DOCTRINAL STATEMENT


  • We believe in the Scripture (Old and New Testament) as verbally inspired of God, inerrant in the original writings, and the supreme and final authority in faith and life (II Timothy 3:15-17; II Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119).

  • We believe in the one God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10, 11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22).

  • We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man (Luke 1:30-35; Matthew 1:18-23; Isaiah 7:14).

  • We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. All human beings are born with a sinful nature, and are sinners in thought, word and deed (Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Psalm 51:5; Ecclesiastes 7:29; John 6:44; Romans 5:12-21; I Corinthians 2:14)

  • We believe in salvation by confession of our sins and inviting Jesus into our hearts - through the blood of Jesus Christ (John 10:9,10).

  • We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven and in His present life there for us, as High Priest and Advocate (Romans 8:26-29; Luke 24:1-49; Matthew 29:19, 16:18; Acts 1:1-11).

  • We believe in the local church, which was established by Jesus Christ. The entrance into the church is based on a public confession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord; we believe in water baptism by immersion (John 10:9, 10, 3:13-17).

  • We believe in bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost (Matthew 24:31-46; Acts 24:15; Revelation 22:11, 20:12-15).

  • We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues (Acts 2:4; Joel 2:28) and in the Gifts of the Spirit such as healing, prophecy, and miracles (I Corinthians 12:1-12).
