Our Doctrinal Statement
The scriptures of the Old and New Testament are verbally inspired of God, and are inerrant in the original writings, and are of supreme and final authority in faith and practice (II Timothy 3:16).
There is ONE God, externally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:14; John 1:1; 14:16,17).
There is only one Scriptural baptism for members of the Body of Christ (Ephesians 4:5). This baptism is administered by the Holy Spirit and not by human hands (Colossians 2:11,12), and results in the permanent union of the believer as a member of the Church which is His Body. The ceremonial baptisms of the Bible are related to God’s earthly Kingdom concerning the nation Israel (Acts 2:38 ; 13:24), and therefore have no place in god’s today (I Corinthians 1:17).
Prayer, both as a means of communion and of petition, is the privilege and obligation of every believer. Prayer must be according to the will of God, and in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Philippians 4:6,7 ; I Thessalonians 5:17).
The blessed hope of the church is the imminent, personal, premillennial return of Jesus Christ to catch up into glory all of the members of His Body, both those who have died and those who are alive at His coming, to forever be with the Lord (Titus 2:13 ; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Corinthians 15:51,52 ). After the rapture of the Church to glory and after the time of Great Tribulation upon the earth, Christ will return to earth in power and great glory to reign as King of Kings over Israel and the nations (Revelations 19:11 ; 20:6). All the unsaved are without hope (Ephesians 2:12). They will be raised bodily to stand before the Great White Throne at the final judgment and will be cast into the lake of fire, which is the second death, where they will be tormented day and night forever and ever (Revelations 20:10-15).
