What We Believe

1. The Bible is the word of God, not that it merely contains the word of God. (Hebrews 4:12, 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
2. God is the person who created all things. He personally formed the world and each creature therein. All other creation accounts are false.
3. God created man in His image and likeness in one day, fully matured and highly intelligent. Not that he descended from molecules through the lower forms of life to monkey and man. (Gen. 1:26)
4. All angels and spirit beings were created by God, fully matured and intelligent. (Psalms 104:4)
5. God created man, animals, fish, fowls, and plants to reproduce themselves after their own kind. (Genesis 1:20-31)
6. Man is a sinner fallen from original righteousness and a high, intelligent and responsible place as the head of the present creation. (Romans 3:23-25)
7. Man is justified by Faith in the atoning blood of Jesus Christ resulting in supernatural regeneration from above.
(Romans 5:1-2)
8. Man, animals and plant life have degenerated and are under a curse. Man chooses to continue in sin, sickness, and sufferings of the earth and only through redemption in Christ will the whole creation be restored to original perfection and goodness. (Genesis 3 & Genesis 6:5-22)
9. All men who accept Christ and conform to God’s plan for man will be saved, will be resurrected from the dead to immorality and will help God administer the affairs of the universe forever. (John 3:16, John 5:28)
10. All men who reject Christ and do not conform to the plan of God for man will pay the eternal death penalty for sin; will be resurrected to immortality and will be punished eternally in the lake of fire.
(Revelations. 14:9-11)
11. Jesus Christ is the son of God in a sense that no other man is – the only begotten son of the Father. (Isaiah 7:14)
12. The trinity is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit; They are three different entities that make up one Godhead. (1 John 5:7)
13. The birth of Jesus was supernatural (Matthew. 1:18-25)
14. The death of Christ was expiatory, not exemplary. He died for all men. His blood is the only atonement for sin and by His stripes we are healed. (Matthew. 1:21)
15. Jesus Christ rose bodily from the dead, not spiritually or as a spirit being. (Luke 24:39)
16. Jesus Christ ascended into glory and He will come again in like manner to rule the world eternally. (Luke 24:50-53, Acts 1:11)
