Doctrinal Statement

1. The Bible, verbally and plenarily inspired, is God's Word; infallible, inerrant, and authoritative in all matters of which it speaks.

 2. There is one God, personal, infinite, perfect, and eternally existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and each person is equal in every divine perfection.

3. The Holy Spirit is a divine person and works in conviction of men and in the regeneration, sanctification, and preservation of the believer.

4. Satan is a fallen, created personality, opposed to all that is holy and is destined to eternal punishment.

5. God directly created the universe from no pre-existing substance. We reject both naturalistic and theistic evolution.

6. Man was made in God's own image and fell into sin in Adam and is now a sinner both by nature and choice, and can be restored to God's favor only by God's provision in Christ as applied by the Holy Spirit.

7. Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit, was born by the Virgin Mary, and He is true God and true man.

8. Salvation comes to man only by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, apart from any human merit through his substitutionary atoning sacrifice.

9. Jesus Christ rose bodily from the grave, ascended into heaven, and daily intercedes on our behalf as our High Priest.

10. In order to be saved, sinners must experience a new spiritual birth wrought by a sovereign God through the power of his Word and the ministry of the Holy Spirit. This birth is instantaneous and not a process, and is evidenced by newness of life.

11. Justification is an act of God in which He declares the believer to be righteous on the bases of faith in Christ and the imputation of Christ's righteousness to the believing sinner.

12. Sanctification is the setting apart of a believer unto God as His purchased possession through the work of the Holy Spirit and the power of His Word.

13. Every believer is eternally secure, being 'kept by the power of God.'

14. All those who have experienced salvation are members of the church which is His body and thus are eligible for baptism & membership in the local church. Jesus Christ is the Head of the church & every local church has the right under Christ to govern itself.

15. Baptism by immersion and the Lord's supper are ordinances of the church.

16. The Bible commands believers to be separated unto God and to be separated from worldliness and ecclesiastical apostasy.

17. Civil goverment  exists by Divine appointment, and separation between it and the church should be maintained.

18. Isreal is God's covenant people now dispersed because of unbelief but yet to be regathered and saved as a nation at the Second Advent of Christ.

19.  The return of Christ includes both the Rapture of the church and His return in glory. The first is for His church which is personal, pretribulational, premillenial  and may occur at any moment. The second is His return to earth to establish His righteous reign over the earth. The coming is visible, personal, premillenial and in power and great glory.

20. All persons will experience resurrection, believers to a state of eternal felicity and unbelievers to eternal punishment.
