14]
  3. That the Lord Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of
    the virgin Mary, and that He is true God and true man. [Isa. 7:14, 9:6; Matt. 1:16; Jn. 1:14,17; Gal 4:4; Rom. 1:4]
  4. That God created man in His own image in a state of innocence, but man willfully transgresses God’s law and lost communion with God, becoming dead in sin, corrupt in nature, and incapable of pleasing God. [Gen. 1:26; Eph. 2:1; Gen. 3:16-19; Ps. 51:5; Heb. 11:6]
  5. That the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice and rose again for our justification; and that all who believe in him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood and are saved by grace through faith wholly apart from human merit and works. [Matt 20:28; 1 Peter 2:24; Isa. 53:6; 1 Tim. 1:15, 2:5; 1Jn. 2:2; 2 Cor. 5:19; Jn. 1:29.]
  6. Those all who receive the Lord Jesus by Faith are born again by the Holy Spirit through the Word of God and thereby become the children of God, eternally secure in Christ possessing everlasting life.[Jn. 3:3-8; 1Peter 1:23; 2 Cor 5:17 Titus 3-5; Eph. 2:8,9; Jn 1:12; Acts 16:30-31]
  7. The resurrection of the crucified body of the Lord, His ascension into
    heaven, and in His present life and session there as our High Priest
    and Advocate and the sole mediator. [Acts 1:9-11; 1 Cor. 15:1-8; Rev. 1:18; Heb. 10:12, 7:25; 1Tim. 2:5]
  8. The indwelling Holy Spirit, who regenerates, seals, is the earnest, illuminates and fills the believer in this age. There is one baptism of the Holy Spirit at the time of conversion and that speaking in tongues and other sign gifts ceased before or with the completion of the New Testament writings. [John 14:16, 17:26, 16:13; Titus 3:5; Eph. 1:13,14; 1 Cor. 2:9-13; Eph. 5:18; 1 Cor. 5:18; 1 Cor. 12:13, 13:8, 14:22.]
  9. The personal and visible pre-millennial return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to reign upon the earth from the Throne of David as King of Kings. [Rev. 19:11-16; Zech. 14:4; Hos. 14:4-7; Ezek. 48:35; Luke 1:32-33.]
  10. The imminent, soon, pre-tribulational return of Jesus Christ to rapture Church-age saints of this dispensation. [John 14:1-3; 1 Thess. 4:13-18; Rev. 3:10; 1 Cor. 15:51,52.]
  11. The bodily resurrection of all the dead; the saved to a life of eternal
    glory and bliss in Heaven with God; the unsaved to eternal judgment of
    conscious suffering and woe in the lake of Fire. [1 Thess. 4:13-18; Dan. 12:2,3; John 5:15-29; Rev. 20:4-6, 11-15]
