Our Doctrine—What We Believe & Teach

Bible: We believe that the Bible (Old and New Testament) is the inspired  Word  of God and wholly without error.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2  Peter 1:20-21)

God: We believe that there is one true God who has revealed Himself in the Trinity. He has revealed Himself through the Scriptures as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is one God with three distinct persons equal in perfection and eternality, and all three are one God. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 8:6)

Jesus Christ: We believe that Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the second person of the Trinity. He is the eternal Word and only begotten Son. He is eternally God but became a man by the miracle of the virgin birth. He thus became “Emmanuel” (God with us), the perfect God-Man. He is fully God and fully man. He died on the cross of Calvary to pay for the sins of the world and rose again three days later to give true life to all who would put their complete trust in Him for reconciliation to the Father. (Colossians 1:15; Philippians 2:5-8; Hebrews 4:14-16; Revelation 11:15-17; 20:4-6, 11-15)

Holy Spirit: We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity; that He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment; and that He gives believers spiritual gifts to be exercised by the believers to edify and exhort the body of Christ, which is the church. (1 Corinthians 2:10-11; Hebrews 3:7-9)

Man: We believe in the distinctiveness of man to rule over the entire God-created earth. God created man alone in His image on the sixth literal day of creation. All men have sinned by nature and by choice, are sinful and lost, and are without hope in and of themselves of eternal life. (Genesis 1:26-28; Romans 3:10)

Salvation: We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in the finished work of Christ on the cross of Calvary. Salvation is a free gift from God, neither merited nor secured by virtue or work of mankind, and it can only be secured through personal faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8-9)

Church: We believe that the Church is an elect body of believers baptized by the Holy Spirit at the moment of salvation. The Church’s mission is to teach believers God’s instructions for living and to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to all people. The Church’s ordinances are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. (Ephesians 4:10-12; Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29, 12:13)

Second Coming: We believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and that His coming, which is our blessed hope, is always imminent. (2 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 21)
