What We Believe:
WE BELIEVE the Holy Bible to be the inspired, only infallible, authoritative, Word of God. Therefore, it is our sole norm of faith and practice.
(II Timothy 3:15; II Peter 1:21)
WE BELIEVE there is one God, eternally existent in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30)
WE BELIEVE that God is Spirit, infinite, personal, eternal, and unchangeable in His being, wisdom, power, justice, grace, goodness, and truth. (John 4:24; Malachi 3:6; James 1:17; Revelation 1:8, 17-18)
WE BELIEVE in the deity of Christ (John 10:33)
His conception by the Holy Ghost (Matthew 1:20)
His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35)
His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews7:26)
His miracles (John 2:11)
His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9)
His physical resurrection (John 11:25; I Corinthians 15:4)
His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19)
His personal return in power and glory. (Acts 1:11, Revelation 9:11)
WE BELIEVE that God created man in His own image and in a state of innocence, but through temptation man willfully transgressed. As a result, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and the wages for this sin are death. As a result, regeneration by the Holy Ghost is absolutely necessary for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ and that only by God's grace and through faith alone are we saved.
(John 3:16-19; John 5:24; Romans 3:23; Roman 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5)
WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28-29)
WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28)
WE BELIEVE in the present ministry of the Holy Ghost by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
(Romans 8:13-14; I Corinthians 3:16; I Corinthians 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30; Ephesians 5:18)
WE BELIEVE in the Church, the body of Christ, whose mission is to preach the gospel to all the world. (Mark 16:15)
WE BELIEVE that the ordinances of the church are believer’s baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper. (Mark 1: 9-10; Mark 16: 16; I Corinthians 11:23-26)
WE BELIEVE that Christians are prohibited from bringing civil lawsuits against other Christians or Christian Organizations to resolve personal disputes. (I Corinthians 6: 1-8)
