Statement of Beliefs

The Bible

The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God,[1] with every word verbally inspired by God[2] and absolutely true in everything it affirms[3]—in  faith, practice, life, and the cosmos (though accommodating the moment or the understanding of the hearers). It was written over approximately 1400 years by God's inspired prophets.[4] It contains everything necessary for life, godliness and salvation[5] for all mankind.[6] God has written it so that His people might keep it [7] and observe it fully and precisely[8] and thus it is fully authoritative over every person’s life. [9] We are not to question the Word of God, as Satan did,[10] but rather we are to accept every word because to refuse the Word of God is the refuse God Himself. [11]


There is only one God[12]—the eternal,[13] invisible[14] creator[15], perfect in all His ways[16] consisting of three distinct persons[17]: the Father,[18] the Son,[19] and the Holy Spirit.[20] Each member of the Trinity is co-equal, co-eternal, yet functioning according to different roles. God is omniscient knowing all things that were, are, will be and could be.[21] God is omnipotent, omnipresent,[22] never changing,[23] never losing power.[24] God is merciful,[25] compassionate,[26] loving,[27] and forgiving.[28] God is also holy,[29] righteous,[30] and has wrath towards those who sin.[31] And it is in Him that we live, move, and exist. [32]



Jesus is God,[33] the Second Person of the Trinity.[34] Being the essence, God, He has all the attributes of God that make God, God. He is the exact representation of God,[35] the Logos,[36] and our omniscient[37] Creator.[38] He was conceived of the Holy Spirit,[39] became flesh,[40] was born of the Virgin Mary,[41] and was both fully man[42] and fully God.[43] Jesus was sent by the Father[44] specifically to reveal the Father[45] and to restore man's relationship to God[46] as the Messiah,[47] the Savior,[48] to be a propitiation for our sins.[49] He lived a sinless life[50] and died[51] on a cross for humanity’s sins.[52] He is the only way of salvation.[53] After He died, He was buried,[54] but three days later[55] was raised bodily,[56] seen by many,[57] dwelt with the disciples for forty days,[58] and visibly ascended to heaven[59] where He sat at the right hand of the Father[60] and currently shares all authority, glory, and power[61] with the Him.[62]

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity.[63] He has been sent by the Father[64] and the Son[65] to instruct men in God’s Word,[66] to convict the world of sin,[67] to teach,[68] to testify about Christ,[69] to comfort,[70] and to guide. The Holy Spirit is God’s present means of working in His people.[71] Upon regeneration all believers are baptized by the Holy Spirit and placed into the body of Christ. [72] There is no second baptism of the Spirit although believers can be filled by the Spirit through their obedience.[73] The Holy Spirit gives gifts[74] to each believer to serve the body of Christ,[75] although the revelatory gifts and confirmatory gifts have ceased.[76]


Mankind is a creature created by God in His image, [77] and given life by Him.[78] Adam and Eve were real humans first created on the sixth day of creation[79] to dwell in perfection in the Garden of Eden.[80] However, they willfully sinned against God[81] and incurred the curse.[82] All subsequent descendants have inherited condemnation[83] and a sin nature.[84] Sin is lawlessness[85] which has caused all[86] people separation from God.[87] The wages of sin is death.[88] The old nature of man includes being spiritually dead,[89] unable to discern the work of God,[90] and in slavery to sin.[91] Because all men have sinned, they all deserve punishment for their sins in hell.[92] Man, in his sinful state, is utterly unable to know God or be reconciled to Him.[93] Yet God has seen fit to foreordain[94] the election[95] of some men to praise Him throughout eternity.[96]


