OUR BELIEFS

THE BIBLE

 

We believe the Holy Scriptures are the inspired Word of God.  They are the final authority for faith and life.  We adhere to the King James Version of the Bible.

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness..."

2 Timothy 3:16

 

GOD

 

We believe in one triune God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Each is co-eternal, co-identical, and co-equal.

"The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost,

be with you all. Amen."

2 Corinthians 13:14

 

JESUS CHRIST

 

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem mankind through his death on the cross and resurrection from the dead.

"Christ Jesus:... Who, being in the form of God,

… made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and... humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross."

Philippians 2:5-8

HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin and righteousness, that He is the divine Teacher who assists believers to understand the Scriptures, and that He bestows spiritual gifts to every believer.

"Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit...  But the manifestation of the Spirit is given

to every man to profit withal."

1 Corinthians 12:4-7

SALVATION

We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  We believe that all sins, except blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, are forgivable.

"For by grace are ye saved through faith;

and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God..."

Ephesians 2:8

 

ETERNITY

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment.

"Jesus said unto her,

I am the resurrection, and the life:

he that believeth in me, though he were dead,

yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and

believeth in me shall never die."

John 11:25-26
