Doctrine Statement:

 

These are the set of beliefs that we hold to and teach

 

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired, inerrant and preserved by God. It is the sole divinely authoritative standard for every age and every life.
 

We believe that the Godhead exists eternally in three persons as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and that these three are one God. We believe in God as the absolute and sole creator of the universe, and that creation was by divine will, not through evolutionary process.

We believe that God, by His sovereign choice and love for man, sent Christ into the world to save sinners. We believe that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man, that He was born of a virgin, that He was crucified as the penalty for our sins, and that He was bodily raised from the dead on the third day. Later, He ascended to the Father’s right hand where He is head of the church interceding for believers, and following the rapture of the saints, is coming again personally, bodily, visibly to this earth to set up His millennial kingdom.

We believe that by His death and His shed blood, the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for sin, redeeming us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. We believe that men are justified by faith in the simple and single finished work of Christ on the cross. We believe that such salvation with its forgiveness of sins, its impartation of a new nature, and its hope of eternal life, is entirely apart from good works, baptism, or church membership, and is of pure grace through faith. We believe that a true believer is eternally secure and that he cannot lose his salvation. Sin may interrupt the joy of his fellowship with God and bring the loving discipline of His Heavenly Father.

We believe that all who receive Christ become joint-heirs with Him, and at death their spirits depart to be with Christ in conscious blessedness. At the rapture their bodies will be raised to the likeness of His glorified body and dwell forever in His divine presence. We believe that it is the goal of every Christian to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God and the indwelling of the Spirit. We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person, is God and possesses all the divine attributes. He indwells, baptizes, and seals all believers at the moment of their salvation, and He fills them in response to confession of sin and yieldedness.
