What We Believe

  • In the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired of God (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:19-21) and inerrant in the original writings (Matthew 5:18), and that they are supreme and final authority in faith and life (I Peter 1:3; 2 Timothy 3:16-17).

  • In one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Ghost (Ephesians 4:4-6; Jude 20-21; Revelation 1:8).

  • That Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man (Luke 1:35; John 1:1-4, 10:30).

  • That man was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26), that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death which is separation from God (Genesis 1:23-24, 5:5); and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature (Romans 5:12-15, 6:6), and, in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, become sinners in thought, word and deed (Romans 3:23.

  • That the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures (I Corinthians 15:3) as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice (2 Corinthians 5:21); that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood (Romans 3:23-25, 5:9).

  • In the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord (I Corinthians 15:20), in His ascension into Heaven, and in his present life there for us a High Priest and Advocate (Hebrews 7:25-8:1).

  • In “that blessed Hope” (Titus 2:13), the personal (Zechariah 14:4), premillennial (Revelation 20:4b, 6) and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

  • That all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God (Romans 19:9; 1 Corinthians 12:13).

  • In the prominence of the local and visible Church (Acts 15:22; Revelation 1:4), baptism, by immersion for believers (Acts 9:36-39; 10:47, 11:15-17) and the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper (Luke 22:19-20: I Corinthians 11:23-34).

  • In the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust (John 5:28-29), the everlasting blessedness of the saved (Revelation 20:6), and the everlasting, conscious punishment of the lost (Luke 16:19-21; Revelation 20:11-15).

  • The God created an angelic being and named him Lucifer—Son of the Morning (Isaiah 14:12). He rebelled against God because of the sin of pride and God cast him out of Heaven. He is the enemy of God and of every believer (I John 3:8). The believer is admonished to resist him (James 4:7).

  • We believe in the literal Genesis account of Creation in which God through the pre-incarnate Christ (John 1:3) created all of the world and its creatures in six consecutive twenty-four hour days.  Mankind was created as man and woman and dwelt in the presence of God in a perfect, sinless state.  However, as a result of disobedience to God, sin entered Adam and Eve and they became aware of good and evil.  Because of God’s grace He condemned Adam and Eve to leave His direct presence and become subject to spiritual and physical death (Genesis 3:2-23). Through Adam sin entered the world and the judgment of death was thus passed to all men (Romans 5:12).  But God’s redemptive plan allowed for the substitutionary death of His Son Jesus Christ to atone for the sins of man (Romans 5:18), and to bring salvation and eternal life to all who believe (John 3:16).  The foundation for the origin and purpose of life, the cause of death, and the need for a Savior can only be understood in the light and knowledge of the truth as presented in God’s Word (2 Corinthians 4:6).

  • We believe that principles of marriage and sexuality are self-evident truths confirmed by Scripture, nature, and the historical deterioration of civilizations that stray from them.  The only legitimate marriage is the joining of one man and one woman (Genesis 2:24) and that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of marriage between one man and one woman.  Any perversion of God’s gift of sex and sexuality is strictly forbidden by God.*
