OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH|
The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God.
(Ps. 119; Mat. 4:4; Lk. 24:27)
There is one God, eternally coexistent in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
In the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His Virgin Birth, in His Sinless Life, in His Miracles, in His Vicarious and atoning Death, in His Bodily Resurrection, in His Ascension to the Right Hand of the Father, in His personal future return to this Earth in Power and Glory to rule a thousand years.|
In the Blessed Hope--the Rapture of the Church at Christ's Coming.
The only means of being cleansed from sin is through Repentance and Faith in the Precious Blood of Christ.
Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal Salvation.
The Redemptive Work of Christ on the Cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer.
(Ex.15:25-26;James 5:14-15;I Pet.2:24)
The Baptism with the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to Believers who ask for it.
In the Sanctifying Power of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life.
In the Resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to Everlasting Life and the other to everlasting damnation.
GOD'S MANDATE FOR CHRISTIAN EDUCATION
"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."
"And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:" Deuteronomy 6:6)
"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."
"And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."
(ll Timothy 3:15-17)
"For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:"
"For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness "
(l Corinthians 3:19)
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction."
