STATEMENT OF FAITH :
We believe: That the scriptures of both the Old and New Testament are verbally inspired of God, that they are the supreme and final authority for faith and practice. 2 Timothy 3:16; Psalm 12:6-7.
We believe: In the Deity of Jesus Christ. His conception by the Holy Spirit, His virgin birth, His sinless life, his death on the cross to pay the penalty of our sins, His bodily resurrection, His exaltation at God‘s right hand, and His personal, imminent, premillennial, and pre-tribulational return. Matt. 1:20; 2 Cor. 1:21; Eph. 1:7; Luke 24:6, 39; 1 Tim. 2:5
We believe: in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. That God is supreme in His person, absolute in His attributes, glorious in His perfection, and eternal in His being. 1 John 5:7
We believe: The blood shed by Jesus Christ on the cross to be the only and all-sufficient remedy for the sin of man; that this blood alone makes an atonement for the soul. Lev. 17:11; Heb. 9:22
We believe: That the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, one with the Father and the Son, the in dweller of every believer to enlighten, guide, and enable him in life, testimony, and service, and seal each believer until the day of redemption of the body. John 15:26,27; John 14:7-11; Eph. 1:13,14
We believe: The redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer. Matthew 8:16-17; Acts 5:16; James 5:14-16
We believe: In the imminent, pre-tribulational, pre-millennial, return of Christ. The Lord shall return for His Church and rapture out the Church at any given moment. The world will then enter into a seven year period of tribulation that will end with the battle of Armageddon and the Second Advent of Jesus Christ. He will come as „King of Kings“ and „Lord of Lords,“ and establish His kingdom that will last for 1,000 years. The Lord will then judge the living and the dead at the Great White Throne Judgment (Which is different from the Judgment Seat of Christ where the Lord judges the Church). After this, all the lost, Satan, death and hell are cast into the Lake of Fire, while the Lord and His saints enter into „eternal bliss.“ 1 Thess 4:13-18; 1 Cor 15:51-58; Matt 24:3-41; Rev 19:11-21; 20:1-15; 21:1-6
We believe: That the local church is a congregation of baptized believers, instituted for the purpose of worship, service, and fellowship. The local church is an indigenous and autonomous body. We further believe in „The Church“ as a living organism. It consists of all the blood-bought, born-again believers throughout the Church Age. This body of the redeemed collectively makes up the ultimate bride of Christ. Acts 2:42; Eph. 5:21-23
We believe: There are two ordinances for the local church: Baptism in water (immersion) Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:48, and The Lord’s Supper, 2 Peter 1:4; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26.
