What We Believe
We believe that the Bible is the inerrant, inspired Word of God. It is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice. For reasons of unity within the church and textual reliability, we choose to use the King James Version of the Bible.
1 Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21
We believe that Jesus Christ, eternally existing, is the only begotten Son of God, who became a sinless man in order to redeem us. He was born of a virgin and is fully God and fully man.
Luke 1:30-55; John 1:1-15; Philippians 2:5-8; Colossians 1:15
We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell through sin, bringing not only physical death, but also spiritual death or eternal separation from God. Now all of man kind exists as a fallen race, with an inherited sinful nature.
Genesis 1:26-27; 2:16; 3:10-23; Romans 3:10-23; 6:23
We believe that Jesus suffered and died as the payment for the sins of the whole world. He physically arose from the dead and then ascended into Heaven. Simple faith in this sacrifice is the only way for mankind to be saved from the judgment to come.
Luke 24; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 5:8-10; Ephesians 1:20-23; 1 Peter 3:18
We believe that Christ has called every member in the local church (an assembled body of believers) to tell others about the Savior, Jesus Christ.
Mark 16:15; 1 Corinthians 12:12; Ephesians 1:22-23
We believe that Jesus Christ will soon come again in the air to claim His people and to reward their services. Unbelievers left behind will go through a period called the Tribulation. After this, Christ will return to the earth to set up His Kingdom of one thousand years of righteous rule. All of this will climax when the unbelievers of all ages will stand at the Great White Throne to be Judged and cast into the Lake of Fire, separated from God forever, while the believers spend eternity in the fullness of joy in Heaven with the Lord.
Matthew 24:29-42; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; Revelation 19:11-20:13
