  • Doctrinal Statement

    God:

    We believe that God is eternal, holy, just, merciful, kind, longsuffering, omnipresent, omnipotent & omniscient. We believe that God is the moral law giver and his law is written on our hearts. We believe that He was not created. We believe that God created the heavens and the earth. We believe that God created mankind and animals for his pleasure. We believe that God's relationship with mankind was broken becasue of sin. We believe that God loves mankind so much that he was willing to sacrifice his only begotten Son Jesus to pay the price for our sin. We believe that one day God will judge the quick and the dead. We believe that God the Father is a part of the Godhead three in one. (Genesis 1:1; Deutoeronomy 6:4; John 3:16; 1 Peter 1:4 Revelation4:11)


    Jesus:

    We believe that Jesus is the Son of God. We believe that Jesus came down to this earth and was born of a virgin. We believe that He was perfect, without sin the spotless Lamb of God. We belive that Jesus walked this earth. We believe that He was both God and man.We believe that He was wounded for our inqituies beaten for our transgressions. He belive that He hung on the cross and before He died said,"it is finished."We believe that Jesus died to atone for the sins of the world. We believe that He was dead in a tomb for three days and on that third day He rose victorious, defeating the grave, death and sin. We believe that Jesus after his ressurection from the dead showed himself alive and was seen of witnesses. We believe that Jesus asscended to Heaven and is at the right hand of God and one day he will return again for his bride. We believe that Jesus Christ is a part of the triune Godhead, three in one. (Hebrews1:6; John 1:29; Isaiah 53:5; John 11:25; Philippians 2:6-8)


    Holy Spirit: 

    We believe the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin. We believe that at the day of pentecost the Holy Spirit began to permantly indwell believers.We believe at the moment of trust and faith in Jesus the Holy Spirit seals the believers unto the day of Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit can be grieved. We believe that the Holy Spirit used tounges at a different dispensation in time and is not using that vehicle in modern day churches. We believe that once your are sealed with the Spirit there is nothing you can do to lose that. We belive that the Holy Spirit points believers to Christ and leads us and guides us into truth. (John 16:13; Acts 2:1; Ephesians 1:13)


    Salvation:

    We believe that by Adam sin entered into the world. As a result of Adam's sin we are all born with an inherited sin nature. We believe that our sins separates us from God. We believe that the payment for our sins is eternal seperation from God in Hell. We believe that even though we are sinners and have done wrong that God still loves us in so much that He sent Jesus to come and die for our sin. We believe that salvation is not in anything that we have done or ever can do but it is in the finished work of Jesus Christ. We believe if that gift is accpeted then we can enter into a relationship with God the Father and have an eternal home in Heaven but for anyone that rejects the gift they will be condemned to a lake of fire. ( Romans 10:9-10,13; Romans 5:12; Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23)


    Scripture:

    We believe that all scripture is inspired & inerrant & preserved throughout the test of time. We believe the Bible to be our final authority pertaining to faith and practice, we believe this from the beginning to the end of the Bible. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21; 1 Peter 1:23)


    Creation:

    We believe that God spoke life into existance and breathed into man the breath of life. Through Genesis Chapter 1 & 2 we believe that God's creation took place in literal days such as we have now. (Genesis 1-2)


    Eternal security: 

    We believe that salvation is not based on anything that we do but rather who we place our faith into. We believe that once your saved your always saved. We believe that you cannot lose your salvation. We believe that it is settled in Heaven forever. ( John 6:47; John 1:12; 2 Timothy 2:13)


    Second coming:

    We believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ. We believe He will physically apear in the clouds to catch His bride away. We believe Christ will return to earth where He will rule and reign for a literal 1,000 years. ( 1 Thessalonians 4:16; 1 Corinthians 15:53-54)
