What We Believe

What We Believe

  1. We believe in the full, verbal inspiration and authority of the Scriptures.
  2. We believe in the one true God, existing eternally in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe in the deity, virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, and present intercession of Jesus Christ.
  4. We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, and His work of convicting, regenerating, indwelling, sealing, and filling.
  5. We believe in the creation of man in the image of God, his fall, and his need for salvation through Jesus Christ.
  6. We believe in salvation through grace, totally apart from works. The only conditions are faith and repentance.
  7. We believe in righteous living and good works in the life of a believer as evidence of salvation, but not as a means for obtaining it.
  8. We believe in the personality of Satan and his present position as god of this world, in opposition to God while limited in power by Him.
  9. We believe in the visible, personal, and pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ, including His return for the church before the tribulation.
  10. We believe in the eternal conscious existence of both the saved and the unsaved: the saved in Heaven, and the unsaved in Hell.
  11. We believe in one true Church composed of all true believers of this age, organized into autonomous, but cooperating local churches.
