Doctrinal Statement

[fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][fusion_accordion class=”” id=””][fusion_toggle title=”The Scriptures” open=”no”]I believe that the Bible containing a total of 66 Books, the Old Testament and the New Testament, without
error in the manuscripts and are inspired by God (II Tim 3:16). I believe that the Bible is the sole authority
for faith and practice. I believe that the Scriptures are designed for practical instructions. Through
Scriptures, God revealed Himself to the mankind (Romans 1:17-20; Eph 3:3-5).[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”The Godhead” open=”no”]I believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and
that these three are One God. I believe that there is only ONE living and true God, who is eternal, selfexisting,
perfect Spirit. He is a personal Being and the Creator of the universe.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”Decrees of God” open=”no”]I believe in the Decrees of God that God has an eternal purpose or purposes based on His most holy
counsel that He ordained everything to come to pass, for His own glory (Isaiah 14: 24, 26,27; Eph. 1:11).[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”The Creation” open=”no”]I believe that the Genesis account of creation is to be accepted literally and not figuratively. I believe that
the six days of creation mentioned in Genesis chapter one were solar hour days. I believe the creation of
mankind was done in the likeness and in the image of God. It did not evolve from something, but God
created the mankind. I believe that God did not use anything that pre-existed to create the whole universe,
but He spoke the universe into existence directly.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”The Angels” open=”no”]I believe in the existence of the angels and that they are spiritual beings, created by God at one time. I
believe that God created an innumerable company of sinless, spiritual beings. They serve Him in various
ways and are specially appointed to watch over and minister to God’s people (Heb. 1:6, 14; Matt. 25:41;
Eph. 6:12; Rev. 20:1-3, 10).[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”Depravity” open=”no”]I believe that man was originally created a sinless being. But he fell from that sinless state and, as a result
of his sin, he lost his spiritual life, becoming dead in trespasses and sins. Because of the sin that was
committed, all mankind are now sinners by nature and by conduct and are justly under divine
condemnation.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”The Lord Jesus Christ” open=”no”]I believe that Jesus Christ is the focal point of the entire Bible. I believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is both
truly God and truly man. His literal human body was miraculously conceived by the power of the Holy
Spirit, and He was born of a human mother who was a virgin. Jesus Christ was, is and will ever exist. He
has no beginning and no end. He is equal member of the Trinity.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”The Holy Spirit” open=”no”]I believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, co-equal with God the Father and God the Son. I believe
that He was active in creation. He convicts men of sin. He indwells each believer. He performs various
ministries such as, – guiding, teaching, sanctifying, and strengthening. I believe that each believer is being
sanctified by the continuing work of the Spirit, and ultimately at Christ’s coming will be completely
sanctified.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”The Salvation” open=”no”]I believe that no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born-again. Salvation is made free to all
by the Gospel. It is initiated by God and is accomplished by grace apart from any human works. It is the
duty of all to accept it by personal faith. Nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner except his
own voluntary refusal to accept Christ as Savior. I believe that all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are
forgiven, regenerated, and justified. The perfect righteousness of Christ is imputed to those that believe
Him. I believe that True believers are saved forever and can never loose their salvation. I believe that
Salvation is a free gift of God.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”The Church” open=”no”]I believe that the Church is the Body of Christ, and it is composed of all true believers who are placed into
that Body by the baptizing work of the Holy Spirit. I believe that the Church is distinct from Israel. I
believe that a local church is an organized congregation of immersed believers associated together by a
common faith and fellowship in the Gospel.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”The Ordinances” open=”no”]I believe that the two ordinances, the baptism and the Lord’s Supper should be practiced in a local Church
and they are the means of the testimony for the Church.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”The Lord’s Day” open=”no”]I believe that the first day of the week is the Lord’s Day, and is a Christian institution that is to be kept
sacred for spiritual purposes insofar as is possible on the part of the individual believer. It commemorates
the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead. It is a time for public worship and for spiritual
growth. I believe that all believers should give importance to that day.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”The Eternal Security” open=”no”]I believe in Eternal Security, because of the regenerating, and the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit in the
hearts of all who are saved shall be kept saved and safe forever.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”The Assurance” open=”no”]I believe it is the privilege, for all who are born again by the Spirit through faith in Christ as revealed in the
Scriptures, to be assured of their salvation from the very day they accept Him to be their Savior and that
this assurance is not founded upon any discovery of their own worthiness, but wholly upon the testimony of
God in His written Word. I believe that as believers and as His children we have that assurance.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”The Great Commission” open=”no”]I believe that the Great Commission is one of the most significant passages in the Bible. I believe that this
is a command from Jesus, and it is a personal instruction for Christians to have a profound faith in Him.
This is a call to all the believers to share the Good News of salvation through out the world and it is not just
the responsibility of a pastor.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”The Rapture” open=”no”]I believe that all the believers (the Church) will be carried away to heaven, before the great Tribulation (1
Thess. 4:13-18).[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”The Second Coming of Christ” open=”no”]I believe that the period of great Tribulation in the earth will come to an end by the return of the Lord Jesus
Christ to the earth just as He went, in person, on the clouds, with power and great glory. He will bind the
Satan and place him in the abyss. He will restore Israel. He will bring all the people to the knowledge of
God.[/fusion_toggle][/fusion_accordion][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
