The bible was written by men divinely inspired, and is the infallible word of GOD. It reveals principles by which GOD judges us and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world the supreme standard by which all human conduct and religious opinions should be tried.
There is only one true and living GOD. He is the creator, sustainer, redeemer, and ruler of the universe. He is infinite in holiness and perfect in all his ways. We believe he is eternally existent and reveals himself in three distinct manifestations of his own person: the FATHER the SON, and the HOLY SPIRIT.
Man was created by the special act of GOD in his own image and in his own likeness. We believe man’s original state was perfect fellowship with GOD. Through the temptation of Satan man transgressed the commandments of GOD and fell from his original state of holiness. Because of this, all mankind inherit the sin nature of Adam. We believe that only the grace of God, by faith in JESUS CHRIST, can bring man into fellowship with the FATHER again.
Salvation involves redemption of the whole man and is offered freely to all who will accept JESUS CHRIST as LORD and SAVIOR. We believe in the new birth and that believers become new creatures in CHRIST JESUS after repentance, belief, and confession of sin. (2 Cor 5: 17).
Water baptism, the immersion of the believer in water is an act of obedience. We believe that JESUS CHRIST was crucified, buried, and rose as our SAVIOR. We believe water baptism represents death to sin and the burial of the old man rising to walk in the newness of life.
JESUS CHRIST will return bodily and in visible form in glory to the earth. We believe in the catching away of the church. We believe the dead in Christ will rise first, then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up to meet the LORD in the air and so shall we ever be with him. We believe the unsaved will be separated from believers and from the kingdom of GOD and assigned forever to a place of judgment and everlasting damnation.
