What We Believe

 

  • The Bible is the only inspired, infallible, and authoritive Word of God (John 16:13; 2Timothy 3:15-17; 2Peter 1:21; 1Thessalonians 2:13)
  • There is one God, eternal existent in three persons: Father, Son & Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 28:18; Luke 3:22; John 14:16)
  • In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:1,14; 20:28-29; Philippians 2:6-11; Isaiah 9:6; Colossians 2:9)
  • In His virgin birth (Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:34-35; Isaiah 7:14)
  • In His sinless life (2Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15, 7:26-27; 1John 3:5; 1Peter 2:22)
  • In His miracles (Matthew 4:23; Luke 6:17-19; John 3:2)
  • In His vicarious, and atoning death through His shed blood (Colossians 1:14,20; Romans 5:8-9; Ephesians 1:7)
  • In His bodily ressurection (1Corinthians 15:3-4; Luke 25:4-7, 36-48; Revelation 1:17-18)
  • In His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Acts 2:23, 5:30-31; 1Peter 3:22)
  • In His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Philippians 2:9-11; Thessalonians 1:10, 4:13-18; John 14:1-3)
  • That justification by faith in the atonement of Jesus Christ, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are absolutely essential for the salvation of the lost, and sinful man (Romans 3:24-25; John 3:3-7; 1John 5:11-13; Ephesians 2:1-16; Revelation 5:9; Acts 4:12; 1Corinthians 6:11)
  • The prime agency for the work of God's Kingdom is the Christian local church body functioning under the Sovereignty of our Lord Jesus Christ. To the church have been entrusted the ordinances of believer's baptism, and the Lord's Supper (Acts 2:41-47, 16:4-5; Matthew 16:18, 28:18-20; Ephesians 1:22-23; 1Corinthians 11:23-26; 1Corinthians 12)
  • In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit which includes: the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as an experience distant from regeneration; His indwelling, by which the believer is enabled to live a godly life; His supernatural gifting, and empowerment of the church for its work, life, and worship (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8, 2:1-4, 10:44-46; 1Corinthians 12 & 14)
  • In a lifestyle, and practice of ethical conduct, and integrity consistent with the character of Jesus Christ, and Biblical standards (Romans 12:1-2; 1Corinthians 6:9-10; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 4:13-32; 1Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-11, 2:11-13, 3:9-11; 1Peter 1:13-16)
  • In the return of Jesus Christ, to consummate His Kingdom, in the resurrection of both the saved, and the lost; those who're saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (eternal separation from God) (John 5:28-29; Mark 14:62; 2Thessalonians 1:2-10; Revelation 1:5-7, 20:4-5,11-12)
  • In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (John 17:11, 21-23; Romans 12:4-5; Ephesians 4:11-16)
