What We Believe
We believe that God is the one living and true God, that He has been revealed in nature as Creator, Preserver, and Righteous Governor of the Universe; and in the Scriptures as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; yet as one God. He is infinitely wise and good, whom all intelligent creatures are supremely to love, adore, and obey.
Christ is God manifest in the flesh; in His divine nature truly God, in His human nature truly man. The mediator between God and man, once crucified, He is now risen and glorified and is our ever-present Savior and Lord.
Scriptures assign to the Holy Spirit all the attributes of God.
We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament were given by inspiration of God, were “God-breathed” without error, and are our infallible rule of faith and practice.
God exercises a wise and benevolent providence over all beings and all things by maintaining the constitution and laws of nature. He also performs special acts, not otherwise provided for, as the highest welfare of men requires.
Man was created innocent, but by disobedience, fell into a state of sin and condemnation. His posterity, therefore, inherits a fallen nature of such tendencies that all who come to years of accountability sin and become guilty before God.
The Son of God by His incarnation, life, sufferings, death, and resurrection effected for all a redemption from sin that is full and free and is the ground of salvation by faith.
The conditions of salvation are (1) Repentance or sincere sorrow for sin and hearty renunciation of it. (2) Faith or the unreserved committal of one’s self to Christ as Savior and Lord with purpose to love and obey Him in all things. In the exercise of saving faith, the soul is renewed by the Holy Spirit, freed from the dominion of sin, and becomes a child of God. (3) Continuance of faith until death.
The human will is free and self-controlled, having the power to yield to the influence of the truth and the Spirit or to resist them and perish.
God desires the salvation of all, the Gospel invites all, the Holy Spirit calls all, and all may come and obtain salvation.
God determined before the beginning of time to save all who accept His gift of salvation. So, by faith in Christ, His followers become the elect.
The Scriptures teach the resurrection of all men on the last day. Those who by grace persevere in faith will come forth to the resurrection of life, and those who have rejected God’s grace unto the resurrection of condemnation; then the wicked will “go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
