What We Believe and Stand By

We believe that there is one God who manifests Himself in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. As God, none of the three persons of the Trinity were created, but rather each person of the Trinity existed from eternity past.  (John 1:1, Acts 5:4)

We believe in the inspiration of the Bible-both the Old and New Testaments. We believe that it is God’s complete written revelation.  (II Timothy 3:16)

We believe that God created the universe in six days, and that He created man directly, forming him from the dust of the ground. (Genesis 1:31-2:2, 2:7)

We believe in the incarnation and virgin birth of Jesus Christ.  (Isaiah 7:4)

We believe that although Jesus was man, He never ceased to be God.  (Philippians 2:6-11, John 8:58)

We believe that Jesus died on the cross for the sins of the world, and that he rose from the dead.  (John 3:16)

We believe that all believers, living and dead, will one day be snatched away from the earth, given a glorified body, and taken up “in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”  (I Thessalonians 4:17)

We believe that Jesus Christ will one day judge all men. Those who have committed their lives to Christ and accepted His free gift of salvation through His shed blood on the cross will spend an eternity with God. Those who have not committed their lives to Christ will spend eternity away from God in the Lake of Fire.  (II Corinthians 5:10, Revelation 20:11-15)

We believe in a literal Heaven and a literal Hell (and Lake of Fire). Every person ever born will spend a conscious eternity in one place or the other.   (Revelation 20:10, 15, Revelation 21:17)
