We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ was begotten, not created – truly God and truly man. He was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a vicarious and atoning death for the sins of the world, resurrected bodily for our justification and now reigns in glory until all things be put under His feet.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God. Furthermore, we believe that the church has no authority to establish doctrine or practice contrary to these same Scriptures.
We believe that man was made in the image of God and is the crown of his creation. He is now, by reason of the fall, spiritually depraved and alienated from his Creator. Apart from God’s grace, he has no ability to attain to his high calling.
We believe that those who are called by the name of Christ should depart from iniquity. Understanding that salvation from the penalty of sin only begins with the process of redemption, we acknowledge that work of the Holy Spirit is to create in us the character of Christ.
We believe the identity of the body of Christ on the earth is primarily perceived through the local church. While recognizing the need for consensus on matters of fundamental doctrine and conduct, we strongly confess the local church to be sovereign and autonomous.
We believe that the callings of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher are functional within the Body of Christ until the Lord’s return.Furthermore, these ministries are gifts to the Church for the purpose of equipping the saints for the work of ministry, that the Body of Christ may be edified.
We believe in the literal second coming of our Lord, the literal rule of Christ upon the earth, the resurrection of the regenerate to eternal life and the unregenerate to eternal damnation, and the ultimate victory of the eternal Kingdom of God.
