DOCTRINAL

BIBLE

       We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, and the inerrant Word of God. (2 Tim 3:15-172 Pet 1:21)

GOD

       We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Gen 1:1Deut 6:4Matt 28:19;John 10:30)

JESUS

       We believe in the deity of Christ John 10:33; His virgin birth (Isa 7:14Matt 1:23Luke 1:34-35); His sinless life (Heb 4:15, 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His substitutionary and atoning death (1 Cor 15:3Eph 1:7Heb 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:251 Cor 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return to earth in power and glory (Acts 1:11Rev 19:11-16)

HOLY SPIRIT

       We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Rom 8:13-14;1 Cor 3:16, 6:19-20Eph 4:30, 5:18)

SALVATION

       We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of the human nature, and that all are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God’s grace through faith alone are we saved (John 3:16-19John 5:24Rom 3:23, 5:8-9Eph 2:8-10Titus 3:5)

RESURRECTION

       We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are not unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29)

CHRISTIANS

       We believe in the spiritual unity of the believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Rom 8:91 Cor 12:12-13Gal 3:26-28) Christians are examples of the love of God in this world. It is this love that we desire to possess and without which we have no right to call ourselves Christians (1 John 4:16-17)


DISTINCTIVES

  • We are not a denominational church, nor are we opposed to denominations as such, only their over-emphasis of the doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the Body of Christ.
  • We believe that the only true basis of Christian fellowship is His (Agape) love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.
  • We believe worship of God should be spiritual. Therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.
  • We believe worship of God should be inspirational. Therefore, we give a great place to music in our worship.
  • We believe worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon teaching the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshiped.
  • We believe worship of God is fruitful. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshiping Him.
