What We Believe
The Holy Scriptures
We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally inspired Word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible and God-breathed. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; Matthew 5:18; John 16:12, 13).
We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections. (Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinthians 13:14).
The Person and Work of
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adamís sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and that man is totally depraved and of himself, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22-23; 5:12; Ephesians 2:1-3,12).
We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. (Ephesians 2:8-10; Johns 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:18-19).
The Eternal Security and Assurance of Believers
We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by Godís power and are thus secure in Christ forever. (John 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Romans 8:1, 38, 39; 1 Corinthians 1:4-8; 1 Peter 1:5).
We believe that the church, which is the body and the espoused bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of all born-again persons of this present age. (Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:25-27; 1 Corinthians 12:12-24; 2 Corinthians 11:2)
The Personality of Satan
We believe that Satan is a person, the author of sin and the cause of the fall; that he is the open and declared enemy of God and man; and, that he shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire. (Job 1:6-7; Isaiah 14:12-17; Matthew 4:2-11; Revelation 20:10)
The Eternal State
We believe in the bodily
resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to
judgment and everlasting punishment. (Matthew 25:46; John 5:28-29;
11:25-26; Revelation 20:5-6, 12,31)
