Doctrine

The Trinity

We believe that God the Father, Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit are three separate persons in one; one in essence, attributes and characteristics; co-equal and co-eternal.

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is inerrant and infallible in its original form. We believe that God so directed the writers of Scripture that His complete and coherent Word was transferred to the pages of Scripture in its original form without altering the literary style or personality of the author.

Salvation

We believe that salvation is by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone apart from any form of human works. We believe that Jesus Christ fully paid the penalty for the sins of the human race by His death on the cross. We believe that salvation is freely offered to all mankind and is a matter of a person’s volition to accept or reject God's offering of salvation.

The Church

We believe that the local church’s responsibility is to evangelize unbelievers, to equip believers to enable them to live their Christian lives unto the Lord under the doctrinal concept of the privacy of the priesthood, and to support missionary activity throughout the world.

Man

We believe that the human race is totally depraved and separated from God because of sin. We believe that when Adam fell in the Garden of Eden that sin entered into the world. As a result, the human race is born with a sin nature and its only solution is the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross.

Satan

We believe that Satan is a fallen angel who, in eternity past, rebelled against God. We believe that Satan led this rebellion and took one third of the angels with him. We believe that Satan and his followers were cast out of heaven to the earth. We believe that he accuses the believer before God day and night and goes about the world seeking whom he may destroy. We believe the final fate of Satan and his demons is the Lake of Fire.

God the Father

We believe that God the Father is eternal without a beginning or end. We believe that God the Father is perfect justice and righteousness and must therefore condemn sin. We believe that God the Father is also perfect love and in His love, He sent His uniquely born Son, Jesus Christ, to solve the sin problem by becoming a sacrifice for the sins of the world.

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who left heaven to become a man. We believe that He was born of a virgin without a sin nature. We believe that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life. We believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross as a willing sacrifice for the sins of mankind and after three days in the tomb, rose again, triumphant over death. We believe that Jesus Christ is our Savior and indwells the body of every believer. We believe that one day He will return for His church.

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is fully God. We believe that His ministry to the unbeliever is to draw him to Jesus Christ through His convicting ministry. We believe that His ministry to the believer is to teach and comfort, having sealed us until the day of redemption. We believe the Holy Spirit permanently indwells every believer upon faith in Christ.
