Doctrines/Beliefs
 

God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the Universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. Matthew 28:18, Ephesians 4:6

 Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary by miraculous conception, lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days demonstrating His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory where He is the only Mediator between God and people, and will return again to earth. He will reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Mark 1:1, Luke 1:35, John 1:1, John 10:10, I Timothy 2:5

Mankind

We are made in the image of God, to be like Him in character. We are the supreme object of God's creation. Although we have tremendous potential for good, everyone is marred by an attitude and life of rebellion toward God called sin. Sin separates people from God but God's forgiveness brings them back into relationship with Him. God calls and enables His children to live a dedicated and holy life to Him. Genesis 1:26 & 27, Romans 5, 6:22, I Thessalonians 4:7

 Heaven and Eternity

People are created to exist forever. Every person will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is heaven. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence. Matthew 9:46, Luke 16:23, Revelation 21

 Salvation

Salvation is a gift from God to all people. Men and women can never make up for their sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ and the shedding of His blood on the cross as God's offer of forgiveness can a person be saved from sin's penalty. John 3:17, 5:34, & 10:9, Romans 10:9 & 13

 The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. This power is intensified by the infilling of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily. John 4:24, John 14 & 15, Acts 1:8, Acts 2:4, I Corinthians 14

 
The Word of God, the Bible

The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is God's word to all. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Scriptures are inspired by God, and are infallible and inerrant in the original manuscripts. They are the unique, full and final authority on all matters of faith and practice, and there are no other writings similarly inspired by God. Psalm 138:2, Proverbs 30:5, Matthew 4:4, John 17:17, II Timothy 3:16

 
Faith and Practice

Scripture is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. This church recognizes that it cannot bind the conscience of individual members in areas where Scripture is silent. Rather each believer is to be led in those areas by the Lord, to whom he or she alone is ultimately responsible. II Timothy 3:16, John 10:27, Romans 8:14, Psalm 23
