Who We Are

Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith

Because of widespread unbelief and apostasy, this Church reaffirms its faith in the following:

  • The verbal inspiration and infallibility of the thirty-nine books of the Old Testament and the twenty-seven books of the New Testament in their original writings comprising the complete written Revelation from God;
  • The Eternal, Triune God--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;
  • The creation, including man, as the direct act of God;
  • The fall of man through sin with resulting depravity of the entire race;
  • The redemptive work of Christ whereby, through His death for man’s sin, He forgives, cleanses and gives everlasting life to those who exercise saving faith in Him;
  • The Virgin Birth of Christ as a supernatural work of God;
  • The death of Christ as the Substitute for man, and His bodily resurrection from the dead;
  • The ascension of Christ and His Mediatorial work in Heaven for us;
  • The Personal, Pre-millennial coming of Christ to set up His Millennial Kingdom;
  • The Pre-millennial and pre-tribulational rapture of believers in Christ;
  • The eternal conscious blessedness of those who are saved and the eternal conscious judgment of those who are lost;
  • Separation from worldliness, unbelief and apostasy.
