What We Believe

We make no claim that these statements contain all the truth in the Bible, only that it covers orthodox fundamental matters.

THE SCRIPTURES INSPIRED



The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to men, the infallible and inerrant rule of faith and conduct, and superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason. (2 Tim. 3:15,17; 1 Pet. 1:23-25; Heb. 4:12)


THE ONE TRUE GOD


The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed “I AM,” and has further revealed Himself in three persons as embodying the principles of relationship and association, by simultaneously existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; Mark 12:29; Isa. 43:10, 11; Matt. 28:19)


MAN: HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION


Man was created good and upright, for God said, “Let us make man in our image and after our likeness.” Man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. (Gen. 1:26-31; Gen. 3:17; Ro.5:12-21)


THE SALVATION OF MAN


Conditions of Salvation

The Grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward God and through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,and being justified by grace, has become heir of God according to the hope of eternal life. (Titus 2:11; 3:5-7; Ro. 10:13-15; Luke 24:47)


SANCTIFICATION PROCESS


By the power of the Holy Spirit we strive to obey the command, “Be ye holy, for I am holy.” Sanctification is the will of God for all believers, and should be earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to God’s Word. (Heb. 12:14; 1 Pet.1:15,16; 1 Thess. 5:23,24; 1 John 2:6)


THE CHURCH


The church is the holy Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer is an integral part of the church, and their names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. (1 Thess. 2:4)


THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF JESUS


The revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ from heaven, the salvation of national Israel, and the millennial reign of Christ on the earth are Scriptural promises and our hope. (2 Thess. 1:7; Rev.19:11-16; Ro. 11:25; Rev. 20:1-7)


THE LAKE OF FIRE


The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and whosoever is not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns fire and brimstone, which is the second death. (Rev. 19:20; 20:10-15)


THE NEW HEAVENS AND NEW EARTH


We, as promised in the Scriptures, look for a new heavens and a new earth wherein righteousness dwells. (2 Pet. 3:13; Rev. 21:1)
