II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:19-21; John 17:17
We believe the Holy Bible is the inspired, inerrant and infallible Word of God to man. It is without error and the sole authority for Christian faith and conduct. That the Word of God is essential for salvation through belief in Jesus Christ and His death, burial and resurrection.
Genesis 1:1-2, 26; Colossians 1:18; Matthew 28:19; Hebrews 1:1; II Peter 1:20-21; John 3:16-17; Ephesians 4:30
We believe there is one and only one true and living God. He is the infinite and all powerful Creator of the universe. He is worthy of all love, honor and glory. Yet, in the unity of the Godhead, there are manifested three persons we call the Trinity or tri-unity—God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit. They are co-equal and co-eternal, executing distinct but harmonious offices. They cooperated in creation, revealing of Scripture, and the plan of salvation.
Isaiah 7:14; John 3:16-17; I Corinthians 15:3-10;Acts 1:11
We believe that Jesus fulfilled all prophecy concerning the promised Messiah by God. He was born of a virgin and manifested as God in the flesh. Jesus was sent to pay for our sin on the cross by God the Father to offer mankind eternal life. Jesus rose from the dead on the third day, ascended into heaven, and is now seated in heaven at the right hand of God the Father.
Genesis 1:26 & 3:1-24; Romans 5:12 & 6:23; John 3:3, 7, 36
We believe man was created in the image of God on the sixth day of creation. He voluntarily fell from his sinless state by disobeying God’s command. As a result, this sin nature is passed upon all men which makes the new birth (faith in Jesus) absolutely necessary for salvation.
Roman 6:23 & 10:9-11; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2:8-9; I Corinthians 15:3-4; John 19:28; Romans 8:38-39; Philippians 1:6
We believe that salvation is the gift of God available only by grace alone through faith alone in the finished work of Jesus Christ. The individual must believe that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and bodily rose again the third day. Confession is made and a new life of service, spiritual growth, witness and desire to obey the Lord begins.
Matthew 28:19; Romans 8:14,16, 26-27; John 14:16, 26 & 16:7-15; 1 Corinthians 3:16
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Trinity. He lives in the follower of the Lord Jesus as their teacher, comforter, prayer partner, helper, etc., enabling them to live a godly life. He has been given to the world to convict men of sin, judgment and righteousness. According to the Scripture, He does not draw any attention to Himself, but instead glorifies Jesus Christ.
John 8:44; Ephesians 2:2 & 6:11-12; Revelation 20:10; Luke 10:18
We believe in the existence of Satan, called the devil, and his present control over unregenerate mankind. He is the father of lies, the prince of the power of the air, the author of all false religions and the accuser of the brethren. He will ultimately be destroyed.
Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:46; John 5:29; Revelation 20:5
We believe in the resurrection of the saved and the lost, those that are saved unto the resurrection of life in heaven and those that are lost unto eternal damnation in hellfire.
Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8; 2:41-42; 8:12-13, 36-38; 10:47-48; I Corinthians 11:23-27
Those who have put their faith in Jesus Christ during this Grace Age are a part of the Church. We believe the Church’s mission is to go into the entire world and preach the gospel to every creature, baptizing and teaching everyone who believes. We believe the Church’s ordinances are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
