Doctrinal Statement

*The Scripture*
We believe that the Bible, consisting of the sixty-six (66) books of the Old and New Testaments, is verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit, is inerrant in the original manuscripts, and is the infallible and authoritative Word of God. (Matthew 4:4; 5:17-19; John 10:35; 2 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

*Godhead or Trinity*
We believe that there is one only living and true God. He eternally co-existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the same in essence, equal in power and glory. We believe that God, By His spoken Word and for His own glory, created the heavens and earth out of nothing. (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 45:21-22; Matthew 3:16-17; John 4:23, 24; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Ephesians 4:3-6)

*God the Father*
We believe that God the Father loves the world, gave Christ to be its Savior and is the Father of all who believe on Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. (John 3:16-17; Romans 8:15-17; Ephesians 2:4-8; Galatians 3:26; 4:6)

*God the Son*
We believe that God the Son became incarnate in the person of Jesus Christ, was conceived of the Holy Spirit; and was born of the virgin Mary. He is truly God and truly man, and lived a perfect, sinless life. All His teachings and utterances are true. (Luke 1:34-37; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15-19; Hebrews 7:26; 1 Timothy 3:16)

We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, shed His blood and died for the sins of the whole world, according to the Scriptures, as a substitutionary sacrifice. (John 3:16; 1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9; 2 Peter 2:1; 1 John 2:2)

We believe that the crucified body of Christ was raised from the dead, according to the Scriptures; He ascended into heaven and He sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate. (1 Corinthians 15:4; Hebrews 2:17-18; 7:24-25; 10:12)

*God the Holy Spirit*
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person. He is the divine author of the Scriptures. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. He is the divine agent of regeneration. He indwells all believers and He baptizes all believers into the body of Christ at the time of their conversion. The Holy Spirit enables the believer to understand the Scriptures. He empowers believers for godly living, and He equips them for witness and service. (John 16:7-11; Acts 1:8; Romans 8:4-16; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13; 6:19; 12:4-7; 12:13; Ephesians 1:13-14; Titus 3:5; 2 Peter 1:21)

*Humanity*
We believe that the human race was created in the image of God. Adam sinned and, thereby, incurred spiritual death, which is separation from God, as well as physical death. Consequently, all people are born with a sinful nature, which is enmity toward God. All people are totally depraved, sinful in thought, word and deed, and absolutely in need of salvation. (Genesis 1:26-27; 3:19; Romans 3:23; 5:12; James 3:9)

*Satan*
We believe in the existence of a personal Satan and evil angelic powers and that they all have been judged by God in the death and resurrection of Christ. (Matthew 25:41; Luke 4:1-13; John 16:11; Revelation 12:9; 20:10)

*Salvation*
We believe that salvation is only by grace, through faith. All who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior are born again by the Holy Spirit. There is no other way by which a person may be saved. All who are truly born again have been given eternal life and shall never perish. (John 3:16; 10:28; Acts 4:12; Romans 5:8-9; 8:28-39; Ephesians 2:8-9; 4:30)

*The Church and Ordinances*
We believe that the church is the body of Jesus Christ and is a divinely established instrument for the worship of God, the growth of believers and evangelism of the lost. It is the responsibility of the members of the church to participate in making disciples of Jesus Christ from every people group and to live out their faith with justice and mercy. There are two ordinances, baptism and the Lord’s Supper, which are divinely enjoined upon all believers. They are without saving merit in themselves, but they provide an expression of faith regarding the believer’s identification and fellowship with Christ. (Matthew 16:18; 28:18-20; Romans 15:20-21; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26; 2 Corinthians 8:10, 13-15; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:8-9; 2:19-22; 3:10, 21; James 1:27)

*The Return of Christ*
We believe that Jesus Christ will return personally and bodily to rapture the church. The second coming of Christ will be premillennial to establish His kingdom upon the earth and to reign in righteousness, justice, and peace. (1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Titus 2:13; Revelation 20:1-10)

*Resurrection*
We believe that both believers and unbelievers will be raised from the dead bodily. The redeemed in Christ will enjoy eternal blessedness. Those who have not accepted the offer of salvation will suffer eternal, conscious punishment. (Daniel 12:2; Mark 9:47-48; John 5:28-29; 1 Corinthians 15:51-58; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9; Revelation 20:11-15; 21:3-4)

*Christian Life*
We believe that the Christian life is to be lived by faith, trusting the Lord to meet all of our needs. All who are saved are new creatures in Christ, with provision made for victory over the flesh by the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit. We are called to be holy and to discipline ourselves for the purpose of godliness. (Matthew 6:31-34; Romans 6-8; Ephesians 6:10-20; 1 Peter 1:13-15; 5:8-11; 2 Peter 3:11-14; 2 Timothy 2:3-6; Titus 2:11-12; Hebrews 12:14)
