The Holy Scriptures
We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the divinely inspired, infallible Word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original, writing, infallible and God breathed.
II Tim, 3:16; II Pet. 2:20-21; Matt. 5:18; John 16:12-13
We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, co-eternal in being, co-identical nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfection.
Deut. 6:4; II Cor. 13:14; I John 5:7
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that he might reveal God and redeem sinful man.
John 1:1-14; Lk. 1:35; Matt. 1:22-23
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through the shedding of his blood and his death on the cross, as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and that our justification is made sure by his literal, physical resurrection from the dead.
Rom. 3:24-25; I Pet 2:24; Eph. 1:7; I Pet. 1:3-5
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, he fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor and Advocate.
Acts 1:9-10; Heb. 9:24; Rom 8:34; I John 2:1-2
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment, and, that He is the Supernatural agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption.
John 16:8-11; Rom 8:9; I Cor 12:12-14; II Cor 3:6; Eph 1:14-15
We believe that He is the Divine Teacher who guides the believers into all truth; and that it is the privilege of each believer to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
John 16:13; Eph 5:18; I John 2:20-27
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 remedy his lost condition.
Gen 1:26-27; Rom 3:10-18; 22-23; 5:12; 8:7-8; Eph 2:1-3; 12
We believe that salvation is the gift God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins.
Eph 1:7; 2:30-10; I Pet 1:18-19; John 1:2; Titus 3:5
We believe that every saved person possesses two natures, with provision made for victory of the new nature over the old nature through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit. Rom 6:13; 8:11-15; Gal 5:16-25; Eph 4:22-24; Col 3:10; I Pet 1:14-16; I John 3:5-9
We believe that all the saved should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon our Savior and Lord; and that separation from all religious apostasy, all worldly and sinful pleasures, practices and associations is commanded of God.
II Tim 3:1-5; Rom 12:1-2; I John 2:15-17; II John 9:11; II Cor 6:14 to 7:1
We believe that it is the obligation of the saved to witness by life and by word to the truths of Holy Scripture and seek to proclaim the Gospel to all mankind.
Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8; Rom 1:14-16; II Cor 5:9-20
We believe that the church, which is the body and espoused bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of all born-again persons of this present age.
I Cor 12:12-14; II Cor 11:2; Eph 1:22-23; 5:25-27
We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures; and, that it has a worldwide vision, but in these days of apostacy Home Missions are vital.
Acts 14:27; 2:1, 28-32; I Tim 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-11
We believe that Satan is a person, the author of sin and 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. Job 1:6-7; Isa 14:12-17; Matt 4:2-11; 25:41; Rev 20:10
We believe in that “Blessed Hope” the personal, imminent, pre-tribulation, pre-millennial coming of our Lord Jesus Christ for His redeemed ones; and in His subsequent return to earth, with His saints, to establish His Millennial Kingdom.
Zec 14:4-11; I Thess 1:10; 4:13-18; 5:9; Rev 3:10; 19:11-16; 20:1-6
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life and the unsaved to judgement and everlasting punishment.
Matt 25:46; John 5:28-29; 11:25-26; Rev 20:5,6,12-13
We believe that the souls of the redeemed are, at death, absent from the body and present with the Lord, where in conscious bliss they await the first resurrection, when spirit, soul and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord.
Lk 20:4-6; II Cor 5:8; Phil 1:23; 3:21; I Thess 4:16-177
We believe that the souls of the unbelievers remain, after death, in conscious misery until the second resurrection, when with soul and body reunited they shall appear at the Great White Throne Judgment, and shall be cast into the lake of fire, not to be annihilated, but to suffer everlasting conscious punishment.
Matt 25:41-46; Mark 9:43-48; Kl 16:19-26; II Thess 1:7-9; Jude 6:7; Rev 20:11-15
We believe the Bible teaches Baptism for all believers, by immersion; and that it is the duty of each believer to so live that the meaning of baptism will be clearly understood by each believer. We do not believe in infant baptism, nor in adult baptism, but baptism for all true believers regardless of age.
Eph 4:5; Rom 6:4-5; Act 8:12; 38; 16:34; I Cor 1:14-17
We believe that it is a symbol of our identification with Christ in his death, burial and resurrection for our redemption; and that it is an act of obedience to the will of Christ on the part of the believer.
We believe the Bible teaches Communion for all believers; and that each believer is called upon to live worthily before partaking. We believe that it is a symbol of the broken body and shed blood of our Lord and should be practiced for the purpose of keeping in remembrance this fact. Matt 26:26-29; Mk 14:22-25; Lk 22:17-20; I Cor 11:23-24
We believe the Bible teaches that each believer should be strengthened by the Word of God, both young and old will benefit from such study, but especially is this true of the young. A systematic study in the Word, under the tutorage of the pastor is highly recommended, though we not hold to the common practice of confirmation
II Tim 2:15; I Pet 2:1-3; II Pet 1:10; Prov 22:6
We believe it to be Biblical to bring little ones unto the Lord to be blessed, and that this literally took place during the early ministry of our Blessed Lord. We therefore suggest that a service of dedication for children be observed from time to time as parents may request, and the pastor officiate. We do not believe in infant baptism, but do accent the Bible practice of bringing the young ones to be blessed.
Matt 19:13-15; Lk 10:13-16; Ld 18:15-17
It is our stand as a church that marriage is between one natural born man and one natural born woman as stated in these scriptures. According to Matthew 19:4-6, “Haven’t you read,” He replied, “that at the beginning the Creator “made them male and female” and said “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore, what God has joined together, let man not separate.” Mark 10:6-9; Genesis 2:22-24
The Pastor will also abide by this rule.
It is our stand as a church that there is one race, the human race, that is made up of many different ethnic groups. Every human is created in the image of God and is therefore equal in his sight. No one is superior based on skin color. Neither is anyone guilty or a victim merely because of one's skin color. Rather, the sin of partiality takes place when one looks down on another merely because of ethnic differences. Each person, no matter their ethnicity, is to be treated with the love that God calls every believer to carry out. Genesis 1:26-27; Acts 17:26; James 2:1-9
