|We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired. That it is inerrant in the |
|original manuscripts and preserved by God. "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is |
profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of
God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
|We believe that the Godhead exists eternally in three persons; God the Father, God the Son, and |
|God the Holy Spirit and that these three are one God.|
|We believe that God is the absolute and sole creator of the universe and that creation was by divine |
|We believe that God, by His sovereign choice and out of love for men, sent Christ into the world to |
|save sinners. Therefore, salvation is in none other than through the name, person, work, and grace |
of Jesus Christ (John. 14:6; John. 3:16; Roman 5:8).
|We believe that Jesus Christ, in the flesh, was 100% God and 100% man. That He was born of a |
|virgin and that He lived a sinless life; that He was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins, and was |
raised from the dead bodily on the third day. Later, He ascended to the Father's right hand where
He is the head of the church and intercedes for believers as High Priest, and from whence He is
coming again personally, bodily, and visibly to this earth to set up His millennial kingdom.
|We believe that since in His death, by His shed blood, the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect |
|atonement for sin, redeeming us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. Men are |
saved and justified on the simple and single ground of His shed blood.
|We believe that such salvation with its forgiveness of sins, its impartation of a new nature, and its |
|hope of eternal life, is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership or man's effort |
and is of pure grace.
| We believe that all who receive Christ become joint heirs with Him, and at death, their spirits |
|depart to be with Christ in conscious blessedness. We believe that at rapture, their bodies will be |
raised to the likeness of the body of His glory and dwell forever in divine presence.
|We believe that it is the goal of every Christian to become a disciple of Christ by growing toward |
|spiritual maturity through the knowledge of and obedience to the Word of God and submission to |
the Holy Spirit, who indwells and seals all believers at the moment of salvation. Believers must
seek the fullness of the Spirit since it is His influence that will bring about victorious Christian
living on earth.
|We believe that Jesus will return to gather His people, as well as the resurrection of the dead in |
|Christ at His return (1 Corinthians 15:21-23).|
