Doctrinal Statement

What We Believe

  • We believe that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is verbally inspired of God, is inerrant, is our only rule in matters of faith and practice, and that mankind is warned to not add to nor take away from any part of the Bible (Mark 12:26, 36; Luke 24:27, 44; John 5:39; Rom. 15:4; II Tim. 3:16, Rev. 22:18-19).
  • We believe there is one triune God, eternally existent in the persons of the Father, Son (Jesus Christ), and Holy Spirit; these three are one in essence, but distinct in person and function (2 Cor. 13:14).
  • We believe in creation, not evolution; that man was created by a direct act of God and in the image of God (Gen. 1:26).
  • We believe that Adam and Eve, in yielding to the temptation of Satan, fell into sin, therefore transmitting this fallen state to the rest of humankind (Gen. 3, Ps. 51, Rom. 3).
  • We believe in the Incarnation, the Virgin Birth, and the Deity of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ (Luke 1:30-35, John 1:1-2).
  • We believe in the vicarious and substitutional atonement for the sins of humankind by the shedding of His blood on the cross (Lev. 17:11, Rom. 5:6-9).
  • We believe in the resurrection of His body from the tomb, His ascension to Heaven, and His advocacy for us (John 20:20, Acts 1:9, Heb. 7:25).
  • We believe that He is personally coming again (I Thess. 4:13-18).
  • We believe in the necessity of the New Birth, and we believe that this New Birth is through the regeneration of the Holy Spirit (John 3).
  • We believe that salvation is by grace through faith, plus nothing and minus nothing, through the atonement of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ (Eph. 2:8-9).
  • We believe marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. It is God’s unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church and the exclusive channel of sexual expression according to biblical standards. (Gen. 1:27-28; Gen. 2:24; Eph. 5:31-32; Heb. 13:4)

This statement of faith is the basis for Christian fellowship and we believe that all born again men and women who sincerely accept it, and are separated from the world of apostasy and sin can and should live together in peace and that it is their Christian duty to promote harmony among the believers.
