The Scriptures: We believe that the bible is the verbally inspired Word of God and is inerrant in the original writings. The Bible being the revealed Word of God is the ground and foundation from which all claims of truth shall be substantiated. The Word of God is alive and quick! Through God’s sovereign hand, the Scriptures have been preserved and are the supreme and final authority. (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21; Hebrews 4:12)
God: We believe that there is only one true and living God existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each is a distinct Person, but all of one essence and all having the same nature, perfection and attributes, and each is worthy of precisely the same worship, confidence, and obedience. (Genesis 1:1-3, 26; Matthew 3:16, 17; John 1:1, 14, 10:30, 14:26, 15:26; Matthew 28:19)
Jesus Christ: We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, shed His blood on Calvary in our place, was buried, rose again and ascended to the Father according to the Scriptures (Luke 1:26-33, 22:20, 24:46)
Holy Spirit: We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, God and co-existent with the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit is the Chief Agent in the regeneration of the soul, the Chief Convictor of sin, and the Chief Comforter of the believer. Simultaneous with regeneration, the Holy Spirit baptizes the believer into the body of Christ, permanently indwells him and seals him in salvation for all eternity. The Holy Spirit is the giver of spiritual gifts to the believer. (John 16:1-13; Acts 5:3-4; Titus 3:5; Matthew 3:11; Ephesians 1:13-14; I Corinthians 12:1-1)
Man: We believe that man is the direct creation of God – body, soul and spirit. Therefore, man is not in any way a result of evolution, but, is made in God’s image. The sin and fall of Adam resulted in the fall of creation and mankind both physically and spiritually. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:10, 5:12, 8:18-23)
Salvation: We believe that all who, in faith, receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior are born again by the Holy Spirit and thus become the children of God. Salvation involves redemption, regeneration, sanctification and glorification. (Ephesians 1:7; Romans 10:9-10, 5:7-11; Colossians 1:13-14, 21-22; John 17:16-22; II Corinthians 5:17: I Corinthians 6:19)
Eternal Security: We believe that salvation is not only a gift from God but is sustained by Him as well. Salvation is wholly of the Lord, apart from the works of man. The Holy Spirit permanently indwells the believer and seals him in salvation for all eternity. Therefore, the believer shall be kept by the power of God through faith. (John 3:16, 10:27-29, 12:16-17, 26; Ephesians 1:13; 2:8-9; Philippians 1:6; I Peter 1:5; Jude 24-25)
“Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” (Habakkuk 2:2-3)
