What We Believe
(2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:20-21; Ps. 12:6-7)
As well, we believe that the incorruptible Word of God, which cannot pass away, is available to the English speaking world in the Authorized (King James) Version. Therefore the only translation used from the pulpit, in classroom study and at any church function will be this version.
(Duet. 6:4; Matt. 28:29; 1 John 5:7)
God the Father-We believe in God the Father, perfect in holiness, boundless in love, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayers, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ, His Son.
God the Son-We believe in Jesus Christ, God the Son, pre-existent with the Father, begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, sinless in His nature and life, infallible in His teaching, making atonement for the sins of the world by His substitutionary death on the cross. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into Heaven, His perpetual intercession for His people and His glorious second advent according to His promise.
God the Holy Spirit-We believe in the deity and personality of the Holy Spirit. We believe that He came from God to convince and convict the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; and to regenerate, sanctify, indwell, comfort and empower those who believe in Jesus Christ.
(Gen. 1:26-27; 2:16; 3:16-19; Rom. 3:10-13; 6:23)
(Acts 2:41-42, 46-47; Matt. 28:19-20)
(John 10:28; 1 John 5:13; 1 Cor. 15:1-4; Heb. 9:11-12; Rom. 5:1; Eph. 2:8-9)
We believe that once a man has been saved by faith that he is eternally secure in Christ.
(John 5:29; John 3:36; Revelation 20:1-6)
We believe in “The Blessed Hope” of all those saved by grace through faith. That hope is the personal, pre-tribulational return of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ in the air, to rapture His church according to 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. We also believe in the premillennial return of Christ with His saints at the end of the tribulation to set up His reign for 1000 years.
