What We Believe

2.01 - The Holy Scriptures

We believe the Holy scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally inspired Word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible, and God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Matthew 5:18; John 14:26; 16:12-13).

2.02 - The Godhead

We believe in one triune God eternally existing in three persons -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections (Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

2.03 - The Person and Work of Jesus Christ

(a) We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men (John 1:1-2, John 1:14; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6, 7:14; Philippians 2:5-8).

(b) We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through his death on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and, that our justification is made sure by his literal, physical resurrection from the dead (Romans 3:23-25; 1 Peter 1:3-5; 2:24; Ephesians 1:7).

(c) We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the offices of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate (Acts 1:9-10; Hebrews 9:24; 7:25; Romans 8:34; and
1 John 2:1-2).

2.04 - The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit

(a) We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and that He is the supernatural agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption (John 16:8-11; 2 Corinthians 3:6; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:13-14).

(b) We believe that He is the divine teacher who assists believers to understand and appropriate the Scriptures and that it is the privilege and duty of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit (1 John 2:20; 1 John 2:27; Ephesians 5:18).

2.05 - The Total Depravity of Man

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam's sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and that man is himself utterly unable to remedy his lost condition (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22-23; Ephesians 2:1-3, 12).

2.06 - Salvation

We believe that salvation is the free gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins (Ephesians 2:8-10; John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:18-19; John 3:16).

2.07 - Separation

We believe that all the saved should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord; and, that separation from all religious apostasy, all worldly and sinful pleasures, practices and associations is commanded of God (2 Timothy 3:1-5; Romans 12:1-2; 14:13; 1 John 2:15-17; 2 John 9-11; 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1).

2.08 - The Second Advent of Christ

We believe in the personal and visible return of Christ for His church  (Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Titus 2:13).

2.09 - The Eternal State

(a) We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment (Matthew 25:46; John 5:28-29; 11:25-26; Revelation 20:5-6, 12-13).

(b) We believe the souls of the redeemed are, at death, absent from the body and immediately present with the Lord, where in conscious bliss they await the first resurrection, when spirit, soul, and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord (Luke 23:43; Revelation 20:4-6; 2 Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:23; 3:21; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).

(c) We believe that the souls of unbelievers remain, after death, in conscious misery until the second resurrection, when with soul and body reunited, they shall appear at the Great White Throne Judgment, and shall be cast into the lake of fire, not to be annihilated, but to suffer everlasting conscious punishment for their sins (Luke 16:19-26; Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:11-15).

2.10 - The Personality of Satan

We believe that Satan is a fallen angel, the author of sin, and the cause of the fall of man; that he is the open and declared enemy of God and man; and that he shall be eternally punished in the lake of fire (Job 1:6-7; Isaiah 14:12-17; Matthew 4:2-11; 25:41; Revelation 20:2).

2.11 - Other Beliefs of Specific Interest

(a) We believe that to add to, subtract from, twist, or change the Bible, or to intentionally take the words of the Bible out of context for man's own purposes is an act of heresy, and that those who do such things are heretics and not true believers.

(b) We believe that everything in the Bible is absolute truth and relevant to our lives today, tomorrow, and forever.

(c) We believe that the redemption of our sins took place at the point of Jesus' death on the cross.

(d) We believe that while man was created by God, and in the image of God, man is not God, and cannot become God.

(e) We believe that faith is simply the complete trust and firm belief in God, who cannot be physically perceived, but is very much alive and active in the spiritual life of each of His followers. Faith is a belief, not a force, and has no power to create or to change the mind or actions of God.

(f) We believe that the Holy Bible consists of exactly 66 books, 39 from the Old Testament, and 27 from the New Testament.

2.12 - Extent of Our Faith

The foregoing statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our faith. The Bible itself is the sole and final source of all that we believe. We do believe, however, that the foregoing statement of faith provides a true representation of the teaching of the Bible, and therefore, is binding upon all persons serving or served by the Corporation.
