Statement of Faith

  1. The Scriptures Inspired
    The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the infallible guide of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason. 2 Tim. 3:15, 16: 1 Pet. 2:2.

  2. The One True God
    The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self existent, self revealed "I AM" and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association, i.e., as Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Deut. 6:4; Mark 12:29; Isa. 43:10, 11; Matt. 28:19.

  3. Man, His Fall and Redemption
    Man was created good and upright; for God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness." But man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ the Son of God. Gen. 1:26-31; 3;1-7; Rom. 5:12-21.

  4. The Salvation of Man
    Man was created good and upright; for God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness." But man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ the Son of God. Gen. 1:26-31; 3;1-7; Rom. 5:12-21.

    1. Conditions to Salvation.
      The grace of God, which bringeth salvation, hath appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ; man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost, and, being justified by grace through faith, he becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 2:11; Rom. 10:13-15; Luke 24:47: Titus 3:5-7.

    2. The Evidence of Salvation.
      The inward evidence, to the believer of his salvation, is the direct witness of the Spirit. Rom. 8:16. The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness. Matt. 5:16.

  5. The Church
    The Church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the General Assembly and Church of the First-born, which are written in heaven. Eph. 1:22, 23, 2:22; Heb. 12:23.

  6. The Blessed Hope
    The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and blessed hope of the Church. 1 Thess. 4:16. 17; Rom. 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Cor. 15:51, 52.

  7. The Lake of Fire
    The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life. shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone which is the second death. Rev. 19:20; Rev. 20:10-15.

  8. The New Heavens and New Earth
    We, "according to His promise look for new heavens and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness." 2 Peter 3:13; Rev. 21, 22.
