Our Beliefs

(A) The Holy Scriptures

We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally and plenary inspired words of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible and God-breathed, and therefore are the final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments are the complete and divine revelation of God to man. The Scriptures shall be interpreted according to their normal grammatical-historical meaning (2nd Timothy 3:16, 2nd Peter 1:20-21).

We further believe that the King James Version of the Bible is the preserved word of God for the English speaking people, and it is the official and only translation used or believed by the Church.

(B) Dispensationalism

We believe that the Scriptures interpreted in their natural, literal sense reveal divinely determined dispensations or rules of life which define man’s responsibilities in successive ages. These dispensations are not ways of salvation, but rather are divinely ordered stewardships by which God directs man according to His purpose. Three of these dispensations-the age of Law, the age of the Church, and the age of the Kingdom, are the subjects of detailed revelation in Scripture (Gen 1:28, 1st Cor. 9:17, 2nd Cor. 3:9-18, Galatians 3:13-25, Ephesians 1:10, Ephesians 3:2-10, Col. 1:24-27, Revelation 20:2-6)

(C) The Godhead

We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons –Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections (Deut. 6:4, Matthew 28:19, 2nd Cor. 13:14, John 14:10, John 14:26, 1st John 5:7)

(D) The Person and Work of Christ

(1) 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 Sinful men (Isa. 7:14, Isa. 9:6, Luke 1:35, John 1:1-2, John 1:14, 2nd Cor. 5:19-21, Galatians 4:4-5, Phil. 2:5-8)

(2) We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary Blood Atonement; and, that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead (Acts 2:18, Romans 3:24-25, 1st Peter 2:24, Ephesians 1:7, Col. 1:13-14)

(3) We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, intercessor, and Advocate (Acts 1:9-10, Hebrews 9:24, Hebrews 7:25, Romans 8:34,1st John 2:1-2)

(E) The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of Sin, righteousness, and of judgment; and, that He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption (John 16:8-11, Romans 8:9, 1st Cor. 12:12-14, 2nd Cor. 3:6, Ephesians 1:13-14)

(F) The Depravity of Man

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam’s sin the human race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and, that man is depraved, and, of himself, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition (Genesis 1:26-27, Romans 3:22-23, Romans 5:12, Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:1-3, Ephesians 4:17-19)

(G) 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, Whose precious blood was shed at Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. (John 1:12, Ephesians 1:7, Ephesians 2:8-10, 1st Peter 1:18-19)

(H) The Eternal Security and Assurance of Believers

We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever (John 6:37-40, John 10:27-30, Romans 8:1, Romans 8:38-39, 1st Cor. 1:4-8, 1st Peter 1:4-5, Ephesians 4:30, John 5:24)

(I) The Church

We believe that the church, which is the body and the espoused bride of Christ, is solely made up of born-again persons (1st Cor. 12:12-14, 2nd Cor. 11:2, Ephesians 1:22-23, Ephesians 5:25-27)

(J) The Second Coming of Christ

We believe in that “blessed hope,” the personal, imminent return of Christ Who will call out His Church prior to the seven–year Tribulation Period. At the end of the Tribulation, Christ will personally and visibly return, with His saints, to establish His earthly Messianic Kingdom which was promised to the Nation of Israel (Psalm 89:3-4, Daniel 2:31-45, Zech. 14:4-11, 1st Thess. 1:10, 1st Thess. 4:13-18, Titus 2:13, Rev. 3:10, Rev. 19:11-16, Rev 20:1-6)

(K) The Eternal State

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment. (Matthew 25:46, John 5:28-29, John 11:25-26, Rev. 20:5-6, Rev. 20:12-13)

(L) The Personality of Satan

We believe that Satan is a literal and living entity, the author of sin and the cause of the Fall of Man; that he is the open and declared enemy of God and man; and, that he shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire. (Job 1:6-7, Isa. 14:12-17, Matthew 4:2-11, Matthew 25:41, Revelation 20:10)

(M) Creation

We believe in the literal Genesis account of creation. We reject evolution, the Day–Age Theory , and Theistic Evolution as unscriptural theories of origin (Genesis 1:1-2, Exodus 20:11. Mark 10:6, Mark 13:19)
