About Us

We Believe

The Holy Scriptures

We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally and plenary inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible and God-breathed, and therefore are the final authority for faith and life. The 66 books of the Old and New Testaments are the complete and divine revelation of God to man. II Timothy 3:16-17; I Peter 1:20-21

The Godhead

We believe in the Triune God, eternally existing in three persons- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory and having the same attributes and perfections. Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14; John 14:10,26

The Person and Work of Christ

  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became a man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men. Luke 1:35; John 1:1-2
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and, that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead. Acts 2:18-36; Romans 3:24-25
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate. Hebrews 9:24; Romans 8:34
  • The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and, that He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption. John 16:8-11; Ephesians 1:13-14
  • We believe that He as the Divine Teacher who assists believers to understand and appropriate the Scriptures and that it is the privilege and duty of all saved to be filled with the Spirit. Ephesians 1:17-18, I John 2:20, 27
  • We believe that God is sovereign in the bestowal of spiritual gifts to every believer. Romans 12:3-8; Ephesians 4:7-12
  • The Total Depravity of Man

  • We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam’s sin the human race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God.
  • We believe that man is totally depraved, and for himself, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition. Romans 3:22-23, Ephesians 2:1-13; 4:17-19
  • Salvation

    We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7, 2: 8-10; I Peter 2:18-19

    The Eternal Security & Assurance of Believers

    We believe that all redeemed, once saved, are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever. John 6:37-40, 10:27-30; I Corinthians 1:4-8; I Peter 1:4-5

    The Church

  • We believe that the local church, which is the body and the espoused bride of Christ, is solely made up of born-again persons. I Corinthians 12:12-14
  • We believe the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures. Acts 14:27, 20:17, 28-32
  • We believe in the autonomy of the local church free of an external authority or control. Acts 13:1-4, 15:19-31; I Peter 5: 1-4
  • We recognize water baptism and the Lord’s Supper as the Scriptural ordinances of obedience for the Church in the age. Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 22:41-42; I Corinthians 11:23-26
  • Separation

    We believe that all the saved should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord; and, that the separation from all religious apostasy, all worldly and sinful pleasures, practices, and associations is commanded of God. Romans 12:1-2, 14:13; II Corinthians 6:1-4

    The Second Advent of Christ

    We believe in that “blessed hope” the personal, imminent return of Christ who will rapture His church prior to the 7-year Tribulation period. At the end of the Tribulation, Christ will personally and visibly return, with His saints, to establish His earthly, messianic Kingdom, which was promised to the Nation of Israel. Psalm 89:3-4; Daniel 2:31-45; Zechariah 14:4-11; Revelation 3:10, 19:11-16, 20:1-6

    The Eternal State

  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, saved to eternal life and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment. Matthew 25:46; John 5:28-29; Revelation 20:5-6, 12-13
  • We believe that the souls of the redeemed are, at death, absent from the body and present with the Lord, where in conscious bliss they await the first resurrection, when spirit, soul, and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord. Luke 23:43; I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:4-6
  • We believe that the souls of unbelievers remain, after death, in conscious punishment and torment until the second resurrection when, with soul and body reunited, they shall appear at the Great White Throne Judgment and shall be cast into the Lake of Fire, not to be annihilated but to suffer everlasting conscious punishment and torment. Matthew 25:41-46; Revelation 20:11-15
  • The Personality of Satan

    We believe that Satan is a person, the author of sin and the cause of the fall of man; that he is the open and declared enemy of God and man; and, that he shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire. Job 1:6-7; Matthew 4:2-11; Revelation 20:10

    Missions- Outreach

    We believe that God has given the Church the Great Commission to proclaim the Gospel to all nations so that there might be a great multitude from every nation, tribe, ethnic group, and language group who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Matthew 28:19-20
