Organizational Statement of Faith: 

We believe in the divine inspiration and authority of the Scriptures. (2 Timothy 3:16) We believe in the inerrancy of Scripture in the Original Autograph. (Job 32:8).

We believe in one God (Deuteronomy 6:4, Jn 10:30) revealed as eternally existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that God created a host of angels, some of whom followed the lead of Lucifer, now called Satan, in rebelling against God, thereby bringing sin into the world. We believe in Satan's ultimate complete defeat by the Lord Jesus Christ / Yeshua. (Genesis 3:15, Revelation 20:2).

We believe that man was created in the image of God, that man sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also that spiritual death; which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and, become sinners in thought, word and deed. With such a nature, they are incapable of producing anything acceptable to God. (Gen 3:8-24, Rom 3:10-12).

We believe that Jesus Christ/Yeshua was begotten of the Holy Spirit, and born of a virgin, Mary, and is true God and true man. We believe that He died for the sins of men as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of Jesus Christ/Yeshua, in His ascension into heaven. (Mat 1:20).

We believe that men are justified by grace through faith, on the ground of the shed blood of Jesus Christ/Yeshua, and that all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ/Yeshua as Savior are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become the children of God ( EPH 2:8-10, JN 3:3-8).

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting conscious blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost ( MAT 25:31-46).

We believe that it is the supreme responsibility of believers to testify to the saving power of the gospel ( ACT 1:8).

We believe that it is the duty of each believer to live a holy life unto God, keeping himself unspotted from the world, and that it is God's intention that this shall be accomplished in the believer's life by his constant dependence on the divine enablement of the indwelling Holy Spirit. Scriptures both Old and New Testament, not by man, describe Holiness ( PSA 1:1-2; 119:1-8, JN 2:15-17).

We believe that God in the Scriptures has progressively revealed Himself through the Scriptures and directly through the Prophets ( EPH 2:19-22).

We believe that the Church had its historical beginning at Pentecost; is composed solely of believers ( ACT 2:1-41).

We believe that at any moment the Rapture of the saved may occur, when "the Lord himself shall descend from heaven" to catch up His people to meet Him "in the air" ( I Th 4:13-18).

We believe in the personal, bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ. He will then set up His kingdom upon the earth for His thousand-year reign, after which He will deliver the kingdom to the Father ( MAT 24:29-31).

We believe that all believers should live a life of obedience to the scriptures both Old and New Testament ( DEU 4:39-40, JN15:10, I JN 3:24)
