OUR BELIEFS

 

1. We believe the Bible was given to man, in the original languages, through divine inspiration, and is the authoritative provision for every area of faith and practice (II Tim. 3:16; I Peter 1:21).

 

2. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Duet. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; II Cor. 13:14; Eph. 4:4-6).

 

3. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man (Luke 1:35; Romans 1:3,4; Phil. 2:6-9).

 

4. We believe that man is saved by grace through faith.  Man is depraved, utterly sinful and his efforts, regardless of how well intended, cannot earn salvation.  Salvation is a free gift made available by the complete payment for sin through Christ's death on the cross (Romans 3:9-12; 3:24-28; 4:1-8; I Cor. 1:18-31; Eph. 2:8-9).

 

5. We believe in the eternal security of the believer (Romans 8:1; 8:29-34; 8:38-39; Eph. 1:13-14; Phil. 1:6).

 

6. We believe that God's grace and forgiveness is available to all.  Furthermore, it is God's earnest desire for everyone to be saved from the penalty of their sins (I Tim. 2:1-4; Titus 2:11; Romans 5:6-21).

 

7. We believe the mission and commission of the Body of Christ is to proclaim the message of reconciliation (II Cor. 5:14-21) and to preach Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery (Rom. 16:25; Eph. 3:8-9).  The "gospel of God" is referred to as "my gospel" by the Apostle to the Gentiles (Rom. 2:16; 16:25).  It is this gospel with which we are entrusted today (I Thess. 2:4).

 

We acknowledge that the above articles of faith do not exhaust the content of our faith which is the entire Word of God.  However, we believe this list distinguishes some basic truths which are commonly disregarded today.

2 Corinthians 5:20


Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
