Doctrinal Statement

We believe…

  1. In one Holy, Almighty God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, each with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence or being.

  2. In the verbal and plenary inspiration of the Old and New Testaments; that they are infallible, inerrant in the original writings and the final authority for faith and life.

    Biblical References:

  3. That the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, without ceasing to be God, became man by the Holy Spirit and virgin birth; that he lived a sinless life on earth; that he died at Calvary as a satisfactory substitutionary sacrifice for sinners; that his body was buried in and arose from the tomb; that he ascended to heaven and was glorified as a man at God's right hand; that he is coming again for his own and then to set up his Kingdom.

    Biblical References:

  4. That the Holy Spirit is a divine person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; that he is that supernatural agent in regeneration by whom all believers are baptized into the body of Christ; that he indwells and seals them until the day of redemption. He is the divine teacher and helper who guides believers into all truth; it is the privilege of all believers to be filled with the Spirit.

    Biblical References:

  5. That God created man in his own image and in the state of innocence. Through Adam's transgression, "sin entered the world, and death through sin;" consequently, mankind inherited a corrupt nature, being born in sin and under condemnation. As soon as men are capable of moral action, they become actual transgressors in thought, word and deed.

    Biblical References:

  6. That salvation is a gift of God brought to man by grace and received only through personal repentance for sin and faith in the person and the finished work and atoning blood of Jesus Christ.

    Biblical References:

  7. In the bodily resurrection of men, the saved to eternal life and the unsaved to everlasting punishment. That the souls of the redeemed are, at death, absent from the body and present with the Lord, where, in conscious bliss, they await the first resurrection when spirit, soul, and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord.

    Biblical References:

  8. That the church universal is a spiritual organism composed of the regenerated who are baptized into that body by the Holy Spirit at the time of the new birth. The local church, as the visible manifestation of the body, has the responsibility to provide for the fellowship and edification of believers and to propagate the gospel into the world.
