our beliefs

  1. We believe that the Bible is the complete, inspired Word of God, consisting in its entirety of sixty-six books which compose the Old and New Testaments. It is the special revelation, of Himself and His plan of salvation, given through man who recorded His word in his own language as he was guided and inspired through the power of the Holy Spirit. It is fully inerrant in the original manuscripts and since God supervised their transmission, we have great confidence that our present copies of the original manuscripts are reliable. The Bible is fully trustworthy, sufficient and authoritative in all matters of faith and conduct. Mt 5:18; 2 Ti 3:16-17; 2 Pe 2:20-21; Heb 1:1-2; Jn 10:35; Eph 6:17; Isa 8:20; Ps 119:105 
  2. We believe that God is triune; that there are three eternal, co-equal, divine persons in the Godhead; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and that these three are one God. God is un-changing from everlasting to everlasting, the creator of all things, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. 1 Pe 2:2, Dt 6:4 
  3. We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin named Mary. While He was on earth he was fully God and fully man, and He lived a sinless life as the only begotten Son of God. Jn 1:1,14; 1 Ti 3:16; Lk 1:35; Col 2:9 
  4. We believe that man was created in the image of God; we inherited a sinful nature from Adam and were alienated from God, totally depraved and unable to remedy our lost condition. We believe that Jesus accomplished our redemption through his death on the Cross. As our substitutionary blood sacrifice, He provided unlimited atonement for the sins of the whole world. We believe that the only way to be saved is by repentance toward God and faith that His sacrifice was sufficient payment for our sins. All those who receive Him are saved by grace through faith, not of works, accepted into the body, kept by God’s power, assured of their salvation and secure in Christ forever. Jn 3:16; Jn 14:6; Eph 2:8-9; Ac. 4:12; 16:31; Ro 3:25-26; Jn 10:28; Heb 7:25; 1 Jn 5:13; Ac 20:21 
  5. We believe that according to the Scriptures, Jesus died as the Perfect Lamb of God for our sins. He demonstrated His power over death by resurrecting on the third day and now sits exalted at the right hand of God the Father in heaven. He is our High Priest, Advocate and Intercessor, the only mediator between God and man. Mk 16:19; Heb 9:24; 1 Jn 2:1-2; 1 Ti 2:5 
  6. We believe that the Church is the Bride and Body of Christ. Jesus is the Bridegroom and Head of the Church. The Church began with the descent of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost. It is composed of anyone who receives Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. Ac 2:1-4, 33, 47; Jn 7:39; 1 Co 12:13; Ro 8:915; 1 Jn 2:27, 4:13 
  7. We believe that the gospel commission is for the church. Believer’s baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper are the two ordinances that Christ desires His disciples to observe until He comes. Mt 28:19-20; Ac 8:36-39; Lk 22:19-20; 1 Co 11:23-26 
  8. We believe that Christ may return at any moment to rapture the saints and that the Tribulation of seven years will follow, after which He will come to the earth with the saints and rule for a thousand years. After this the wicked dead will be judged and cast into the lake of fire.1 Jn 14:3; Ac 1:7-11; I Thess. 1:10; 4:14-18; Ti 2:13; Da 9:27; Jude 14; Rev 20:4-6,15. 
  9. We believe that Satan is a literal, created, spirit being. He is not divine, but a fallen angel who led a rebellion against God. He is the author of the Fall and of sin, the enemy of God and man, the god of this age. He has been defeated at the Cross by the death and resurrection of Jesus and will be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire. Job 1:6-7; Isa 14:12-17; Mt 4:2-11, 25:41; Rev 20:10 
  10. We believe that those who die in Christ are immediately absent from the body and consciously present in heaven with the Lord. Those who die without Christ as Savior are in conscious torment awaiting final judgment at the Great White Throne. Lk 23:43, 16:10-31; Php 1:21-23; Rev 20:11-15 
  11. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, both just and unjust. The just to eternal joy in heaven in the presence of God; the unjust to eternal punishment apart from Him in the lake of fire. 1 Co 15:22-24, 29-44; Jn 5:28-29; Mt 24:46; Isa 33:14; Rev 20:14, 21:4
