Our Beliefs

PURPOSE AND AIMS

1. The salvation of the lost through the preaching and teaching of the Gospel.

2. The edifying of believers through the preaching and teaching of the Word of God and    the observance of the two ordinances: Baptism by immersion and the Lord's supper.

3. The creating and cultivating of interest in, and devotion to missions.

4. The maintaining of a high standard of Christian conduct.

DOCTRINAL STATEMENT

1. We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God, inerrant in the original writings, the Word of God, and the final authority in faith and conduct.

2. We believe in one God, the Creator of man and all things, eternally existing in three Persons in a threefold relationship; that of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

3. We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is God incarnate, the God-Man.

4. 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; that Adam's sin is imputed to the whole race of mankind; that all human beings are born with a sinful nature; and that when they reach the state of moral responsibility become sinners before God in thought, word, and deed.

5. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe on him are freely justified before God and stand before Him accepted in the character and merit of Jesus Christ.

6. We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, in His ascension into heaven, and that in His present glorified body He is the Head of the Church, the Lord of the individual believer, the High Priest over the house of God, and the Advocate in the family of God.

7. We believe in the personal, imminent, pretribulational, and premillennial second coming of Christ; first to receive His own to Himself, and later to set up His earthly kingdom and to reign over redeemed Israel and all nations; that is, to bring peace and blessing to the whole world.

8. We believe that all who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour are born again of the Holy Spirit and Word of God, receive the Holy Spirit and a new nature, and also are baptized by the Holy Spirit into the body of Christ. After experiencing salvation, by the new birth, we believe in being baptized by immersion into the fellowship of the local church.

9. We believe that God is the spiritual Father of only those who trust His Son, Jesus Christ, as Saviour, and that only those saved through faith in Christ are spiritual brothers and sisters.

10. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust; the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the unsaved.

11. We believe that, upon receiving Christ as Saviour and Lord by faith, the Holy Spirit takes up His residence within the believer and that He never departs (Eph. 1:13-14; John 7:38-39; Rom. 8:9; I Cor. 12:3).

12. We believe sanctification means "a setting apart" unto God in reference to the believer.

A.   The moment a person believes, he is set apart.

B.    The believer is to progressively grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord.

C.    At the coming of Christ, the believer will be completely set apart (I Thess. 5:23;
I Thess. 3:12-13).
