What We Believe


Articles of Faith and Teachings
We believe that the Bible in the original tongue is the inspired Word of God, and that it is the only infallible rule of faith and practice. (II Timothy 3:14-16)
We believe that God is Triune: that there are three eternal, co-equal, divine persons in the Godhead, and these three are one God. (Matthew 28:19)
We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, that He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin. (John and Matthew 1)
We believe that the only way to be saved is by faith in the blood sacrifice, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and those who thus become His sheep, He says, “I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” (John 10:28, Ephesians 2:8-9)
We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father: that He ever liveth to make intercession for all that come to God by Him. (Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 4:14: Ephesians 1:20-21)
We believe that the Gospel Commission is for the Church; that the Lord’s Supper and Baptism are divine institutions and that Christ desires us to practice them in this age. (Matthew 28:18-20; I Corinthians 11:23-29)
We believe that Christ may at any moment return in the air to rapture the Saints, after which He will come to the earth with His Saints, and rule for a thousand years, after this the wicked will be judged and cast into a lake of fire. (I Thessalonians 4:13; I Corinthians 15:51-57; Daniel 9:27; Matthew 24:15-21, 24-27, 25:45; Revelation 19:11; 20:10)
We believe Satan is a person, the author of the fall, and that he shall be eternally punished. (Job 1-7; Genesis 3:1-19; Revelation 20:10)
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust; and in the eternal punishment of the lost and the eternal joy of the saved. (Revelation 20:11-15; 22:11-14; I Corinthians 15:1-58)
We believe the Church is two or more baptized believers covenanted together to do the will of God. That baptism is immersion of water as taught in the Bible and example of the disciples of our Lord.
We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning and that is marriage sanctioned by God which joins one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. (Genesis 2:24; Leviticus 18:22, 20:13; Romans 1:26-28)
