Doctrinal Statement

Bible

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God as a revelation of Himself to man and as a guidebook for faith and practice of the Christian life and preserved for the English speaking people in the Authorized King James Version.

God

We believe God is three persons eternally existing and acting simultaneously under one Godhead God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit making up what is known as the Trinity.

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus is the virgin born Son of God, without ceasing to be God, that was sent to live a sinless life and shed His blood on the cross of Calvary in order to offer eternal salvation to all who would receive it and then arose bodily from the grave three days later.

Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit was sent to man when the Son left the earth to aide as our comforter and conscience; He indwells every believer at the moment of salvation and convicts, instructs, guides, and seals the believer.

Satan

We believe Satan is a real being, the fallen angel Lucifer, who has become the prince of the world and darkness, who is the adversary of God and man, and who will ultimately be cast into the lake of fire along with his followers.

Man

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God but fell from fellowship with God because of Adam’s sin, placing upon all mankind a sinful nature and totally depraved state, unable to remedy our lost condition on our own.

Salvation

We believe salvation is the free gift offered through Jesus’ shed blood on the cross to all and any that will receive it, void of any works of man, and eternally secure at the moment of repentance and acceptance.

Local Church

We believe the local New Testament church is a local assembly of baptized, born-again believers that has a pastor and deacons, observes the two ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and who have joined themselves together to carry out the Great Commission and encourage and exhort one another.

Separation

We believe in separation as a disconnect, disunion, and/or disassociation from the sinful lifestyles and mindset that characterize this world (moral separation) and from false teachings and doctrinal compromise (ecclesiastical separation).

Return of Christ

We believe in a pretribulational and premillennial literal return of Christ in which all believers (dead and alive) will be caught up to be with the Lord prior to the seven-year tribulation and will return with Him to establish His thousand-year reign on the earth.
