We believe that all believers should seek to walk in such a manner as to not bring reproach upon their Lord and Savior and that separation from worldly practices is commanded by God (Romans 12:1-2; 14:13; I Cor. 6:19-20; Col. 3:17; I John 2:15-17). We believe that it is the obligation of every believer to
We believe that water baptism and the Lord's Supper are the only ordinances of the church and that they are the scriptural means of testimony for the church in this age (I Cor. 11:2). Believer's baptism is the immersion of a believer in water; in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and
We believe that the souls of those who have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation do at death immediately pass into His presence (Luke 23:43) and there remain in conscious bliss until the resurrection of the body at His coming, when soul and body, reunited shall be associated with Him forever. The souls
We believe in the personal imminent coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for His own (I Thess. 4:13-18) and His subsequent premillennial return to earth to set up His Kingdom (Zech. 14:4-11; Rev. 20:6; Acts 15:16-17; Matt. 24:32-35).
We believe that the church, the body of Christ, is a spiritual organism, made up of all born-again persons of this present age, irrespective of their affiliation with Christian organization (Eph. 1:22-23; 5:25-27; I Cor. 12:12-14). The local church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized for worship, work, and fellowship. The mission
We believe that sanctification, which is a setting apart unto God is threefold: First, at the time of Salvation, the individual is positionally set apart once for all (Heb. 10:10; I Cor. 6:11). Second, we believe, however, that he retains his sin nature, which cannot be eradicated from his nature, which cannot be eradicated from
We believe, because of the eternal purpose of God toward His creation and because of His freedom to exercise grace toward the sinner on the ground of the finished work of Christ, all genuine true believers who are once a child of God are kept secure forever (Rom. 8:1,38,39; John 10:27-30; John 5:24; I Pet.
We believe that Salvation is the gift of God brought to man through grace (Eph. 2:8-9) and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:12-13) whose precious blood was shed for the forgiveness of sins (Eph. 1:7). Because man is dead in trespasses and sins (Eph. 2:1-2) he must be born from
We believe that the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity took up His abode in the world in a special sense on the day of Pentecost, who according to promise indwells every believer (I Cor. 6:19-20; John 14:16-17.) He baptizes each believer into the Body of Christ, (I Cor. 12:13) seals them unto
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the Eternal Son of God, became man, (John 1:14) being conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary (Luke 1:35) in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man. We believe that He accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross. His
