ABOUT THE BIBLE
We believe that the Holy Bible is God's Word. It is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative source of Christian doctrine and precept.
2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:19-21
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Gen. 1:26; Deut. 6:4; Matt. 3:16-17; Matt. 28:19
We believe that man was created in the image of God, but as the result of sin is lost and powerless to save himself.
Gen. 1:26-27; Gen. 2:7-3:19; Rom. 3:23; Rom. 5:12-21; Rom. 6:23
ABOUT JESUS AND SALVATION
We believe that the only hope for man is to believe in Jesus Christ, the virgin-born Son of God, who died to take upon Himself the punishment for the sin of mankind. We believe further in the bodily resurrection of Jesus from the dead. It is by receiving Him as Lord that man is made spiritually alive. This begins a relationship with the living Savior.
Jn. 1:12; Jn. 3:3-7; Jn. 5:24; Eph. 2:8-10; Heb. 9:11-28
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the saved and the lost, the eternal conscious existence of all men either in heaven or hell, and in divine judgments, rewards and punishments. We also believe that Jesus Christ will return in person to earth in power and glory.
Jn. 5:29; Acts 1:11; 1 Cor. 3:11-15; 1 Cor. 15:51-58; 2 Cor. 5:6-10; 1 Thes. 4:13-18; 2 Jn. 8; Rev. 19-20
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells those who have received Christ for the purpose of enabling them to live righteous and godly lives. Both the gifts and fruit of the Spirit are a continuing part of God's plan for His Church. It is God's will that each believer be filled with the Holy Spirit.
Gal. 3:2; Gal. 5:22; Rom. 8:5-9; Rom. 12:6-8; 1 Cor. 12:4-11; Eph. 4:7-12; Eph. 5:18
ABOUT THE CHURCH
We believe that the Church is the body of Christ and is composed of all those who, through belief in Christ, have been spiritually regenerated by the indwelling Holy Spirit. The mission of the Church is worldwide evangelism on the one hand, and the nurturing and discipling of Christians on the other. We believe in the ordinances of baptism and The Lord's Supper.
Matt. 28:18-20; Matt. 26:26-30; Matt. 28:18-20; Mk. 16:15; Rom. 6:3-4
