DOCTRINAL STATEMENT

1. We believe that the Bible (all 66 books contained therein) is the Inspired Word of God. It did not come by the will of men, but "holy men of God spoke as they were borne along by the Holy Spirit". II Peter 1:20 & 21; II Timothy 3: 15-17. Every word in the original manuscripts, was Divinely inspired.

2. We Believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit - and that these three are One God; having precisely the same nature, attributes and perfections, and worthy of precisely the same worship, confidence and obedience.

3. We believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, His Virgin Birth through which He entered the human race, His sinless life, His death on the cross and the shedding of His precious blood to make atonement for sin, His literal physical Resurrection from the dead, His present High Priestly work in heaven, on behalf of all the Body of Christ, His literal pre-trlbulatlon return to Rapture the Church and His literal pre-millennial return to reign for 1000 years in Jerusalem.

4. We believe that man was created prefect by God in the persons of Adam and Eve, but that they disobeyed God and thus became sinners in nature and practice and that their sinful nature has been passed on into the entire human race. Because of this, the entire human race is in need of being forgiven, cleansed and brought back into a right relationship with God. The Bible says that they "must be born again". Only those who personally receive Jesus Christ into their lives as Saviour experience this New Birth. All such are made members of God's Family and are sealed forever by the in-dwelling presence of the Holy Spirit of God. Salvation is by the grace of God through faith and it cannot be attained by human effort or merit. Spiritual growth is dependent upon a right relationship to the Holy Spirit.

5. We believe in the reality of spiritual beings (good and evil) known as angels. Evil angels have as their leader, Satan, better known as the devil. He is basically responsible for all evil. The ultimate destiny of Satan and his associates is the Lake of Fire. Good angels have their primary abode in Heaven and are sent forth from there to minister to "those who shall be heirs of salvation". All angels, both the good and the evil, are divided into various orders or groups.

6. We believe that the Church, the Body of Christ, is made up of all born-again believers from the time of Pentecost until the Rapture. However, the local Church is the only visible manifestation of the whole invisible Body. The local Church has had committed to it, two ordinances - Believer's baptism by immersion and the observance of the Lord's  Supper. The local Church is composed of regenerated, immersed believers, united for the purpose of worship, Christian work and the reproducing of themselves through soul-winning. The local Church is independent and self-governing and is responsible to Christ Jesus alone. The local Church should be separated from Modernism, Ecumenism and Worldliness.

7. We believer in a literal Heaven and a literal Hell. Hell in its ultimate state is known as the Lake of Fire, where the devil and his angels and all unregenerate mankind will have their final and eternal abode. The redeemed of all ages, will spend their final and eternal abode with Christ in the New Heavens and the New Earth.
