Statement of Faith and What We Believe

  • The plenary and verbal inspiration of the inerrant and infallible Bible, both Old and New Testaments, a perfect, final authority.
     
  • The only true and living God; eternal, infinite, unchangeable, existing in three persons.
     
  • The essential deity, eternal existence, virgin birth, sinless life, physical resurrection from the dead and literal physical return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
     
  • The deity and personality of the Holy Spirit; the third person of the Holy Trinity who is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing believers into the body of Christ, indwelling, infilling, and sealing them unto the day of redemption.
     
  • The existence and activity of a host of spiritual beings both good (angels) and evil (demons); the evil ones being led by Satan.
     
  • The creation of mankind, out of the dust of the earth by God in His own image and likeness, which results in man being both material and immaterial, consisting of spirit, soul, and body.
     
  • The fall of all mankind in Adam and the universal depravity of the human race resulting in the guilty and lost condition of all men everywhere outside of Christ.
     
  • The absolute necessity of salvation by grace through personal faith in the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ, resulting in all true believers thus saved being kept saved forever.
     
  • The believer being able to live the Christian life in the present through appropriation of the exchanged life.
     
  • The Church, a spiritual organism made up of all believers, finding its expression in local organized groups, being the primary agent of God in the world.
     
  • The physical resurrection of all men--the saints to everlasting joy and bliss, the lost to everlasting torment.
