Doctrinal Statement

  1. We believe that love one for another as Jesus loves the believer manifests our discipleship, proves our love for God and symbolizes our authority as New Testament churches. Love is therefore the great commandment of the LORD Jesus Christ upon which all others are dependent  (Matt. 22:35-40; John 13:34,35; John 15:12; 1st John 4:7-21; 1st John 5:1-3; Rev. 2:4,5)
  2. We believe in the infallible, verbal inspiration of the whole Bible and that the Bible is the all sufficient rule of faith and practice (Psalm 119:160; 2nd Tim 3:16,17)
  3. We believe in the personal triune God: Father. Son, and Holy Spirit equal in divine perfection (Matt. 28:19)
  4. We believe in the Genesis account of Creation (Gen 1:2)
  5. We believe that Satan is a fallen angel, the archenemy of God and  man, the unholy god of this world, and that his destiny is the eternal lake of fire (Isa. 14:12-15; Ezek. 28:11-19; Matt. 25:41; 2nd Cor. 4:4; Eph. 6:10-17; Rev. 20-10)
  6. We believe in the virgin birth and sinless humanity of Jesus Christ (Matt. 1:18-20; 2nd Cor. 5:21; 1 Peter 2:22)
  7. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ (John 10:30; John 1:1,14; 2nd Cor. 5:19)
  8. We believe the Holy Spirit is the divine Administrator for Jesus Christ in His churches (Luke 24:49; John 14:16, 17; Acts 1:4,5,8; Acts 2:1-4)
  9. We  believe that miraculous spiritual manifestation gifts were done away when the Bible was completed.  Faith, Hope and Love are the vital abiding  Spiritual Gifts (1st Cor. Chapters 12-14)
  10. We believe that man was created in the image of God and lived in inncency until he fell by voluntary transgression from his sinless state,  the result being that all mankind are sinners (Gen. 1:26; Gen. 3:6-24; Rom. 5:12,19)
  11. We believe that the suffering and death of Jesus Christ was substitutionary for all mankind and is efficacious only to those who believe (Isa 53:6 Heb 2:9 1st Peter 2:24 1st Peter 3:18 2nd Peter 3:9 1st John 2:2)
  12. We believe in the bodily resurrection and ascension of Christ and the bodily resurrection of his saints (Matt 28:1-7 Acts 1:9-11 1st Cor. 15:42-58 1st Thess 4:13-18
  13. We believe in the premillennial, personal, bodily return of Christ as the crowning event of the Gentile age. This event will include the resurrection of the righteous to eternal heaven, and the Millennium will be followed by the resurrection of the unrighteous unto eternal punishment in the lake of fire and that the righteous shall enter into the heaven age (John 14:1-6 1st Thess 4:13-18 2nd thess 2:8 Rev 20:4-6 Rev. 20:11-15 Rev. 21:8)
  14. We believe that the depraved sinner is saved wholly by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, and the requisites to regeneration are repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 13:3-5 John 3:16-18 Acts 20:21 Rom. 6:23 Eph 2:8,9) and that the Holy Spirit convicts sinners, regenerates, seals, secures, and indwells every believer  (John 3:6 John16:8 Rom. 8:9-11  1st Cor. 6:19,20 Eph. 4:30 Titus 3:5
  15. We believe that all who trust Jesus Christ for salvation are eternally secure in Him and shall not perish (John 3:36 John 10:27-30 Rom 8:35-39 Heb. 10:39 1st Peter 1:5
  16. We believe that God deals with believers as His children, that He chastises the disobedient, and that He rewards the obedient (Matt 16:27 Matt 25:14-23 John 1:12 Heb. 12:5-11 2nd John 8 Rev. 22:12
