Doctrinal Statement

We Believe,

All scripture is inspired as originally written and therefore infallible and inerrant. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21; Matthew 5:18; 1 Corinthians 2:13)

There is one living and true God who exists in three Persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

The Faith is God (1 Corinthians 8:6)

The Son is God (Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1; Hebrews 1:8-10)

The Holy Spirit is God (Acts 5:3-4)

The Lord Jesus Christ was born of a virgin. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38)

Christ rose bodily from the dead and ascended unto God the Father. (Matthew 28; Mark 16; 1 Corinthians 15; Romans 1:4)

Christ will return, and can at any moment. We should live with this in mind. (Revelations 20:1-6; John 14:1-4; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 2 Peter 3:8-13)

All men inherit a depraved nature and are lost sinners in need of salvation. (Romans 3:9-19; Ephesians 2:1-3)

God has provided salvation through offering His Son on the cross of Calvary, and allowing His BLOOD to be shed to atone for our sins. (Romans 3:25; Hebrews 9:22)

We are saved and justified when we recognize ourselves as sinners, and put our trust in Christ as the Son of God His finished work on the cross of Calvary. Salvation is by grace through faith plus nothing. (Romans 3:24, 4:5; Ephesians 2:8-9)

Once saved, we cannot be lost; we are eternally secure in Christ. (John 3:16, 10:27-29; Philippians 1:6; Romans 8:38-39)

The baptism of the Holy Spirit takes place at the time of conversion and is the act of placing the believer into the body of Christ, but is not a second work of grace. (1 Corinthians 12:13; Galatians 3:27)
It is different than the filling of the Spirit which is an ongoing process that may occur at any time in the believer's life. (Ephesians 5:18)

We should regularly participate at the Lord's table. (1 Corinthians 11:23-32)
All believers should be baptized by immersion as an act of obedience, but not for securing their salvation. (Acts 2:41, 19:4-5; Matthew 18:19-20).

The Bible teaches the eternal blessedness of the saved. (John 4:14, 5:24; Ephesians 2:7).
It also teaches the eternal punishment of the lost. (John 5:28-29; Revelation 20:10; Matthew 25-46).

The grace of God teaches us to "live soberly, righteously, and godly." (Titus 2:11-13).

Titus 2:13 - "Looking for that blessed hope" of His returning for us.

Colossians 3:2-3; 1 John 2:15-17 - Setting our "affection on things above, not on things on the earth."

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 - Living a life of separation from the world.

We believe in the separation "unto God" (Romans 1:1, 16:17; 2 Corinthians 6:17-18; 2 Thessalonians 2:15, 3:6; 1 Timothy 6:3, 5).
