Statement of Belief
-In one GOD - Revealed as
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Triune in eternal existence.
-That Jesus Christ is
eternally one with the Father,
was incarnate by the Holy
Spirit, born of the Virgin
Mary, crucified, buried, risen,
and coming again to receive
His Church unto Himself.
-That the Old and New
Testament Scriptures given
by plenary inspiration,
contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.
- That man is born with a
fallen nature, and is
therefore, inclined to evil,
and that continually.
- That Jesus blood is sufficient
to provide forgiveness for all
sin.
Recognizing that the right and privilege of persons to the true Church rests upon the fact of their being regenerated, we would require only such beliefs as are essential to Christian experience. We therefore deem belief in the following brief statements to be sufficient. We believe :
- That the atonement through
Jesus Christ is for the whole
human race; and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and
regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin
-That believers are to seek being filled with the spirit subsequent to regeneration, as a second distinct experience, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
-That the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the fullness of His presence.
-That our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
     -That those who are saved
through faith in the risen Lord
and the merits of His broken
body and shed blood, will have
eternal life in heaven
-That the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost in hell.
