Statement of Faith

  • We believe in one God, the creator of all things, eternal, infinite, perfect, and manifested in three persons as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (John 1:1-3; Isaiah 44:6-8; Matt. 28:19; Mark 12:29; Duet. 6:4; Isaiah 43:10)

  • The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, are verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of mankind. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice. (II Peter 1:20-21, II Timothy 3:15-16)

  • We believe Jesus Christ was God manifested in the flesh, truly God and truly man, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born to the virgin Mary (Isaiah 7:14; Matt. 1:23; Isaiah 9:6)

  • We believe in His sinless life, His miraculous ministry, His substitutionary death on the cross as atonement for our sins, His bodily resurrection from the dead, and His ascension into heaven to serve as our intercessor before the Father (John 1:14; Hebrews 7:25,26)

  • Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God; he fell through voluntary disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. The portion of the impenitent and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment in hell; and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss in heaven. (Genesis 1:27, Romans 3:23, I Corinthians 15:20-23, Revelation 2:1-4,8)

  • We believe in salvation only through the Blood of Jesus. When we are saved we enter the family of God by an experience called the “New Birth” as Jesus taught Nicodemus in John chapter 3. This is what being “born again” means.

  • We believe water baptism should be observed by all who truly repent and believe on Christ as He commanded. ( Matt. 28:19; Acts 10:47,48; Acts 2:38; 1 Pet. 3:21 Rom. 6:4,5)

  • We believe that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit which were operational in the Book of Acts and elsewhere in the Bible are available for the believer today, even as “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)

  • We believe in the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep together with those who are alive and remain, is the imminent and blessed hope of the Church. We further believe that no man knows when this will occur, therefore it is unbiblical to set dates regarding the return of Christ.(1 Thes. 4:16; Rom. 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Cor. 15:51,52)
