Doctrine


We believe...

...in the verbal inspiration and authority of the Scriptures, that the Bible reveals God, the fall of man, the way of salvation, and God’s plan and purpose in the ages. II Tim. 3:16,17; II Pet. 1:19-21; Acts 28:25; Ps. 119:105,130,160; Ps. 19:7-11; Ps. 12:6,7; Rev. 22:19

...that God has preserved His Word for the English-speaking people in the King James Version of the Bible.

...the Godhead eternally exists in three persons; the Father, he Son, and the Holy Spirit. Ex. 20:2,3; Gen. 17:1; I Cor. 8:6; Eph. 4:6; Jn. 4:24; Ps. 147:41; Ps. 83:18; Ps. 90:2; Jer. 10:10; Ex. 15:11; Rev. 4:11; I Tim. 1:17; Ro. 11:33; Mk. 12:30; Mt. 28:19; Jn. 15:26

...in the deity, virgin birth, and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. Isa.7:14; 9:6; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-2,14; II Cor.5:19-21; Gal.4:4-5; Phil.2:5-8 Acts 2:18-36; Eph.1:7; 1 Peter 1:3-5

...that Jesus Christ became the sinner’s substitute before God, and died as a propitiatory sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. 1 Pet.2:24; Rom.3:24-25; I Jn. 2:2; I Pet. 3:18

...that salvation is “by grace” plus nothing minus nothing. The conditions to salvation are repentance and faith. Eph. 2:8,9; Ro. 3:24; Isa. 55:1; Rev. 22:17; Acts 20:21; Acts 3:19; Acts 26:20; Ezek. 14:6; Ezek. 18:30; Pr. 28:13

...that men are justified by faith alone and are counted righteous before God only through the merit of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Gal. 2:16; Heb. 11:6; Ro. 4:2-5,16; I Tim. 2:5; Jn. 14:6; Acts 4:12; II Cor. 5:21; Phil. 3:9

...that the true believer is forever secure as a redeemed possession of God. This security is founded on the full payment of the believer’s sin by the Cross of Christ in His substitutionary atonement and God’s proof of receipt of that payment in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jn. 1:12,13; I Cor. 6:19,20; Eph. 1:13,14; Eph. 4:30 ; Jn. 10:27-30; Heb. 7:25; Jude 24; I Pet. 1:5

...that all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ are called into a life of separation from worldly and sinful practices. Ro. 12:1,2; II Cor. 6:4-7; I Jn. 2:15-17; Col. 3:1-17

...in the imminent return of Christ for all believers, followed by His Second Advent to establish His earthly kingdom. Ps.89:3-4; Dan.2:31-45; Zech.14:4-ll; l Thess.4:13-18; Titus 2:13; Rev.3:10; 19:11-16; 20:1-6

...that the souls of those who have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation will, at death, immediately pass into His presence. Lk. 16:19-26; Lk. 23:43; II Cor. 5:8; Phil. 1:23

...that the souls of the lost remain after death in everlasting, conscious punishment. II Thess. 1:7-9; Jude 6; Mt. 25:46; Rev. 20:11-15
