Doctrinal Statement

 

What We Believe…

 

About Salvation

  • Man’s Problem:  Sin… Man chose to sin against a Holy God, and no amount of good works will make a person acceptable in God’s sight – Romans 3:23.
  • Sin’s Penalty:  Death… Separation from God for eternity is the wage we deserve for our choice to sin – Romans 6:23.
  • Christ’s Payment:  Substitutionary Death… Christ was our sinless substitute who died on the cross to pay for our sins – Romans 5:8.
  • Our Pardon:  Repentance… Turning away from sin and trusting Christ ALONE for salvation brings us into a right relationship with God – Acts 16:31.
  • God’s Promise:  Eternal Life… When we hear God’s Word and believe on Christ we are promised eternal life, not because we deserve the gift but because of God’s promise to us – John 6:47.

About God’s Word

We believe the Bible – both Old & New Testaments are verbally inspired by God and without error in the original writings. Its preservation was promised by God’s power, and it is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

About God The Father

We believe in God the Father, perfect in holiness, boundless in love, infinite in wisdom, and measureless in power.

About God The Son

We believe that Jesus is the eternal and only Son of God, born of the virgin Mary, sinless in His life, died and resurrected to life by God’s power, true God and true man.

About God the Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, of the righteousness of Christ, and of God’s judgment to come. He regenerates, indwells, sanctifies, and comforts believers with a primary work of glorifying God the Father and pointing people to Christ.

About Baptism

We believe baptism was commanded by God as a very important step of open obedience after salvation. The scriptural mode is by immersion, symbolizing Christ’s death, burial and resurrection. It has no power to save or cleanse from sinfulness.

About the Local Church

We believe that a local New Testament church should consist of born again, baptized believers that come together for the purpose of worship, preaching, evangelism, discipleship, encouragement and fellowship.

About Biblical Separation

We believe that Christians are called to a life of separation from all that is contrary to God’s Word.  Christians should manifest in their lives a commitment to holiness, having excellent testimonies for Christ’s sake, and focused on unity with other believers unless unbelief, error or apostasy exists.

About Satan and Hell

We believe Satan is literally and personally the agent of man’s fall from innocence, the god of this world, the prince and power of the air and that he and his angels will be punished eternally in hell.
