What We Believe
We believe that the Bible (the King James Version) is the complete revelation from God. Holy men of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, wrote in obedience to the divine command. We, therefore, believe the Bible to be the perfect Word of God. The Bible is our source of faith and practice and the final authority on all spiritual matters as it relates to doctrine, history, prophecy, and stewardship.
We believe in one God that is fully revealed in three distinct persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (also known as the Trinity). God in His person possesses Omniscience, Omnipotence, Omnipresence, and Immutability.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh. He was born of a virgin, sinless in His life, vicarious in His death, powerful in His resurrection and glorious in His coming. We believe that He is now exercising His high priestly work and will soon return. We believe in the pre-tribulation rapture of the church, which will be followed by 7 years of great tribulation and the return of Jesus Christ to judge the sin of the entire unbelieving world and establish an earthly reign for 1000 literal years.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that Christians receive the Holy Spirit at the moment of salvation and that He remains our constant source of strength and power. We believe the Holy Spirit convicts and regenerates the sinner to salvation. He also indwells the believer as the means of assurance, power, and wisdom.
The Fall of Man
We believe that man was created in the image of God and by his own choice fell into sin. By this act, he became a sinner and was put under the condemnation of God. He was severed from the life of God and became spiritually dead. Man is now totally depraved and does not possess any qualities whereby he might reconcile himself to God or save himself.
Salvation of Sinners
We believe that the salvation of sinners is by grace. The lost person does not possess any means of saving himself. God has provided a way through the death of Christ to save sinners. We are saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Man is quickened by the new birth to a position of justification before God which consists of the forgiveness of sins and the removal of its guilt and punishment. Through this, he is reconciled to God and made a new creature in Christ Jesus.
The Freeness of Salvation
We believe that the blessings of salvation are made free to sinners by the gospel. We believe that the Bible teaches whosoever will salvation and nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner, except for their own voluntary rejection of the gospel.
The Security of the Believer
We believe that those who believe and receive Jesus Christ as Savior are eternally secure. We are now in possession of eternal life and shall never be in danger of condemnation or the loss of our salvation. This assurance rests on the finished work of Christ which places us as a beloved child of God in our relationship.
The Doctrine of the Church
We believe that the visible church is a congregation of baptized believers, practicing New Testament principles, believing its doctrines, observing its ordinances, and exercising its autonomy. We believe that it is the responsibility of the local church to propagate the gospel to the world. Every church and Christian should have a part in this ministry.
Heaven and Hell
We believe that every person has a soul of eternal duration that will live on forever beyond their human life. God’s Word describes only two eternal destinations for the souls of mankind. Heaven is the glorious destination for the believer in Christ. It is a place that God has prepared for His people. Hell is the dreadful destination for those who have refused God’s grace and have remained in their lost condition until the time of death. It is a place of literal fire, torment, anguish, and pain. Hell will eventually be cast into the eternal lake of fire, which is known in scripture as the second death.
