Statement of Faith

We believe:

  1. In the word-by-word inspiration, inerrancy, and final authority of the Holy Scriptures.
  2. In one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  3. In the Lord Jesus Christ as true God and true man; His virgin birth, sinless humanity, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, present advocacy, and bodily return.
  4. In the fall of man, resulting in his complete and universal separation from God and his need of salvation.
  5. That the Lord Jesus Christ shed His blood and died as a sacrifice for the sins of every person in the whole world.
  6. That salvation is a free and everlasting gift of God, entirely apart from works, received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  7. That the Holy Spirit regenerates with divine life and personally indwells the believer upon faith in Christ for salvation.
  8. In the bodily resurrection and unending life of the saved with the Lord and the bodily resurrection and unending punishment of the unsaved.
  9. The church, beginning at Pentecost, is the body of Christ comprised of those who have trusted Jesus Christ as Savior.
  10. It is the church’s responsibility to glorify Christ by preaching the Gospel to the world and making disciples of all nations.

We also hold and teach the following positions:

  1. The pretribulational rapture of the church and Christ’s premillennial return to the earth.
  2. The historical-grammatical interpretation of the Bible.
  3. That a soul once saved can never be lost.
  4. The practice of believer’s baptism by immersion.
  5. That we do not practice what are commonly known as the “sign gifts”.
