What We Believe – Our Statement of Faith

We believe in the essential truths of the historic orthodox (biblical) Christian faith. These truths include:

  • On the nature of God, we believe in the Trinity—one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Christian Cram Course).
  • On the nature of man, we believe that all men are inhererently sinful and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:3).
  • We believe that salvation from God's wrath, death, and the power of sin is the comforting free gift of God, given by grace through a living, trusting, penitent faith (Luke 24:47; Ephesians 2:8-9, James 2:14-17) in Jesus Christ (John 14:6).
  • We believe that Jesus is the Son of God and the one-and-only savior of sinners (Jesus). The gospel is the perfect life, atoning death, and resurrection of Jesus for the salvation of all who believe (Romans 1:16-19; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4).
  • We believe that the Bible is the final authority on faith and life—that it is a magnificent and unique document, truly inspired by God through human writers (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
  • We believe that the Bible has answers for today's problems—that every man, woman, or child will benefit by getting to know Jesus. Followers of Jesus will have a better life on earth (John 10:10) and eternal life in heaven (John 3:16).
  • We believe that good works are a natural result of an authentic saving faith (Ephesians 2:10; James 2:26). Thus, being a Christian leads one to be a blessing to society (Mark 12:31), to influence it (Matthew 5:13-16), to be enthusiastic (Romans 12:11), and to bring others the good news of the gospel (Matthew 28:19-20).
  • We believe that the Christian faith is not mere blind faith but faith in evidence (Acts 1:3; Acts 17:17; 1 Corinthians 15:5-8), which should be explained lovingly to others (1 Peter 3:15).

Concerning the so-called "last days" or "end times," the writers of New Testament spoke with one voice that THEY were living in the last days predicted by the prophets. We are persuaded that the "end times/last days" are not the end of history or of the end of the Christian age. Rather, the last days were the end of the old covenant age, which was passing away in the first century (Hebrews 8:13).  We do not have to fear the great tribulation, as that was a past event about the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple in AD 70. See also Daniel 12:4-13; Matthew 21:33-45; 23:29-39; 24:2, 3,14, 34; Luke 21:22, 32; Acts 2:14-20; 1 Corinthians 7:29, 31; Hebrews 1:2; 9:26; 1 Peter 1:20; 4:7, and 1 John 2:17-18.

We reject the aberrant doctrines of millennialism, fideism, nominalism, antinomianism, liberalism, legalism, and universalism. (We are also skeptical of most modern manifestations of tongues, the "Word-Faith Movement," and such things as "slain in the spirit.")

Note: This is an abbreviated list of essential Bible truths. For more detail, see our article Christian Cram Course. For more on eschatology (biblical end-times prophecy), see our two-part article on The Biblical Days.
