About

Doctrinal Beliefs

We believe in the verbal inspiration, inerrancy, and authority of Scriptures

(II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21)

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God but voluntarily fell from his sinless state. As a result, all men are sinners and hopelessly sinful in themselves, apart from the grace of God

(Genesis 1:27, 9-6; Romans 3:23, 5:12; Ephesians 2:1).

We believe that the Godhead exists eternally in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit and these three are one God

(Genesis 1:26, John 4:24, 10:30; Deuteronomy).

We believe that the eternal Son of God became incarnate in the Lord Jesus Christ, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is both true God and true man, apart from sin

(John 1:1, 14, 18; Matthew 1:21-23; I John 5:20).

We believe that the salvation is received by grace alone through faith in the substitutionary death of the Lord Jesus Christ: that for our sins He died and was resurrected for our justification

(I Peter 3:18, I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 1:16)

We believe that every true believer, born of the Spirit, can have full assurance of salvation and is eternally secure in Christ

(John 3:5-6; John 10:28-29; I John 5:12-13).

We believe that every believer is called to a holy life of service and should belong to a Bible-believing Local Church for fellowship and for the furtherance of the Gospel to every creature at home and around the world

(I Peter 1:15-16; Matthew 28:19-20; Hebrews 10:25; Acts 1:8; Mark 16:15).

We believe in the imminent return of the Lord, which is the blessed hope of the Church, to be preceded by apostasy and the man of sin being revealed , followed by the rapture, the tribulation, the Great Tribulation and the second coming of Christ, to rule and reign for one thousand (1,000) years

(I Thessalonians 1:10, 4:13-18, 5:1-10, II Thessalonians 2:1-12; Titus 2:13; Matthew 24l:21, 29-30;25-31).

We believe in the everlasting conscious blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost

(Matthew 25:46; Revelation 20:1-6).

We believe in men in leadership – We believe God’s plan for His Church is that men would function in the position of leadership. There are four (4) positions in the Bible concerning leadership in the Church:  Pastor, Bishop, Elder and Deacons.  The only way man can serve in these positions of leadership is that he must be Biblically qualified.

(I Timothy 3:1-16; Acts 6:2-3)

We do not believe that women are called as Pastors, Bishops or Elders. We do not believe that women are to serve as Deacons in the same capacity as men.

(I Timothy 3:8-10, 12, 13; I Acts 6:2-3)

We believe that homosexuality is a sin and an abomination before the Lord. (Deuteronomy 17-18, Romans 1:27-28). We believe God’s original plan for procreation was for a man and a woman to be joined together in marriage.

(Genesis 2:24; Psalm 1:28; 3; Matthew 5:32)

We believe that if a man lives a life of homosexuality, he will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

(Genesis 19:4-5, I Corinthians 6:9)

We also believe that if a person lives a life of homosexuality, she will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

(Genesis 19:4-5, I Corinthians 6:9)

We believe that any person that lives and practices a homosexual lifestyle can be saved, receive eternal life and set free from that lifestyle.

(John 3:16; 8:32; Romans 10:9; I Corinthians 6:9-10)
