Listed below is a brief explanation of our doctrinal beliefs in a few key areas. You can click HERE to download our complete doctrinal statement.
1- The Holy Scriptures
We believe the Holy Scriptures to be the
verbally inspired Word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant
in the original writings, infallible, and God-breathed.
2- The Godhead
We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons-- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections.
3- Jesus Christ
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross for all mankind as a vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice, and that the sufficiency of this atoning sacrifice to accomplish the redemption and justification of all who trust in Him is assured by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead.
4- The Fall of Man
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam's sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and that man, of himself, is utterly unable to remedy his lost condition.
We believe that salvation is the gift of God, wholly available 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.
6- Eternal Security
We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God's power and are thus secure in Christ forever.
7- The Church
We believe that the Church, which is the body and bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of all born-again persons of this present age. We believe that the establishment and continuance of the local church is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures.
We believe that all men everywhere are lost and condemned; and that it is the obligation of the saved to witness by life and by word to God's saving grace and to seek to proclaim the Gospel to the world.
9- The Eternal State
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men: the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment.
