We Believe:

  1. The Scriptures, both Old and New Testament, to be the inspired word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men and the Divine and final authority for Christian faith;
  2. In one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit;
  3. That Jesus Christ is the true God and true man having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary; though He never sinned, He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures; Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate;
  4. That the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service;
  5. That man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is, therefore, lost and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained;
  6. That the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and, thus, become children of God;
  7. That once a person has been regenerated by the Holy Spirit, they are saved and become a child of God. As such, they cannot lose their salvation, nor can anything ever separate them from God;
  8. That the true Church, also known as the Bride of Christ, is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the Head;
  9. That those who have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit will endeavor to live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in grace and the knowledge of God;
  10. That water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during this present age; They are, however, not to be regarded as a means of salvation;
  11. In the personal and premillennial coming of our Lord Jesus Christ to gather His Church and take them to the place He has prepared in His Father’s house. This “Blessed Hope” has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer;
  12. In the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting joy with the Lord; of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting punishment.
