The Word of God
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired word of God, without error and contradictions, because it is the work of a Holy God. In the Bible we find our doctrine, absolute truth, the supreme rule and final authority of our faith and life and the revelation of Christ as our Savior.
We believe in one true God. He exists eternally in one divine essence, yet in three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit; each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality. We believe God is infinite in all His attributes.
God the Father
We believe that God the Father created all things in six literal days, though His Son, Jesus Christ who is the Word of God. God the Father planned our salvation by putting all our sins in His Son, Jesus Christ. We believe that He hears and answers every prayer of every believer that comes to Him through Jesus Christ.
Jesus, God the Son
We believe that Jesus Christ is both true God and true man in the same person, at the same time. We believe that God the Father established trusting in His Son’s perfect life, suffering, death, and resurrection as the only way to eternal life in heaven. We believe in Christ plus nothing; not works, not church, but in Christ and Christ alone for salvation. We believe that we can offer God no good work to merit salvation, but simply receive the gift of His grace. We believe that Jesus Christ literally rose from death. And because He rose all people will rise; some to be with the Lord in Heaven forever and some to everlasting condemnation.
God the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is True God with the Father and the Son. At the moment of Faith, He takes up residence in every believer and seals them until the day of redemption. The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, gives us the desire to please God with our life, comforts us, gives us the peace of God, the joy of belonging to Him and the certain hope of eternal life.
God created man, male and female, in the image and likeness of God; to love, serve, and enjoy endless fellowship with Him. Tempted by Satan, man freely chose to disobey the will of God, bringing sin, death and condemnation to all mankind. As a result, man became incapable of choosing or doing what is acceptable to God apart from His grace through His Holy Spirit.
We believe in the certain hope of eternal life for everyone that has placed their faith in Jesus Christ. Should we stray from His will, God will discipline us as His children. However, we cannot lose our salvation because God is faithful according to His promise to give us eternal life.
We believe Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, His body, which is composed of the union of all believers, who are called out of the world and have been joined to Him through saving faith. A church’s members are to work together in love and unity, for the purpose of glorifying Christ.
We believe that Baptism is by immersion which signifies our death to sin and the rising of a new man in Christ. We believe that Biblical Baptism means understanding sin and grace and repenting. It is an outward sign of an inward change and signifies our identity with Christ.
We believe that Holy Communion (the Lord’s Supper) is an ordinance of our Lord Jesus Christ in which He calls us to remember His suffering and death and what it means for every believer. The Bread and the Cup are representations of the Body and Blood of Christ. Holy Communion establishes a unity among believers and should be received only by true-believers in Jesus Christ.
We believe in a literal rapture of the church, a literal anti-Christ, and a literal millennial (1,000 years) reign of Christ on Earth.
