OUR DOCTRINAL STATEMENT

We believe all Scripture is verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit and therefore is infallible and inerrant.
  • (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:21, Matthew 5:18)

The Bible is the Word of God. We CANNOT accept the misleading statement: “The Bible contains the Word of God.”

There is one living and true God who exists in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

  • (Matthew 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14)

The Father is God (I Corinthians 8:6), the Son is God (Isaiah 9:6, John 1:1, 14) and the Holy Spirit is God (Acts 5:3-4)

The Lord Jesus Christ was born of a virgin

  • (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 1:26-38)

Jesus Christ rose bodily from the dead and ascended unto God the Father

  • (Matthew 28, Mark 16, I Corinthians 15, Romans 1:4)

Christ will return:

  • First, for the “dead in Christ” who will be resurrected bodily, and for those who are alive at His coming. This resurrection not only precedes His return to earth to reign 1,000 years, but also precedes the tribulation (I Thessalonians 4:13-18, 5:9)
  • Then, to reign 1,000 years on the earth (Revelation 20:1-6; II Timothy 2:12)

All men inherit a depraved nature and are lost sinners in need of salvation

(Romans 3:9-19, Ephesians 2:1-3)

God the Father has provided salvation through offering His Son on the cross of Calvary, and allowing His blood to be shed to atone for our sins

  • (Romans 3:25; Hebrews 9:22)

We are saved and justified when we recognize ourselves as sinners, and put our trust and faith in Christ as the Son of God and His finished work on the cross of Calvary. Salvation is by grace through faith plus nothing

  • (Romans 3:24, 4:5; Ephesians 2:8-9)

Once saved we cannot be lost; we are eternally secure in Christ

  • (John 3:16, 10:27-29; Philippians 1:6; Romans 8:38-39).

All believers should be baptized by immersion as an act of obedience, but not for securing their salvation

  • (Acts 2:41, 19:4-5; Matthew 28:19-20).
