Organizational Statement of Faith: 

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons ƒ‚ ‚— Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:18-19; Mark 12:29; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:1-3; Acts 5:3-4)

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man. (Luke 1:26-38; John 1:14; 14:6-11; Hebrews 1:1-8)

We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and, in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, become sinners in thought, word and deed. (Romans 3:10-26; 1 Thessalonians 1:7-9; Jeremiah 17:9)

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood. (1 Corinthians 15:1-10; 1 John 1:7; 2:1-2; 1 Peter 3:18; Romans 3:24-25)

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate. (1 Corinthians 15:1-10; Hebrews 10:12-22; 1 John 2:1-2)

We believe in that blessed hope, the personal, premillennial and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. (Hebrews 9:28; Revelation 1:5-8; Acts 1:8-12; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, thereby receiving eternal life and thus becoming children of God. (John 1:12; 3:3-16; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; John 10:27-29)

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting, conscious punishment of the lost. (Matthew 25:46; Daniel 12:2-3; Revelation 20:4-6, 10-15)

We believe in the spreading of the Gospel as Jesus said ƒ‚ ‚… ƒ‚ ‚"Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. ƒ‚ ‚" (Mark 16:15; Luke 24:46-48; Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 5:20)
