Bible: We believe that the Bible (Old and New Testament, 66 books) is the inspired Word of God (both plenary and verbal) and wholly without error in the original manuscripts (inerrancy). The Bible alone is the very Word of God and is the final authority on all issues of life. (Matthew 5:18, 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21, Revelation 22:18-19).
God: We believe that there is one true God who has revealed Himself throughout the Scriptures as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (the Trinity). He is one God with three distinct persons, co-equally existing in perfection and eternality, and all three are one God. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22, John 4:24, 5:23, 10:30, 14:9, Luke 10:30 John 1, Hebrews 1:1-3, 1 Corinthians 8:6)
Creation: We believe that God created the entire universe “ex-nihilo” (out of nothing) in 6 literal days, and that the plain reading of Genesis constitutes a historically and factually accurate account of creation.
Jesus Christ: We believe that Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the promised Messiah and the second person of the Trinity. He is the eternal Word and God’s only begotten Son. Jesus Christ voluntarily became a man when He was miraculously conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. He thus became “Emmanuel” (God with us), the perfect God-Man. Jesus is therefore fully God and fully man. He is the sinless, spotless Lamb of God who died on the cross of Calvary to pay for the sins of the world, and rose again three days later to give eternal life to all who would repent and put their complete trust in Him for salvation. Jesus Christ is our Great High Priest and the one and only Mediator between God and man. (Isaiah 7:14, 9:6-7, Matthew 1:18-25, Mark 14:61-62, John 1:1-3, 14, 29, 5:18, 8:58, 10:30, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Colossians 1:15; Philippians 2:5-8; 1 Timothy 2:5, Hebrews 4:14-16; 1 John 5:20, Revelation 11:15-17; 20:4-6, 11-15)
Holy Spirit: We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity; that He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment; and draws men and women to Christ for salvation by prevenient grace. The Holy Spirit causes spiritual birth and indwells, seals, sanctifies, guides, equips, teaches and fills the believer. The Holy Spirit enables believers to walk in obedience to God and His Word and gives believers spiritual gifts to be exercised by the believers to edify and exhort the body of Christ, which is the church. (John 3:5, 14:1617, 26,15:26-27, 16:7-15; Acts 1:8, 5:3-4; Romans 8:9, 14; I Corinthians 2:10-11, 6:11, 19, 12:4-13; 2Corinthians 3:18; Galatians 5:16-18, 22-23; Ephesians 1:13-14, 4:30, 5:18-21, Hebrews 3:7-9)
Man: We believe in the distinctiveness of man to rule over the entire God-created earth. God created man alone in His image on the sixth literal day of creation. Though created perfect, man has sinned, and as a result, brought death and sin into his nature. All men are guilty of sin, both by nature and by choice, and are inherently sinful and lost, separated from God, and in need of salvation. (Genesis 1:26-28; 2:7, 18-24, 3:1-24, 9:6; Matthew 19:4; Mark 7:21-23; John 8:42-44; Romans 1:18, 3:10, 23, 5:1, Ephesians 2:1-3)
Salvation: We believe that eternal salvation is available to man by God’s grace alone, through faith, and in and through the sacrificial and finished work of Jesus Christ (death, burial and resurrection) on the cross of Calvary. Salvation is a free gift from God, which is neither earned nor secured by good behavior or good works, but only through personal repentance and faith in the person and work of Christ. All who believe are given eternal life and forever in the presence of God. All who reject the Gospel will be cast into the lake of fire where they will suffer eternal conscious torment away from the presence of God. John 1:11-13, 3:16, 5:24, 10:2830, 14:6; Acts 16:31; Romans 3:23-26,5:8, 6:23, 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5; Hebrews 7:24-25; I Peter 1:1819, I John 5:11-13, Revelation 21-22)
Church: We believe that the Church is comprised of all believers baptized by the Holy Spirit at the moment of salvation and thus born again (regardless of church denomination or religious affiliation). The Church’s mission is to be God’s ambassadors on earth, teach believers God’s truth for living, and to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to all people. The Church’s ordinances are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. (Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 4:10-12; Acts 2:41, 10-47, 1 Corinthians 11:23-29, 12:13)
Second Coming: We believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and that His coming, which is our blessed hope, is always imminent. Upon Christ’s second coming, He will take His saints with Him (the Rapture) and bring His judgments upon the earth (the Great Tribulation), after which He will bring His saints with Him and then establish His kingdom on earth for a thousand years, thus fulfilling all His promises (specifically given to Israel). After the thousand years there will be the great white throne judgment in which all unbelievers will be judged and thrown in the lake of fire. God will then establish a new heaven and a new earth. (John 14:2-3; Romans 14:10-12; I Corinthians 3:11-15, 15:51-53, II Corinthians 5:10; I Thessalonians 4:15-17; Titus 2:11-13;Revelation 3:10, 20-22)
Bible Interpretation (hermeneutics): We believe that the best way to interpret Scripture is by reading, discerning and “rightly dividing” all of its teachings within the context of the whole counsel of God’s Word (exegesis), and through a thorough, literal, grammatical, and historical framework. While (carefully selected) commentaries can be helpful, the Scriptures themselves are the best way to interpret any verse or passage.
It is impossible for unbelievers to correctly interpret Scripture – only Spirit-filled Christians have the capacity to fully understand the Word of God. And it is important that Christians approach God’s Word with humble and surrendered hearts – and by faith, trust that the Holy Spirit will reveal His truth. We believe we must do our very best to be responsible “Bereans” and carefully work through the Scriptures with diligent study, and that it is important to guard ourselves from “private interpretation”, reading something into the text (eisegesis) that it not there, and over spiritualizing passages to justify and/or explain a position or belief that is not aligned with the Bible itself. (Acts 17:11, 20:27, 1 Corinthians 2:14, 2 Timothy 2:15, 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20) es.
