Doctrinal Statement

The Scriptures: We believe the Bible, being inerrant in its original manuscripts, is the inspired, authoritative, and infallible Word of God. (2 Tim. 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21)

The Godhead: We believe there is one God eternally existent in three Persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Gen. 1:1, Deut. 6:4, Matt. 28:19, John 6:27, 10:30, Acts 5:3-4)

The Person and Work of Christ: We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isa. 7:14, Matt. 1:23, Luke 1:35), His perfect and sinless life (Rom. 10:4, Heb. 4:15, 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (1 Cor. 15:3, Eph. 1:7, Heb. 2:9), His resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Cor. 15:4-8), His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19, Acts 7:56), and His second personal advent in power and glory. (Acts 1:11, Rev.19:11)

Salvation: We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation, because of total depravity of the human nature; that men are justified solely by faith in the shed blood of Christ apart from works; that we are saved by God’s grace and through faith alone; and that our salvation is eternally secure — it cannot be forfeited or lost. (John 3:16-19,5:24, Rom.3:23,5:8-9, 8:31-39, Eph.2:8-10,Titus3:5)

The Resurrection of the Dead: We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost – they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (Daniel 12:1-2, John 5:21-29, 1Thess.4:15-17, Rev.20:4-6, 11-15)

Spirit Baptism: We believe in the Spirit baptism of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Rom. 6:3-10, 8:9, 1 Cor.12:12-13, Ga1.3:26-28)

The Ministry of the Holy Spirit: We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling every Christian is able to live a godly life. (Rom. 6:1-14, 8:13-14, 1 Cor. 3:16, 6:19-20, Eph. 4:30, 5:18)
