Doctrinal Statement

I      We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God, and that He has preserved it for the English-speaking world in the Authorized Version of 1611, the King James Bible.  We therefore conclude that the King James Bible is unequivocally the inspired, inerrant and infallible Word of God.

II     We believe that there is one God, the source, support and end of all things, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

III     We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father’s right hand, and His personal, pretribulational, premillennial return for His saints at the rapture, and His personal return with his saints at the Revelation.

IV     We believe that man is totally depraved, a sinner both by nature and practice, therefore estranged from God, totally lost and in need of the convicting and regenerating ministry of the Holy Spirit – a born again experience.

V     We believe in the personality of Satan, in his power and kingdom, in his wiles and in his judgment at the cross and his eternal destruction in hell.

VI     We believe in the deity and present ministry of the Holy Spirit, that He convicts the sinner, regenerates the one who believes, indwells, seals, instructs, reproves and guides the believer, that He fills and controls every life that is wholly yielded to Him.

VII     We believe that salvation is the free gift of God offered to man by His grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, plus nothing.

VIII     We believe in the bodily resurrection of the saved unto “life” and the unsaved unto “judgment” and everlasting damnation. We believe in a literal heaven with golden streets and a literal hell with fire and brimstone.

IX     We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, not in the organized unity sought by the ecumenical movement.

X     We believe in the local church which is a body of baptized believers who come together in obedience to Christ to carry out the dictates of the New Testament.

XI     We believe in and practice both ecclesiastical and personal separation on the basis of the Word of God.
