We believe God exists eternally in three Persons: namely, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that these three are One God.
Deut. 6:4, Matt. 28:19
We believe in God the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom and measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, born of a virgin, conceived by the Holy Spirit, sinless in His life, who atoned for the sins of the world by His death on the cross. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His High-Priestly intercession for His people. We believe in the personal, visible, premillenial return of our Lord and in His authority to judge the living and the dead.
Luke 1:35, John 1:1,2,14, I Peter 1:3-5, Heb. 7:25
We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit, who came forth from God to convict the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, comfort and seal unto the day of redemption those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.
John 16:8-11, Eph. 1:13-14
We believe in the Biblical account of the creation of the heavens and the earth.
We believe that man was created in the image of God: that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is eternal separation from God; that all men are born with a sinful nature and, in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, become sinners by choice in thought, word and deed; that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins as a vicarious and substitutionary sacrifice; and, that all who believe in Him are justified by faith in Christ and eternally secure by the Holy Spirit until the redemption of our bodies at the rapture of the church.
Gen. 1:26-27, Rom. 3:22-23, Heb. 9:27, Rom. 5:8,12, John 3 :16, Eph. 1:13-14
We believe that the Bible is God's infallible Word, written by men who were divinely and uniquely inspired, and that it is our supreme authority in all matters of faith and practice. We affirm our belief in the verbal and plenary inspiration of the Scriptures and in their inerrancy in the original manuscript.
II Tim. 3:16-17, II Pet. 1:20-21, Luke 24:27,44
We believe in the competency of the individual soul in direct approach to God and the priesthood of all believers.
Rom. 5:6-11, I Pet. 2:9-10
We believe that the ordinances of baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper are for this dispensation. They are, however, not to be regarded as the means of salvation.
Rom. 6:3-10, I Cor. 11:23-26, Acts 2:41, Acts 8:36-39
We believe that the true Church is composed of born-again believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, voluntarily united together for the purpose to worship God, to intercede for others in prayer, to edify one another, to bear one another's burdens and to proclaim the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ throughout the world.
Eph. 1:22-23, Eph. 5:25-27, I Cor. 12:12-14
We believe in the autonomy of the local church, the solemn obligation of majority rule within the church, equal rights to all and special privileges to none, and the absolute separation of church and state.
Acts 6:1-7, Acts 13:1-4, Rom. 13:1-8, I Cor. 12:1-11, 25,28
We believe that God created an innumerable company of sinless, spiritual beings, known as angels; that one, the highest in rank, sinned, thereby becoming Satan, an enemy of God and of His Saints. Many angels followed him and are called fallen angels. We also believe that a great company of angels kept their original estate and are before the throne of God, from whence they are sent forth as ministering spirits.
Isa. 14:12-17, Luke 15:10, Heb. 1-14, Jude 6
