Statement of Faith

What We Believe

  • We believe in the Divine inspiration, and the integrity, finality, and soul sufficiency of the Bible as the Word of God and that it is of supreme and final authority in faith and practice.
  • We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the divine Son of God, died for our sins according to the Scripture as a substitutionary sacrifice and that all who believe in Him are justified by faith in His blood.
  • We believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and His present life there for us as Intercessor, High Priest and Advocate.
  • We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but spiritual death, which is separation from God.
  • We believe in the personality of the Holy Spirit as set forth in the Word of God and that He is essential to the salvation and regeneration of the lost.
  • We believe that salvation is by grace through faith, and those who repent and receive by faith the Lord Jesus become the children of God and are indwelt by the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, but each in his own order; and the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost in the Lake of Fire.
  • We believe in the rapture of the Church which will take place before the tribulation period, when the "Lord Himself shall descend from heaven: to catch up His people to meet Him in the air".
  • We believe in the personal, premillenial, bodily return of the Lord Jesus to set up His Kingdom upon the earth.
  • We believe that that Scriptures set forth immersion as the only method of baptism because it pictures the believer’s death, burial, and resurrection with Christ into newness of life; it is a commandment given by the Lord unto all believers.
  • We believe that the bread and cup used in the Communion Service are symbolic of the broken body and the shed blood of the Lord Jesus, and that partaking of these elements is a commandment given by the Lord to all who believe.
