Doctrinal Statement


The Holy Bible

We believe the Bible, consisting of the Old & New Testaments, with its sixty-six canonical books is the verbally inspired Word of God. We additionally believe that God, by His singular care and providence, has preserved His Holy Scriptures, and that the Holy Bible is, therefore, the only sufficient, final and supreme rule of authority of faith and practice. (2 Tim. 3:16-17; Ps. 12:6-7, 119:89, 105, 152, 160; 2 Pet. 1:20-21; Matt. 5:18; John 16:12-13; Tit. 1:2; Rev. 22:18-19)

The Godhead

We believe in One Triune God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; that they are equal in essence and attributes, yet distinct in office and activity. (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14).

The Deity of Christ

We Believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; that He is the Eternal Son of God, that He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless and perfect life, died on Calvary’s Cross, was buried and rose again the third day, was seen of many, ascended into heaven and that He ever lives to make intercession for all that come to God by Him. (John 1:1, 14; Matt. 1:16-23; Isa. 7:14; Phil. 2:6-8; 1 Cor. 15:1-4; 2 Cor.5:21; Acts 1:9-11; Heb. 7:25).

The Holy Spirt

We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit; that He is a person and not a force, that He regenerates, baptizes, seals, indwells, fills, teaches, guides, convicts, comforts, intercedes and sanctifies the believer.
(John 4:24; Ps. 139:7; John 14:16-17; Acts 5:3-4; 1 Cor. 12:13; Tit. 3:5; Eph. 1:13, 4:30, 5:18).

The Sign Gifts

We believe the nine sign gifts of the Spirit in 1 Cor. 12:8-10 to be miraculous gifts, sovereignly bestowed by the Holy Spirit for a limited time. These gifts were for the infant church of the first century and are not for the church today (1 Corinthians 13:9-13; Hebrews 2:3-4; 2 Peter 2:1; Ephesians 2:20).


We Believe that God created the heavens and the earth in six literal days and that man was created on the sixth day. We believe that life is sacred and that it begins at conception. (Genesis 1; Exodus 20:8-11; John 1:1-3; Hebrews 11:3; Ps. 139:13-16; Jer. 1:5; Luke 1:41).


We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that sin and death came through Adam and spread to all men because all sinned. Mankind inherited a sinful nature and became alienated from God, worthy of His just condemnation. Therefore, mankind is totally depraved and of himself, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition. (Gen. 1:26-27; Rom. 3:23; 5:12; Eph. 2:1-3)


We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. The believer’s good works are not the grounds but the result of salvation in Christ Jesus. We also believe in the eternal security of the believer. (Eph. 1:7; 2:8-10; John 1:12-13; 1 Pet. 1:18-19; John 10:28; Rom. 8:1, 38-39).

The Church

We believe the church, which is the Body of Christ, began with the descent of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost, and that those who receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior are members of the Body of Christ and are indwelt by the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Great Commission is for the Church; that the Lord’s Supper as a memorial and Baptism by Immersion are the ordinances of the church, and that Christ has commanded us to practice them in this age. (Acts 2; 1 Cor. 12:12-18; 1 Cor. 6:19-20; Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 8:35-38; 1 Cor. 11:23-29).


We believe that Satan is a person, the author of the fall, and that he has been defeated on the cross, and shall be eternally punished.
(Job 1:6 – 2:7; Gen.3:1-6; Heb.2:14; Rev.20:10).

End Times

We believe that Christ may at any moment return in the air to rapture the saints and that a tribulation period of seven years will follow, 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 the lake of fire. We affirm our belief in a pre-tribulational rapture of the church and the pre-millennial return of Christ in glory. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust; and in the eternal conscious punishment of the lost, and the eternal joy of the saved. (1 Cor. 15:51-57; 1 Thess.4:13-18; Dan. 9:27; Matt. 24:15-21, 25:46; Rev.19:11, 20:10-15, 22:12-14).
