What We Believe
We believe that the entire Bible is the Divinely Inspired Word and Revelation of God, and therefore our only authority for faith and practice. 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21.
We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons, the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit; and that these three are one God, having precisely the same homage, confidence and obedience. Mark 12:29; John 1:1-4; Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 5:3-4; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:1-3; Revelation 1:4-6.
We believe in the full Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, that He is very God by whom and for whom all things were created. John 1:1-3; Philippians 2:6-8 We believe in His Virgin birth, that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and is, therefore, God manifested in the flesh. Luke1:31, 32-35; 2:7
We believe in salvation by divine sacrifice, that the Son of God gave, “His life a ransom for many,” and “bore our sins in His own body on the tree.” Matthew 20:28; 1 Peter 2:24
We believe in His physical resurrection from the dead and in His bodily presence at the right hand of God as our High Priest and Advocate. Luke 24:39; Hebrews 9:11; 1 John 2:1; Hebrews 10:12
We believe in the universality and heinousness of sin in all men, and in salvation by grace, “Not of works lest any man should boast”; that relationship with God is attained only by regeneration through the Holy Spirit and by faith in Jesus Christ. Romans 5:12; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5
We believe in the personality and Deity of the Holy Spirit, Who indwells believers and Who is here to “reprove the world of sin, and of all righteousness, and of judgment.” John 16:7-11; Romans 8:11
We believe in the command which our Lord has given to his Church to evangelize the world, and that this evangelization and the edification of the body of Christ are the great obligations of the Church. Romans 1:14-16; Ephesians 4:11-13; 2 Timothy 4:5
We believe in the second, and visible coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to complete His saving work and establish His world-wide Kingdom on earth. Acts 1:10-11; Revelation 22:20
We believe in a Heaven of eternal bliss for the righteous, and in the conscious and eternal punishment of the wicked. John 14:1-3; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10; Revelation 20:11-15; 21:1-5
