Doctrinal Statement

We Believe:

  • That the Bible is the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.
  • That there is only one God, Creator and Lord of all, who has revealed Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ as true God and true man, His incarnation and virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His imminent personal return to earth.
  • That the Lord Jesus Christ died and shed His blood as a sacrifice for sin, and that we are justified by grace through faith in Christ Jesus apart from any human merit.
  • That the regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful man, through the repentance from sin and the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
  • In the present ministry and gifts of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is able to live a godly life.
  • In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal separation.
  • That the church, the spiritual body of which Christ is the head, is bound together by the Holy Spirit consisting of all who are born again, and that, as the body of Christ He is constantly purifying and preparing for it for His return.
