Doctrinal Statement

We believe that the Bible is the verbally inspired and infallible, authoritative Word of God and that God gave the words of Scripture by inspiration without error in the original autographs. We believe that God had promised to preserve His Word and that has kept that promise by preserving His infallible Word in the Hebrew Masoretic Text and the Greek Textus Receptus.

We believe there is one triune God, eternally existent in the persons of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; these three are one in essence, but distinct in person and function.

We believe that Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Trinity, became man without ceasing to be God. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood and His bodily resurrection.

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Trinity, the Agent of conviction, regeneration, indwelling, baptism, sanctification, and illumination of all who are born into God’s family through Jesus Christ.

We believe that God created the universe in six literal days and that man was created in the image of God but chose to sin. Hence, all persons inherit a depraved nature and are lost sinners in need of salvation.

We believe that salvation is a free gift of God available to every person; it is by grace, through faith, plus nothing. Salvation is received only by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished work.

We believe in the spiritual unity of the body of Christ and that God has ordained the local church for the perpetuation of His truth and work in the world, and that the two ordinances of the local church are baptism by immersion and a regular observance of the Lord’s Supper by believers.

We believe in the pre-Tribulation return of Jesus Christ for all believers. This Rapture of the saints will be followed by a seven-year period of Tribulation, after which Christ will return in glory to judge the world and set up His millennial reign on earth.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and lost: those that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life in heaven and those that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal damnation in a literal lake of fire.
