We believe in the Holy Scriptures, as contained in the Old and New Testament, to be the verbally inspired Word and Revelation of God, inerrant, infallible and God breathed. We also believe that the King James Authorized Version of the Holy Bible is the preserved and inspired Word of God for English speaking people.
(Psalm 19:7-11; II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:16-21; Luke 24:13-28; John 16:12-16; Jonah 1:1)
II. GENESIS ACCOUNT OF CREATION:
We believe in the Genesis account of creation, and that it is to be accepted literally, and not allegorically or figuratively; that man was created directly in God’s own image and after his own likeness; that man’s creation was not a matter of evolution or evolutionary change of species, or development through interminable periods of time from lower to higher forms; that all animal and vegetable life was made directly and God’s established law was, they should bring forth only “after their kind.”
(Genesis 1:1; Hebrews 11:3; Revelation 10:6; Romans 1:20; Genesis 1:26-27)
III. DIETY AND VIRGIN BIRTH:
We believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, His Virgin Birth, that He is the incarnate Son of God, the second person in the blessed Trinity, Very God of Very God, for Whom and by Whom all things were created. John 1:1-14; 14:9; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; John 10:36. Man is not an evolved beast, but a fallen creation. Genesis 1:26, 27; 2:7. He can only be re-created in righteousness in Jesus Christ.
(II Corinthians 5:17; Titus 3:4-5; John 1:12, 13)
IV. THE HOLY SPIRIT:
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person; equal with God the Father and God the Son and of the same nature; that was active in the creation; that in His relation to the unbelieving world He restrains the Evil one until God’s purpose is fulfilled; that He convicts sin, of judgment and of righteousness; that He bears witness to the Truth of the Gospel in preaching and testimony; that He is the age in the New Birth; that He seals, endues, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies and helps the believer.
(John 14:16-17; Romans 8:14,16)
V. THE TRINITY:
We believe in the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit – three persons
(I John 5:1-8). The Holy Spirit is the infallible interpreter of the infallible Scriptures (John 16:7-15)
VI. BLOOD ATONEMENT:
We believe in the substitutionary atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ; that He, by the grace of God, tested death for every man, and that all must be born again or are forever lost.
(Hebrews 2:9; John 6:44-69; 3:1-18; Romans 3:25; Revelation 1:5; Hebrews 9:22, I Peter 1:254-554-2920
We believe in the bodily resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and that He ascended bodily into the Heavens, and is at the right hand of God as our Mediator, Priest, and Advocate.
(Acts 3:12-26; John 20; Hebrews 9:24; I Corinthians 15: 254-554-2920
VIII. JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH:
We believe that man is justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
(Romans 5:1; Acts 13:39; Titus 3:5-7)
IX. ETERNAL SECURITY:
We believe in the eternal security of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
X. SECOND COMING:
We believe in the kingship of Jesus Christ and in this blessed hope, the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, for those who are fallen asleep in Christ, and for His living saints.
(I Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Corinthians 15:50-55; Acts 1:11; Titus 2:13; Revelations 11:15; 19:11-21; 1 Thessalonians 9-10)
