Our Beliefs

Statement of Faith

1. The Bible

We believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God and to be free from error in the original manuscripts when all grammatical, historical, literary and cultural issues have been considered. We believe the Bible is the only God-given authority which man possesses; therefore, all doctrine, faith, hope, and all instruction for the church must be based upon and harmonize with the Bible.

2. God

We believe the Almighty, creator of Heaven and Earth who is Sovereign over all and rules over all.

3. Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus came to died for the sake of HIS own, called, chosen in HIM.  As it pertains to His humanity, Jesus was born of a virgin in time. 

4. The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is at work in the hearts of the believers, primarily as He relates to mankind in our adoption as children of God and in our sanctification.

5. Salvation

We believe that salvation is based solely on the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ and is completely an undeserved gift of God. The Biblical experience of salvation consists of: faith, repentance, baptism in water by immersion. We do NOT believe in Baptismal Regeneration. 

6. The Second Coming

We believe that Jesus died for our sins, was resurrected and ascended into heaven where he presently reigns as High Priest. We also believe in a literal, bodily return of Jesus Christ in His time, both to claim his bride and to execute vengeance on an unbelieving world.

7. Final Judgment

We believe there is coming a time when all who ever lived will stand before Jesus Christ to be judged and that all who are not saved will be cast into the lake of fire. We believe this judgment to be literal and eternal.

Purpose

The purpose of this site is not only to defend our doctrinal distinctives, but to provide scholarly discussions on all Biblical topics by individuals who are dedicated to truth. We do not represent the official position of any particular organization, but our doctrinal position is reflected in our Statement of Faith.

We hope to not only be defenders of truth against error, but discoverers of truth. On our theological journey to understanding, it is better to travel with hope and never arrive, than to settle prematurely. We realize the plethora of theological views being presented today, and strive for the truth, but all the while recognizing that we are only pilgrims on this great journey and challenge.

It has been our endeavor to maintain intellectual honesty with the Scriptures -- not allowing our biases to color the glasses through which we interpret God's unchanging Word. Rather we have attempted to the best of our abilities to have an "open-minded" approach to theology, realizing that truth is only capsulated in God Himself. Humans by nature are fraught with opinions as to the nature of truth, but we realize the weakness of our minds to encompass all truth and have perfect understanding, and we accept this with humility and honesty.
