Doctrinal Statement

Doctrinal Statement

We believe…

  • The supernatural and plenary inspiration of the Scriptures – that they are inerrant and that their teaching and authority are absolute, supreme, final and complete;
  • The trinity of the Godhead – God, the Father; God, the Son; and God, the Holy Spirit;
  • The personality of God – the personality and deity of Jesus Christ, begotten of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, very God and very Man; the personality of the Holy Spirit;
  • The resurrection of Jesus Christ – that His body was raised from the dead according to the Scriptures, and that He ascended into Heaven and sitteth on the right hand of God as the believer’s Advocate;
  • The sinfulness of man – that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, are totally depraved and need a Savior from sin;
  • The Atonement – that Jesus Christ became the sinner’s sacrifice before God and died as the propitiation for the sins of the whole world;
  • The necessity of the new birth – salvation is by grace through faith and not of works; saving faith will maintain good works in the life of the believer;
  • The literal resurrection of the body, both of the just and of the unjust;
  • The everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost;
  • The evangelization of the world – the supreme mission of the church in this age is to preach the gospel to every creature;
  • The second coming of Christ according to Scripture.
