We Believe

But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine.  Titus 2:1

  • That the 66 books of Holy Scripture as originally given are in their entirety the Word of God verbally inspired and wholly without error in all that they declare and, therefore, are the supreme and final authority of faith and life.
  • In one Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • In the Virgin Birth and the Deity of Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, who is also Son of Man, with two distinct natures in one Person forever.
  • The vicarious substitutionary death of Jesus Christ on the cross made atonement for the sin of the world, efficient for all who repent and believe.
  • In the bodily resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, which assures the resurrection of all believers who have received God’s gift of eternal life.
  • Also in the resurrection of judgment in regard to unbelievers who reject the gospel.
  • In the imminent, visible and bodily return of Christ to this earth to set up His kingdom and to judge the world in righteousness.
  • That man was originally created in the image of God, that he fell into sin through the first Adam and that he is responsible for all sin he has committed. Sin causes him to be separated from God and lost eternally.
  • That salvation from everlasting punishment and entrance into a state of fellowship with God are secured only by a personal belief that Christ bore our sins in His own body on the cross and by a definite receiving of Christ, through the Person of the Holy Spirit, into one’s inner being. This is to receive eternal life and to be sealed
    unto the Day of Redemption.
  • That the Holy Spirit thus indwells all who receive Jesus Christ as both Savior and Lord.
  • That the Holy Spirit is responsible for the quickening from death into life and for the continuing of the work of sanctification in the believer.
  • That the church is the body of Christ, a spiritual organism of born again believers who are called to be identified with Christ in baptism and to remember His death in the Lord’s Supper.
  • That all believers are called to be in the world but separate from it.
  • That Christians are called to witness for Christ, to preach the gospel to all nations, and to study the Bible personally through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit until each one is matured into the preordained purpose of God for him.
  • That marriage is the covenantal union between one man and one woman and is a commitment designed by God  to last a lifetime. Man and woman complement one another in marriage.  The husband is to lead sacrificially and love his wife.  The wife is to submit willingly and respect her husband.
  • That a person’s biological sex is equal to his/her gender, i.e. a biological male is a man and a biological female is a woman.  Because in God’s good design He has made us distinctly “male and female,” there should never be an attempt to confuse the genders or change one’s anatomy to fit the opposite gender.
