Doctrinal Position

The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.

Matthew 5:17-20; John 10:35; 2 Timothy 3:16; I Corinthians 2:13.

There is one God, Creator of all things, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Acts 5:3-4; I Corinthians 12:4-6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Ephesians 1:1-14.

Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the basis of His shed blood. He rose bodily from the dead according to the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high. He is now our great High Priest and Advocate.

Matthew 1:22-23; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-18; Romans 3:21-26; Hebrews 1:1-3; Hebrews 2:7; I Peter 3:18.

The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and to regenerate the believing sinner. He has been sent to indwell, guide, teach, gift and empower the believer for godly living and service, and to convict the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.

John 14:16-26; John 16:5-11.

Man was created in the image and likeness of God, fell through disobedience and incurred both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Genesis 1:26-27; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 1:18-20.

Salvation has been provided through the atoning death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him, receiving Him as personal Lord and Savior, who are redeemed through His blood and are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God.

Romans 3:21-26; Romans 10:9-10; Titus 3:5-6; I Peter 1:3-5.

Water baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation.

Acts 2:38; Colossians 2:12; I Corinthians 11:23-26.

The Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church, which has been commissioned by Him to make disciples in all the world.

Matthew 18:19- 20; Romans 1:4; I Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 1:22-23.

The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Supper.  

Acts 2:42-47.

The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ will be personal and visible. This is the believer's blessed hope and is a vital truth, which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service.

Acts 1:9-11; Titus 2:13; I Peter 1:13; 2 Peter 3:11.

There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life; for the latter, to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.

Matthew 25:31-46; Hebrews 9:27.
