What We TeachDoctrinal Statement

 

We Teach that the Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired: that it is inerrant in the original manuscripts and preserved by God in its verbal, plenary inspiration; and that it is a divinely authoritative standard for every age and every life.

We Teach that the Godhead exists eternally in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - and that these three are one God.

We Teach that God is absolute and sole Creator of the universe and that creation was by divine decree, not through evolutionary process.

We Teach that God, by His sovereign choice and out of love for men, sent Christ into the world to save sinners.

We Teach that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man; that He was born of a virgin and that He lived a sinless life, in which He taught and wrought mighty works, wonders and signs exactly as revealed in the four Gospels; that He was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins and was raised from the dead bodily on the third day. Later he ascended to the Father's right hand where He is head of the church and intercedes for believers, and from whence He is coming again personally, bodily and visibly to this earth to set up His millennial kingdom.

We Teach that since in His death, by His shed blood, the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for sin, redeeming us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. Men are saved and justified on the simple and single ground of the shed blood.

We Teach that such salvation with its forgiveness of sins, its impartation of a new nature, and its hope of eternal life, is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership - or man's effort - and is of pure grace.

We Teach that a true believer is eternally secure, that he cannot lose his salvation, but that sin may interrupt the joy of his fellowship with God and bring the loving discipline of his Heavenly Father.

We Teach that all who receive Christ become joint-heirs with Christ, and at death, their spirits depart to be with Christ in conscious blessedness and at the rapture their bodies will be raised to the likeness of the body of His glory and dwell forever in His divine presence.

We Teach that it is the goal of every Christian to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God and the indwelling Spirit.

We Teach that the Holy Spirit is a person, is God, and possesses all the divine attributes. He indwells all believers, baptizes and seals them at the moment of their salvation, and fills them in response to confession of sin and yielded ness.

We Teach in this respect, that the Holy Spirit is sovereign in the bestowing of all His gifts for the perfecting of the saints today. Speaking in tongues and the working of sign miracles in the beginning days of the church were for the purpose of pointing to and authenticating the apostles as revealers of divine truth, and were never intended to be characteristic of the lives of believers today.
