1. We believe that there is one living and true GOD, eternally existing in three persons: The Father,
the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and
governs all things. (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 44:8 and 48:16; Matthew 28:19-20; John
10:30; Hebrews 1:3).
 

2. We believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully
inspired without error and the infallible rule of faith and practice. The Word of God is the foundation
upon which this church operates and is the basis for which this church is governed. We believe that the
Word of God supersedes any earthly law that is contrary to the Holy Scriptures. We believe that the King
James/New King James Versions of the Bible are the most accurate translations from the original ancient
text. It is from these translations that we establish our doctrine and Statement of Faith. (Isaiah 28:13;
Nehemiah 8:8; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 1:23-25; 2 Peter 1:3-4 and 1:21).

3. We believe in the person of God the Father, an infinite, eternal, personal Spirit, perfect in
holiness, wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He
hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and Hell all those who come to Him through Jesus
Christ. (Deuteronomy 33:27; Psalms 90:2; Psalms 102:27; John 3:16 and 4:24; 1 Timothy 1:17; Titus 1:3).
 
4. We believe in the person of Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit.
We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, his substitutionary atoning death,
bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and personal, visible
return to earth. (Isaiah 7:14; Micah 5:2; Matthew 1:23; Mark 16:19; Luke 1:34-35; John 1:1-2, 8:58 and
11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 1:8; 1 John 1:2; Revelation 1:8).
 
5. We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit, Who came forth from the Father and Son to convict
the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all
who believe in Christ. (Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 3:18; John 16:8-11; Romans 8:26 and 15:13,16; Hebrews
9:14)
 
6. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding
helper, teacher, and guide. (John 6:13, 14:16-17 and 16:8-11; Romans 8:26).
 
7. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all Biblical gifts of the
Spirit according to the instructions given to us in 1 Corinthians 12-14. (1 Corinthians 14)
 
8. We believe that all people are sinners by nature and, therefore, are under condemnation; that
God saves and regenerates based upon faith by the Holy Spirit, those who repent of their sins and
confess Jesus Christ as Lord. (Acts 8:15-17; Ephesians 2:1-3 and 8-9; Romans 3:23 and 5:8; Titus 3:5).
 
9. We believe in the universal church, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the head and all
who are born again are a part of the Body of Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Ephesians 4:15-16)
 
10. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ instituted two ordinances for the church: (a) full
immersion water baptism of believers, and (b) the Lord’s Supper. (Matthew 28:19; Luke 22:19-20; Acts
2:38; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26) We also believe that the Lord Jesus Christ validated the ordinance of
marriage between one man and one woman. (Matthew 19:4-5 and John 2:1-11)
 
11. We believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ which is His personal, visible return to earth
and the establishment of His millennial kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and
eternal blessing of the righteous and endless separation of the wicked. (Matthew 16:27; Acts 1:11;
Revelation 19:11-16, 20:11-15)
 
12. We believe in a literal Heaven and a literal Hell and that all those who place their faith, hope and
trust in Jesus Christ will spend eternity in Heaven with the Lord, while those who reject Jesus’ free gift of
salvation will spend eternity separated from the Lord. (Psalm 9:17; Matthew 5:3, 5:22, 18:9 and 25:31-
34; Mark 9:42-49; Luke 12:5; John 3:18; Hebrews 12:23; 1 Peter 1:4; Revelation 14:10-11 and 20:11-15)
 
13. We believe in the eminent return of Jesus Christ where all believers will meet the Lord in the air
and be taken out of this world prior to the Tribulation that will come upon the earth. We reject the post
tribulation rapture position. (Isaiah 26:20; Matthew 24:29-31; Luke 21:36; Romans 1:18, 5:9; 1
Thessalonians 1:10, 4:13-16 and 5:9; 2 Peter 2:7-9; Revelation 3:10, 5:7-10 and 7:13-14)
 
14. We believe in the creation and God as the Creator. We believe that God created man
and that He created them male and female. As such He created them different so as to complement and
complete each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the
foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason homosexuality, and all
other “sexual preferences” or “orientations” are unnatural, sinful, and unacceptable to God.
Accordingly, this ministry will not perform any marriage ceremonies between two individuals of the
same sex. It will not condone or recognize such same-sex marriages, civil unions, or domestic
partnerships even if the state passes laws that provide for recognition of such unions.
 
We believe that marriage is exclusively the legal union of one genetic male and one genetic
female sanctioned by the state and evidenced by a marriage ceremony. We also believe that legitimate
biblical sexual relations are exercised solely within marriage. Hence, sexual activities such as, but not
limited to, adultery, fornication, pre-marital sex, incest, polygamy, homosexuality, transgenderism,
bisexuality, cross-dressing, pedophilia and bestiality are inconsistent with the teachings of the Bible and
the Church. Further, lascivious behavior, the creation, viewing and/or distribution of pornography and
efforts to alter one’s physical gender or gender related appearance are incompatible with a true biblical
witness. (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6; John 4:16-18; Romans 1:18-32; I Corinthians 5:11, 6:9-11, 6:18-
20, 7:1-3 and 7:8-9; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:3-7; 1 Timothy 1:9-11)
