Doctrinal Statement

We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the verbally inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, infallible, God-breathed, and the final authority for faith and life.

II Timothy 3:16-17, II Peter 1:20-21, Matthew 5:18


We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Deuteronomy 6:4, II Corinthians 13:14


We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, became man without any change in His eternal deity, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary; that He died on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins; that He arose bodily from the dead, and ascended into heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God as our High Priest and Advocate.

John 1:1-2, Luke 1:35, I Corinthians 15:3-4, I Peter 2:24, Acts 1:9-11, Romans 8:34, Hebrew 9:24, I John 2:1-2, I Peter 2:5


We believe in "that blessed hope," the personal, pre-millennial and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Zechariah 13:4-11, I Thessalonians 4:13-18, Revelation 19:11-16, I Thessalonians 1:10, I Thessalonians 5:9, Revelation 3:10


We believe that the purpose of the Holy Spirit is to reveal and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ to men, convict men of sin, and regenerate the sinner upon believing in Christ, and to indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living.

John 14:16-17, John 16:8-11, Romans 8:9, John 16:13, I Corinthians 12:12-24, Ephesians 1:13-14


We believe that the Bible teaches the personality of Satan, the author of sin and the curse of the fall; that he is the enemy of God and man; and he shall be eternally punished in the lake of fire.

Isaiah 14:12-17, Matthew 4:2-11, Revelation 20:10


We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that through Adam's sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and that man is totally depraved, and of himself utterly helpless to remedy his lost condition.

Genesis 1:26-27, Romans 3:22-23, Romans 5:12, Ephesians 2:1-3, 12


We believe the atoning death of Jesus Christ, and His resurrection, provide the only ground of justification and salvation for all who believe, and that only such as receive Jesus Christ by personal faith are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God; and all believers are kept by the power of God until the day of redemption.

John 1:12, Ephesians 2:8-10, I Peter 1:5 & 18-19, Romans 8:1, & 38-39, John 5:24


We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the just too everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and the unjust to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.

John 5:28-29, Revelation 20:4-15


We believe it is a privilege and duty of every believer to be a witness for Christ and to seek to proclaim the Gospel to all humanity.

Mark 16:15, Acts 1:8, II Corinthians 5:19-20
