We believe the Bible is the “inspired Word of God” (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21).
We believe God is supreme in His person and eternal in His being (Deut. 6:4; 2 Cor. 13:14; 1 Tim. 1:17).
We believe in the virgin birth of Christ, His deity, sinless life, vicarious death, bodily resurrection, and ascension (Eph. 1:7; John 1:1-2; Rom. 3:24-25; Luke 24: 2,51; 1 Thes. 4:13-18).
We believe the Holy Spirit is the executive of the Godhead. We believe that He executes the plan of God for our conviction and salvation. Christians are partakers of the Holy Spirit and are empowered for services by Him (Gen. 1:1-3; John 16:8-13; 1 Cor. 12:12-14; Rom. 8:9, 14, 16, 26, 27).
We believe man was created in the image of God and by choice fell into sin and death. Hence, every person is sinful and under condemnation to eternal judgment (Gen. 1:26-27; Rom. 3:22-23, Eph. 2: 1-12).
We believe salvation is entirely of grace and that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation (John 14:6).
We believe the blessings of salvation are made free by the Gospel, and nothing prevents the salvation of the sinner but his own inherent depravity and voluntary rejection of the gospel (Rom. 6-23, Gal. 5:1).
We believe the church is a visible conjuration of baptizing, believing, practicing New Testament principles, trusting its doctrines, observing its ordinances and exercising its autonomy (Eph. 1:22-23; 1 Cor. 12:12-14; Acts 14:27; 1 Tim. 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-11).
We believe in the eternal blessedness of the saved in heaven and the eternal punishment of the lost in hell (John 14:1-6; Rev. 20:15).
We believe that once saved, the believer is kept eternally by God’s power and is secure forever (John 6:37, 40; Rom.8:38-39; John 10:29; 1 Cor. 1:4-8; John 3:16).
We believe in the pre-tribulation rapture of the church followed by the seven-year tribulation and the pre-millennial second coming of Christ.
