Beliefs


GOD
We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

JESUS

We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.

Gen 18:1; Psalm 2:7; 110:1; Isa 7:14; 53:1-12; Mat 1:18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 11:27; 14:33; 16:16, 27; Mat 17:5; 27; 28:1-6, 19; Mark 1:1; 3:11; Luke 1:35; 4:41; 22:70; 24:46; John 1:1-18, 29; 10:30, 38; 11:25-27; 12:44-50; John 14:7-11, 16:15-16, 28; 17:1-5, 21-22; 20:1-20, 28; Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56; 9:4-5, 20; Rom 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 5:6-21; 8:1-3, 34; 10:4; 1Co 1:30; 2:2; 8:6; 15:1-8, 24-28; 2Co 5:19-21; Gal 4:4-5; Eph 1:20; 3:11; 4:7-10; Php 2:5-11; Col 1:13-22; 2:9; 1Th 4:14-18; 1Ti 2:5-6; 3:16; Tit 2:13-14; Heb 1:1-3; 4:14-15; 7:14-28; Heb 9:12-15, 24-28; 12:2; 13:8; 1Pe 2:21-25; 3:22; 1Jo 1:7-9; 3:2; 4:14- 15; 5:9; 2Jo 7-9; Rev 1:13-16; 5:9-14; 12:10-11; 13:8; 19:16


CHRIST’S RETURN

We believe that Jesus Christ will literally return to earth.

Isa 2:4; 11:9; Mat 16:27; 18:8-9; Mat 19:28; 24:27, 30, 36, 44; 25:31-46; 26:64; Mark 8:38; 9:43-48; Luke 12:40, 48; 16:19-26; Luke 17:22-37; 21:27-28; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:11; 17:31; Rom 14:10; 1Co 4:5; 1Co 15:24-28, 35-58; 2Co 5:10; Php 3:20-21; Col 1:5; 3:4; 1Th 4:14-18; 5:1; 2Th 1:7; 2:1-17; 1Ti 6:14; 2Ti 4:1, 8; Tit 2:13; Heb 9:27-28; James 5:8; 2Pe 3:7; 1Jo 2:28; 3:2; Jude 14; Rev 1:18; 3:11; 20:1-22:13


HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide Who lives in every believer.

Gen 1:2; Judges 14:6; Job 26:13; Psa 51:11; 139:7; Isa 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Mat 1:18; 3:16; 4:1; 12:28-32; 28:19; Mk 1:10, 12; Luke 1:35; 4:1, 18-19; 11:13; 12:12; 24:49; John 4:24; 14:16-17, 26; 15:26; 16:7-14


BIBLE
We believe that the Holy Bible is the Word of God without any error, the sole authority for life and faith.

Ex 24:4; De 4:1-2; 17:19; Jos 8:34; Psa 19:7-10; 119:11, 89, 105, 140; Isa 34:16; 40:8; Jer 15:16; 36:1-32; Mat 5:17-18; 22:29; Lu 21:33; 24:44-46; Joh 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Ac 2:16; 17:11; Rom 15:4; 16:25-26; 2Ti 3:15-17; Heb 1:1-2; 4:12; 1Pe 1:25; 2Pe 1:19-21


MAN
We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.

Gen 1:26-30; 2:5, 7, 18-22; 3; 9:6; Psa 1:1-6; 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5; Isa 6:5; Jer 17:5; Matt 16:26; Acts 17:26-31; Rom 1:19-32; 3:10-18, 23; 5:6, 12, 19; 6:6; Rom 7:14-25; 8:14-18, 29; 1Co 1:21-31; 15:19, 21-22; Eph 2:1-22; Col 1:21-22; 3:9-11

ASSURANCE
We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.

ETERNITY
We believe that those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in the lake of fire and those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven.

BAPTISM & THE LORD’S SUPPER
We believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.
The Lord’s Supper is also a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.

Mat 3:13-17; 26:26-30; 28:19-20; Mk 1:9-11; 14:22-26; Luke 3:21-22; 22:19-20; John 3:23; Acts 2:41-42; 8:35-39; 16:30-33; 20:7; Rom 6:3-5; 1Co 10:16, 21; 11:23-29; Col 2:12


CHURCH

We believe that the church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.

Mat 16:15-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-42, 47; 5:11-14; 6:3-6; 13:1-3; 14:23, 27; Acts 15:1-30; 16:5; 20:28; Rom 1:7; 1Co 1:2; 3:16; 5:4-5; 7:17; 9:13-14; 12; Eph 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:8-11, 21; 5:22-32; Php 1:1; Col 1:18; 1Ti 3:1-15; 4:14

MISSIONS
We believe that it is our duty and our priviledge to be and support missionaries, prayerfully and financially, of like mind and faith both on foreign mission fields and at home.

Gen 12:1-3; Ex 19:5-6; Isa 6:1-8; Mat 9:37-38; 10:5-15; 13:18-30, 37-43; 16:19; Mat 22:9-10; 24:14; 28:18-20; Luke 10:1-18; 24:46-53; John 14:11-12; 15:7-8, 16; 17:15; 20:21; Acts 1:8; 2; 8:26-40; 10:42-48; 13:2-3; Rom 10:13-15; Eph 3:1-11; 1Th 1:8; 2Ti 4:5; Heb 2:1-3; 11:39-12:2; 1Pe 2:4-10; Rev 22:17
