Doctrinal Statement

  1. We believe that love for one another as Jesus loves the believer and the church, manifests our discipleship, proves our love for God and symbolizes our authority as New Testament churches.  Love is therefore the great commandment of the Lord Jesus Christ upon which all others are dependent. 
  2. (Matthew. 22:35-40, John 13:34-35, John 15:12, 1 John 4:7-21, 1 John 5: 1-3, Revelation 2:4-5

     
  3. We believe in the personal triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, equal in divine perfection (Matthew 28:9) 
  4. We believe in the 6 day Genesis account of creation, as it is written. (Genesis 1 and 2)
  5. We believe that Satan is a fallen angel, the archenemy of God and man, the unholy god of this world, and that his destiny is the eternal lake of fire (Isaiah 14:12-15, Ezekiel 28:11-19, Matthew25:41, 2 Corinthians 4:4, Ephesians 6:10-17, Revelation 20:10) 
  6. We believe in the virgin birth and sinless humanity of Jesus Christ (Matthew 1:18-20, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Peter 2:22) 
  7. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ (John 10:30, John 1:1, John 14:2, 2 Corinthians 5:19) 
  8. We believe the Holy Spirit is the divine administrator for Jesus Christ in His churches (Luke 24:49, John 14:16-17, Acts 1:4, 5 and 8, Acts 2:1-4) 
  9. We believe the miraculous spiritual manifestation gifts were done away when the Bible was completed and the apostles faded from the scene.  Faith, Hope and Love are the vital abiding spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12-14) 
  10. We believe that man was created in the image of God and lived in innocency until he fell by voluntary transgression from his sinless state, the result being that all mankind are sinners (Genesis 1:26, Genesis 3:6-24, Romans 5:12-19) 
  11. We believe the suffering and death of Jesus Christ was substitutionary for all mankind and is efficacious only to those who believe (Isaiah 53:6, Hebrews 2:9, 1 Peter 2:24, 1 Peter 3:18, 2 Peter 3:9, 1 John 2:2) 
  12. We believe in the bodily resurrection and ascension of Christ and the bodily resurrection of His saints (Matthew 28:1-7, Acts 1:9-11, 1 Corinthians 15:42-58, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) 
  13. We believe in the premillennial, personal, bodily return of Christ as the crowning event of the Gentile age.  This event will include the resurrection of the righteous to eternal heaven, and the Millennium will be followed by the resurrection of the unrighteous unto eternal damnation.
