STATEMENT OF FAITH

 

 

 

We believe that the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God; the only complete and final revelation of God to man; the true center of Christian union; and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried.  II Timothy 3:16, 17; Mark 13:11; II Peter 1:21; I Corinthians 2:13; Acts 1:16

 

We believe that God is spirit and infinite; that the Godhead eternally exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, and that these three are one God.  John 4:24; Mark 11:29; Matthew 28: 18-20

 

We believe in the absolute Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ;  that He is very God existing from eternity, co-equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit; that in His humanity He never ceased to be God;  and that He was miraculously begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.  John 1:1-2; I Timothy 3:16; Matthew 1:20; Isaiah 7:14

 

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a Divine Person, the source and power of all worship and service, and

our abiding Comforter and Helper; that He is equal with the Father and the Son, that He convicts of sin, righteousness and judgment, bears witness to the truth; that He guides, teaches, and indwells every true child of God and that with Him the believer is given power and sealed in Christ until the day of redemption.  John 14:16-17; John 16:13-14; John 15:26; Romans 8:9; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 1:13-14

 

We believe that God created the heavens and the earth, including all life each after its own kind, by a direct act and not by the process of evolution.  Genesis 1:2; Colossians 1:16-17; John 1:3

 

We believe that man, originally created in the image and likeness of God, fell from his high and holy estate through sin, and as the consequence of his disobedience, lost all spiritual life, becoming dead in trespasses and sins and subject to the power of the devil.  Genesis 1:26; Genesis 2:17; Ephesians 2:1-3; I John 3:8

 

We believe that because of this universal depravity of man, our redemption from sin can only be affected through the Lord Jesus Christ Who was made sin for us, and by Whose death we receive eternal salvation through faith in Him.  Romans 3:23; John 3:3-5; Ephesians 1:7; Acts 17:30; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 3:24; I John 10:28-29

 

We believe that the souls of those who have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation at the time of death, pass immediately into His presence and there remain in conscious bliss until the resurrection of the body at His coming when soul and body are reunited to be with Him forever in the Glory, but that the souls of unbelievers remain after death in conscious misery until the final judgment of the great white throne at the close of the millennium when soul and body reunited shall cast into the lake of fire to be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord.  II Corinthians. 5:8; Revelation 14:13; Philippians 3: 20-21; Luke 16:19-26; Revelation 20:11-15;

I Thes.1:7-9

 

We believe in the bodily and personal return of Jesus Christ to catch away the Church, all those from any nation who are united by the Holy Spirit to the risen and ascended Son of God.  Ephesians 1:12-13;  I Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 4:1-6

 

We believe that the purpose of the Church on earth is to present the Gospel of Christ in the whole world; to observe the Christian ordinances of Believer’s baptism.  Acts 8:36-39; John 3:23; Colossians 2:12; and the Lord’s supper.

 Luke 22:1-20; I Corinthians 11:23-26
