DOCTRINAL STATEMENT OF FAITH
THIS CHURCH BELIEVES the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be God-breathed, the complete revelation of His will without error for the salvation of men, and the supreme and final authority in faith, doctrine, and life.
THIS CHURCH BELIEVES in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and externally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. THIS CHURCH BELIEVES in the personality of Satan and other spirit beings as enemies of God, the saints, and His holy angels. THIS CHURCH BELIEVES that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death: that all men are born with a sinful nature, incapable of pleasing God, and in case of those who reach accountability, become culpable sinners, utterly lost; and that only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation be obtained. Genesis 1:26, Isaiah 64:6, John 3:5-8 THIS CHURCH BELIEVES that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is the true God and is true man. THIS CHURCH BELIEVES that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as the representative and propitiatory sacrifice. THIS CHURCH BELIEVES in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, His ascension into heaven, and His personal, bodily presence there for us as a Forerunner, High Priest, and Advocate. THIS CHURCH BELIEVES that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only grounds for justification and salvation: and that those who by faith receive Him as personal Savior are born of the Holy Spirit and become children of God. Romans 5:1-8, 1 John 1:7, 1 Peter 1:18-19 THIS CHURCH BELIEVES that the true Church is composed of all persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ, of which He is the Head. Romans 12:5, Ephesians 1:22; 4:15 THIS CHURCH BELIEVES in the personal, bodily, visible return of our Lord Jesus with His saints to establish His millennial kingdom here on this earth, and the judgment of all nations. Acts 1:10-11, Matthew 24:29-31 THIS CHURCH BELIEVES that is our primary business to shed the light of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ continuously in all the earth until our Lord’s return. THIS CHURCH BELIEVES that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Jesus, to convict men, to regenerate the unbelieving sinner, to indwell, instruct, sanctify, fill and empower the believer for godly living and service.
THIS CHURCH BELIEVES that at death all men continue in conscious existence, awaiting the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust; the saved to everlasting blessedness; the lost to everlasting punishment.
