We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of
heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God
from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father.
Through Him all things were made. For us and for our
salvation He came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit He
became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man.
All mankind are sinners, inherently from Adam and
individually (by choice) and are therefore subject to Godís wrath and
condemnation consisting of death and casting into the lake of fire for all
Man's ONLY hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ. This
causes us to enter the family of God by an experience called the "New Birth"
as Jesus taught Nicodemus.
That while we were yet sinners, Jesus was crucified
thereby undergoing a substitutionary death on the cross in your stead and in
mine as He died our death in atonement for our sins to satisfy Godís
That for anyone who believes this, He grants eternal life
with HIM in heaven;
That for all who chose not to believe, will have to meet
Godís perfect standards without Him which is impossible;
That they will thereby be cast into the lake of fire for
all eternity where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Those who do
not believe in Christ are subject to everlasting conscious punishment, but
believers enjoy eternal life with God.
Salvation is a gift received by faith alone in Christ
alone and expressed in the individualís repentance, recognition of the death
of Christ as full payment for sin, and acceptance of the risen Christ as
Saviour, Lord and God.
Under Pontius Pilate Jesus was so crucified, died and was
buried. He descended into Abrahamís Bosom; On the third day He rose again in
accordance with the Scriptures; He ascended into heaven and is seated at the
right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the
dead, and His kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the
Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father. We believe in the
Lord's rapture of His Church off the face of this earth before the coming
With the Father and the Son He is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy universal living
Church. We acknowledge baptism of the Holy Spirit for the forgiveness of
sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to
We believe in satan, that those cast into the lake of fire
will burn there for all eternity and not ever be consumed thereby remaining
in fire and separated from God forever. Satan is the personal spiritual
adversary of both God and man.
We believe that all of scripture in the 66 books of the
bible are God breathed and as such are the inerrant Word of God, that Jesus
IS the Word of God.
Freedom from the penalty and power of sin is available to
man only through the sacrificial death and shed blood of Jesus Christ, and
His complete and bodily Resurrection from the dead.
All things necessary for our salvation are set down in
The Holy Spirit lives and works in each believer to
produce the fruits of righteousness.
The final guide to the interpretation of Scripture is the
Holy Spirit of God. □
