Organizational Statement of Faith


Articles of Faith 1. We believe the Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God, without any error, the all-sufficient authority in matters of faith, doctrine, and Christian living. We believe that the Bible, consisting of 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, is the infallible Word of God, a supernaturally -given revelation from God Himself, concerning Himself, His being, nature, character, will and purposes, and concerning people, their nature, needs, duty and destiny. The Scriptures are accurate, infallible and authoritative in their moral and spiritual teaching and record of historic facts. 2. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. 3. We believe in the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ, and that He is true God and man. He lived and taught and wrought mighty works and signs, exactly as recorded in the four Gospels. He was put to death by crucifixion, showed Himself alive to His disciples, appearing to them for a period of forty days. After this time the Lord Jesus ascended into heaven and the Father caused Him to sit at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority, and power, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come; and put all in subjection under His feet, and gave Him to be Head over all things in the Church. He is now our High Priest and Advocate. 4. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ became in every respect a real person, possessed of all essential characteristics of human nature. 5. We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and therefore lost. Only through regeneration by the work of the Holy Spirit can man's salvation and spiritual life be obtained. 6. We believe that eternal salvation is the free gift of God, entirely apart from man's works, and is possessed by any and all who have faith in and receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour. 7. We believe in a regenerated church membership: that is, persons old enough to understand their need for Jesus Christ and, of their own free will, accepted Him as their personal Lord and Saviour. 8. We believe that baptism is by immersion and the Lord's Supper is a memorial to His suffering and death on the cross. These are ordinances to be observed by the church in its present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means for man's salvation. 9. We believe in the personal, bodily, imminent, and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ and that His Second Coming inspires believers for dynamic and zealous life and service for Him while waiting for His return. 10. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, the everlasting blessedness of the saved in heaven, and the everlasting punishment and separation from God of the unsaved in hell. 11. We believe that people were created in the image of God, after His likeness, but the whole human race fell in the fall of the first Adam- We believe that all people, until they accept the Lord Jesus as their personal Saviour are lost, darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, hardened hi their heart morally and spiritually dead through their trespasses and sins. They cannot see nor enter the kingdom of God until they are born again of the Holy Spirit. 12. We believe that people are justified on the simple and single ground of the shed blood of Christ and upon the simple and single condition of faith in Him who shed the blood. They are born again by the quickening, renewing and cleansing of the Holy Spirit, through the instrumentality of the Word of God. 13. We believe that all those who receive Jesus Christ as their Lord, and who confess Him as such before their fellow human beings, become children of God, and receive eternal life- They become joint heirs with Jesus Christ- At death, their spirits depart to be with Christ in conscious blessedness. At the coming of Christ their bodies shall be raised and transformed into the likeness of the body of this glory. 14. We believe that the Church consists of all those who, in this present dispensation, truly believe in Jesus Christ. It is the body and bride of Christ, which Christ loves and for which He has given Himself up.
