What We Believe

The Scriptures: We believe that the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God 
and is inerrant in the original writings. The Bible being the revealed Word of 
God is the ground and foundation from which all claims of truth shall be 
substantiated. The Word of God is alive and quick! Through God’s sovereign 
hand, the Scriptures have been preserved and are the supreme and final 
authority. (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21; Hebrews 4:12)

God: We believe that there is only one true and living God, existing in three 
persons — Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each is a distinct Person, but they are 
all of one essence; they all have the same nature, perfection and attributes, 
and each is worthy of precisely the same worship, confidence and obedience. 
(Genesis 1:1-3, 26; Matthew 3:16,17; John 1:1,14, 10:30, 14:26, 15:26; 
Matthew 28:19)

Jesus Christ: We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, begotten by the 
Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; that he shed His blood on Calvary in our 
place, was buried, rose again and ascended to the Father, according to the 
Scriptures. (Luke 1:26-33, 22:20, 24:46

Holy Spirit: We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity — 
God — and coexistent with the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit is the Chief 
Agent in the regeneration of the soul, the Chief Convictor of sin and the Chief 
Comforter of the believer. Simultaneous with regeneration, the Holy Spirit 
baptizes the believer into the body of Christ, permanently indwells him and 
seals him in salvation for all eternity. The Holy Spirit is the giver of spiritual gifts 
to the believer. (John 16:1-13; Acts 5:3-4; Titus 3:5; Matthew 3:11; Ephesians 1:
13-14; I Corinthians 12:1-11)

Man: We believe that man is the direct creation of God — body, soul and spirit. 
Therefore, man is not in any way a result of evolution but is made in God’s 
image. The sin and fall of Adam resulted in the fall of creation and mankind, 
both physically and spiritually. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:10, 5:12, 8:18-23)

Salvation: We believe that all who, in faith, receive the Lord Jesus Christ as 
Savior are born again by the Holy Spirit and thus become the children of God.  
Salvation involves redemption, regeneration, sanctification and glorification. 
(Ephesians 1:7; Romans 10:9-10, 5:7-11; Colossians 1:13-14, 21-22; John 17:
16-22; II Corinthians 5:17; I Corinthians 6:19)

Baptism and Communion: Water baptism by immersion soon after accepting 
Christ as personal Savior, is a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to a 
new life. The Lord's Supper is a memorial service setting forth in sacred and 
symbolic manner the death of the Lord Jesus Christ; all true believers and only 
believers should share in it. (Acts 2:38-41; I Corinthians 11:23-26)

Eternal Security: We believe that salvation is not only a gift from God but is 
sustained by Him as well. Salvation is wholly of the Lord, apart from the works of 
man. The Holy Spirit permanently indwells the believer and seals him in 
salvation for all eternity. Therefore, the believer shall be kept by the power of 
God through faith. (John 3:16, 10:27-29, 14:16-17, 26; Ephesians 1:13; 2:8-9; 
Philippians 1:6; I Peter 1:5; Jude 24-25)

Future Events: There will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead; of the 
believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and of the unbeliever 
to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment. (Daniel 12:2; John 5:28-29)
