Statement of Faith

The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired of God; are inerrant in the original writing, and are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.

There is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of Mary, a virgin, and is true God and true man.

Man was created in the image of God.  He sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also that spiritual death which is separation from the presence of God in the Lake of Fire.  All human beings are born with a sin nature and are sinners in thought, word and deed.

The Lord Jesus Christ died for sins according to the Scriptures as a substitionary sacrifice.  All who believe in Him are justified through His shed blood.

Jesus Christ was bodily resurrected from the dead three days after His crucifixion.  He ascended into Heaven and is now at the right hand of God serving as the believer's High Priest and Advocate.  One day, Jesus Christ will physically return to Earth again.

All who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.

The believer is eternally secured in his salvation by the power of God.

The prophecies and promises of the Scriptures which foretell and assure the future regeneration and restoration of Israel as a nation will be literally fulfilled.

There will be a bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust.  Believers will be raised to everlasting blessedness, but unbelievers will be raised to everlasting punishment.

The Scriptural ordinances of the Church are baptism (by immersion) and the Lord's Supper.  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.  The Lord's Supper should be observed only by believers as a remembrance of His vicarious death, until He comes again.
