What We Believe According to Scripture
What We Believe
We believe that "all Scripture is given by inspiration of God" (2 Timothy 3:16). We understand this to mean that the whole Bible is inspired, as that holy men of God "were moved by the Holy Spirit" (2 Peter 1:21) to write the very words of Scripture. We believe that this divine inspiration extends equally and fully to all parts of Scripture as it appeared in the original manuscripts. We believe that the whole Bible in those original manuscripts is, therefore, without error.
We believe that all Scripture centers around the Lord Jesus Christ in His person, work, and in His first and second coming. Therefore, no portion of the Old Testament is properly read or understood until it leads to Christ. We also believe that all Scripture was designed for our practical instruction. (Luke 24:27, 44; John 5:39; Romans 15:4; 1 Corinthians 10:11; 2 Timothy 3:16)
The Triune Godhead:
We believe in the one
true and living God, the Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer, and Ruler of all things.
He is infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, and is revealed to us as the Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit.
God the Father:
God, as Father, reigns over all of His universe with providential care. He is all-powerful, all-loving, all-knowing, and all-wise. He is fatherly in attitude toward all men but is Father, indeed, to those who have become children of God through Jesus Christ, who will deliver them into the Father's hands. (Genesis 1:1; 1 Chronicles 29:10; Jeremiah 10:10; Matthew 6:9; Acts 1:7; Romans 8:14-15; 1 Corinthians 8:6;1 Corinthians 15: 24; Ephesians 4:6)
God the Son:
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man. He accomplished this redemption by voluntarily giving Himself as a sinless, substitutionary sacrifice on the cross, thereby satisfying God's righteous judgment against sin.
substantiating the accomplishment of that redemption and justification by His
bodily resurrection from the grave, He ascended to the right hand of His
Father, where He intercedes on behalf of those who trust Him. (Luke 1:34-35; John 1:1, 2, 14, 18; Romans
3:24-26; Romans 8:3)
God the Holy Spirit:
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Divine Person who convicts the world of sin (righteousness and judgment); that He alone brings new life to those who are spiritually dead; that He baptizes (or places) all believers into the one true Church, which is the Body of Christ; that He indwells them permanently, seals them unto the day of final redemption, bestows spiritual gifts upon them, and fills (controls) those who are yielding to Him.
Every believer is called to live in the power of
the indwelling Holy Spirit so that he will not fulfill the lust of the flesh
but will bear fruit to the glory of God. (John
3:3-8; 14:16-17; 16:7-11; 1 Corinthians 12:7-11, 13; Ephesians 4:30; 5:18)
Creation: We believe that man was created directly by and in the image of God. We believe that God created the heavens and the earth, including all life, by direct act. (Genesis 1:1; John 1:3; Colossians 1:16-17)
Although man was created in the image of God, he fell into sin and is lost. This is true of all men; and except a man be born again by the Holy Spirit, he cannot see the kingdom of God. (Genesis 1:26-27; John 3:3; Romans 3:10, 23)
Satan: We believe that Satan is real, inspires sin as evil incarnate, initiated the fall of man, and is destined to the judgment of an eternal punishment in the lake of fire. (Matthew 4:1-3; Acts 5:3; 2 Corinthians 4:4;Revelation 20:10)
Atonement For Sin:
We believe that the
Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a
sacrifice and that all who Believe in there Heart and confesses with their mouth calling on Him are redeemed by His
shed blood. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord
Jesus Christ and in His ascension into heaven; He is our High Priest and
Advocate. (John 1:1-3, 14; 3:1-7;
Hebrews 10:4-14; 1 John 2:2)
We believe that
salvation is the gift of God's grace. It cannot be gained or made more secure
by meritorious works, but is freely bestowed upon all who put their faith in
the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary. All who so trust the Savior are
forgiven of their sins and born into the family of God by the regenerating work
of the Holy Spirit. (John 1:12; Acts
16:30-33; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-9)
We believe that Jesus is the Way, The Truth, and the Life—the one and only way to eternal life. (John 14:6)
The Christian Walk:
We believe that we have a holy calling to walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit, and so to live in the power of the indwelling Spirit in order that we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. The flesh is never eradicated in this life.
choose to keep the flesh in subjection to Jesus Christ through the power of the
Holy Spirit, or it will surely manifest its presence in life and dishonor our
Lord. (Romans 6:11-13; 8:2, 4, 12-13;
Ephesians 4:22-24; Colossians 2:1-10; 1 Peter 1:14-16; 1
John 1:4-7; 3:5-9)
The Great Commission:
Until the return of
Christ, it is our duty and privilege to seek the fulfillment of
Christ's Great Commission and to minister in His name to a lost and dying world. We are
Ambassadors of Jesus Christ, and we are to be Powerful Vessels as the Holy Spirit ministers redemption and reconciliation through us -- to the world. (Matthew 25:31-46;
