The Scriptures – We believe “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
The Godhead – We believe in the Triune God – Father, Son & Holy Spirit, eternal in being, identical in nature, equal in power & glory and having precisely the same attributes & perfections.
Man’s Creation/Fall – We believe man was created in the image & likeness of God but through sin, became alienated from God, acquired a sin nature & came under the judicial sentence of death.
Person & Work of Jesus Christ – We believe the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit & born of the Virgin Mary, in order to reveal God & redeem sinful man. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a propitiary & substitutionary sacrifice & that our redemption is made sure to us by His resurrection from the dead. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is now in Heaven, exalted at the right hand of God where, as High Priest for His people, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor & Advocate. We believe in a pre-tribulation rapture of the Church & premillenial return of our Lord Jesus Christ & in His Kingdom reign on the earth.
The Holy Spirit – We believe that the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Godhead, in the present age indwells all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, baptizes them into the Body of Christ & seals them unto the day of redemption & we believe that every believer is commanded of God to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
The Personality of Satan – Satan is a person, the author of sin & the cause of the fall; he is the arch enemy of God & man and he shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire.
Salvation – We believe that salvation is the gift of God offered to man by grace & received by personal faith in Jesus Christ, and that this faith is manifested in works pleasing to God. We believe that all true believers once saved shall be kept saved forever.
The Church – We believe that the Church is a spiritual organism made up of all born again persons in this age irrespective of their affiliation with Christian organizations.
Conclusion – We believe this body of doctrine is a sacred trust to be preserved & taught in its purity, but we also believe that it teaches a life to be lived & a Gospel to be preached.
