We believe…

The Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God

(John 16:13; II Timothy 3:15-17; II Peter 1:21; I Thessalonians 2:13)

That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

(Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22; John 14:16)

In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ

(John 1:1, 14; 20:28-29; Philippians 2:6-11; Isaiah 9:6; Colossians 2:9)

His virgin birth

(Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:34-35; Isaiah 7:14)

His sinless life

(II Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15; 7:26-27; I John 3:5; I Peter 2:22)

His miracles

(Matthew 4:23; Luke 6:17-19; John 3:2)

His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood

(Colossians 1:14, 20; Romans 5:8-9; Ephesians 1:7)

His bodily resurrection

(I Corinthians 15:3-4; Luke 24:4-7, 36-48; Revelation 1:17-18)

His ascension to the right hand of the Father

(Acts 2:33; 5:30-31; I Peter 3:22)

And In His personal return in power and glory

(Acts 1:11; Philippians 2:9-11; I Thessalonians 1:10; 4:13-18; John 14:1-3)

That justification by faith in the atonement of Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful man.

(Rom. 3:24-25; John 3:3-7; I John 5:11-13; Eph. 2:1-16; Rev. 5:9; Acts 4:12; I Cor. 6:11)

The prime agency for the work of God’s Kingdom is the Christian local church functioning under the sovereignty of our Lord Jesus Christ. To the church have been entrusted the ordinances of believer’s Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

(Acts 2:41-47; 16:4-5; Matthew 16:18; 28:18-20; Ephesians 1:22-23; I Cor. 12; 11:23-26)

 

In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit which includes: His indwelling and empowering, by which the Christian is enabled to live a godly life; His supernatural gifting, infilling, and enabling of the Church for its work, life and worship.

(Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; 2:1-4; 10:44-46; I Cor. 12; 14)
