What We Believe

We believe in the plenary, verbal inspiration of the accepted Canon of the Scriptures as originally given and believe that they are infallibly and uniquely authoritative and free from error of any sort in all matters with which they deal, scientific and historical as well as moral and theological (II Timothy 3:16; I Corinthians 2:13).

 

We believe in the Eternal Godhead who has revealed Himself as ONE God existing in THREE persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; distinguishable but indivisible (Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14).

 

We believe in the literal, special creation of the existing space-time universe and all of its basic systems as indicated in the book of Genesis.

 

We believe in the full historicity and perspicuity of the biblical record of primeval history, including the literal existence of Adam and Eve as the progenitors of all people, the literal fall and resultant divine curse on the Creation, a worldwide cataclysmic deluge, and the origin of nations and languages at the tower of Babel (Genesis 1-11).

 

We believe in the creation, test, and fall of man as recorded in Genesis and in mankind’s total spiritual depravity and inability to attain to divine righteousness apart from God’s intervening grace (Romans 5:12, 18).

 

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, very God and very man (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:18; Isaiah 7:14; 9:6).

 

We believe Christ died for our sins, was buried, rose again the third day, and personally appeared to His disciples (I Corinthians 15:1-8; Romans 4:25).

 

We believe in the bodily ascension of Jesus to heaven, His exaltation, and in His personal literal and bodily coming again the second time (John 14:2-3; I Thessalonians 4:13-18).

 

We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of Christ on the Cross, by which we obtain remission of sins (Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9:12, 22; Romans 5:11).

 

We believe in the necessity of water baptism by immersion in the name of the Eternal Godhead in order to fulfill the command of Christ (Matthew
