What We Believe

According to the scriptures

fa-book

The Bible

The King James

We believe in the inspiration and preservation of the word of God. That is, it was inspired of God the moment it was spoken and then the spoken word was written down by holy men of God (1 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:16; Jeremiah 36:1-4); we believe the God who inspired His word also is powerful enough to keep His word (Psalms 12:6-7; Matthew 24:35). Furthermore, we believe that the King James Bible does not just contain the word of God but is in fact the very words of God and His final authority in these last days.

Dispensationalism

Rightly Divide

We believe that the Scriptures interpreted in their natural, literal sense, reveal divinely determined dispensations or rules of life which define man's responsibility in successive ages. These are divinely ordered stewardships by which God directs man according to His purpose. These dispensations are the subjects of detailed revelation in Scripture (Gen. 1:1-2:8; 12:1-3; 15:18-21;Ex. 18-19, II Sam. 7:8-16; Matt. 26:28; Rev. 21-22).

Triune Godhead

Trinity

We believe in one triune God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - each co-eternal in being co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections (Deut. 6:4;Matt. 28:19, II Cor. 13:14; Jn. 14:10-26).

The Person and Work of Christ -

The Lord Jesus Christ

[1]. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God became Man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man (Isa. 7:14; 9:6; Lk. 1:35; Jn.1:1-2,14; II Cor. 5:19-21; Gal. 4:4-5; Phil. 2:5-8).
[2]. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice, and that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead (Acts 2:18-36;Rom. 3:24-25; I Pet. 2:24; Eph. 1:7; I Pet. 1:3-5).
[3].We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended in to heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry of representative, intercessor, and advocate (Acts 1:9-10; Heb. 9:24; 7:25; Rom.8:34; I Jn. 2:1-2).

The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a Person, who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment, and that He is the supernatural agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption (Jn. 16:8-11; Rom. 8:9; I Cor. 12:12-14; II Cor.3:6; Eph. 1:13-14).
We believe that He is the divine Teacher, who enables believers to understand and appropriate the Scriptures, and that it is the privilege and duty of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit (Eph. 1:17-18; 5:18; I Jn. 2:20,27).
We believe that God is sovereign in the bestowal of spiritual gifts to every believer. God uniquely uses evangelists and pastors and teachers to equip believers in the assembly in order that they can do the work of the ministry (Rom. 12:3-8; I Cor.12:4-11,28; Eph. 4:7-12).

The Depravity of Man

The Fall

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam's sin the human race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God, and that man is depraved and of himself utterly unable to remedy his lost condition (Gen. 1:26-27; Rom. 3:22-23; 5:12,23; Eph. 2:1-3; 4:17-19).

Salvation

Free Gift

We believe that salvation is the gift of God, brought to man by grace, and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins (Jn. 1:12; Eph. 1:7; 2:8-10; I Pet. 1:18-19).
