What We Believe

    We believe the Holy Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, were written by men divinely inspired by God through the Holy Spirit, without error, to be the final authority in faith and life.
        (Isaiah 40:8; II Peter 1:21; II Timothy 3:16-17)
    We believe that God is eternally existent, co-equal in three persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
        (Genesis 1:28; Matthew 28:18; Luke 3:22; John 1:1)
    We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God, in His virgin birth and sinless life; that He is true God and true man; that He died as a redeeming substitute for our sins, was buried and bodily resurrected, and ascended to the right hand of the Father; and, in His personal return in power and glory.
        (Isaiah 7:14, 53:5; Matthew 1:23; John 1:14; Acts 2:29-36; Galations 3:13; Hebrews 4:15; Phillipians 2:6-11; I Thessalonians 4:16; I Timothy 2:5)
    We believe in the Holy Spirit as the third person of the Trinity, whose present ministry is convicting us of our sins; and, who indwells the Christian; comforting, teaching and empowering the Christian to lead a godly life.
        (Ezekial 36:27; Matthew 3:11, John 14:16-17, 16:8; Acts 1:8)
    We believe the man was created in the image of God to be in fellowship with God and to reconcile the earth to God. We believe man was tempted by Satan, fell under the influence of sin, became disobedient to God by choice and was helpless to restore himself, thus forsaking his divine mission in life. Man is the object of God’s love in Jesus Christ, who came so that man could resume his divine mission in life.
        (Genesis 1:26-28; John 3:15-17; Romans 3:23, 5:12-21; I Corinthians 3:5-10, 16:8; Acts 1:8)
    We believe that salvation is only by grace, not by works, and is recieved by faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, thereby permitting us to be reconciled to God.
        (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:16; Romans 10:9-10, 13)
    We believe in the resurrection of the dead; the believer to life everlasting in Heaven and the unrepentant to the resurrection of judgment of everlasting punishment in Hell.
        (Matthew 6:20-21; Revelation 20:11-15, 21:8)
    We believe that Satan rebelled against God; became the author of sin; is at war with God for control of the earth; is the enemy of God and man and that he and his followers shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire.
        (Job 1:6; Matthew 4:1-11; Luke 22:31; Ephesians 6:11-12; Revelation 20:10)
