Our Beliefs

God

God is a Person, eternally existing, as a Trinity in unity – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, – three Persons and yet one God.

(Genesis 1:1; I Corinthians 8:6; I John 5:7)
 

The Scripture

We believe that the Bible is the inerrant, inspired Word of God and that it is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice.

(2 Timothy 3:16-17, II Peter 1:19-21)
 

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ, eternally existing, is the only begotten Son of God, who became a sinless man to redeem us. He was born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man.

(John 1:1-2; I John 5:20; Matthew 1:20; Luke 2:26-28)
 

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with God the Father and God the Son. He is present in the world to convict of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment to come. He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation and provides the Christian with power for living. (2 Corinthians 13:14; John 14:16-17; Romans 8:14-27)
 

Sin

Man, (Male and Female) were created in the image of God but fell through sin, bringing not only physical death, but also spiritual death or eternal separation from God. Now all of mankind exists as a fallen race with an inherited sinful nature.

(Genesis 2:16, Genesis 3:16-19, Romans 3:10-23, Romans 6:23)

Salvation

Salvation is the free gift of God, neither earned nor secured by any work of man, but received only by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. It is in Him that all true believers have as a present possession, the gift of eternal life. Apart from Jesus Christ there is no possible salvation.

(Ephesians 2:8-9; II Corinthians 5:21; Romans 6:23; Romans 10:9-10, 13)
 

Eternal Security

We believe in the eternal security of the true believer in Jesus Christ. Since salvation is by grace, it is impossible for any believer to lose his salvation. We believe that their persevering attachment to Christ is the grand mark which distinguishes them from superficial professors; that a special Providence watches over their welfare; and that they are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.

(John 10:27-29; Eph. 1:13-14; 1 Peter 1:3-5; Rom. 8:35-39)
 

Second Coming

We believe in the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: that His return will be personal, visible, and glorious – a blessed hope, the time being unrevealed, yet always imminent; that when He comes, He will first remove His church from the earth by resurrection and transformation of our body (glorification).

(Acts 1:11; I Thessalonians 4:13-17; Hebrews 9:28; Revelation 19:11-16; Revelation 20:6)
 

Future Life

We believe in Future Life, Bodily Resurrection, and Eternal Judgment; that the spirit of believers at death go to be with Christ in heaven where they abide in joyful fellowship with Him until their bodies are raised from the grave, changed into the likeness of His glorious body, at which time their works shall be brought before the Judgment Seat of Christ for determination of reward; that the spirits of the unrighteous at death go into Hades where they are kept under punishment until the final day of judgment, at which time their bodies shall be resurrected and they shall be judged and condemned at the Great White Throne, and they shall be cast into the Lake of Fire, the place of final and everlasting punishment.

(Phil. 1:21-23; 1 Cor. 15:35-58; 2 Peter 2:9; Luke 16:19-31; Rev. 20:11-15).
 

Marriage

We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning, and that is marriage sanctioned by God, which joins one man and one woman in a single, exclusive, covenant union, as delineated in Scripture.

We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to only occur between a man and a woman who are married to each other. We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.

(Gen 2:22-24; Gen 2:15; Pro 5:18-19; Pro 31:10; 1 Cor 7:2; Mat 19:4-5)
