Doctrinal Statement

 

The Bible

We believe the Bible is inspired and inerrant in every word and thought by God and therefore, is the perfect Word of God without error (2 Tim. 3:16-17). We believe all scripture is the product of men writing as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit and is therefore totally accurate and God inspired (2 Pet. 1:19-21). We believe God’s word was not the product of man’s idea but came about as the result of God using man to write the very words He desired (2 Pet. 1:19-21). We believe the Bible is God's complete revelation to mankind and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Tim. 3:16). We see that Christ and the Apostles referred to virtually every book of the Old Testament in their writings and sayings as the very word of God so we believe the same. We believe God is so powerful that to preserve His word is no great task for Him to accomplish. God said through the prophet Isaiah, “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever (Isaiah 40:8).  Christ said,"It is written, "'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4).  

 

The Nature of God

We believe that God is the Creator of all that exist and is worthy of complete adoration by His creation (Gen.1-2). He gives life to every living creature and sustains them as well. He holds all things together and is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, transcendent, immanent, eternal and all-powerful (Col. 1). All things exist by Him and for Him. We believe in one living God who exists as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Each of the Deity is fully God and totally united in essence and purpose.

 

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God (Jn. 1:1) and through the virgin birth became fully man as well. Jesus lived a perfect life without sin and gave His life as the complete and perfect payment for our sins. Christ rose from the dead the third day and now is our High Priest forever. Through His work on the cross, we are forgiven for our sins and made totally righteous in Him. Through Christ's work on the cross, we receive the gift of the forgiveness of sins, the Holy Spirit, and eternal life (Rom. 3:23, Rom. 6:23, Jn. 3:16, Rom. 5:8, Rom. 10:9,10).

 

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is also fully God and is the agent of the new birth. He convicts men and the world of sin and calls them to repentance. He lives within the believer to guide and empower them to please God, give power for living the Christian life and fulfill His plan for their lives (Gal. 5:16-26).

 

Satan

We believe Satan is a real adversary of the believer and must be battled with spiritual weapons (Eph. 6). He is a fallen angel and roams about seeking to destroy. He will ultimately be thrown into the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:10).

 

Mankind

We believe mankind was created in the image of God, but that through the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, is now born with a sinful self-will and nature (Gen. 3, Rom 1-3). Mankind is completely unable to become righteous on his own and is spiritually dead until God enters their life and they are reborn. Mankind is totally depraved and falls short of the glory of God Rom. 3:23). The wages of sin is death and unless man is born again he remains dead in his sins and without hope of eternal life (Jn. 3:3, Rev.20:15).

 

Salvation

We believe that as a result of the fall of Adam and Eve, mankind is totally depraved, dead in their sins, and without hope of eternal life with God in heaven. If not born again during their lifetime, they will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire separated from God (Rom. 3:23, Rev. 20:11-15). As a result of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, each person's sins are forgiven and paid for upon receiving the free gift of salvation in Christ alone (Jn 3:16). Salvation is by faith in Christ alone, and not by works of righteousness by man by which salvation can be earned (Eph. 2:8,9). It is given by the grace of God and is available to all who believe (Jn. 3:16).  Genuine salvation must involve repentance from sin and a realization that only Christ’s sacrifice on the cross can pay for one’s sins and make them right with God. The gift of salvation is found only in believing and receiving Christ and there is no other name under heaven by which we can be saved (Acts 4:12).
