What We Believe
We teach that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, complete, and authoritative Word of God that is sufficient for salvation and life in God.
We teach from the Bible that God is one but He is also a tri-unity of three persons each distinct from each other yet unified without division of nature, essence, or being. God is the Creator of all things and has existed eternally without change, sovereignly controlling all things according to His purpose and will. As God, He determines all that is true and right and is in Himself all knowing, all powerful, all just, and all merciful. He is a God of wrath and a God of love. He alone is holy God.
We teach from the Bible that each person was created for God’s glory, has rebelled against this purpose, is totally depraved in sin from the time of their conception, fails to live up to God’s righteous standard, and is rightfully subject to God’s just condemnation and wrath. Each person is helpless to alter this bleak eternal status and must rely completely upon the mercy of God to save his or her soul from damnation.
We teach from the Bible that God graciously poured out mercy upon mankind by sending His Son Jesus Christ to live God’s requirement of righteousness. He willingly offered his life as a sufficient substitute sacrifice for the payment of people’s sin, was resurrected bodily from the dead, and ascended back to his Father in heaven. He will return for his church some day in the future.
We teach from the Bible that even though God in His sovereignty has elected the redeemed before time began, each person must by faith repent of their rebellion and sin against God and receive Jesus Christ to save and rule over their life. Having done this, they receive the Holy Spirit, they become adopted as children of God, they are counted as righteous in His sight, and their salvation is secured.
We teach from the Bible that the Holy Spirit is part of the tri-unity of God and indwells the believer to mature his or her faith and to purge the mortal flesh of its sinful impulses and habits while working to convict unbelievers of their sin and future judgment by God.
We teach from the Bible that there is a future resurrection for all mankind. Those who have received Jesus Christ will be resurrected to eternal life and will be rewarded by him in regards to earthly service. Those who have not received Jesus Christ will be resurrected to eternal death, and sentenced to eternal damnation in the lake of fire.
We teach from the Bible that the Church is comprised worldwide of all races, tribes, and tongues who profess faith in Jesus Christ. They live on earth to glorify God and to fulfill the mission of his Son to make disciples of Jesus from all people groups upon the face of the earth.
