Our Statement of Beliefs

We believe:

In the unity of one true and living God.

And that it is revealed in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matt. 3:16, 17; 28:19, John 17).

In the Bible as the inspired Word of God.

That the entire Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God (II Tim. 3:16, Heb. 4:12, I Pet. I:23-25, II Pet. 1:19-21).

In the divinity and humanity of Christ Jesus.

Jesus is God come in the flesh. He is both divine and human (Luke 1:26-38, John 14:1-3, Acts 2:26, 3:14, 15, Phil. 2:5-11).

In the blood atonement of Jesus Christ on the cross.

The blood of Jesus was shed for our sins; it is only through his shed blood that our sins are forgiven and we are justified by faith in him (Acts 4:12, Rom. 5:1-11, Eph. 1:3-15).

In the bodily resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ.

He is presently engaged in preparing heaven and interceding for the saints (Luke 24:39-43, John 20:24-29, John 14:1-6, Rom. 8:34).

In the second coming of Christ.

That Jesus Christ will return to this earth to capture his bride (the Church) and judge the world. (Acts 1:10, 11, I Thess. 4:13-18, II Thess. 1:7-10, James 5:8, Rev. 1:7).

That man, in his natural state, is a sinner.

And that without Christ he is lost, undone, without hope, and without God (Rom. 3:19-23, Gal. 3:22, Eph. 2:1, 2, 12).

In the doctrines of an actual heaven and an actual hell.

That the Scriptures clearly set forth the doctrines of eternal punishment for the lost, and eternal bliss for the saved; hell for the unsaved and heaven for the saved (Matt. 5:34, 41, 46, Luke 16:19-31, John 14:1-3, Rev. 20:11-15).

In salvation by grace through the Lord Jesus Christ.

That the repentant sinner is saved only by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ through heartfelt faith which results in regeneration of the person (Acts 3:19,20, Rom. 5:1, Eph. 2:8-10).

In water baptism by immersion in water.

And that baptism by immersion in water in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, is a symbol of identification with Jesus Christ in his death, burial and resurrection (Matt. 3:15, 16, 28:19, 20, Acts 8:38, Rom. 6:1-4).

In the Holy Spirit.

Whose purpose in the redemptive plan is to convict men of sin: regenerate the repentant believer and give gifts to the believer as he wills. (Heb. 2:4)

In the spiritual unity of believers.

That all believers everywhere are spiritually united in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Eph. 4.13, I Pet. 3:8)

That God calls his followers to go and preach the gospel in all the world.  

That Christ’s followers are to make disciples of all nations  (Matt. 28:20, Mark 16:15).

And that God is good and forgiving.

He is full of mercy to everyone who calls on him (Psalm 86:5).
