Articles of Faith


1. THE TRINITY

We believe that there is one God, existing in three person; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 33:27, John 1:1, and Hebrews 9:14)

2. VERBAL INSPIRATION OF THE BIBLE

We believe the scriptures of the Old Testament and New Testament are verbally inspired and preserved in the King James Version of 1611, and inerrant and infallible, and are of supreme and final authority in faith and life. (2 Tim. 3:16-17)

3. VIRGIN BIRTH

We believe that Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary, and is truly God made flesh. (Luke 1:35, 1 Tim. 2:5)

4. TOTAL DEPRAVITY

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but he sinned, and thereby incurred, not only physical death, but also that spiritual death which is separation from God. Consequently, all humans are born with a sin nature and a depraved nature. (Gen. 1:27, Psalms 51:5, and Romans 33:23, 5:12)

5. JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice and all who believe on him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. (1 Cor. 15:3 and Romans 3:24-25)

6. PERSON AND THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who reproves the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgement, who regenerates and baptizes all believers into the body of Christ which is the church, and who indwells, guides, and enlightens the individual believer. (John 16:8-11, 1 Cor. 12:12-13, 1 Cor. 6:19, and John 16:13)

7. EVERLASTING LIFE

We believe that all who by faith receives the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God and are recipients of everlasting life. (John 1:12-13, Romans 8:16, and 1 Peter 1:3-5)

8. RESURRECTION

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord and his ascension into Heaven and his present life there as High Priest and advocate for the saved. (Acts 2:32; 1:9-10, Heb. 4:14, and 1 John 2:1-2)

9. SECOND COMING

We believe in the rapture of the saved to meet Him in the air, and in the personal, visible, and glorious return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

10. ESCHATOLOGY

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost. (John 5:28-29, 1 Cor. 15:44, Romans 6:5, and Rev. 14:9-12; 21:8)

We believe that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, is a real person who deceives the world. (1 Peter 5:8 and Job 1:6-7)

We believe that all Christians are called into a life of separation to the Lord and to His joyous service and from worldly and sinful practices. (1 Thess. 1:9-10, 2 Cor. 6:17-18, and John 2:15-16)

13. MISSIONS

We believe that all Christians are obligated to witness by word and deed to these truths and to proclaim the gospel to all the world. (Matt. 28:19-20)
