Doctrinal Statement

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons called the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – and these are of one essence and equal in attributes and perfection – therefore to be honored and worshipped as the true God.
Matthew 3:16,17; 28:19,20; 2 Corinthians 13:14

We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the infallible, inerrant Word of God, a divine revelation. The original writings were verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit, and are the all-sufficient rule of faith and practice, to which nothing can be added nor taken away. 2 Timothy 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:21

We believe that the historic person of Jesus Christ was God incarnate, incorporating the mystery of being both fully God and fully man. He was and is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe, the bodily expression of God’s indescribable love, the fulfillment of all divine prophesy and the divine and only provision for man’s salvation. 1 John 3:5; 1 Timothy 2:5

We believe in His divinity, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His shed blood and suffering on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory. Hebrews 1:5-10; Luke 1:35; John 1:14, 29;
1 Peter 1:18, 19

We believe that Jesus is the Mediator, the sole Priest, Prophet, King, Savior and Head of the Church. Colossians 1:18  It belongs to His Majesty from His throne of glory, to rule and teach the Church, through His Word and Spirit. He is the Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person, is co-equal with God in all His attributes, and is sent by the Lord Jesus Christ from the Father, to convict the world of sin, to regenerate, indwell, guide, and teach the believer, and to empower him to live in victory over sin. John 15:26; 16:7, 8, 13 We believe that with the power of the Holy Spirit we can, both individually and corporately, do the works of Christ to the honor and glory of God so that His character in action will be experienced by ourselves and be discernable to the world. Ephesians 5:18

We believe in the existence of a distinct order of created, yet spiritual beings known as Angels. Matthew 18:10; Luke 1:19, 1 Peter 3:22  Angels are ministring spirits sent forth to minister to those who shall be heirs of salvation; they guard, defend, and deliver God’s people, Acts 5:19; 27:23, 24, and assist God in carrying out His work on the earth. All angles have supernatural powers subjected to God’s sovereign purposes. Job 1-2

We believe that Satan is a real supernatural personality, a fallen angel of great power, cunning and wickedness, the enemy of God and of all good, seeking the destruction of Christ and the eternal ruin of every soul, Mark 1:13; John 13:2, but is limited in the scope of his power by God. Job 1:12, 2:1-6; 1 Corinthians 10:13

We believe that many angels fell together with Satan, Revelation 12:7-9, beings the Scriptures now identify as demons. Though under the direct control of Satan to do his will, they are limited by and serve the ulitmate purposes of God. 1 Samuel 19:9;
1 Corinthians 5:5; 2 Corinthians 12:7

We believe that Man was created in the image of God, but in the sin of the first Adam the whole human race fell and apart from Christ is spiritually dead and lost.
Genesis 1:26; Romans 3:23, 5:12

We believe that Salvation is a free gift of God’s grace based on the substitutionary death of Christ on the cross. Spiritual life may be received, not by human merit or works, but through faith in Christ as personal Savior. All who have received salvation through faith in Christ are kept secure in their salvation by God’s keeping power.
John 1:12, 13; 5:24; 10:27-29; Ephesians 1:7, 2:8; 1 Peter 2:24; 1 John 5:13.

We believe that the Church consists of all those who truly believe on Jesus Christ, that it is the Body and Bride of Christ, and it’s mission is to witness for Christ among all nations. We believe that through the Holy Spirit there is a communion or a spiritual unity of all believers in Christ, thus constituting both the visible and invisible kingdom of God on Earth. 1 Corinthians 12:12, 13; Ephesians 4:4; Colossians 1:18; Revelation 21:9

We believe in Water Baptism we are making a public declaration of our trust in Christ alone for salvation. In the observance of Communion we are remembering Christ’s death and looking forward to His return. Matthew 28:19, 20; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26

We believe there will be a bodily Resurrection of the just and of the unjust; the just resurrected unto life, the unjust resurrected unto judgment. 1 Corinthians 15:50-54; Revelation 20:11-15

We believe the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent, visible and personal. This is the believer’s blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