God has foreordained some people for salvation[97] based only upon His goodness and will and not because of anything that we had done or would do.[98] Salvation begins with the foreordination of God, but God’s people first begin to experience salvation when they are regenerated. Regeneration is the transformation of a person’s spirit from death to life so that his intellect[99], will, and emotions[100] now obey the Lord. Salvation is a gift of God because of His grace[101] that results in regeneration[102] by Him[103] through the washing and renewal[104] of the Holy Spirit[105] manifested as faith in Christ.[106] Those who are saved are sealed,[107] are indwelt by the Holy Spirit,[108] and are promised[109] that they are heirs[110] of eternal life. [111] In his spiritually dead state[112], man does not seek after God. Hence there are no true "seekers" [113] because all men are unable to come to God unless God draws them to Himself. [114] Once a person become regenerated, the old man is fully crucified [115] and he has been given a new nature.[116] An order of salvation is presented as following these phases: 1) God predestined some for salvation[117], 2) God called those who were predestined[118], 3) God regenerated those whom He called, 4) God granted those who are regenerated to have fruit evidenced in belief and repentance[119], 5) God justified them on the basis of their faith, 6) God sanctifies them by obedience, and finally 7) God glorifies them upon entering into heaven.

Election, Atonement and Perseverance of the Saints

The basis of salvation is upon the perfect atoning blood of Christ[120] which was shed for all humanity[121] and has propitiated God.[122] Yet some people[123] have been especially[124] called by God to be redeemed,[125] justified,[126] forgiven,[127] and cleansed from sin.[128] This saved believer is progressively[129] sanctified by God[130] through the work of the Holy Spirit[131] as the believer faithfully obeys the Lord.[132] Although perfect sanctification will not occur in this life[133] and the believer awaits[134] being sanctified by Christ,[135] the true believer will persevere[136] until the end.[137]



The church the body of Christ[138] made up of individual[139] believers[140] in the Lord Jesus Christ,[141] who have been made alive by the Holy Spirit.[142] Although separate from Israel,[143] the church is a partial participator[144] in the New Covenant[145] yet to be fully realized[146] until the time of the Gentiles is over.[147] The church exists as God's servants[148] to testify[149] of the Gospel, make disciples of Christ,[150] and be God’s pillar which supports Truth in the world.[151] It is to be built up in Christ for the purpose of walking in the good works which God has prepared beforehand.[152] Christ has instituted two ordinances to be observed by the church until His return: believer's[153] baptism[154] by immersion[155] and the Lord's Supper.[156]


Satan is a fallen angelic being[157] who will one day be shut in and sealed in the abyss,[158] and await eternal punishment in the lake of fire.[159] Although he has already been judged, [160] he is currently active in the world as the prince of the air over the world[161] often manifesting himself as an angel of light—hence he and his forces are behind many modern movements which appear "good" to the world but are contrary to the express purposes of God.[162] He blinds the minds of men,[163] takes advantage of sinful weaknesses of a person,[164] entices people to believe false doctrines,[165] accuses believers,[166] and attempts to hinder the work of God's servants.[167] Although he is not at all omnipresent, [168] his demonic servants are numerous[169] and work according to his own evil schemes,[170] although some have already been bound and await judgment in pits of darkness.[171] Yet Satan has already been rendered powerless by the death of the Lord[172] for the believer who has been given authority[173] over Satan—not to "rebuke" Satan but to rather resist him by submitting to God[174] through the justifying blood of Christ.[175] Modern day manifestations of demonic activity include psychic fortune-telling,[176] some forms of mental illnesses,[177] and witchcraft[178] and magic.[179]

Last Things

On a day[180] or hour[181] not known, Jesus Christ will seal up the church age with His bodily return from the sky together with His holy ones, gather the elect[182] and establish His literal, 1000 year reign.[183] After the millennial reign, the Lord will usher in the New Jerusalem[184] where all the elect will dwell with Christ[185] forever in eternal praise and worship of the Lord.[186] Those whose names are written in the book of life will dwell in heaven, those who do not believe in Christ will dwell eternally in hell. [187] Just as the future blessings are blissful and conscious, likewise the future punishment will be miserable and also conscious.[188]
