STATEMENT OF FAITH

We rest our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ for our salvation and believe in the teaching and practices of an independent church in these great distinctive principles for which they have stood, by declaring the following to be a doctrinal of our faith.



WE BELIEVE IN

HOLY BIBLE - the Bible is the divine inspired word of God and that is the final authority in matters of faith and practices. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Psalms 12:6, Proverbs 30:5)

 

TRINITY - there is one God, who is a Trinity, or Trinity, of three distinct beings: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. (John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 28:19)

 

HOLY SPIRIT - the Holy Spirit is a Divine person as truly as God the Father and God the Son. (John 14:15-17; 16:5-15)

 

JESUS CHRIST - Jesus Christ is God the Son the Second Person of the Trinity. Jesus Christ is 100 percent God. (John 1:1, 14, 20, 28; I Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6)

 

VIRGIN BIRTH - Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit in the virgin Mary. (Matthew 1:18, 20, 23; Luke 1:27-35; Isaiah 7:14)

 

SALVATION - we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ; His death, burial, and resurrection. (Ephesians 2:1-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5)

 

CHRIST'S BLOOD - Jesus Christ lived a sinless life. His blood shed on the cross of Calvary is 100 percent sufficient to cleanse us of all sins through repentance and faith. (John 1:7; Revelations 1:5, 5:9; Col. 1:20)

 

REPENTANCE - is a commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Jesus Christ. (Acts 2:38, 3:19)

 

JESUS INDWELLS ALL BELIEVERS - a Christian is a person who has invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and live inside of him by the Holy Spirit. (John 1:2, 14:17, 23, 15:4; Romans 8:11)

 

WATER BAPTISM - the new convert is commanded by the Word of God to be Baptized in water in the name of the Lord Jesus. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38)

 

THE CHURCH - the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with the divine appointments for the fulfillment of Christ's great commission. (Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22: Hebrews 12:23)
