Beliefs and Valors.
Our core beliefs feature authority, sufficiency and infallibility of the scriptures.
– The Trinity: the complete deity and humanity of Jesus Christ.
– The full depravity and doorn of humanity
– The substitutionary the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and salvation by grace through faith in Him.
– The assurance of the believer’s salvation through grace, and his discipline when treating us as his children.
– The imminent physical return of Jesus Christ.
We believe all Scripture was given by verbal, complete, and inerrant inspiration of God (2 Tim 3:16) and God has promised to preserve every jot and tittle of what He inspired (Mat 5:18).
We believe in one true God who is manifested in three eternal Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7; Mat 3:16‐17; 28:19).
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is fully and literally God in human form (I Tim 3:16), He was conceived of the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:35), and in the womb of a virgin named Mary (Isa 7:14) received a human body. We believe He was tempted by Satan in all points like we are, yet without sin (Mat 4:1‐11; Heb 4:15; 1 John 2:16). We believe He allowed Himself to be crucified in order to pay the penalty deserved for all our sin (Rom 5:11‐21), He literally and bodily rose again from the grave on the third day (1 Cor 15:3‐4), and He now sits at the right hand of the Father in heaven (Col 3:1).
We believe the Holy Spirit is fully God and the current, earthly manifestation of God through His indwelling of the believer in the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor 3:16; John 16:7), He seals the believer and baptizes (immerses) him into the body of Christ at the moment of salvation (1 Cor 12:13) with the goal of teaching God’s Word and conforming the believer to the very image of Christ (Eph 1:3‐14; 1 Cor 2:9‐16; 2 Cor 3:17‐18). We believe all spiritual blessings are received at the time of salvation (Eph 1:3), the Spirit gives gifts to every believer as He (the Spirit) wills so the believer might effectively communicate the love of Christ (1 Cor 12‐13).
We believe salvation is by God’s grace alone on the basis of the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross and in His resurrection, appropriated by the faith of anyone who will personally believe in his heart and confess with his mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord (Eph 2:8‐9; Rom 10:9‐10). We believe the act of salvation is just as definite and decisive as physical birth (John 3:1‐7). We believe this salvation cannot be reversed or lost and believers are kept by the power of God (John 10:28‐29; 1 John 2:19; Rom 8:35‐ 39; 1 Pet 1:5).
We recognize that the sovereignty of God and the freewill of man are both biblical truths. At the same time we acknowledge that in regard to salvation, how these two truths relate is beyond the finite understanding of man.
We believe the local assembly of believers (church) is God’s instrument in this age. While all genuine, born‐again believers in Christ share family relationship, the overwhelming number of references of the word ”church” in the Bible apply to a local, visible assembly of believers (Acts 14:23; Eph 1:22‐23; 4:11‐16; 1 Tim 3:1‐13). At the Second Coming of Christ, all genuine believers from the time of Christ’s ascension will be united together as the Body of Christ (1The 4:13‐18; Rev 19:7‐8; 21:2). Until then, it is the responsibility of each local church to continue in evangelism, discipleship, and missions both independently and interdependently (Mat 28:18‐20). We believe each local assembly should be a self‐governing, self‐supporting, and self‐propagating as possible. Practicing the ordinances of baptism the Lord’s Table and operating under the leadership of those who hold the office of pastor (also known as ”bishop” or ”elder”) and assisted by those who hold the office of deacon (Mat 28:18‐20; 1 Cor 11:23‐34; 1 Tim 3:1‐13; 1 Pet 5:1‐4; Heb 13:17). We believe every member of the local church has the responsibility to minister the Word of God and support the ministry through prayer, holy living, tithes, and offerings (1 Cor 16:2; Mal 3:10; Acts 4:34‐37; 2 Cor 8:7; Acts 2:41‐47; 13:1‐4).
Return of Christ
We believe in the literal, physical return of Jesus Christ to earth in all His power and glory to judge the world and reign (Acts 1:11; 2 The 1:7‐10). We believe shortly before Christ’s Second Coming, all genuine believers will be raptured to meet the Lord in the air (1 The 4:13‐18; 1 Cor 15:51‐52) followed by a seven year period of tribulation on earth during which time God will judge His people Israel and all these Christ (1 The 5:1‐11; Mat 24). That period of tribulation will end with by Christ’s personal return to rule for a thousand years (Rev 20:1‐6; Mat 25:31‐46).
We believe all men will spend eternity either with Christ or eternally separated from Him. We believe the lost who die wait in a literal Hell for the day of final judgment where they will be assigned to the proper degree of punishment in a literal lake of fire (Rev 20:11‐15). We believe those who have accepted Christ as Savior will experience a bodily resurrection to everlasting life (1 The 4:13‐18; 1 Cor 15:51‐58).
