Doctrinally, we are a strong evangelical church group who believes the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that the central message of the Bible concerns Jesus Christ, God's Son, the Savior and Lord of mankind. All of our beliefs are based squarely on the teachings of Scripture. The following is a basic list of our doctrinal beliefs.
· There is only one God who is infinitely perfect, existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
· Jesus Christ is true God and true Man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
· The Holy Spirit is a divine person sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer and convict the world of sin, of righteousness and judgement.
· The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God.
· Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God. He fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
· Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life and become children of God.
· It is the will of God that each believer should be sanctified wholly, being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service.
· Praying for the sick as taught in James 5 by the Pastors and Lay-Elders of our church.
· The Church consists of all those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through his blood and are born again of the Holy Spirit. The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, for fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel and the observance of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper.
· There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection into life; for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment.
· The second coming of the Lord Jesus is imminent and will be personal, visible and premillenial.
