The Holy Bible and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible and it is literary true for all that it affirms.
There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal.
Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man who ever lived a sinless life. He was born of the virgin called Mary, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind and thus atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory.
Man was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression he fell; his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ, which allows us to receive his redemption and to be renewed by the Holy Spirit. We are saved by the grace of God alone, through Christ alone and by faith alone. Salvation is a gift from God and not a result of our good works or of any human efforts.
The blood of Jesus Christ shed on the Cross of Calvary was sinless and is 100% sufficient to cleanse mankind of all sin. Jesus allowed Himself to be punished for both our sinfulness and our sins, enabling all those who believe to be free from the penalty of sin, which is death. Jesus Christ defeated the devil and destroyed his power on the cross and that deliverance, healing, and eternal life are only found in Him.
The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead. He is 100% God and He indwells all believers as the seal of God’s redemptions. He empowers us to know, love and serve God. Without the Holy Spirit we can do nothing.
The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus ‘ Great Commission. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the church as a member of the body of believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new convert is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
The Lord’s Supper:
A unique time of communion in the presence of God when elements of bread and grape juice (the body and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross.
We believe marriage is defined in the Bible as a covenant, a sacred bond between one man and one woman, instituted by public and publicly entered into before God.
It is the Father’s will for believers to become whole, healthy and successful in all areas of life. But because of the fall, many may not receive the full benefits of God’s will while on earth. That fact, though, should never prevent all believers from seeking the full benefits of Christ’s provisions in order to better serve others.
Mental and Emotional:
Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; those that are saved to the resurrection of life and those that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation.
Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
After each person living one life on earth, the unbelievers will be judged by God and sent to Hell where they will be eternally tormented with the Devil and the Fallen Angels.
Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the scriptures.
