What We believe...


ABOUT THE BIBLE

We believe the Holy Scripture of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally and plenary inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible, and God-breathed, and therefore are the final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and  New Testaments are the complete and divine revelation of God to man. The Scriptures shall be interpreted according to their normal grammatical-historical meaning. (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21)


ABOUT GOD

We believe in one triune God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; each co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14; John 14:10, 26)


ABOUT THE PERSON AND WORK OF CHRIST

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of  the virgin Mary, in order that he might reveal God and redeem sinful men. (Isaiah 7:14,9:6; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-2, 14; II Corinthians 5:19-21; Galatians 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-8)


We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative, substitutionary sacrifice; and that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead. (Acts 2:18-36; Romans 3:24-25; I Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; I Peter 1:3-5)


ABOUT SALVATION

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. (John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7, 2:8-10; I Peter 1:18-19)


ABOUT ETERNAL SECURITY

We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever. (John 6:37-40, 10:27-30; Romans 8:1, 38-39; I Corinthians 1:4-8; I Peter 1:4-5)


ABOUT THE RETURN OF CHRIST

We believe in that “blessed hope”, the personal, imminent return of Christ who will rapture his church prior to the seven-year tribulation period. At the end of the tribulation Christ will personally and   visibly return, with his saints to establish his earthly Messianic Kingdom which was promised to the Nation of Israel. (Psalm 89:3-4, Daniel 2:31-35, Zechariah 14:4-11, I Thessalonians 1:10, 4:13-18, Titus 2:13, Revelation 3:10, 19:11-16, 20:1-6)


ABOUT THE ETERNAL STATE OF THE SAVED

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, 12-13)


ABOUT CREATION

We believe that God created the universe in six literal,  24-hour   periods. We reject evolution, the Day-Age Theory, and Theistic   Evolution as unscriptural theories of origin. (Genesis 1-2, Exodus 20:11)
