Statement Of Faith
We believe in one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and
Holy Spirit; and that He created everything out of nothing for His own pleasure and purpose.
We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally
inspired Word of God, inerrant and infallible, and
the supreme and final authority in matters of faith and life, interpreted by
the Holy Spirit to each individual believer.
We believe that man was created in the image of God, and that when he sinned
the race incurred both physical and spiritual death; thus man became alienated
from God and incapable of remedying his sinful condition by his own means.
We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was begotten of the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, shed His blood to save mankind,
was resurrected bodily, and never ceased to be God.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ lived a sinless and perfect life that
fully pleased His Father: that He died for our sins on the cross, bearing the
judgment demanded by God's holy justice against sin, thus making it possible
for God to remain just and at the same time to justify those who believe in
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died in the place of each individual
sinner and that all who believe in Him as their personal Saviour are justified
through His shed blood and have become a child of God.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ rose bodily from the dead, never to die
again, and is ascended to the right hand of the Father, where He intercedes as
High Priest and Advocate on behalf of all who believe in Him.
We believe that those who, by faith alone and through no merit of their own,
receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior are miraculously born again of the Holy
Spirit and, as children of God, become partakers of His divine nature and are
eternally secure in Him.
We believe that the Holy Spirit baptizes all true believers into the one true
church, His Body; that He indwells them eternally, bestows spiritual gifts upon
them, and empowers them for service and holy living.
We believe that the Scriptures have given us everything pertaining to life and
godliness, including not only salvation from the penalty of sin but instruction
in righteousness for present sanctification and victorious living, to the glory
We believe that two ordinances, neither of which is essential to salvation, are
to be observed by all believers in obedience to our Lord until Christ's return:
Baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper.
We believe in the pre-tribulational appearance of Jesus Christ for the Rapture
of His Church (all born-again believers).
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the redeemed at the premillennial
return of Christ for His church, when the souls and spirits of those who have
died will be reunited with their bodies, now immortal, and that believers who
are alive at that time, their bodies likewise transformed into immortality,
will be caught up together with them to meet Christ in the air, ever to be with
We believe that at death the souls of the redeemed pass immediately into
Christ's presence to remain there until the resurrection of the body at
Christ's return for the church.
We believe in the immortality of our souls and the resurrection of the just and
the unjust: the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting
punishment of the lost.
We also believe that at death the souls of the lost go to hell, where they
remain until they are brought before Christ at the Great White Throne final
judgment to be judged according to their works and cast into the lake of fire,
there to remain eternally.
We believe that Israel is God's chosen people, and that the restoration of the
Jews in their own land is the fulfillment of the Word of God.
We believe in the personal, bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ to rescue
Israel at Armageddon and to establish His millennial kingdom, reigning over
this earth from His father David's throne in Jerusalem, and that His redeemed
will reign with Him in resurrected bodies for 1,000 years.
