WHAT WE BELIEVE
About the Bible
We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired of God and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life. 2 Peter 1:21, 2 Timothy 3:16-17.
About the Trinity
We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. John 10:30, Matthew 28:19.
About the Nature of Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of Mary while she was yet a virgin, and is true God and true man. Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:18-23, Colossians 2:9.
About the Nature of Man
We believe that man was created in the image of God, and that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God, and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature; and those who reach moral responsibility become sinners in word, thought and deed. Genesis 1:27, Romans 5:12, 3:23, 6:23, 1 Corinthians 15:22.
About the Atonement
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. Acts 13:38, Romans 4:5, 1 Corinthians 15:3, Galatians 2:16.
About the Resurrection
We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and in His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate. Luke 24:14, Acts 2:32, Hebrews 7:25, 1 John 2:1.
About the Future
We believe in the blessed hope, and the personal, pre-millennial and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, 5:1-11, Matthew 24, Revelations 19:11-21.
About the Holy Spirit
We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Spirit and thereby become children of God, sealed by the Holy Spirit and preserved unto the day of redemption. John 3:5, 10:28, Romans 8:35-39.
About Life After Death
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the conscious everlasting punishment of the lost. John 5:28, Revelations 20:4,5
About the Christian Life
We believe that all the saved are called into a life of separation from all worldly and sinful practices, and are under obligation to all the world by life and word to the truth and proclamation of the Gospel. Romans 12:1, 2, 2 Corinthians 5:14, Acts 1:8.
