The Bible

We believe the Bible is without error, that it is literally the Word of God that it was verbally inspired, and that it is the all-sufficient rule of our faith.  We believe the Scriptures is the prescription for practical Godly living.  We interpret the Bible literally and believe it is accurate, and complete.    (II Tim. 3:16, II Peter 1:20-21)


We believe in one God, that He is the creator and sustainer of the universe. Within the one essence of the Godhead, co-exist three persons: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit, who are co-equal and co-eternal. (Gen. 1:1, Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 5:3-4), Colossians 1:13-16, Hebrews 1:1-3.)


We believe man was created in the image of God, disobeyed Him, and thereby incurred spiritual death, which is separation from God.  Consequently the Adamic race will die physically because they are sinners by nature and practice.  
(Gen. 1:26-27, Romans 5:12-19, 7:15-21)

Jesus Christ

We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, His bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, and of His imminent return to establish His kingdom on earth.  
(Matt. 1:20-23, 2 Cor. 5:21, 1 Cor. 15:3-4, Acts 1:9, Rom. 8:34)


We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins as a vicarious, substiutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the basis of His shed blood, are born of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become the children of God.  
(Rom. 5:8-9, 1 Cor. 15:3, 2 Cor. 5:21, Rom. 3:24-26, John 5:11-13)

Last Things

We believe the order of the end-time events will be as follows:

1) a personal physical return of the Lord Jesus to rapture the church
2) a seven year tribulation period,
3)  the personal, visible return of Christ to the earth to establish His earthly kingdom which will last for one thousand years 
4)  then the final judgment and eternal state which includes the great white=throne judgment and the bema judgement of the Believers' works.
(1 Thes 5-9, Rev. 3:10, Matt 24:5-5, Rev 6:1-19, 21, Isaiah 11:1-20, Rev 19:11-21, 20:1-3, 11-15, 21:1-22:5)

"...I go to prepare a place for you, and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself that where I am , there ye may be also."

John 14:2-3 (KJV)
But the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.  Before this faith came, we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed.  So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith.  Now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law.  You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus,

Galatians 3:22-26
