What We Believe
We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired of God, and inerrant in the original writing, and that they are of supreme and final authority in matters of faith and practice, the true center of Christian union. The Authorized King James Version is to be used in all classes, curriculum materials, preaching services, and ministries.
The True God
We believe that there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit Whose name is JEHOVAH, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth; that He is inexpressibly glorious in holiness and worthy of all possible honor, confidence and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost – equal in every divine perfection and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.
The Creation and Fall of Man
We believe in the literal Genesis account of creation. We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings since the fall are born with a sinful nature, and, in the case of those who reach the ago or moral responsibility, are sinners in thought, word, and deed.
The Person and Work of Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of Mary, a virgin, and is true God and true man; that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood and His resurrection, and we believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and in His present life there as High Priest and Advocate.
The Son of The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person; equal with God the Father and God the Son and of the same nature; that He was active in the creation; that in His relationto the unbelieving world He restrains the Evil One until God's purpose is fulfilled; that He convicts of sin, of righteousness and of jjudgment that He bears witness to the truth of the Gospel in preaching and testimony; that He is the agent in the new birth; that He seals, baptizes, empowers, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies and helps the believer in accordance with the Scriptures, We believe that God is sovereign in the bestowment of all His gifts, and that the gifts of evangelists, pastors and teachers are sufficient for the perfecting of the saints today; and that speaking in tongues and the working of sign miracles gradually ceased as the New Testament Scriptures were completed and their authority became established. Because of the Word of God, we reject the Charismatic movement.
We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace through the mediatorial offices of the Son of God, Who, by the appointment of the Father, freely took upon Him our nature; that being conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, yet without sin, He honored the divine law by His personal obedience and by His death made a full atonement for ours sins; that, having risen bodily from the dead, He is now enthroned in Heaven and, uniting His wonderful person the tenderest sympathies with divine perfection, He is in every way qualified to be a suitable, a compassionate and an all-sufficient Savior. We believe in the eternal security of the believer in Christ; that it is impossible for one born into the family of God ever to be lost; that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God. We believe in this the Church age, commonly known as the dispensation of the age of grace, that the Holy Spirit indwells each and every believer from the moment he receives Christ as Savior. We believe this indwelling alone makes it possible to live a victorious christian life; that the speaking in tongues and divine healing movements are not related as outward evidence of the Spirit-filled life; that the Spirit-filled life is to be the normal experience of every believer and that regardless of one's place or station in life, he is filled with the Spirit when he is yielded to the Holy Spirit and is occupied with Jesus Christ and the Word of God.
Priesthood of Believers
We believe in the priesthood of all believers; that all believers have immediate access into the Holiest by the blood of Jesus; that we need no human agency to intercede for us before the throne of Grace; and that Jesus Christ is our only mediator before God.
A. We believe that the universal church is the mystical body of Christ of which he is the living Head, and the regenerate believers of the age, Jew and Gentile alike, are members.
B. The local church is a body of baptized (immersed) believers in Christ, with Scriptural officers of pastors and deacons, organized to meet together for the purpose of observing the ordinances and to carry out the principles, precepts and commission of Christ, to meet together in one place.
C. We believe that the scriptural ordinances of the Church are baptist (immersion) and the Lord's Supper; that baptism should be administered to believers only as a symbol of their belief in the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and as a testimony to the world of that belief; and that the Lord's suppers should be partaken of by the baptized believers only to show forth His death till He comes.
D. We believe in the sovereignty and independence of each local church from any centralized power, whether from other churches, denominations, or the State. WE believe in the separation of Church and State. We believe in obeying the “Powers that be” of government except where they violate the commands of God's Word.
A. We believe in the literal fulfillment of the prophecies and promised of the Scriptures which foretell and assure the future regeneration and restoration of Israel as a nation.
Angels, Fallen and Unfallen
A. We believe that God created an innumerable company of sinless, spiritual being known as angels; that one, “Lucifer, son of the morning” – the highest in rank – sinned through pride, thereby becoming Satan; that a great company of the angels followed him in his moral fall, some of whom became demons and are active as his agents and associates in the prosecution of his unholy purposes, while others who fell are “reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”
B. We believe that Satan is the originator of sin, and that, under the permission of God, he, through subtlety, led our first parents into transgression, thereby accomplishing their moral fall and subjecting them and their prosperity to his own power; that he is the enemy of God and the people of God, opposing and exalting himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped; and that he who in the beginning said, “I will be like the most High,” in his warfare appears as an angel of light, even counterfeiting the works of God by fostering religious movements and systems of doctrine, which systems in every case are characterized by a denial of the efficacy of the blood of Christ and of Salvation by grace alone.
C. We believe that Satan was judged at the cross, though not then executed, and that he, a usurper, now rules as the “god of this world”; that, at the second coming of Christ, Satan will be bound and cast into the abyss for a thousand years, and after the thousand years he will be loosed for a little season and then “cast into the lake of fire and brimstone,” where he “shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
D. We believe that a great company of angels kept their holy estate and are before the throne of God, from whence they are sent forth as ministering spirits to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation.
E. We believe that man was made lower than the angels; and that, in His incarnation, Christ took for a little time this lower place that He might lift the believer to His own sphere above the angels.
