What We Believe

Biblical Authority

We believe that the Bible is the Holy Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and is perfect and inerrant.

The Godhead (Trinity)

We believe in one true God eternally existing in three distinct persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) each of whom is fully and equally God; possess all of the divine nature and attributes.  Equal in every divine perfection and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.  (Deut. 6:4;Matt. 28:19; John 1:14John 10:30; 2 Cor. 13:14 Ex. 20:2-3; I Cor. 8:6; Rev. 4:11; I John 5:7).

God the Father:

We believe that God the Father is the first person of the Trinity equal with God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  That He is perfect, all-powerful, all-knowing, eternal and all-loving Creator of the Universe and all that is within it.

God the Son

We believe that Jesus Christ is the second person of the Trinity equal with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit and is the only begotten eternal Son of God.  Jesus was begotten of the Holy Spirit in a miraculous manner; born of Mary, a virgin, as no other man was ever born or ever can be, born of a woman and that He was both the Son of God and God the Son. 

God the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity.  Equal with God the Father and God the Son.  That He was active in the creation of the universe, that He restrains the evil one until God’s purpose is fulfilled; that He convicts of sin, righteousness and of judgment; that He is active in Salvation; He is the agent of New Birth; that He seals, endues, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies and helps the believer.  We also believe that the Holy Spirit gives spiritual gifts to believers for the purpose of edifying the church in accordance with the teachings of the scripture.

Man

We believe that Man was created in the image of God by the direct act of God.  That man is not a product of evolution.  We accept the Genesis account of creation as fact on how the Universe and Earth came into being.  We believe that Man rebelled against God in his choosing of sin over God.  We believe that man is fully depraved and in total need of the Salvation of Jesus Christ which is a free gift of God.

Satan

We believe in the personality of Satan, that he is the unholy god of this age, the author of all the powers of darkness and is destined to the judgment of eternal justice in the lake of fire.

Salvation

We believe that Jesus Christ, appointed by God the Father, became flesh and dwelt among us being fully God and fully Man living a sinless life.  He was crucified on the cross, buried and bodily resurrected on the 3rd day.  We believe that this sacrifice by Jesus Christ is the all-sufficient atoning sacrifice for all sins for all mankind for all time.  We believe that Jesus ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God performing His ministry of intercession.  We believe that one day He will return to reclaim His bride the church; and will come again to earth in bodily form, to set up His Millennial Kingdom.
