what we believe

THE SCRIPTURE:  We believe the Bible is God's written revelation to man.  It is verbally inspired in every word, and absolutely inerrant in the original documents.  We affirm the infallibility, sufficiency, and authority of Scripture.  (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20)

 

GOD:  We believe that there is but one living and true God, an infinite, all-knowing Spirit, perfect in all His attributes, one in essence, power, and glory, eternally existing in three Persons--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit--each equally deserviing worship and obedience.  The one Truine God (the Trinity) is Creator of all.  (2 Corinthians 13:14, Matthew 28:19; Deuteronomy 6:4; John 10:30; Colossians 1:16)

 

JESUS:  We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His Virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.  (Matthew 1:18-25; John 1:1-3; John 10:30, 14:9; 1 Corinthians 15:3-20)

 

HOLY SPIRIT:  We believe in deity and personality of the Holy Spirit.  We believe in the Spirit-filled life.  As the supernatural and sovereign Agent in regeneration, the Holy Spirit baptizes all believers into the Body of Christ at the moment of salvation.  The Holy Spirit also indwells, sanctifies, instructs, empowers them for service, and seals them unto the day of redemption.  (Matthew 28:19; Acts 5:3-4; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 1:13-14)

 

MAN AND SALVATION:  We believe that the salvation of man, who is sinful and lost, is instantaneous and accomplished solely by the power of the Holy Spirit through the instrumentality of the Word of God when the repentant sinner--enabled by the Holy Spirit--responds in faith.  This salvation is wholly of God by grace on the basis of the redeeming work of Jesus Christ, the merit of His shed blood, and not on the basis of human merit or works.  All the redeemed are kept by God's power and are thus secure in Christ forever.  (Romans 3:23, 5:1, 8:1, 8:38-39; Ephesians 2:1-13; 1 Peter 3:18)

 

 THE CHURCH:  We believe that all who put their faith in Jesus Christ are immediately placed by the Holy Spirit into one united spiritual Body, the church, of which Christ is the Head.  The purpose of the church is to glorify God by building its members up in the faith, by instruction of the Word, by fellowship, by keeping the ordinances:  believers' baptism by immersion and the Lord's table, and by advancing and communicating the gospel to the entire world.  The formation of the church, the Body of Christ, began on the Day of Pentecost and will be completed at the coming of Christ for His own at the rapture.  (Matthew 16:18; Acts 2:42; John 17:20-22; Colossians 1:18; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:11)

 

THE FUTURE:  We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; the saved unto the resurrection of life and the unsaved unto the resurrection of damnation.  We believe in "that blessed hope," in the pre-tribulation repture of the church and in the personal and pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ to reign on earth.  (Matthew 25:41; John 3:36; Titus 2:13; Revelation 3:10; 20:4-15)
