What We Believe

The Bible – We believe that the Bible is God’s written revelation to humans through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. We believe it is the very Word of God, without error in the original documents, and is complete, objective, and solely sufficient as the guide for believers (2 Timothy 3:16, Matthew 4: 4)

God  – We believe that there is but one true and living God (Deuteronomy 6: 4) that has three Persons God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit, (Matthew 28: 19) co-eternal, interdependent, and unified. We believe that they are equal in nature but distinct in function (Phil.2:5-11), and that God is the creator of all existence (Genesis 1: 1), yet He himself has always existed (Psalm 90:2).

Jesus Christ – We believe that Jesus is the second person of the Trinity (Matthew 28: 19).  That He is the creator and head of all things visible and invisible (Colossians 1: 15 – 18).  We believe He is the only God-man, 100% God and 100% Man at the same time. We believe that He was immaculately conceived of a virgin, lived a 33-year sinless life in complete obedience to the will of God The Father, and that He died a vicarious and atoning death on the cross for the sins of the people whom God had chosen before the foundation of the world to be saved (Ephesians 1:4). We believe in His second coming to establish the kingdom that God promised Israel, and that it will include believers from every dispensation, ethnicity, and tongue. (Matt 28:19) Those believers will reign with Christ as kings and priests for all eternity with God in the new heaven and new earth. (Rev 5:9-10)

The Holy Spirit – We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity, God of Very God, possessing all the attributes of Divine Nature, and that He is co-equal with The Father and The Son. (Acts 5:3-4) We believe He indwells all believers from the moment of salvation, and is our guarantee of eternal salvation by sealing us until the return of Christ. (Ephesians 1: 13, 14). We believe the ministry of the church, and the Gospel, is under His direct authority (2 Corinthians 3:8)

Man – We believe that mankind was created by God in his image and likeness.  Man was created innocent and free of sin with intelligence, free will, and is morally responsible to God (James 3: 9). We believe that the sin of Adam caused mankind to lose his innocence that resulted to God’s judgment of spiritual and physical death Mankind was then imputed with the sin of Adam. (Romans 5:12)  He became inherently corrupt in nature and is incapable of choosing or doing what is acceptable to God a part from grace. (Ephesians 2:1-9)

Salvation – We believe that salvation is by the grace of God alone, through faith alone in Christ alone. It is not of works, lest any man should boast.  (Ephesians 2:8-9)  We believe that those whom God the Father has chosen are regenerated by the Holy Spirit and gifted by Him with repentant faith, and upon hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, believe to the saving of their soul. (Romans 10:9-10) We believe that all those saved are eternally secure and will never be separated from the love of God in Christ. (Romans 8:38-39)

The church – We believe that all who trust Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are instantly placed by The Holy Spirit into one spiritual body, the church (1 Corinthians 12: 12,13),and that the church belongs to Christ and not to people (Matthew 16: 18). We believe that the church had its beginning on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2: 1, 21) and will be completed at the coming of Christ for His own at the rapture (1 Thessalonians 4: 13, 18). We believe that the church is distinct from Israel (1 Corinthians 10: 32), a hidden mystery not revealed until this present age (Ephesians 3: 1). We believe that there are two ordinances that must be kept until the rapture of the church:  Baptism and Communion.  Salvation from sins is the prerequisite for baptism (Acts 4: 12) thus the act of baptism in itself does not save. Communion is a fellowship that memorializes the death of Christ.  We are instructed as members of the body of Christ to share in this celebration to show the Lord’s death until He comes again. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
