What We Believe
In the Bible as the Divinely inspired inerrant Word of God, the revelation of His mind and will to man, our infallible, all-sufficient guide for salvation and for the Christian life (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 deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, that He is true God and true man begotten of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, and that He has a perfect and sinless humanity (John 1:1; Philippians 2:6; Matthew 1:23-25; 1 John 3:5).
In the depravity of the nature of man through his fall in the Garden of Eden, and the absolute inability of man to save himself from eternal punishment by his own works (Genesis 3; Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:8-9).
In the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved to Heaven (1 Thessalonians 4:17), and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost in Hell (Revelation 20:11-15).
In the immediate and eternal salvation of every person who truly believes on Christ and by faith rests on His finished work as the only righteous ground on which a Holy God can forgive sins.
That all who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour are born again by the Holy Spirit, indwelt and sealed by the Holy Spirit, baptized by the Holy Spirit into the Body of Christ, the Church, of which Jesus is the risen and ascended Head. (1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Colossians 1:18).
That water baptism by immersion symbolizes and identifies the believer with the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
That the early Church met together and "continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread, and in prayers" (Acts 2:42), which is also God's pattern for the church today.
In the personal, imminent, and premillennial coming of the Lord in the air to Rapture (catch up) the Church (1 Thessalonians 4:13-17), and
In the revelation of Christ in glory at His Second Advent to the earth to establish His Kingdom on earth and to reign in righteousness.
