PHILOSOPHY AND OBJECTIVES (Bylaws, Article 1)

STATEMENT OF FAITH

1.   We believe:
that there is only One True Holy God (Isa. 45:5,6,21)
who is eternal, all-wise, all-powerful, (Psa. 1,2)                     
everywhere present, unchanging, (Psa. 139)
existing as Father, Son, and Spirit. (I Tim.2:5,6)

2.  We believe:
that the Bible is the Self-revelation                         
of God to  mankind for this age; (Heb.1:1,2)
that it is fully inspired by the Holy Spirit; (II Tim. 3:14-17)
that it is inerrant in its original writings, (I Pet. 1:19-21)
authentic in its records, (John 17:17)
authoritative in its decrees,  (Matt. 5:17,18)
universal, timeless in its message, (Psa.119:89)         
the standard by which all shall be judged. (Rom. 2:14-16)

3.  We believe:
that the Triune God is the Creator of all things,visible and invisible; (Col.1:15,16)
that the Genesis account of creation is true; (Gen. 1:1-31)
that man through disobedience fell from his position of innocence; (Gen. 3:1-24)
that all people need the mercy of God, offered in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. (Rom. 5:12-21)

4.  We believe:
that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, (Matt.1:16-25)
by a miracle was born of (Lu. 1:26-33)
the Virgin Mary as her firstborn; (Lu. 2:1-7)
that by this He is fully God and fully man; (Phil. 2:5-8)
that He will perfect the complete reconciliation of all believers; (II Cor. 5:17-21)       
effect the universal restoration of all things (Eph. 1:1-14)
by His sinless earthly life, (Heb. 4:14,16)
His atoning death on the cross by the shedding of His blood, (Heb. 9:22-28)
His literal bodily resurrection from the dead,  (I Cor.15:1-26)
His confirming ascension to the right hand of God (Heb. 1:3-14)
His present-day ministry of intercession  for believers, (Heb. 7:25-28)
His personal return to earth. (Rev. 19:11-21)

5. We believe:
that the Holy Spirit was sent and came upon the disciples at Pentecost; (Acts 2:1-4, 38,39)
that all who repent of their sin through faith in Jesus Christ receive the Holy Spirit; (I Cor.12:1-3)
that He indwells, cleanses, leads,  (John 14:16-18)
and enables believers to live and witness to the glory of God. (John 16:13,14)

6. We believe:
that the church is composed of all and only those who truly repent of
their sins and believe in Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord; (I Cor. 6:9-11)
that by the Holy Spirit, in harmony with the Holy Scriptures,
true believers live a holy life; (Col. 3:12-17)
that all such make up the body and bride of Christ. (Eph. 4:11-16)

7.   We believe:
that the Christian Life is total commitment to the Lordship of Christ; (Luke 9:23-26)
that every Christian is entrusted by the Lord with the stewardship
of the Gospel; (Matt  28:16-20)
that Christians will conduct their affairs consistent with this commitment
and entrustment so that all they areand have contributes to the spread of the Gospel. (I Pet. 1:13-23)

8.   We believe:
that there is a personal Devil who is the arch-enemy of God, and all good; (Gen. 3:1-5)
that he is seeking to deceive all people and take them to eternal ruin; (Job 1:6-22)
that during the time immediately before the rapture of the true church (II Cor. 11:13-15)
he will lead many into apostasy and unbelief; (II Pet. 2:1-3)          
that conditions in the church and in the world indicate that we  now live in such times; (II Tim. 3:1-13)
that during the great tribulation he will raise up the Antichrist (Rev. 13:1-18)
through whom he will effect a world-wide rebellion against God ( II Thes. 2:1-12)
which will be put down by the personal,bodily return of Christ. (Rev. 19:11-21)


9.    We believe:
that there will be a bodily return of Jesus Christ for His bride, the Church, at which time all believers who have
died will be resurrected and all living believers will be changed; (Cor. 15:50-57   I Thes. 4:13-18)
that after the destruction of the apostate church and the world-wide rebellion (Rev. 18:2-6)
led by the Antichrist, (Rev. 13:1-18)   
and the binding of Satan, (Rev. 19:19-21)            
Jesus Christ will reign (Rev. 20:1-6)           
as King of kings and Lord of lords until He has put down all authority; (I Cor. 15:22-26)
that at the end of His reign He will deliver the kingdom over to God the Father. (I Cor. 15:27-28)

10.  We believe:
that there will be the Final Judgment in which God will condemn the devil to the lake of fire (Rev. 20:9,10)
along with all who have not believed in Jesus Christ, where they will suffer eternal punishment; (Rev. 21:8)
that all believers, by the grace of God will enjoy forever the presence of (Rev. 21:1-7)                   
God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with all the angels in the new heaven
and the new earth wherein dwells righteousness. (II Pet.3:13,14)
