Doctrinal Statement

We believe...

  • In the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Old and New Testaments.
  • In the preservation of God’s Word through the Hebrew Masoretic Text and the Greek Textus Receptus.
  • That the King James Version is the best English translation of the Bible.
  • In God in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • That God created the world in six literal twenty-four hour days.
  • That all mankind is sinful, in need of salvation, and unable to save himself.
  • That Christ died for the sins of all mankind and that salvation is by grace, through faith alone, based upon the finished work of Christ on the cross.
  • In the bodily resurrection of Christ and His bodily ascension into heaven, where He now intercedes for believers.
  • In the reality of Heaven and Hell.
  • That man was created as a responsible being and as such, he may choose to accept or resist the grace of God.
  • In the eternal security of the believer.
  • That the local church is God’s institution to carry out the Great Commission.
  • That the two ordinances of the local church are baptism by immersion for believers only and the Lord’s Supper as a memorial.
  • In the pretribulational rapture of all believers.
  • In the premillennial return and millennial reign of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • In the judgment of believers at the Judgment Seat of Christ and the judgment of unbelievers at the Great White Throne.
  • In the obligation of every believer to live a holy life and to witness to the lost of the saving power of Christ.
  • That God is sovereign in the bestowment of all His gifts, and that the gifts of evangelists and pastor-teachers are sufficient for the perfecting of the saints for today.
  • That speaking in tongues and the working of sign miracles gradually ceased as the New Testament Scriptures were completed and their authority became established.
  • That the extremes of Calvinism and Arminianism are both unbiblical.
  • That all forms of compromise with liberalism, ecumenicism, neo-evangelicalism, or the charismatic movement should be avoided by those who wish to live in obedience to God.
