DOCTRINAL STATEMENT

We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and that it is the only infallible rule of faith and practice. (II Tim. 3:16-17; 11 Peter 1:20-21; John 10:35).

 

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons—-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Luke 3:21-22; II Peter 1:2; II Cor. 13-14; Deut. 6:4).

 

We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also that spiritual death which is separation from God; that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and actually sin in thought, word, and deed. (Rom. 5:12-21).

 

We believe that the only way to be saved is by faith in the blood sacrifice, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We believe in the eternal security of the believer. (John 3:16; 10:28; Eph. 2:8-9).

 

We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven, that He ever liveth to make intercession for all that come to God by him, and that He is the only Mediator between God and man. (Mark 16:19; Heb. 9:24; 1 John 2:1)

 

We believe that each one who receives the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior has been baptized by the Holy Spirit into the invisible church, which is the Body of Christ, and is indwelt by the Holy Spirit. (1 Cor. 12:13).

 

We believe in the imminent rapture of the Church BEFORE the Great Tribulation period, after which Christ will come with His Church to set up His kingdom of Heaven on earth. (Titus 2:13; Phil. 3:20; John 14:1-6; 1 Thess. 4).

 

We believe that Satan is a person, the author of the fall and that he will be eternally punished. (Gen. 3:15; Job 1:6-7; Rev. 20:2-10).

 

We believe that those who die in Christ are absent from the body and consciously present with the Lord in bliss. Those who die out of Christ are in conscious torment in Hades until the judgment of the Great White Throne when they will be cast into the Lake of Fire. (II Cor. 5:8; Luke 23:43; 16:19-31).

 

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust; in the eternal conscious punishment of the lost and the eternal joy of the saved. (I Cor. 15:28-29; Matt. 25:46; Isaiah 33:14; Rev. 21:4).

 

We believe that the two ordinances of the Church are the Lord’s Supper (Communion) and Water Baptism; that the immersion of a believer in water is Christian Baptism and that it is the will and command of Christ. (Rom. 6:1-5; Col. 2:12; Acts 2:41; 8:12; 8:36-38; 9:18; 10:47).
