We believe that the Bible is the divinely inspired and inerrant Word
of God, that it is the revelation of God's
mind and will to man, in its infallibility and all-sufficiency for salvation,
and all aspects of the Christian life and testimony (2 Timothy 3:16-17;
2 Peter 1:20-21).
In one God, the Creator of all, eternally existing in three persons:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In the sovereignty of God, and in the free
will of man to accept or reject the gospel of Christ. (2 Thessalonians
In the full deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, that He is true God and
true Man, begotten of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin as the perfect
and sinless Man. (John 1:1; Philippians 2:6; Matthew 1:23-25; 1 John 3:5).
In the depravity of man through the fall in the Garden of Eden, humanity
being tempted and deceived by Satan. Man is unrighteous and sinful in nature
(Romans 5:12-19; 3:10-12)
In man's inability to save himself from eternal punishment by self-righteousness
or good works (Genesis 3; Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:8-9).
In the finished work of Christ on the cross of Calvary, through which
Christ offered Himself as a sacrifice and accomplished complete and eternal
redemption for man (Romans 3:24; Ephesians 1:7). God raised Christ bodily
from the dead and seated Him at His own right hand in Heaven as a proof
of God's acceptance of Christ's sacrifice.
In the bodily resurrection of believers and unbelievers, the everlasting
blessedness of the saved (1 Thessalonians 4:17), and the everlasting, conscious
punishment of the lost (Revelation 20:15).
In the formation of the Church on the Day of Pentecost and Christ is
the only Head of the Church (Ephesians 1:20-23; Colossians 1:18). He is
the Lord of the individual (John 13:13), the High Priest over the House
of God (Hebrews 7:20-28; 10:21), the Advocate on behalf of His people (1
John 2:1), and the Judge of all (Acts 17:31).
In the instantaneous and eternal salvation of every person who truly
believes on Christ, and places their faith upon the finished work of Christ
as the only ground on which a holy God can forgive sins.
In the two ordinances of Christ, which are water baptisms by immersion
and observance of the Lord's Supper, and that all believers are to faithfully
obey them (Acts 8:36-39; 1 Corinthians 11:23-34).
That all who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior are instantly
born again of the Holy Spirit, indwelt by Him, and by the same Holy Spirit
are baptized into the one Body of Christ the Church (1 Corinthians 12:12-14).
That the Church today meets together and continues steadfastly in the
Apostle's doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers
In the personal, imminent, and premillennial coming of the Lord Jesus
to the air to receive the Church (1 Thessalonians 4:13-17).
In the second coming of the Lord Jesus in glory, to literally establish
His kingdom on earth and to reign in righteousness (2 Thessalonians 1:6-10),
thereafter shall be the Great White Throne judgment in the heavens for
the judgment of "the dead, small and great" (Revelation 20:15), finally
the present heavens and earth will pass away and a new heaven and earth
will be formed wherein righteousness shall dwell and the eternal Sabbath
shall begin (2 Peter 3:10-13).
