(Doctrinal Statement)


The sole basis of our faith and beliefs are in God's infallible and inerrant written Word, The Bible. We believe all 66 books of the Old and New Testaments were uniquely, verbally and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit and that it was written without error in the original manuscripts. It is the supreme and final authority in all matters of Christian faith and doctrine.

We accept those areas of doctrinal teaching on which, historically, there has been general agreement among all true Christians. The historic Christian doctrines of the church which we outline below are the basis of our doctrinal statement of faith. We feel there are areas of peripheral doctrine, such as, the timing of the rapture, mode of baptism, and others that Christians may differ on that are not essential doctrines to salvation, that we allow for freedom of conviction on, provided that any interpretation is based upon the Bible alone.

1) There is one true and living God, eternally existing in three persons -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality.

2) Jesus Christ is God, the living Word, who became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. Hence, He is perfect Deity and true humanity united in one person forever.

3) He lived a sinless life and voluntarily atoned for the sins of men by dying on the cross as their substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation for all who trust in Him alone for salvation.

4) He rose from the dead on the third day, in the same body, though glorified, in which He lived and died.

5) He ascended bodily into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father, where He, is the only mediator between God and man, continually makes intercession for those who put their faith in him for salvation.

6) Man was originally created in the image of God. He sinned by disobeying God; thus, he was alienated from his Creator. That historic fall brought all mankind under divine condemnation.

7) Man's nature is corrupted, and he is thus totally unable to please God. Every man is in need of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit.

8) The salvation of man is wholly a work of God's free grace and is not the work, in whole or in part, of human works or goodness or religious ceremony. God imputes His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, and thereby justified them in His sight.

9) Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, His Body, which is composed of all men, living and dead, who have been joined to Him through saving faith.

10) The Lord Jesus Christ commanded all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to disciple men of every nation. The fulfillment of that Great Commission requires that all worldly and personal ambitions be subordinated to a total commitment to "Him who loved us and gave Himself for us."


We hold to the pre-tribulation, pre-millennial dispensational system of theology. We believe in the imminent return of our Lord for His Church (The Rapture), to be followed first by a period of judgment (The Great Tribulation) and then His final return to Earth with His church to Rule and reign for 1000 years (The Millennium).

That mankind is hopelessly lost due to sin and, destined for destruction, can only be saved by the completed work of the Lord on the cross through the regenerative power of the Holy Spirit. No amount of human effort or good work will suffice in lieu of this and none is required or necessary to supplement it.

That our salvation is laid up in heaven, free for the asking, granted to everyone without condition or prejudice, out of the incomparable riches of God’s grace.

That each human can, and indeed must, individually seek this salvation by choosing a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus.

That all who ask will receive, all who seek will find, and to all who knock the door will be opened. It is our Father’s will that all who look to His Son will be saved.

That once this relationship is sought and granted it can never be revoked or relinquished. Having been granted irrespective of merit, it will be preserved in like manner.

That the only true church is that invisible body of believers from all walks of life and every denomination and faith who have trusted Him and only Him for their redemption.
