WE BELIEVE IN 7 CORE TRUTHS
1) The Bible: The only time tested inspired Word of God.
The Scriptures, both Old and New Testament, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man – the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thess 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21)
2) God: The One True God
The One True God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent “I AM”, the Creator of the heavens and earth, the Redeemer of mankind. He has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deut 6:4; Isaiah 43:10,11; Matt 28:19; Luke 3:22)
3) Jesus: The only Son of God, Savior, and Soon Coming King
The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare His: Virgin Birth(Matt 1:23, Luke 1:31,35); Sinless Life (Hebrews 7:26, 1 Peter 2:22); Miracles (Acts 2:22; 10:38); Substitutionary Work on the Cross (1 Cor. 15:3; 2 Cor 5:21); Bodily Resurrection from the Dead (Matt 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Cor 15:4); Exaltation to the Right Hand of God (Acts 1:9,11;2:33; Phil 2:9,11; Hebrews 1:3); and His Personal and Imminent Return, and Millennial Reign (1 Thess 4:16-17, Rev 19:11-14; 20:1-6).
4) The Holy Spirit: Third Person of the Trinity & Giver of Supernatural Gifts
The Holy Spirit is the person of the Godhead who indwells, baptizes, and gives supernatural gifts to all believers for empowerment to witness and serve. His present work is the same as that in the New Testament. (Acts 1:4-8; 2:4; 1 Cor 12:1-31)
5) Mankind: A sinful nature, In need of Salvation and Sanctification
Mankind was created good and upright, but by voluntary disobedience, fell into sin and thereby incurred physical and spiritual death, which is separation from God. (Genesis 1:26,27; 2:17; 3:6; Romans 5:12-19) Mankind’s only hope of salvation is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ – giving us forgiveness of sin, eternal life, and power to live separated from evil through a regenerated heart. (John 3:!6; 6:44; Romans 10:9-10)
6) The Church: Every Believer, The Body of Christ
The church is to carry out the work of Christ in this world, equip people for ministry, and maintain the ordinances of the church – Water Baptism and Communion. (Mark 16:15-16; 1 Cor 11:26; Eph 4:11-16)
7) Our Future: Our Heavenly Home
Death for the believer is not an event to be feared, but a promotion to anticipate. Jesus is currently preparing an eternal home for all who know Him – so that they may live with Him forever. (1Thess 4:16; Rom 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Cor 15:51,52; Rev 21-22)
