Where We Stand
We believe in the one ever-living, eternal God: infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes and purpose; and possessing absolute, indivisible diety. This one true God has revealed Himself as Father in creation, to us through His Son in redemption, and in us as the Holy Spirit dwelling within.
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, a divine revelation from God to man. We accept the Scriptures as the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct. We follow a strict formula for establishing our beliefs as taught in 2 Cor. 13:1, Isa. 28 9-11, & 1 Pe. 1:20. Simply put, 2 or 3 Scriptures in proper context. A single verse does not qualify to establish a belief or support a tradition. Many traditions from many denominations fall to the axe of this study formula.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin; that he lived a sinless life, was crucified on Calvary for our sins, and bodily rose from the grave; and that he has been exalted to the throne of God where He is the only mediator between God and man. We believe that through his death and life we have personal salvation and power for victorious living.
We believe that all men have sinned and stand in need of redemption, which is obtained through the new birth by faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those repenting of sin and being born again become children of God and heirs with Christ.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is active in the world today and that the baptism of the Holy Spirit, with His accompanying gifts, is the privilege of all New Testament believers.
We believe the Church has been “called out” of the world to be a habitation of God through the Spirit. The church is one body made up of many members, diverse in their gifts and the callings. As the body of Christ on earth, the church offers hope to mankind.
The Second Coming
We believe in the pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ to receive his bride, the church, unto Himself. At his coming, we believe the dead in Christ will rise. We believe in Christ’s millennial reign upon the earth after which we will inhabit a new heaven and a new earth and be in the fellowship and service of God for all eternity.
