"Standing on the Word!" - John 1:1
We believe the Bible to be the divinely inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost.
(II Timothy 3:16-17; I Peter 1:21; Matthew 3:15-17; II Corinthians 13:14)
We believe in Jesus Christ deity, being both God and man; that He was born of a virgin and that He lived a sinless life, in which He taught and performed mighty works, wonders, and signs revealed in the Gospels; that He was crucified, died for our sins, and was raised from the dead bodily. Later He ascended to the Fathers right hand where He is the head of the Church, intercedes for believers, and shall literally return to earth in a personal, visible and imminent manifestation.
(Matthew 1:18, 21-23; Hebrews 4:15; Matthew 28:6; Matthew 16:18, Acts 1:11)
We believe in salvation through the redeeming blood of Christ by repentance to God. We are justified by our faith in Jesus Christ and our confession of His Lordship in our lives. We believe that such salvation is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership, or our effort and is solely of grace.
(Hebrews 9:22; Romans 10:9-10,13; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 6:23)
We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides divine healing for us in answer to believing prayer.
(I Peter 2:24; Psalms 103:2-3; James 5:15)
We believe that a true believer is eternally secure, that we cannot lose our salvation, but that sin will interrupt the joy of our fellowship with God and bring the loving chastisement of our Heavenly Father.
(John 10:28-30, John 3:16, Romans 8:1, Hebrews 9:11-12)
We believe that it is the goal of every believer to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
(John 10:28-30; John 3:16; Romans 8:1; Hebrews 9:11-12)
We believe in water baptism and the observance of the Lords Supper.
(John 22:19-20; Mark 14:22-24; Matthew 26:26-28, Matthew 28:19-20)
