Doctrinal Statement

Overview of Beliefs

The Bible - The Bible is the inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word of God. It is God's revelation, in which He reveals Himself and His purposes to us. It is the authority on all matters of faith and practice. (II Tim. 3:16-17)

God - There is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is the personal, sovereign, Creator of all things. (Deut. 6:4; I John 5:7; Rom. 1:19-20)

Mankind - Mankind was created in the image of God and is the treasure of God’s creation. However, through the sin of Adam, mankind inherited a sin nature. Each person is a sinner by nature and by choice, deserving God’s judgment. (Gen. 1:26-27; Rom. 3:10-19)

Jesus Christ - Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation, He was born of a virgin. He is fully God and fully man. He lived a perfect life, died on a cross, rose bodily from the dead, and ascended to heaven, where He sits at the right hand of the Father. (Is. 7:14; John 1:1, 14; I Cor. 15:1-5)

Salvation - Salvation has been provided for mankind through the substitutionary sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. All who place their faith in Jesus Christ are justified and redeemed on the grounds of His shed blood. (Rom. 5:18; 6:23; Eph. 2:8-9)

The Holy Spirit - The Holy Spirit is a divine person, equal with God the Father and God the Son. He convicts of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He strengthens, leads, and guides each believer. (John 16:8-15; Rom. 8:14; Eph. 3:16)

The Church - The church is made up of those who have been saved through faith in Jesus Christ. The local church is to gather together for worship, and go out into the world to fulfill its role in the Great Commission. (Matt. 28:19-20; Eph. 5:23, 25; I Cor. 12:13)

The Future - The future will hold the resurrection of both the saved and unsaved; the saved to eternal life and the unsaved to eternal punishment. Each believer is to await the glorious and imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ. (I Cor. 15:51-52; Titus 2:12-13)
