What We Believe

We believe in the Bible as the Inspired Word of God.  The Scriptures, both of the Old and New Testaments, as God’s revelation of Himself to man.

We believe in the person of God as being a triune yet unified being in whom there is no dissension or shadow of changing.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in: His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious death for our sin, His blood shed for our atoning, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His future personal return in power and glory.

We believe in the creation of man by the direct act of God.  In the image and likeness of the creator was the creature made.  Out of the dust of the earth man was created and into him God breathed his own breath, the substance of His Spirit, and thus imparted to him the breath of life.

We believe in the total depravity of man through the fall of Adam.  In that fallen state man is not defined by the sin that he may commit, but by the very nature of sin which reigns in his mortal body.  Mortal sinful man is incapable of pleasing or even entering into the presence of Righteous God, forever distanced by an inseparable gulf; apart from salvation.

We believe that a new birth is necessary for every man; being born of the spirit with a renewing of the mind.  Salvation is only obtainable through the sovereign grace of God by the appropriation of the believer’s faith in the shed blood and Lordship of Jesus Christ.

We believe that holiness is to be God’s standard of living for His people.

We believe in the work of the Holy Spirit to convince men of sin and to draw them to the person of Jesus Christ.

We believe in the baptism as spoken of in the book of Acts and the believer’s empowerment as a result of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in his person and life.

We believe in water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that divine healing is provided for all in the atonement.

We believe that those who put their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ for their salvation have eternal life in heaven forever.  That those who reject Jesus Christ and the free offer of His love and salvation will be eternally separated from God in the lake of fire, where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth, which is called hell.

We believe in the evangelization of the world, that the supreme mission of the people of God is the Great Commission, to preach the gospel to every creature, freely giving as we have freely received.
