PREAMBLE

 

Doctrine

 

We believe (1) in God and that He is the personal, (2) transcendent, (3) eternal, (4) sovereign Creator of all things. We believe (5) He alone is God, (6) He is the first and last, there is no other.

(1) Genesis 1:1, (2) Romans 11:33-36, (3) Isaiah 57:15, (4) Psalm 115:3,  (5) Isaiah 43:10, (6) Revelation 22:13

 

We believe that God is (1) eternally self existent and has revealed Himself as a (2) Tri-unity of three persons: (3) Father, Son and Holy Spirit, as three persons in the (4) Godhead and yet one Lord God Almighty.

(1) Exodus 3:14, (2)  Matthew 28:19, (3) 1 John 5:7, (4) Colossians 2:8-9

 

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, He is the (1) only begotten Son of God, He Himself is (2) God (3) incarnate and in Him the fullness of the (4) Godhead is revealed to man. Therefore, He is appropriately called God the Son.

(1) John 3:16, (2) Isaiah 7:14  Matthew 1:23 John 1:1 (3)  1 Timothy 3:16  John 1:14,

(4) Colossians 2:9

 

We believe in the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments. We believe it is the (1) inspired, inerrant, authoritative, Word of God. The Bible is sufficient in and of itself to provide us with (2) all that pertains to life and Godliness.

(1) 2 Timothy 3:16,  2 Peter 1:20-21 (2) 2 Peter 1:2-3

 

We believe that Jesus Christ is the only Savior and that all who wish to come to God must (1) come through Him. Therefore, (2) any and all who reject Jesus as both Lord and Christ have no possibility of acceptance by God the Father.

(1) John 14:6, (2) 1 John 2:22-23

 

We believe that  (1) Jesus Christ came in the flesh as both God and man. He never ceased being God and yet in His humanity was fully man. (1) Philippians 2:5-11

Jesus Christ was (1) born of a virgin, (2) lived a sinless life, (3) worked miracles, (4) provided for the atonement of our sins by His vicarious death on the cross, after three days and three nights in the grave was physically  (5) raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit, (6) ministered to and (7) commissioned His disciples, (6) ascended bodily back to the right hand of the Father and (8) ever lives to make intercession for us.

(1) Isaiah 7:14  Matthew 1:23, (2) 1 Peter 2:21-22  Hebrews 7:26-27,  (3) Acts 2:22,

(4) 2 Corinthians 5:20-21, (5) 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, (6) Acts 1:2-11, (7) Matthew 28:18-20, (8) Romans 8:34, Hebrews 7:25

 

We believe that after Jesus ascended to heaven (1) He poured out His Holy Spirit upon the believers: His Church, at which time they were empowered to live a godly life and fulfill His command to preach the Gospel to the entire world, an obligation shared by all believers today.

(1) Acts 1:8-2:4

 

We believe in the present work of the Holy Spirit in the world today.  Jesus said: (1) “when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.”   (1) John 16:7-8

He works in (1) regeneration, (2) sealing the believer unto the day of redemption, (3) teaching, (4) empowering for service and guiding the believer into (5) maturity and fruitfulness.

(1) Titus 3:5, (2) Ephesians 1:13-14, (3)  John 14:26   1 John 2:27, (4) Acts 1:8, (5) Galatians 5:22-25

 

We believe in the (1) gifts of the Holy Spirit and their operation in the Church today. We believe the purpose of these gifts is to edify the body of Christ: His Church, to equip us for the ministry and above all to glorify Christ.

 

We believe these gifts are to be disciplined as prescribed by the scriptures, should never be used to draw attention to or to glorify man, should be practiced in a decent and orderly fashion, and must always be operational in a spirit of love.

(1) 1 Corinthians 12-14

 

We believe that all people are by nature (1) sinful, (2) separated from God and (3) responsible for their own sin. We believe that man in and of himself has (4) nothing to offer God in exchange for his soul and will (5) spend eternity in hell should he reject the provisions provided for him in Jesus Christ our Lord. (6) Salvation: (6a) redemption, (6b) justification,(6c) forgiveness and (6d) sanctification, are  (7) freely offered (8) to all (9) through the grace of God by faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. (1) Romans 3:10-23, (2) Isaiah 59:1-4,  (3) Ezekiel 18:20-23, (4) Matthew 16:25-26, (5) Matthew 10:28, Revelation 20:12-15, (6) Romans 1:16 (6a) Ephesians 1:7 (6b) Romans 4:25-5:1 (6c) Colossians 1:14 (6d) Hebrews 10:10 (7) 1 Corinthians 2:12, Revelation 21:6  (8) John 3:16, Titus 2:11  (9) Ephesians 2:8-9

 

When a person (1) repents of sin and (2) makes Jesus Christ the Lord of their life, (3) recognizing His as Savior, (4) trusting in His finished work; that person is immediately (5) born again and (6) sealed by the Holy Spirit, (7) all sins are forgiven and (8) becomes a child of God (9) destined to spend eternity with the Lord.(1) Mark 1:14-15, Luke 24:46-48, Acts 3:19 (2) Philippians 2:10-11, Matthew 7:21-27 (3) Isaiah 45:21-22, 1 John 4:13-15 (4) John 19:30,Hebrews 10:1-14, Colossians 2:8-10 (5) John 3:1-8, 1 Peter 1:18-23, 1 John 5:1-5 (6) Ephesians 1:1-14 (7) Colossians 2:10-13, Isaiah 55:7, 1 John 1:9 (8) John 1:12-13, 1 John 3:1-3 (9) John 3:16-17 & 36, John 14:1-4

 

We believe that (1) salvation is offered by grace through faith alone. Salvation is not of ourselves, it is a gift of God, not granted by any human merit or offering of good works. (2) Any offering of salvation granted by human achievement, be it all or in part, is not the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and should be rejected as heresy. (1)Ephesians 2:8-9 (2) Galatians 1:3-9 & 2:16-3:14

 

We believe obedience to the Lord follows true conversion. A life of personal  holiness is to be the experience of all believers. 1 John 3:3-10, 1 Peter 1:13-16, Ephesians 2:10

 

We believe in the ordinance of (1) baptism in water by immersion, a public expression of our faith and identification in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

(1) Matthew 28:19-20

Note: We do not believe in baptismal regeneration. 1 Peter 3:21

 

We believe in the ordinance of communion. The Lord’s supper, consisting in the elements of bread and wine, representing the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. This serves as a memorial to His suffering and death, is a prophesy concerning His second coming and is to be enjoyed by all believers until He comes. (1) 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
