We believe that the Creator, the triune God of the Bible, has revealed Himself to mankind through the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. All of the Bible is “God-breathed” and is profitable to us for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness. We believe that all are sinners by choice as well as by nature and that all are justly condemned by God to eternal punishment in the lake of fire. We believe there is only one way to have our sins forgiven, and that is through faith in the death and resurrection of the virgin-born Son of God, Jesus Christ. We believe that He rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is coming again before the Tribulation to receive every born-again believer unto Himself. He will then come bodily to the earth after the Tribulation to set up the kingdom that God promised to Israel.
God’s free gift of eternal life cannot be deserved nor earned by our good works. “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9). This is because... All of us are sinners by nature and by choice. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). This is serious because of what the Bible says about God: God is holy and righteous and therefore must punish sin. “The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked” (Nahum 1:3). But God is also loving and merciful. “For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You” (Psalm 86:5). Jesus Christ who is fully God, as well as fully man, died on the Cross as a substitute payment for our sins. Then on the third day after His crucifixion, He arose from the dead to show God’s justice was satisfied. “...God was manifested in the flesh...” (1 Timothy 3:16). “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God...” (1 Peter 3:18). God’s gift of eternal life is received by personally trusting Christ alone as your Savior from sin. “...If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).
