Statement of Faith
What We Believe
The Holy Scriptures
We believe the Holy Scriptures to be God's spoken, inspired words, authoritative, and without error in the original manuscripts. We further believe that the scriptures of both the Old and New Testaments are designed for our practical instruction in faith and conduct.
2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21
We believe that God eternally exists in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit; each person is fully God, and there is one God.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 28:19
The Person and Work of the Lord Jesus Christ
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, came into the world that He might manifest God to men, fulfill prophecy, and become the Redeemer of a lost world. He was born of the Virgin Mary, and received a human body with a sinless human nature without ceasing to be God.
Luke 1:30-35; John 1:1, 14, 18; Hebrews 4:15; Philippians 2:5-11
We believe that, in infinite love for the lost, He voluntarily accepted His Father's will and became the divinely provided sacrificial Lamb and took away the world's sins.
Romans 3:25-31; 2 Corinthians 5:14; Hebrews 10:5-14
We believe He rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He had lived and died and that His resurrected body is the pattern of the body that ultimately will be given to all believers.
John 20:20; Philippians 3:20-21
We believe that on departing earth, He was accepted by His Father and that His acceptance is a final assurance to us that His redeeming work was perfectly accomplished.
We believe that He became head over all things to the church, which is His body, and in this ministry, He does not cease to intercede and advocate for the saved.
Luke 1:35; 1 Corinthians 15:1-3; Ephesians 1:23; Philippians 2:6-8; 2 Timothy 2:5; 1 John 2:1-2
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Trinity, dwells in every believer immediately after placing his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He provides the power to live the Christian life.
Romans 5:5; 8:1-9; Galatians 5:16-25
We believe that every believer receives grace from God in the form of a spiritual gift(s), which enables him to function as a member of the body of Christ for the express purpose of edifying the body.
Romans 12:6; 1 Corinthians 12:7; Ephesians 4:7
The Personality of Satan
We believe that Satan, the devil, is the prince of demons and the declared adversary of God and man. However, when the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross, He limited the devil's power and guaranteed the ultimate triumph of God.
Ephesians 2:2; 1 Peter 5:8; Revelation 20:10; Colossians 2:13-15
We believe that no one can enter the kingdom of God unless born again spiritually and that the new birth of the believer comes only through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We believe, also, that our redemption has been accomplished by the grace of God, an unmerited gift given in love by God and not the result of any human works.
John 3:17-18; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 3:13; Romans 4:4-5
We believe that the explicit message of our Lord Jesus Christ to those whom He has saved is to make Christ known to the whole world and that this is the purpose of the church through the individuals within it.
Matthew 28:18-19; Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 5:11-21
We believe that local churches gather for practical instruction in the scriptures, for fellowship with God and with other believers, and for the corporate witness to the unsaved world. Our common spiritual goal is to grow toward Christ's likeness.
Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:5; Ephesians 4:13-16
The Return of Christ
We believe in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth that will occur the same way as His personal ascension into the clouds with power and great glory to establish His millennial kingdom. The Lord Jesus Christ will return to receive to Himself both those alive at His coming and all who have previously died in Jesus Christ. We focus on the certainty of His return, not the timing.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Zechariah 14:4-11; Revelation 3:10
We believe that at death, the spirits and souls of those who have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation pass immediately into His presence and remain in conscious bliss until the resurrection of the glorified body when Christ comes for His own. After which the soul and body reunited shall be associated with Him forever in glory. All those who rejected Jesus Christ will be separated from God to endure His eternal wrath forever.
2 Corinthians 5:8; Revelation 20:11-15; 21:1-27
Responsibility of Believers
We believe that all believers should seek to walk by the Spirit, separating themselves from worldly practices and witnessing by life and by word the truths of the Holy Scripture.
Romans 12:1; Galatians 5:16, 25; 2 Corinthians 5:9-17
We believe that all believers will be judged at the judgment seat of Christ and rewarded based on their faithful obedience to Him in this life.
1 Corinthians 3:10-17
