What We Believe
We believe the Bible, Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God and is good for reproof, for correction, and for instruction.
1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:15-17
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; Ephesians 4:4-6
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His presence at creation, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
Matthew 1:23; John 1:1-4 and 1:29; Acts 1:11 and 2:22-24; Romans 8:34; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4;2 Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:1-4 and 4:15
We believe that all men everywhere are lost and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, we believe that God will reward the righteous with everlasting life in heaven, and that He will banish the unrighteous to everlasting punishment in hell.
Luke 24:46-47; John 3:16 and 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23 and 10:9-13; 2 Corinthians 5:10-11; Ephesians 1:7 and 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life.
John 3:5-8; Acts 1:8 and 4:31; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 5:16-18; Ephesians 6:12; Colossians 2:6-10
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of everlasting life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment.
1 Corinthians 15:51-57; Revelation 20:11-15
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the church.
1 Corinthians 12:12, 27; Ephesians 1:22-23
We believe that the ministry of evangelism and discipleship is a responsibility of all followers of Jesus Christ.
Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15; 1 Peter 3:15
We believe God’s plan for human sexuality is to be expressed only within the context of marriage, that God created man and woman as unique biological persons made to complete each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female.
Genesis 1:27 and 2:24; Matthew 19:5-6; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 1:25-28; 1 Corinthians 6:9
We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to the ministry of evangelism.
Matthew 9:35-38, 22:37-39, and 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15 and 12:20-21; Galatians 6:10; Colossians 2:6-10; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; 1 Peter 3:15
We believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; and that we must have concern for the physical and spiritual needs of our fellowmen.
