We believe the Old and New Testament are the very Word of God. (Matt. 5:18, John 16:12-13, 2 Tim 3:16-17, Heb. 1:1-2, and 2 Peter 1:20-21).
We believe that God is one being, yet three persons [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit]. (Deut. 6:4, Matt. 28:19-20, and 2 Cor. 13:14).
We believe He is the Son of God, born of a virgin, who died to redeem man, and physical resurrected from the dead, now reigns in heaven and is coming a king one day. (John 1:1-2, 14, Rom. 3:24-25, Eph. 1:7, Acts 1:9-10, Rom. 8:34, 1 Thess. 1:10, 4:13-18, 5:9, and Rev. 3:10, 19:11-16).
The Holy Spirit:
We believe that He is God, and that He is a person. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment; He seals, indwells, and empowers the believer. (John 16:8-11, Rom. 8:9, 1 Cor. 12:12-14, and Eph. 1:13-14).
We believe man was created in the image and likeness of God, but man fell into sin, and is unable to help himself out of the fallen state he is in. (Gen. 1:26-27, Rom. 3:9-23, and Eph. 2:1-3).
We believe Satan is a created being, the father of all lies, the open enemy of God, he and his follower well be cast into hell. (Job 1:6-7, Isaiah 14:12-17, Matt. 4:2-11, and Rev. 20:10).
We believe that salvation is a gift from God, it must be received personal by faith, once saved you are sealed and kept by God; assured by this we live for Him and not ourselves, even as we war with are old sinful nature.(John 1:12, Eph. 2:8-10, Rom. 8:1, Gal. 5:13, Rom. 6:13, 8:12-13, Gal. 5:16-25).
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all humanity, those to eternal life, and those to eternal hell. The believer at the time of death is present with their Lord. The unbeliever at the time of death is in conscious misery through all eternity (Matt. 25:46, Rev. 20:5-6, Phil. 1:23, 3:21, Matt. 25:41-46, 2 Thess. 1:7-9, Rev. 20:11-15).
We believe in the dispensational view of the Bible. That God dealt/deals with men throughout different ages; from Innocence (Gen. 1:26, Ecc. 7:29, Gen. 1:28), Conscience (Gen. 3:5, Rom. 2:14-15), Human government(Gen. 9:6, Rom. 13:1-5, 1 Tim. 2:1-3), Promise (Gen. 12:2-3, 17:1-8, 26:1-5), Law (Ex. 19:3-8, 24:3,7, Gal. 3:16-18), Grace (Eph. 3:1-7, 1:3, 2:11-17, Matt. 16:18, Acts 2:1-4), and Kingdom (Rev. 20:1-6, 11-15, Matt. 25:41).
The local church is those that have been born again in Christ Jesus. The church is to preach the Word, worship, and give glory to God, practice the Lord’s Supper, Baptism, and make disciples of all nations.
We believe man was created in the image and likeness of God, but man fell into sin, and is unable to help himself out of the fallen state he is in.
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
What then? Are we better than they? Not at all; for we have already charged that both Jews and Greeks are all under sin; as it is written,
“There is none righteous, not even one;
There is none who understands,
There is none who seeks for God;
All have turned aside, together they have become useless;
There is none who does good,
There is not even one.”
“Their throat is an open grave,
With their tongues they keep deceiving,”
“The poison of asps is under their lips”;
“Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness”;
“Their feet are swift to shed blood,
Destruction and misery are in their paths,
And the path of peace they have not known.”
“There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God; because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.
But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.
