What We Believe
We believe in the plenary-verbal inspiration of the accepted canon of the Scriptures as originally given and that they are infallibly and uniquely authoritative and free from error of any sort in all matters with which they deal, including scientific and historical as well as moral and theological (2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Corinthians 2:13).
We believe in the Eternal Godhead who has revealed Himself as ONE God existing in THREE persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; distinguishable but indivisible (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).
We believe in the full historicity and perspicuity of the Biblical record of primeval history, including the literal existence of Adam and Eve as the progenitors of all people, the literal fall and resultant divine curse on the creation, the worldwide cataclysmic deluge, and the origin of nations and languages at the tower of Babel (Genesis 1-11).
We believe in the creation, test and fall of man as recorded in Genesis and his total spiritual depravity and inability to attain to divine righteousness (Romans 3:10-18).
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, without sin, completely God and completely man. We believe Christ died for our sins and experienced the human pain of a torturous cross, was buried and rose again the third day, and personally appeared to His disciples (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:18; Isaiah 7:14; 9:16, 1 Corinthians 15:14; Romans 4:25).
We believe in salvation by grace through faith. We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary by which we obtain remission of sins. We rest in the perfect sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, and lean solely on Gods sovereignty in all eternal matters. (Ephesians 1:5-6, Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9:12, 22; Romans 5:11).
We believe in the necessity of water baptism by immersion in the name of the Eternal Godhead in order to fulfill the command of Christ (Matthew 28;19; Acts 2:37-39; 19:1-6).
We believe in the Table of the Lord, commonly called Communion or the Lord’s Supper, for believers (1 Corinthians 11:28-32).
We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Spirit as enumerated in 1 Corinthians 12-14 and as manifested in the Early Church.
We believe in the sanctity of marriage as established by the Holy Scriptures, that God created marriage, and that the only legitimate marriage is the joining of one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:24; Romans 7:2-3; 1 Corinthians 7:10-11; Ephesians 5:22-33).
We believe in the healing of the body by Divine Power, or Divine healing in its varied aspects as practiced in the Early Church (Acts 4:30; Romans 8:11; 1 Corinthians 12:9; James 5:1 ).
We believe giving is a biblical and natural response to the atoning and regenerating work of Jesus. According to scripture giving should be willing, cheerful, regular in pattern, generous, and sacrificial. We believe the Tithe (the first 10% of ones income) is a biblical outline for a giving lifestyle that spans both the old and new testaments making it trans-covenantal. We believe that total-life prosperity is the will of God for every believer. (Deuteronomy 8:18, Mark 12:42-44, Acts 4:32-22 1 Corinthians 16:2, 2 Corinthians 8:2-9; 9:6-15).
We believe in eternal life for believers (John 5:24; 3:16) and eternal punishment for unbelievers (Mark 9:43-58; 2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 20:10-15).
We believe that Jesus Christ will come again to earth, personally and visibly, to consummate history and the eternal plan of God. We wait with great anticipation. (Matthew 16:27, Matthew 24:36-42, Acts 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:15-5:4, Revelation 22:20-21)
