What We Believe

Articles of Faith

I.  We believe in the Divine verbal inspiration, integrity, finality, and sole-sufficiency of the Bible as the Word of God.

II.  We believe in the Holy Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – three persons co-equal in substance, power, and eternity in the unity of the Godhead.

III. We believe that God created man in His own image; placed him in innocence in the garden; and that by voluntary transgression, man fell, becoming totally depraved; thus, transmitting to all mankind both physical and spiritual death.

IV.  We believe that the Godhead executes distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.

1. The love and grace of the Father.

2. The Redemption of the Son.

a. His Incarnation, Virgin Birth, Sinless nature and Life, and His Infallibility as Teacher.

b. His substitutionary and atoning death by the shedding of His blood on the cross.

c. His bodily resurrection – actual and real; His ascension into Heaven; His High Priestly work there. d. His premillenial second coming. This to be in two phases; first in the clouds to catch away His bride, the true Church to meet Him in the air; second, to the earth with His saints, in power and great glory for the Millennial reign.

3. Regeneration or the New Birth by the Holy spirit, and His indwelling of every believer.

V.  We believe that Salvation and Justification of sinners is wholly of grace through faith in the finished work of Christ.

VI.  We believe in the Sanctification of believers: first, having been sanctified by the offering of the body of Christ once for all; second, being sanctified by the Holy Spirit and the Word; third, to be sanctified and glorified at the coming of Christ.

VII.  We believe that those who come to God through Christ are given eternal life and shall never perish, as is the promise of His Word.

IX.  We believe in the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper; the fruit of the vine signifying His shed blood, the broken bread signifying His broken body, showing forth His death till He comes: this being the duty and privilege of every believer.

X.  We believe that the first day of the week, Sunday, is the Lord’s Day, commemorating the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

XI.  We believe in the Resurrection of the body, both of the just and the unjust; the just at the coming of our Lord; and the unjust at the close of the Millennium; and the final judgment and eternal punishment of the wicked.
