Our Beliefs

We Believe...


The scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the verbally inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will  for the salvation of men and the Divine and final authority for Christian faith and obedient living. It is absolute truth for everyone, in every situation, and for all of time. It boldly defines moral and immoral relationships; family, political, environmental, social (abortion, etc.), and marital issues as defined by physical attributes at birth. Life is not about what a person wants to do or be, but what God wants a person to do or be as dictated by the Word of God. (References: Acts 4:12; Rom. 10:9-10; Matt. 28:20a; Jn. 14:15, 15:1, 14:6; II Tim. 3:16-17; Gen. 1:27, 2:18-24; Ps. 139:13-17)

Jesus Christ

That Jesus Christ as the pre-existing Creator God, chose to be the God-man by taking on the form of a servant, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.  He laid down His life on the cross as a sacrifice to pay the death penalty that every human begin deserved for going their own way according to the Scriptures. Thus, terms like limited atonement and irresistible grace are completely rejected and viewed as heretically divisive reasoning that not only divides, but steals the motivation to be obedient in personal evangelism. These false concepts also deny human responsibility, that is needed for a decision of salvation to occur. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended back into heaven, and serves as our High Priest and Advocate, and is the basis for a believer's bodily resurrection. (References: Col. 1:16-18; Rev. 22:13; Phil. 2:6-7; Jn. 3:16; I Jn. 2:2; II Pet. 3:9; Deut. 30:19-20; Pro. 8:17; Jer. 29:13; Matt. 1:18-22, 23:37, 28:1-6; Rom. 5:18, 8:34, 10:13; I Cor. 15:3-4; Heb. 7:24-27)


In one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with no beginning and no end. (References: Matt. 3:16-17; I Cor. 8:6; Eph. 4:4-6; I John 5:7)

Holy Spirit

That the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and to seal the believer for the day of redemption. During this age, the He convicts men, regenerates the believing sinner, indwells, guides, instructs, and empowers the believer for godly living and service. (References: John 15:26, 16:7-11; I Cor. 6:19-20; Gal. 5:16-18; Eph. 4:30)


That the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only grounds for justification and salvation from a Christ-less eternity. Anyone (God made provisions for every human being with His death on the cross) who willingly chooses to embrace Christ's sovereign and gracious offer of salvation, and verbally place (human responsibility) their faith in Jesus Christ and what He did for them with His death on the cross and the reality of Him conquering death with His resurrection that followed, experiences their sin debt (death penalty) past, present, and future, paid in full. Faith in themselves is relinquished as they "believe" (to acknowledge and then act), by surrendering their will to Christ. This change in direction is what repentance is all about. Without repentance (change in direction), there can be no forgiveness of sin where "old things are past away, and all things become new." Only those who, by faith believe and then act by surrendering their lives to Christ are born by the Holy Spirit and into God's forever family. (References: Luke 13:3,5; John 1:12, 3:16, 14:6; Acts 4:12; Rom. 6:23, 10:9-10, 13: II Cor. 5:17; Eph. 2:8-9, Ti. 3:5; I John 5:10-13)


That man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin (going their own way or missing the mark) and is  hopelessly separated from a holy God. Realizing man is unable to save himself with good works, he must turn to a willing perfect Substitute to pay the accumulated debt that his sin has created.  Sin must be paid in full, and not overlooked if forgiveness is to take place and a relationship with a holy God is to be experienced. (References: Isa. 53:6; Gen. 1:26; John 3:36; Rom. 3:23, 5:12; Titus 3:4-7)

Baptism & Communion

That water baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordinances to be observed by the church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means or part of salvation. (References: Matt. 28:19,20; Rom. 6:3-8; I Cor. 11:23-30; Eph. 2:8-9; Tit. 3:5)


That the true Church is composed of all such persons who, through saving faith in Christ Jesus, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head. (References: I Cor. 12:12-14; Eph. 1:22-23, 5:23; Col. 1:18)

Local Church

That Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church, and that every local church has the right under Christ to decide and govern its own affairs in compliance with Scripture. (References: Acts 14:23, 15:1-12, 16:4; I Cor. 12:5-7)


That only those who are thus members of the true Church shall be eligible for membership in the local church. Baptism has nothing to do with salvation, but is vital in understanding salvation because it is after salvation in obedience that one would be baptized and then become a member. (References: Acts 2:42-47)


In the imminent pretribulational rapture or "snatching away" of the church, followed by a seven year tribulation of Christ's wrath being poured out upon the earth, that concludes with a literal (not allegorical) return of Christ to rule and reign on this earth (premillennial) for a thousand years, and that this "Blessed Hope" has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer. Next to the doctrine of salvation, the millennial kingdom is the second most discussed topic in the Bible and is addressed in the writings of Moses, David, each of the major prophets, ten of the twelve minor prophets, the four gospels, and writings of the apostles (Paul, Peter, John). (References: Matt. 24:29-31, 25:31; John 14:3; Acts 1:11; I Cor. 15:51-58; I Thes. 5:9; I Tim 4:1; Titus 2:13; Rev. 20:1-7)

Eternal Life

In the bodily resurrection of the dead, of the believer to everlasting blessedness as joint heirs of Christ, of the unbeliever who has personally refused to place his trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and his finished work on the cross during his lifetime, to judgement and everlasting conscious punishment in hell. (References: Mt. 13:42; Mk. 9:43-48; Rom. 8:1-17; I Cor. 15:51-57; I Thes. 2:19; 4:13-18; Rev. 20:4, 11-15) 

Security in Christ

In the security of the believer in Christ as a scriptural truth. This is a security in which all true believers share, meaning "once saved, always saved," they shall be assured to be kept saved forever in Christ. The security of believers rests not in a person onto God but God holding onto them. Christ is faithful even when his followers are not. (References: Jn. 5:24, 10:27-30, 11:25-26; Ron. 8:1-17, 38,39; I Cor. 1:4-8; I Pet. 1:3-5; I Jn. 5:10-13)

Statement of Faith

In all ministries that grow out of this church (counseling, camp, schooling, etc.) to employ those who will be full or part-time paid staff who willingly sign a statement that they are born again and in full compliance with the purpose of this church and embrace completely the Statement of Faith, should immediately be discharged from employment. This expectation of a signed mandate regarding the Church's purpose Statement of Faith also would apply to mission candidates seeking support and any potential denominational affiliation.
