What We Believe

“We Believe”

1. The Scriptures
We believe the whole of the book called the Bible (the 66 combined books of the Old and New
Testament) to be God’s inerrant and infallible revelation to man.

2. The Trinity
We believe that the Godhead exists eternally in three persons, The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit.

3. God
We believe that God is the creator and sustainer of all things. God, by His power, instantaneously
created the heavens and the earth without preexistent material. This creation took place in six literal, 24-hour
days. (Genesis 1)

4. Christ
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is co-eternal in being from eternity past (John 1:1, 14, 17:5; Hebrews
13:8). We believe that Jesus Christ was miraculously conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit in the womb of
the virgin Mary. We believe that Jesus Christ will return to the earth in two distinct phases: the rapture of the
saints and the revelation of Christ.

5. The Holy Spirit
We believe in the filling of the Spirit in the believer. The filling is not a second work of grace, a
completion of salvation or a second blessing. It is the believer being controlled by the Spirit through continual,
dedicated, and dependent life producing a Christ likeness in character. (Galatians 5:16, 22-25; Ephesians 5:18)
We believe the apostolic sign gifts, such as speaking in tongues and the working of miracles, gradually ceased
as the New Testament scriptures were completed and their authority established. (1 Corinthians12: 4-11,
14:22; 2 Corinthians 12:12; Ephesians 4:1-12; Hebrews 2:3-4)

6. Salvation
We believe that salvation is the gift of God and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Salvation is totally a work of God for man and therefore cannot be obtained from any sacraments, good
works, or human merit. (John 1:12; Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5, John 14:6)

7. The Church
We believe the church is the New Testament institution composed of all born again believers of this
present age. We believe the local New Testament church is autonomous, self-governing, self-supporting, and

8. The Eternal State
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men. The saved shall be raised to eternal life and the
unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment. (Matthew 25:46; John 5:28-29; Revelation 20:4-15)

9. Marriage
We believe that God created the institution of marriage to be between one man, and one woman, until
death do, they part. (Genesis 2:18-24; Matthew 19:3-6) Legitimate sexual relations are exercised solely within
marriage. Further, transgender activities and the creation, distribution and viewing of pornography are
behaviors that are incompatible with biblical instruction. (Matthew 5:27-30)

10. Human life
We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable
worth, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically and mentally challenged, and every other stage
from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life.(Psalm 139)
