doctrinal statement

 

The Scriptures

We believe in the verbal plenary inspiration of the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments.  We believe they were inspired by God, are inerrant in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life. We believe that in the Textus Receptus we have a faithful and accurate copy of the original writings, and that the Authorized Version (King James Version) is an accurate translation of this text. Further, we hold the position that the Bible is infallible in every matter of which it speaks. It is absolutely trustworthy in facts of science and history, as well as in doctrine.

The Godhead

We believe in one triune God, eternally existing in three Persons (the Father, Son and Holy Spirit) co-equal in power and glory, and that they are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.

The Father

We believe that God the Father:

  1. 1)is the Creator and Preserver of all things.

  2. 2)is the first Person of the Trinity.

  3. 3)is completely sovereign and His ways are past finding out.

  4. 4)is omnipresent, omniscient and knows the thoughts and intentions of the hearts of all men.

  5. 5)is omnipotent and is an infinite, personal Spirit.

  6. 6)is perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love.
