Our Beliefs

The Great Commandment

We believe that love one for another as Jesus loves the believer manifests our discipleship, proves our love for God and symbolizes our authority as New Testament churches. Love is therefore the great commandment of the LORD Jesus Christ upon which all other are dependent.

Matthew 22:35-40; John 13:34-35; John 15:12; 1 John 4:7-21; 1 John 5:1-3; Revelation 2:4-5

 

The Bible

We believe in the infallible, verbal inspiration of the whole Bible and that the Bible is the all-sufficient rule of faith and practice.

Psalm 119:160; 2 Timothy 3:16-17

 

The Trinity

We believe in the personal triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, equal in divine perfection.

Matthew 28:19 

Creation

We believe in the Genesis account

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ.

We believe the Holy Spirit is the divine Administrator for Jesus Christ in His churches.

Luke 24:49; John 14:16-17; Acts 1:4-5, 8; Acts 2:1-4

 

Spiritual Gifts

We believe that miraculous spiritual manifestation gifts were done away when the Bible was completed. Faith, Hope, and Love are the vital abiding Spiritual Gifts.

1 Corinthians 12-14

Man

We believe that Man was created in the image of God and lived in innocency until he fell by voluntary transgression from his sinless state, the result being that all mankind are sinners.

Genesis 1:26; Genesis 3:6-24; Romans 5:12,19

 

Sufferings Of Jesus Christ

We believe that the suffering and death of Jesus Christ was substitutionary for all mankind and is efficacious only to those who believe.

Isaiah 53:6; Hebrews 2:9; 1 Peter 2:24; 1 Peter 3:18; 2 Peter 3:9; 1 John 2:2

 

Salvation

We believe that the depraved sinner is saved wholly by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, and the requisites to regeneration are repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and that the Holy Spirit convicts sinners, regenerates, seals, secures, and indwells every believer.

Luke 13:3-5; John 3:6; John 3:16-18; John 16:8,9; Acts 20:21; Romans 6:23; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Ephesians 2:8,9; Ephesians 4:30; Titus 3:5


Eternal Salvation

We believe that all who trust Jesus Christ for salvation are eternally secure in Him and shall not perish.

John 3:36; John 5:24; John 10:27-30; Romans 8:35-39; Hebrews 10:39; 1 Peter 1:5

 

The Church

We believe that Jesus Christ established His church during His ministry on earth and that it is always a local, visible assembly of scripturally baptized believers in covenant relationship to carry out the Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ, and each church is an independent, self-governing body, and no other ecclesiastical body may exercise authority over it. We believe that Jesus Christ gave the Great Commission to the New Testament churches only, and that He promised the perpetuity of His churches.

Matthew 4:18-22; Matthew 16:18; Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 1:14-20; John 1:35-51; Ephesians 3:21

 

Marriage

We believe the Biblical definition of marriage is the union between a man and a woman.

Genesis 2:21-24; Matthew 19:4-6; Mark 10:6-9; 1 Corinthians 7:2-4; Ephesians 5:22-31

 

Gender Identity

We believe God designates each individual their gender. God ordained two genders, male and female. Mankind does not possess the authority to identify themselves differently than their biological sex assigned by God, and any attempt to alter one's gender is sin.

Genesis 1:27; 5:2; Matthew 19:4 and Mark 10:6; Job 40:8; Jeremiah 13:23
