Our Doctrine...a statement of faith

About God

God is Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. (Genesis 1:11:26–273:22Psalm 90:2Matthew 28:191 Peter 1:22 Corinthians 13:14)

About Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus was virgin-born, lived a sinless human life, demonstrated His authority through many miracles, and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to His Father in heaven, and is coming again. He will return someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (Matthew 1:1822–23Isaiah 9:6John 1:1–514:310–30Hebrews 4:14–151 Corinthians 15:34Romans 1:34Acts 1:9–111 Timothy 6:14–15Titus 2:13)

About the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. Scripture teaches that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer enabling them to live the abundant life and display the character of Christ. The Holy Spirit empowers the believer to witness and endows spiritual gifts, the church is built up and those who are searching find eternal life in Christ. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily. (John 16:7–1314:16–17Acts 1:81 Corinthians 2:123:16–1712–14Galatians 5:25Ephesians 1:13–145:18Romans 12)

About People

Man was made in the spiritual image of God to be like Him in character, the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us from birth are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin. Because of sin, all people are under a curse and are in a state of spiritual separation from God. The ultimate result of sin is death. (Genesis 1:27Psalm 8:3–651:5Isaiah 53:6aRomans 3:23Isaiah 59:1–2)

About Eternity

People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. (John 3:16John 14:17Romans 6:23Romans 8:17–18Revelation 20:151 Corinthians 2:7–9)

About Salvation

Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn away from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. Christ alone secures salvation. (Romans 5:16:23Ephesians 2:8–9John 14:61:12Titus 3:5Galatians 3:26John 10:27–28)

About the Security of the Believer

Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security. (John 10:292 Timothy 1:12Hebrews 7:2510:10–111 Peter 1:3–5)

About the Bible

The Bible is God's Word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God it is the Truth without any mixture or error. (2 Timothy 3:162 Peter 1:20–212 Timothy 1:13Psalm 12:6119:105160Proverbs 30:5)

About the Church

Scripture teaches the church is the bride of Christ and the body of Christ. On earth is to fulfill “the Great Commandment” and “the Great Commission.” Therefore, we exist to make disciples of Jesus Christ; to bring people to Jesus and membership in His family—develop them to Christ-like maturity, and equip them for their ministry in the church and their mission in the world in order to magnify God’s name. (Matthew 22:36–4028:18–20Ephesians 2:194:11–16John 17:1–26Acts 1:82:41–4720:24Psalm 34:3122:1)
