WE BELIEVE

The Bible 


We teach that the Old & New testament Scriptures are verbally inspired of God and inerrant in the original writings that they are the supreme and final authority in faith and life, and that the Bible is the only written revelation of God to man.  

2 Timothy 3:16-17
2 Peter 1:21
Psalm 119:89
John 10:35

Godhead


We teach there is only one God eternal, omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, manifesting himself in three person - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; one in nature, equal in attributes, power and glory.
 
Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28: 18-19; Mark 12:29
John 1:14; John 10: 30; Acts 5:3-4; 2 Corinthians 13:14
Hebrews 1:1-3; Revelation 1:4-6

 

Man


We teach that man was directly and immediately created by God in his image and likeness (Genesis: 26-27). Man was created as an innocent being, free from sin (Genesis 2:16-17). In

consequence of Adam's sin of disobedience to the revealed will of God, man lost his innocence, became subject to both imputed and inherent sin, incurred the penalty of spiritual and physical death, and became subject to the wrath of God, justly condemned in His sight, wholly unable to save himself.  Apart from God's salvation man is eternally lost.  


Jeremiah 17:9; John 3:36;
Romans 3:9-18, 23; 6:23, 5:10-12; Ephesians 2:1-3
James 2:10; 1 John 5:13; Jude 24

Salvation



We teach that salvation is wholly of God by sovereign grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and entirely apart from any ordinance, ritual, human merit or works.  Salvation is the free gift of God, and once it is received it cannot by any means be lost.  The Christian is secure in Christ forever.
