God the Father
We believe in One Holy God, eternally existing, omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient, manifesting Himself in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one in power, nature, attributes, and Glory.
(Gen. 1:1,26, Pro. 30:4, Mk 12:29, II Cor. 13:14, Jn. 1:14, Acts 5:3,4, Matt. 28:19-20)
God the Holy Spirit
We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit – the third person of the trinity. In the present dispensation, the Holy Spirit has a special work: He convicts men of sin, righteousness, and judgment; He sanctifies all who believe, baptizing them into the body of Christ; indwells all who believe; intercedes in prayer; reveals the truth; and directs all true worship.
(Jn. 16:7-11, Rom. 8:9, 26, 27, Phil. 3:3, Eph, 1:13-14, I Cor. 12:13, Acts 5:3,4)
God the Son
We believe that Christ was born of the Virgin Mary, conceived by the Holy Spirit, and that He is true God and true man. (Matt. 1:8-25, Isa. 7:14, Phil. 2:6-11, Lk. 1:26-35) We believe in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and in His bodily presence at the right hand of God as our High Priest and Advocate. (Lk. 24:36-43, Jn. 11:25-26, Heb 9:11, Eph. 1:20, Col. 3:1) We believe in the second coming of Christ according to the Scriptures.
(Jn 14:1-3, I Thes. 4:14-18)
We believe in the great commission given by our Lord to all Christians, to evangelize the world, and that this evangelization is the great mission of the church. We believe that the pattern to follow is first at home, then to the surrounding areas, then to the uttermost parts of the earth. (Matt. 28:19-20, Acts 1:8) We believe that the New Testament order of a Local Church is a body of baptized believers; organized, independent, self-governing, and voluntarily associated together for the service of God. (Acts 2:41-47) We believe that Baptism is an identification with and testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ – and the first step of obedience following salvation (Matt. 28:19-20, Acts 8:37-39). We also believe that the Lord’s Supper is a commemoration of His death to be practiced until He comes again and the privilege of all believers and should always be preceded by self-examination (I Cor. 11:23-34). These we believe to be the two ordinances of the Church.
We believe that the scriptures are verbally inspired by God and contain the complete and in errant message God intended and therefore are our final authority. (II Tim. 16-17)
We believe in the sinfulness of man – that all human beings fall short of the glory of God and need to be saved from sin by faith in Jesus Christ. We believe concerning the atonement that Jesus Christ became the sinners substitute and sacrifice before God and died as the propitiation for the sins of the whole world. We believe that salvation is by grace through faith and not of works; saving faith will maintain good works in the life of the believer. (Acts 4:12, Jn. 3:14-18, Eph. 2:8-9)
We believe the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the lost. (Rev. 20:10-15, Rev. 21:1-4)
We believe in the reality and personality of Satan.(Rev. 20:2-3, Isa 14:9-17, Jn 8:44)
