Beliefs

1. The Bible
We believe the Bible is the plenary, verbal, inspired Word of God, inerrant, authoritative, and infallible. We believe in a literal interpretation of the Scriptures, and a dispensational understanding of God’s progressive revelation.

2. The Godhead
We believe in one triune God, eternally existing in three divine persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

3. Creation
We believe God created the universe in six literal days.

4. Jesus Christ
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, that he was born of a virgin, and that He died for the sins of the whole world as the perfect Lamb of God. We believe He rose again bodily after his death and burial.

5. The Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit is a divine person, that He draws sinners to repentance, and that He indwells and fills believers.

6. The Spirit World
We believe in the existence of an unseen spirit world, comprised of God’s holy angels and fallen angels which follow Satan.

7. Man
We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and fell from his original state, and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and therefore stand condemned before God.

8. Salvation
We believe that God saves from sin and condemnation those who receive His gift of eternal life, by grace alone, through faith in the atonement of Christ, not earned by good works. We believe in the eternal security of the believer.

9. Sanctification
We believe that all believers are positionally made holy at salvation, but that they must practically depend on the Holy Spirit to enable them to live the Christ-life, apart from sin and worldliness.

10. The Local Church
We believe that a New Testament church is a local body of immersed believers whose purpose is to worship God and advance His spiritual kingdom.

11. Eternal Destiny
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life in heaven and the unsaved to eternal damnation in hell, both of which are literal places.

12. Future Events
We believe in the rapture of the Church, prior to the tribulation, followed by Christ’s second coming and millennial reign on earth.
