Doctrinal Statement Summary

Full Doctrinal Statement Here

  • We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments in their entirety, to be the verbally inspired Word of God.
  • We believe that God is Triune; that there are three eternal, co-equal, divine persons in the Godhead: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and these three are one God.
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men.
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God.
  • We believe in the “Blessed Hope,” the personal, imminent, pretribulational and premillennial coming of Jesus Christ for His redeemed ones.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Godhead who indwells and seals each believer unto the day of redemption. He is the Divine Teacher who guides believers into all truth.
  • We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and is consequently alienated from God. Man is totally depraved and unable to remedy his lost condition.
  • We believe that salvation is the gift of God; that in grace He bestows eternal life upon any person who by faith trusts the Lord Jesus Christ as His own Savior from sin.
  • We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God’s power and are secure in Christ forever.
  • We believe that all the saved are called to live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord.
  • We believe that it is incumbent upon all believers to witness by life and by word to the truths of Holy Scripture and to seek to proclaim the Gospel to all men everywhere.
  • We believe that the Church, which is the body and espoused bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of all born-again persons of this present age.
  • We believe that the local church is autonomous and, consequently, free of any external authority or control.
  • We believe that the Scriptures, interpreted in their natural, literal sense, reveal divinely determined dispensations.
  • We believe that Satan is a person, the author of sin and the cause of the fall; that he is the open and declared enemy of God and man.
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment.
