Doctrinal Statement:

1. We believe the scripture of the Old and New Testaments as inspired by God and inerrant in the original writing, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life. 2. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 3. We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man. 4. We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death; but also a spiritual death which is separation from God. All human beings are born with a sinful nature and sin in thought, word and deed. 5. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified only on the basis of His shed blood. 6. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and in His present life there for us, as High Priest and Advocate. 7. We believe in the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 8. We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God. 9. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the lost. 10. We believe that the spiritual unity of all true believers comprises the true Church. 11. We believe it is the commission of Jesus Christ to take the Gospel to every tribe and tongue and people and nation.
