God: We believe in one God, omnipotent (all powerful), omniscient (all knowing), omnipresent (everywhere present), eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption (Psalms 139:7-10; Isaiah 46:9; Romans 11:33; I John 5:7; Revelation 19:6).
Scripture: We believe that the Holy Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, is the plenary, verbally inspired WORD OF GOD, is infallible, inerrant in the original writings, and is to be upheld as the supreme and final authority in faith and life (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:19-21). Our Pastor teaches from the English Standard Version, but many members use various other translations.
Jesus Christ: We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is absolutely deity, the eternal Son of God. He became a man without ceasing to be God, having been supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man (Matthew 1:20, 23; Luke 1:34-35; John 1:1-2, 14; I John 5:20).
Salvation: We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace (unmerited favor) and that it is in no way based upon the merits of man (Ephesians 2:8-9). All men are sinners, deserving God’s wrath, and the only way to escape that wrath is to accept, by faith the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. Jesus Christ died on the cross of Calvary as our substitute, taking upon Himself all of our sins, and experiencing the wrath of God which we deserve (Isaiah 53:6; I Peter 2:24; Romans 4:25; II Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 3:13). He was the Just dying for the unjust, doing for us what we could not do for ourselves, paying the complete price for sin. Three days after His death He rose bodily from the grave as proof that He completely satisfied God’s just demands for our sins. He rose victoriously and later ascended into Heaven to sit on the right hand of God the Father, there to intercede for all those who will believe on Him (Matthew 28:1-10; Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 4:14-16; 8:1; 10:12-14).
In order to be saved, a person must believe that Jesus died and rose again for his sins, and call upon Him to save him (John 1:11-12; 3:16; Romans 10:9-13). Salvation is based on what Jesus did for us, not what we can do for Him. The Bible teaches that when a person believes on Jesus he is born again by the Spirit of God, and made a new creation in Christ Jesus, receiving eternal life as a free gift (John 3:1-18; II Corinthians 5:17).
Repentance: Repentance is an evangelical grace wherin a person being by the Holy Spirit made aware of the evil of his sin, humbles himself before God with the intent and purpose of seeking forgiveness and following His teachings.
The Church: We believe that the local Church is a congregation of born again, immersed believers (Acts 2:41-42), associated by covenant of faith and fellowship of the Gospel, observing the ordinances of Christ; governed by His laws; and exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word (I Corinthians 11:2); that its officers are pastors and deacons (Acts 20:28; Ephesians 4:11); whose qualifications, claims and duties are clearly defined in the Scriptures (II Timothy 3:2-15).
Judgement: God has appointed a day wherein He will judge the World by Jesus Christ: Those whose names are not found in the lambs book of life will be consigned to everlasting punishment and the righteous will be with the Lord forever. (Revelation 20:11-15)
