We believe that the Holy Scriptures is the complete and verbally inspired Word of God,without error in its original manuscripts, and therefore, the supreme standard for faith and conduct. II Tim. 3:16-17, II Peter 1:21.
We believe in one, living, eternal, and true God, existing in three persons as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Duet. 6:4, I Tim. 1:17, II Cor. 13:14.
We believe in the absolute deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; in His virgin birth; in His perfect humanity; His vicarious death through the shedding of His blood for the forgiveness of sins; His bodily resurrection and ascension; His present High Priestly ministry, and in “that blessed hope,” the personal, imminent, pretribulation and premillennial coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for His redeemed ones; and His subsequent return to Earth, with His saints, to establish His millennial kingdom. John 1:1-2, 14, Luke 1:35, Rom. 3:24-25, Eph. 1:7, Heb. 7:25, Titus 2:13, Rev. 19:11-16.
We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment, and that He is the agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the Body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption. John 16:8-11, I Cor. 12:12-14, Rom. 8:9, Eph. 1:13-14.
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and that man is totally depraved, and of himself, utterly unable to redeem his lost condition. Gen. 1:26-27, Rom. 3:22-23, Rom. 5:12, Eph. 2:1-3, 12.
We believe that the salvation of the sinner is wholly of grace through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that the redeemed are kept by God’s power unto everlasting life. Eph. 2:8,9, John 6:37-40, I Peter 1:5.
We believe that God is sovereign in the bestowment of all His gifts such as the gifts of evangelist, pastors, and teachers for the equipping of the saints today. We believe that God does heal and does answer the prayer of faith, in accord with his own will, for the sick and afflicted. I Cor. 12:4-11, Eph. 4:7-12, I John 5:14-15.
We believe the Church of Jesus Christ began at Pentecost and is the Body and Bride of Christ, a spiritual organism made up of all born-again persons of this present age. We also believe in the local church as defined in the New Testament Scriptures. Eph. 1:22-23, I Cor. 12:12-14, I Tim. 3:1-13, Titus 1:5-11.
We believe that Satan is a supernatural person, the author of sin, and the cause of the fall; that he is the open and declared enemy of God and man; and that he shall be eternally punished in the lake of fire. Isa. 14:12-17, Matt. 25:42, Rev. 20:10.
We believe in the observance of three ordinances: Baptism of Believers by immersion, the Lord’s Supper, and the Washing of the Saint’s Feet, as a perpetual remembrance to all believers. I Cor. 11:23-29, John 13:14-15.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost. John 5:28-29, II Cor. 5:18, II Thess. 1:7-9, Rev. 20:11-15.
