What We Believe

 

 
  • We believe that the Holy Bible, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, as originally written was verbally and plenarily inspired and the product of God through Spirit-controlled men and, therefore, is truth without any admixture of error for its matter.

  • We believe that there is one true and living God, Jehovah, eternally self-existent in three coequal Persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God; that he eternally co-existed co-equally with God and the Father and God the Holy Spirit.  We believe He lived a sinless life and died a vicarious and atoning death on the cross for man’s sins.

  • We believe in the Deity of the Holy Spirit as the eternal third person in the Godhead and that He was the agent in producing the Scriptures.

  • We believe in literal, personal, spiritual beings called angels who minister to believers.

  • We believe in the creation of man by the direct act of God. We believe that man was created perfect and innocent in God's image but willingly disobeyed God and thus fell into sin with the result that all men are born with a sinful nature so that all men commit sin.

  • We believe that a sinner can be saved only by God’s Grace and that faith in Christ is God’s only demand for forgiveness and justification.

  • We believe that the church as the Body of Christ is a spiritual and physical organization composed of people called out of the world and regenerated by the Holy Spirit.

  • We believe in the right of the church and state to function as separate institutions, neither controlling each other.

  • We believe in the bodily resurrection and everlasting blessedness of believers in Heaven and the bodily resurrection of unbelievers to final judgment and everlasting punishment in Hell.
