The Bible is the inspired, inerrant (in its original manuscripts), and authoritative Word of God. We believe the Bible is the final authority in all issues of faith and morality for every individual Christian, as well as for the church collectively, and we submit ourselves to God’s authority on all such issues. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:21, John 10:35)
We believe there is one God who eternally exists as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that all things were created by Him and for Him. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 45:21-22, Matthew 28:19, Colossians 1:16)
We believe that God the Son became a human being in the person of Jesus Christ. That He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life (for He was without sin), died a substitutionary death for all mankind, was raised from the dead the third day, ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God until His enemies are made His footstool. (John 1:1, 14, Matthew 1:18-25, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Peter 3:18, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Hebrews 10:12-13)
We believe the Holy Spirit was sent by the Father and the Son to convict believers of sin and to guide in righteousness. We believe the Holy Spirit regenerates, indwells, and seals believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that He empowers them to live as His witnesses. (John 14:16-17, John 16:7-11, Titus 3:5-6, Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Ephesians 1:13-14, Acts 1:8, Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12-14, 1 Peter 4:10-11)
We believe that God created human beings, male and female, in His own image. He created them sinless, equal in value, dignity, and worth. (Genesis 1:26-28, Ephesians 5:22-6:4, 1 Timothy 3:1-7) We further believe God created the gift of sexual intercourse to be only allowed between one man and one woman in the bounds of marriage. We further agree that God, in His perfection, is the only one who assigns us a gender or sexual identity.
We believe that, as a result of Adam & Eve’s fall, all people are sinners by nature and in need of a Savior, and that Jesus Christ is the one and only Savior of the world. We believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ, but faith without works is dead. We believe God has made Himself manifest in this world so that none are without excuse. (Romans 3:10, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:18-19, Matthew 1:21, 1 John 4:14, John 14:6, Acts 4:12, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 10:9)
We believe there is one church, the body of Christ, consisting of men and women from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation. We believe that each local congregation is an expression of that universal church. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 4:4, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Revelation 5:9, Acts 2:42-47)
We believe in the resurrection of the dead. Believers will be raised to life and unbelievers to shame and everlasting contempt (hell). (Daniel 12:2, John 5:25-29, Revelation 21:1-22:5)
We are Young Earth Creationists: We believe God created all that exists in 6 days, spending the 7th day in rest. We believe the Words of God in Genesis to be true and accurate literal descriptions of what God did in Creation. (Genesis 1)
We are Continuationists: We believe that all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in Scripture including but not limited to prophesy, healing, tongues, discernment of spirits and teaching are available to and active in His church today. (John 14:16-17, John 16:7-11, Titus 3:5-6, Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Ephesians 1:13-14, Acts 1:8, Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12-14, 1 Peter 4:10-11)
We are Egalitaian: We believe that God created human beings, male and female, in His own image. He created them sinless, equal in value, dignity, and worth. According to His purpose and design, God created male and female to fulfill distinct but complementary roles in the contexts of marriage, family, and the local church. We believe that women may teach and serve as pastors. (Genesis 1:26-28, Ephesians 5:22-6:4, 1 Timothy 3:1-7).
We are Premillennial: We believe in the pre-millennial return of Christ to the earth, to sit upon the throne of David and rule over the house of Jacob (Israel), and the entire cosmos, forever. (Revelation 20:1-6, Luke 1:31-33, Isaiah 9:6-7)
