What We Believe
What We Believe
WE BELIEVE that the Bible, composed of the 66 Books of the Old and New Testaments, is wholly and verbally inspired of God in its original manuscripts. As such it is our inerrant, supreme, and final authority in faith and conduct.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21
WE BELIEVE in one God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 3:15-17; John 10:30
WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, and that He is true God and true man, and is the only and sufficient Mediator between God and man.
John 1:1; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 4:15; 1 Timothy 2:5
WE BELIEVE in the personality of the Holy Spirit and that His ministry is to reveal Christ to men in the regeneration and sanctification of their souls.
John 16:8; Acts 5:3-4; 1 Corinthians 12:13
WE BELIEVE that man was created in the image of God and that he sinned and thereby incurred spiritual death.
Genesis 1:26; Romans 5:17-21
WE BELIEVE in the substitutionary death of the Lord Jesus Christ for our sins, in the resurrection of His body, His ascension into Heaven, and His personal and visible premillennial return; and that salvation is received only through personal faith in Him.
John 3:16; Romans 5:8; 10:13-17; 1 Corinthians 15:42-58; Revelation 20
WE BELIEVE in the two gospel ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism is the immersion of a believer in water, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, testifying to that person’s conversion to Christ. It depicts the death and resurrection of Christ, and the believer’s own death to sin and resurrection to newness of life. The Lord’s Supper, given to believers, is the symbolic remembrance of the Lord’s death until He comes.
Matthew 3:13-17; 28:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-32
WE BELIEVE that a New Testament Church is a body of believers thus baptized, associated for worship, service, the spread of the Gospel, and righteous living to all the World.
Matthew 5:13,16; Acts 1:8; 2:42; 2 Timothy 2:2
