WHAT WE BELIEVE

 

 

We believe…

… in the plenary-verbal inspiration of the Word of God, that both Old and New Testaments are inerrant in the original writings and are supreme and final authority for faith and the details of life.

 

 

…in the Holy Trinity of the Godhead, existing as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  These three are distinct yet having precisely the same nature, attributes and perfection.

 

 

…the eternal existence of Jesus Christ as God.  His incarnation and virgin birth.  His death on the cross as substitutional atonement for all mankind’s sin; His literal bodily resurrection from the dead; His present ministry of intercession in Heaven; His future return to the earth.

 

 

…the Holy Spirit as the third Person of the Godhead; He convicts men of sin, regenerates, baptizes, indwells, seals, sets apart believers daily; He is a teacher of the Word of God and the guide for daily living.

 

 

…that all men descended from Adam whom God created (not evolved) innocent and pure; Adam fell through the sin of disobedience. Therefore, all men are corrupt in body, soul and spirit and in need of redemption.

 

 

… that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus alone, it is the gift of God apart from works. Salvation requires repentance towards God and turning away from one’s own way; salvation is through personal faith in the Lord Jesus and His finished work; the Holy Spirit regenerates all who receive Jesus and makes them the children of God; that true salvation is an inward gift that manifests outward by a changed life.

 

 

…the infilling with the Holy Spirit as en empowerment of believers for effective service for God. We believe in the manifestation of all spiritual gifts; As signs of the infilling of the Spirit, these gifts are still valid in the Church today.

 

 

…that Jesus will catch up or rapture all true believers one day. We believe in the personal, visible and bodily return of Jesus to this earth; bodily resurrection of all unbelievers to judgement and everlasting punishment in the lake of fire prepared for Satan and all his followers.
