We believe that the entire Bible (both Old and New Testaments), is in fact the inspired Word of God, without error, and contains the revelation of His will for the salvation of mankind, and the divine and final authority for all Christ-based faith and living.
(Luke 24:27,44; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)
We believe that there is one God. We believe that the Bible clearly describes God as a Trinity existing in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God has always existed and will always continue to exist and be the only God. There were none before Him and shall be none after Him. We also realize that many aspects of God’s nature including His omnipotence, omniscience, holiness, and tri-unity are beyond human understanding. (Matthew 28:18-19; Mark 12:29; Acts 5:3-4; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:1-3)
GOD The Father.
We believe that God the Father created all things in heaven and on earth. He created human beings out of His love for us and He desires a personal relationship with each of us.
GOD The Son, Jesus.
We believe in the first coming of Jesus Christ and in His deity that he is both God and man in the flesh, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. (Luke 1:26-38; John 1:14; 14:6-11; Hebrews 1:1-8)
We believe in His life, His miracles, and the blessed personal premillennial second coming and return to power and glory of the Lord Christ and establishment of His Kingdom on Earth. (Acts 1:8-12; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Hebrews 9:28; Revelation 1:5-8)
GOD The Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Holy Spirit regenerates us and is absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful people. We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to convict us, making us aware of our sins and the salvation that is available through Christ. He regenerates, guides, instructs, and empowers the believer for godly living and service.
(Psalm 51:10-12; Ephesians 1:12-14; Ephesians 4:29-31)
We believe that man was originally created in the image of God and sinless, but fell into the curse of sin, and is therefore lost and subject to judgment. There is nothing we can do to save ourselves from this judgment. We can however, accept the death of Jesus and shed of His blood as the sacrifice in place of our own punishment and eternal death, by acknowledging God and accepting the free gift of salvation. (Jeremiah 17:9; Romans 3:10-26; 1 Thessalonians 1:7-9)
We believe that the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ provides the only way of justification and salvation for all those who believe in Him. Any who attach additional works of man as a requirement for salvation are false in that they infer Jesus’ death is insufficient in and of itself to save, and that human beings somehow have the capability to save themselves.
(Romans 3:24-25; 1 Corinthians 15:1-5; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 John 1:7; 2:1-2)
We believe that through the shed of Christ’s blood and atoning death, Jesus was resurrected and ascended into Heaven at the right hand of God the Father, to overcome all death, fulfilling the covenant to our forefathers and completing the process of our own salvation from eternal death. (1 Corinthians 15:5-10; Hebrews 10:12-22; 1 John 2:1-2)
We also believe in the upcoming second resurrection of both the saved and the lost – those who are saved to the resurrection of life, and those who are lost to the resurrection of condemnation. (Daniel 12:2-3; Matthew 25:46; Revelation 20:4-6, 10-15)
Accepting the Sinner, Denouncing the Sin.
We believe that no sin is too big for God to forgive. Therefore, as faithful disciples we should be open and eager to share the Gospel with everyone regardless of their sin or affliction. However, making Jesus the Lord of our lives means striving towards holiness and turning away from our sinful nature. Therefore, while being open to all sinners, we ought not accept, ignore, or promote any sin as permissible.
We believe the above tenets to make up the basis for all faith on which we all should believe and agree. We have intentionally omitted many statements and beliefs regarding some areas of disagreement (i.e.: festivals & observances, prayer & practices, predestination, prophecy, speaking in tongues, etc.) on which agreement is not essential for actual salvation.
