  • Doctrinal Statement

    Jesus

    We believe that Jesus is the eternal Son of God, is fully divine, without sin, and the only Savior for mankind's sin problem. He is the perfect manifestation of God, the eternal Word, and all who come to Him, by faith alone shall be saved. (John 1:1, John 3:16, Romans 5:1-11, Luke 1:26-38, Acts 4:12, John 14:6, John 10:30)


    God

    We believe that God is one God and there is none other like Him, He alone is Holy, Righteous, and the Creator of all that is in existence. God is eternal, self-existent, unchanging, and without sin. (Genesis 1:1, Malachi 3:6, Deuteronomy 6:4, Psalm 5:4)


    Holy Spirit

    The Holy Spirit of God is the means by which men are born again, regenerated and made alive. He would, "reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment." He sanctifies, seals, fills and guides the church into all truth. (John 16:8, Acts 1:5, 1 Cor. 3:16, 1 Cor. 6:19-20, 12:13, Ephesians 5:18, John 3:5-6)


    Scripture

    We believe that the Bible is the inerrant, infallible Word of God and it is the priority of the church to preach, teach and study the scriptures for themselves on a daily basis for spiritual growth, conformity to Christ, and public gospel ministry. The Bible is our sole and final authority for faith and practice. (Isaiah 40:8, Matthew 4:4, 2 Timothy 3:15-16, 1 Peter 1:23-25, 2 Peter 1:18-21)


    Salvation

    We believe all men are by nature sinners and that only through the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ on the cross can a man be delivered from his sin. Salvation is not through works, religion, or even the best of human efforts but rather by grace through faith in Christ alone. (Acts 4:19; Acts 16:31; Romans 3:10-23; Romans 5:6-12; Romans 6:23; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Timothy 2:4 Titus 3:5-6; Revelation 20:11-14)


    Eternal Security

    We believe that salvation is an eternal promise made by God alone and therefore one cannot lose his/her salvation. Eternal life by definition is something perpetual and incapable of coming to an end. All who are saved are eternally saved from damnation. (John 3:16, John 6:37-39, John 10:29, 1 John 5:13)


    Creation

    We believe in a young earth creation and that all was created by God in 6 literal days. Furthermore, Christ (the Word) had a significant role in creating everything and it was God who spoke everything into existence. (Genesis 1-3, John 1:1-10, Colossians 1:16, Hebrews 1:2)


    Second Coming

    We believe in the imminent, pre-tribulation return of Christ for His bride (the church -the rapture). We also believe in the pre-millenial return of Christ and that he will establish His Messianic kingdom for 1,000 years here on earth. (Matthew 25:31, John 14:1-3, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)
