We believe the Holy Bible to be the sole authoritative Word of God. All the Scripture is given by inspiration of God, profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16)
We believe that the Godhead exists in three divine persons: the Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three manifestations of the Triune God have precisely the same nature, attributes and perfections, and are worthy of precisely the same homage, confidence, and obedience.
We believe in the unique deity of our Lord Jesus Christ as being born of the Father. We believe in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection and ascension to the right hand of the Father. We believe Jesus Christ is the only Mediator between God and Man, and the only advocate and Intercessor before God on behalf of humanity.
We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, that He descended to Earth to regenerate, to indwell and to set apart the believers to holy life. The Holy Spirit is here also to convict of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.
We believe and accept the biblical account of the Creation. We believe that Man was created in the image of God: male and female created He them. I/We believe in the personality of Satan; that he is the unholy god that defied God the Almighty, and rebelled against Him. Satan is the author of all powers of darkness and commands all enemies of God, but is destined to the judgment of an eternal justice in the lake of fire.
We believe that Man was created in innocence, under the law of his Creator, but by voluntary transgression and rebellion against the will of God, fell from his sinless state in consequence of which all mankind are now sinners, not only by constraint but of choice, and therefore under just condemnation without defense or excuse.
We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become the children of God. By the new birth, the one dead in trespasses and sins is made a partaker of the divine nature and receives eternal life, the free gift of God.
We believe that sanctification (becoming holy, setting apart) is the process by which God makes us partakers of His holiness. It is a progressive work that is begun in regeneration and continued in our hearts by the work of the Holy Spirit in connection with self-denial, watchfulness and prayer, and completed at the glorious second coming of Jesus Christ for His Church.
We affirm that all believers are sealed by the Holy Spirit, and are kept by the power of God through faith unto the redemption of the body. We believe that it is the privilege of the believer to rejoice in the assurance of His salvation through the testimony of God’s Word; which, however, clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion to the flesh.
We believe that the local congregation is the voluntary association of members of the body of Christ, of baptized believers, equal in rank and privilege, subject to the Word of God, associated by a declaration of faith and fellowship of the Gospel, observing the sacraments of ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, and exercising the rights and privileges invested in them by His Word. We also believe that the true mission of the Church is the faithful witnessing of Christ to all men as we have the opportunity.
We believe there are two sacraments or ordinances taught in the Bible: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
We believe that baptism in water, although not essential for salvation, is a public testimony of the believer’s identification with Christ in His death and resurrection. Baptism should be administered in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Christ instituted the Lord’s Supper to commemorate His death as a testimony to the world until He comes. It should never be engaged in without examination. All who have confessed their faith in Christ and repent of their sins are invited to the Holy Table. (John 3:23, Romans 6:3-5, 1 Corinthians 11:23-32, Luke 22:19, Matthew 26:27)
We believe it is the solemn obligation and responsibility of every believer to be a personal soul-winner, and to do the best to carry out Jesus’ command to share the Gospel to the whole world. I/We believe that the first day of the week, the Lord’s Day, is the Christian Sabbath. It should be hallowed by rest and by worship. Aside from the duties of necessity and mercy, it should be kept holy and devoted to public and private worship, spiritual nourishment, and praise.
We believe that the great Gospel blessing which Jesus Christ secures to such as believe in Him is justification. With Paul the Apostle we affirm: “FOR THEREIN IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD REVEALED FROM FAITH TO FAITH. AS IT IS WRITTEN: THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.” (Romans 1:17)
