What we Believe

The Holy Scriptures.

We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and the New Testaments to be the verbally inspired Word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible and God-breathed.  (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Matthew 5:18; John 16:12-13)


The Godhead

We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections. (Deuteronomy 6:4; 

2 Corinthians 13:14)

The Person and Work of Christ

(1)  We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the Eternal Son of God, became 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 man.    (John 1:1-2, 14; Luke 1:35)

(2)  We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and, that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead. (Romans 3:24-25; I Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; I Peter 1:3-5)

(3)  We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to heaven, and now is exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor and Advocate. (Acts 1:9; Hebrews 9:4; Romans 8:34; I John 2:1,-2)

The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit

(1)  We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgement; 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; 2 Corinthians 3:6; 12:12-14; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:13-14)

(2)  We believe that He is the Divine Teacher who guides believers into all truth; and, that it is the privilege and duty of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit.  (John 16:13; I John 2:20, 27; Eph. 5:18)

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 race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and, that man is totally depraved, and, of himself, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition.  (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22-23; Eph. 2:1-3:12.)



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

The Eternal Security of the Believer

We believe that every saved person possesses two natures, with provision made for the victory of the new nature over the old nature through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit; and, that all claims to the eradiction of the old nature in this life are unscriptural. (Romans 6:13; 8:12-13; Galatians 5:16-25; Ephesians 4:22-24; Colossians 3:10; I Peter 1:14-16; I John 3:5-9.)


We believe that all the saved should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord; and, that separation from all religious apostacy, all worldly and sinful pleasures, practices and associations is commanded by God.  (2 Timothy 3:1-5; Romans 12:1-2; 14:13; I John 2:15-17; 2 John 9, 11; 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1.)



We believe that it is the obligation of the saved to witness by life and by word to the truths of  Holy Scripture and to seek to proclaim the Gospel to all mankind.   (Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 5:19-20.)

The Ministry and Spiritual Gifts

(1) We believe that God is sovereign in the bestowment of all His gifts; and, that the gifts of evangelists, pastors and techers are sufficient for the perfecting o f the saints today; and, that speaking in tongues and the working of sign miracles gradually ceased as the New Testament Scriptures were completed and their authority became established. (I Corinthians 12:4-11; 2 Corinthians 12:12; Ephesians 4: 12)

(2)  We believe that God does hear and answer the prayer of faith in accord with His own will, for  the sick and afflicted.  (John 15:7; I John 5:14-15)

The Church

(1)  We believe that the Church, which is the body and the espoused bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of all born-again persons of the present age.  (Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:25-27; I Corinthans 12:12-14; 2 Corinthians 11:2)

(2)  We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures.  (Acts 14:27; 20:17; 28:28-31; I Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-11)


We believe that the Scriptures interpreted in their natural literal sense, reveal divinely determined dispensations or rules of life which defines man’s responsibilities in successive ages.  However, we reject the teaching known as “Hyper-Dispensationalism”, which is opposed to believers receiving the Lord’s Supper or water baptism.  We recognize the ordinances of water baptism and the Lord’s Supper as a scriptural means of testimony for the church in this age. 

(I Corinthians 11:23-26)

The Personality of Satan

We believe that Satan is a person, the author of sin and the cause of the fall; that he is the enemy of God and man; and he shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire.  (Job 1:6-7; Isaiah 14:12-17; 25:41; Revelation 20:10)


The Second Coming of Christ

We believe in that “Blessed Hope”, the personal, imminent, pre-tribulation and pre-millennial coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for His redeemed ones; and in His subsequent return to earth, with His saints, to establish His Milennial Kingdom. 

(I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Zechariah 14:4-11; Revelation 19:11-16; 20:1-6; 3:10; I Thessalonians 1:10; 5:9.)

The Eternal State

(1) We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and te unsaved to judgment and everlating punishment. (Matthew 25:46; John 5:28-29; 11:25-26; Revelation 20:5-6; 12-13.)

(2) 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 the spirit, could and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord.  (Luke 23:43; Revelation 20:4-6; 2 Colossians 5:8; Philippians 1:23; I Thessalonians 4:16-17)

(3) We believe that the souls of unbelievers remain, after death, in conscious misery 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 due to their refusal of the Son of God as their Savior.  (Luke 16:19-26; Matthew 25:41-46; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9; Jude 6-7; Mark, 9:43-48; Revelation 20:11-15)
