We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally inspired Word of God, the complete and final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible and God breathed (Matthew 5:18; John 16:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21, 19). We believe the Scriptures are to be interpreted in their natural, grammatical, cultural, historical, and literal sense, revealing divinely determined dispensations or rules of life which define man's responsibilities in successive ages. These are not ways of salvation, but rather means by which God directs man according to his purpose (John 1:17; 1 Corinthians 9:17; 2 Corinthians 3:9-18; Galatians 3:13-25; Ephesians 1:10; Ephesians 3:2-10; Colossians 1:24-25; Hebrews 7:19; Revelation 20:2-6).
We believe in one Triune God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—equal in being, nature, power and glory, and having the same infinite attributes and perfections such as eternality, omnipresence, omniscience, and omnipotence (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 46:9, 10; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 13:8).
We believe man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam's sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God, and of himself, is utterly unable to remedy his lost condition (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22-23; Romans 5:12; Ephesians 2:1-3, 12).
We believe salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by genuine faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins (John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; Ephesians 2:8-10; 1 Peter 1:18-19).
We believe every saved person possesses two natures, with provision made for victory of the new nature over the old nature through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit; all claims to the eradication of the old nature in this life are unscriptural. We believe all the saved should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord (Romans 6:13; Romans 8:12-13; Romans 12:1-2; Galatians 5:16-25; Ephesians 4:22-24; Colossians 3:10; 1 Peter 1:14-16; 1 John 3:5-9).
We believe it is the obligation of the saved to witness by life and word to the truths of Holy Scripture and to proclaim the gospel to all mankind (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 5:19-20).
We believe Satan is a created angelic being who rebelled against God and therefore sinned; he is the open and declared enemy of God and mankind; and he shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire (Job 1:6-7; Isaiah 14:12-17; Matthew 4:1-11; Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:10).
We believe in the "Blessed Hope," the personal and imminent coming of our Lord in the air for his saints, initiating a seven-year period of tribulation, followed by the return of Christ with his saints to the earth to establish his millennial kingdom (Titus 2:11-14; 1 Thessalonians 1:10; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Thessalonians 5:9; Revelation 3:10; Daniel 9:27; Revelation 19:11-21; Zechariah 14:4-11; Revelation 20:1-6).
