We Believe

1. We Believe
the Scriptures, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writings, complete as the revelation of God’s standard for holy living, and the supreme and final authority in all matters to which they speak. (II Tim. 3:16-17II Peter 1:21)

2. We Believe
in one God existing in three distinct yet equal persons of the same essence – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Mark 12:29I Peter 1:2Matt. 28:19I John 5:7)

3. We Believe
that Jesus Christ, the Divine Son of God and perfect Man, was begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary; lived on earth in a body, being fully human; was tempted and tried in all things as we are, yet without sin; willingly obeyed the Father’s will, going to the cross and dying to make complete atonement for our sins. We believe that He was bodily raised from the dead and that He ascended to the right hand of the Father where He makes intercession for us as our Mediator and High Priest. (Luke 1:30-35)

4. We Believe
that the Holy Spirit convicts, saves, teaches, justifies, and sanctifies believers, and empowers them for service. (Acts 5:3-4)

5. We Believe
that all men, being descendants of Adam who willfully disobeyed God’s command, are by nature slaves to sin destined for eternal torment in Hell. We believe that all may be saved; that the means of salvation is the blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross at Calvary; and that personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is both necessary and sufficient for salvation. We believe that the redeemed are delivered from both the present power of sin and the eternal punishment for sin. (Romans 3:21-285:12-196:16-23I Corinthians 15:22John 3:16-18Colossians 1:13,14Revelation 20:11-15)

6. We Believe
in the personal, visible, and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 1:11John 14:3Titus 2:13Luke 17:24Rev. 1:7James 5:8Hebrews 10:37Rev. 3:11)

7. We Believe
the true church of God, the bride of Christ, is composed of believers called out from all nations, created anew in Christ Jesus. We also believe the ordinances of the church are two: baptism of believers by immersion; and the Lord’s Supper. (Eph. 5:23-27I Cor. 12:13Matt. 3:15-17Acts 8:1236-39I Cor. 11:23-29)

8. We Believe
in the bodily resurrection of both the just and the unjust; the just to the everlasting presence of God in Heaven, and the unjust to everlasting separation from God in Hell. (I Thess. 4:16-17)

9. We Believe
We believe that God created mankind male and female that they might be joined in marriage, one *man with one **woman as long as both shall live, and that any sexual union outside of such a marriage is detestable to God.  We believe that anyone who practices homosexuality, bestiality, incest, or adultery is under divine judgment.  These, as also fornication, pornography, and lewd behavior or speech, make those who practice them unfit for Christian service. (Genesis 2:18–25Hebrews 13:4Leviticus 20:10-23Romans 1:25–32Ephesians 5:3–7)

*Biological Man by birth        **Biological Woman by birth

10. We Believe
that God created mankind in his own image and that each human being is therefore of infinite worth. There is no place in our teaching or practice for racial or national prejudice. While it is self-evident that different areas of service are available to people of different abilities, we believe that all men are to be respected equally. Likewise, while God has ordained differences of service between men and women at home and in the church, they are equal in receiving God’s grace. We believe that human life is to be protected from the time of conception until its natural end. We believe that a society which permits induced abortion, infanticide, or euthanasia for any reason brings upon itself God’s judgment for murder. (James 2:1-9Colossians 3:9-11Galatians 3:28Genesis 9:6Jeremiah 1:5Proverbs 24:11-12Deuteronomy 19:11-1321:1-9II Kings 23:36-24:4)
