What We Hold True To...
We believe that the Bible is the inerrant, inspired Word of God and that it is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice. For reasons of textual reliability, we believe that God has preserved His Word for the English speaking people in the King James Version of the Bible. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, II Peter 1:20-21)
God the Father
God is a
Person, eternally existing, as a Trinity in unity – Father, Son, and Holy
Spirit – three Persons and yet one God.
Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 26:19, I Corinthians 8
God the Son
Jesus Christ, eternally existing, is the only begotten Son of God, who was a sinless man to redeem us. He was born of a virgin and is 100% God and 100% man. Luke 1:30-55, John 1:1-15, Philippians 2:5-8
God the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit of God lives on this earth inside your body if you are saved. He came in at the moment of salvation and took up permanent residency.
I Corinthians 6:19-20, John 14:17, Ephesians 1;13-14, 4:30
Sacrifice of Christ
Lord Jesus Christ suffered and died as a substitutionary payment for the sins
of the whole world. He physically arose from the dead and then ascended into
Heaven. Simple faith in this sacrifice is the only way of salvation for
Luke 24, Acts 1:9-11, Romans 5:8-10, I Peter 3:18
was created in the image of God but fell through sin, bringing not only
physical death, but also spiritual death or eternal separation from God. Now
all of mankind exists as a fallen race with an inherited sinful nature.
Genesis 2:16, Genesis 3:16-19, Romans 3:10-23, Romans 6:23
Himself will soon come again in the air to catch up His Church to reward their
service. The unbelievers left behind will go through a period called the
Tribulation, after which Christ will return to the Earth to set up His Kingdom
of one thousand years of righteous rule. After this, the unbelievers of all
ages will stand at the Great White Throne to be judged and cast into the Lake
of Fire, separated from God forever, while the believers spend eternity in the
fullness of joy in Heaven with the Lord.
Matthew 24:29-42, I Thessalonians 4:16-18
church is a group of believers baptized by water, banded together for edification,
exhortation, and evangelism as commanded by Christ in the Great Commission;
preaching the Gospel to every creature.
Mark 16:15, I Corinthians 12:12, Ephesians 1:22-23
