Inerrancy of Scripture: We believe that the Bible ("Scripture") is a copy of the literal,
inerrant, infallible words of God (II Timothy 3:16), which is preserved for the English speaking
people in the Authorized Version, also known as the 1611 King James Bible ("AV 1611"), and is
not subject to our own opinions or private interpretation (II Peter 1:20-21), but is our final
authority in all matters of faith, practice & life.
Truth of Scripture: We believe that every word of Scripture is truth (John 17:17).
Sufficiency of Scripture: We believe that the Bible is complete and sufficient for all matters
of life (Jude 1:3, and II Timothy 3:16,17), and that it can not be added to or taken away from
by any new revelation (Revelation 22:18-19), until Jesus Christ returns and brings believers
into His presence (John 14:3), and unbelievers at His Second Coming (I Thessalonians 1:7,8).
God exists eternally in three persons: We believe that God the Father, God the Son, and
God the Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit) together are one God, having the same nature, attributes,
and perfection (John 10:30, 36; John 1:1, 14; 1John 5:7, Matthew 3:16, 17).
Jesus Christ is God: We believe in the absolute Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ (Isaiah
9:6-7)- In His Virgin birth (Matt.1:23), His perfect humanity "was in all points tempted like as
we are, yet without sin" (Hebrews 4:14-15); His vicarious death through the shedding of his
blood for the forgiveness of the sins of all who will receive Him (Col. 1:12-22); His bodily
resurrection (Matt. 28:6, Acts 2:24, I Corinthians 6:14, II Corinthians 4:14) and ascension(Acts
1:10-11); His present high priestly ministry (Hebrews 7:22-28, Hebrews 1:1-3, 1 Tim.2:5), and
in the imminence of His literal and premillenial return." (I Thess. 4:13-17)
God is Creator: We believe that the triune God of the Bible is Creator of everything that is
seen and unseen (Genesis 1:1,2, John 1:1, 14, and Colossians 1:16, 17).
