1. INSPIRATION OF THE BIBLE
We believe that the whole Bible in the original writings is inspired of God, and the only infallible, inerrant, authoritative Word of God. It is the only source of God’s plan of salvation, the incorruptible seed that brings about the new birth, the source of spiritual food for the believer, the builder of our faith, and the primary guide for the Christian life.
2. BELIEF IN GOD
We believe that there is one God, externally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
GOD, THE FATHER
We believe in God the Father, creator and sustainer of all things visible and invisible, who is true holiness, eternal power, infinite love, perfect justice, absolute truth, the Alpha and Omega, the “I AM THAT I AM.”
GOD, THE SON
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His bodily ascension to the right hand of the Father, where He ever liveth to make intercession for His saints, in his pre-tribulational appearing for His saints and in His pre-millennial return to earth to reign in power and glory.
GOD, THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe the Holy Spirit is a divine person Who moved holy men of God to write the Scriptures, Who convicts of sin, Who quickens in the new birth, Who seals and is the earnest of our inheritance, and Who indwells the believer with power for holy living and service.
3. MAN: HIS CREATION, FALL AND NEED OF REDEMPTION
We believe that man was created by God in his own image as given in the Genesis account, that through disobedience to God man lost his first estate and thereby became a sinner in need of a Savior, and that since that time all men are born sinners, spiritually dead, alienated from God, and stand in need of personal redemption that is in the Lord Jesus Christ alone.
4: BLOOD ATONEMENT FOR SIN
We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace; that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, shedding his blood on the cross as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who repent and believe in Him, receiving Him by faith as personal Savior, are thereby justified on the basis of His shed blood.
5. PERSONAL NEW BIRTH
We believe that in order to be saved, all men being sinners must be born again. We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again by the Holy Spirit. We believe that this new birth is instantaneous, and not a process; and that it is brought about in a manner above our comprehension, solely by the power of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. We believe that in the new birth, God justifies the believer and writes his name in the Lamb’s Book of Life and that the Holy Spirit indwells the believer with the power for holy living and service.
We believe that justification is a judicial act of God by which He imparts to the born again believer, complete pardon of sins, the gift of eternal life and imputes to the believer his own righteousness. We believe that justification is bestowed not in consideration of any works of righteousness which the believer has done, but solely because of his faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
7. THE SECURITY OF THE BELIEVER
We believe that all who are truly born again are eternally secure since they have been saved by believing on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, are being held secure in Christ’s and the Father’s hands, have been sealed by the Holy Spirit, and are kept by the power of God unto salvation.
8. THE CHURCH
We believe that the true Church is the body of Christ, a living organism made up of born again believers, and is a called-out , local assembly. We believe that a local Church is a congregation of immersed believers, associated by covenant of faith and fellowship of the Gospel observing the ordinances of Christ, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper; governed by His laws; and exercising the gifts, rights and privileges invested in them by his word; that it’s officers Pastors and Deacons whose qualifications, claims and duties are clearly defined in the Scriptures. We believe that Christ as the head of the Church commanded two ordinances: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
9. THE RESURRECTION OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His bodily ascension into Heaven where He now is at the right hand of God as our High Priest, Mediator, Intercessor and Advocate.
10. THE LORD’S SECOND COMING
We believe that at the present the Lord is calling out a people for His Name and that those who receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior constitute the Family of God. We believe that the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first; then the living in Christ which are alive and remain shall be caught up together in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord. We believe in the personal, visible, pre-tribulational, pre-millennial rapture of the Church, and we believe in the pre-millennial return of Christ to the earth to reign in power and glory for one thousand years.
