DOCTRINAL STATEMENT

We believe that the Bible is the plenary, verbally inspired Word of God. It is our final authority for faith and practice.(II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:21-23).

We believe in God, the supreme, eternal being, the source and beginning of all things, absolute in His attributes existing in the Trinity (Genesis 1:1-2, Psalm 53:1).

We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit. We believe that He executes the divine plan for our salvation. He indwells the believers and empowers them for service (John 16:7-13, Acts 5:3-4)

We believe in the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, His deity, His sinless life and vicarious death. We believe in His bodily resurrection and ascension and His personal, premillennial return (Romans 5:9, Philippians 2:5-1, I Thessalonians 4:13-18, John 14:1-31).

We believe that man was created by God in His image and by his own personal choice fell into sin and death. Hence, every person is sinful and under condemnation (Genesis 1:26-27, Romans 3:10, 23).

We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone. (John 3:16, Acts 16:30-31).

We believe that those who have received the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior are eternally saved. The security of the believer rests upon the finished work of Christ on the cross of Calvary (I John 5:11-13, John 10:28).

We believe that the New Testament church is a congregation of baptized believers practicing New Testament principles, holding forth its doctrines, observing its ordinances, which are baptism and the Lord's Supper, exercising its autonomy, and proclaiming Christ's Gospel (Matthew 16:16-18).

We believe in the eternal blessedness of the saved in heaven and the eternal punishment of the lost in hell (Revelation 21:4, Luke 16:19-31).

We believe in personal and ecclesiastical separation. (II Corinthians 6:14-17, II Thessalonians 3:6).
