WEBELIEVE in the second coming of Christ; the time being unrevealed but always imminent; that when He comes, He will, by resurrection of the dead and translation of the living, remove from the earth His waiting church, and pour out the righteous judgments of God upon the unbelieving world. Afterward, He will descend with His church and establish His glorious and literal kingdom over all the nations for a thousand years.
WE BELIEVE the spirits of the saved, at death, go immediately to be with Christ in Heaven; that at His second coming their works will be judged and rewards determined; that the spirits of the unsaved at death descend immediately into Hell until the final day of judgment, at which time they shall be judged according to their works and cast into the lake of fire, the place of final and everlasting punishment.
WE BELIEVE in the priesthood of all believers- that Christ, being our Great High Priest, grants to every born-again person direct access into God's presence without the need of a human mediator; We believe that the regenerated Christian has the soul competency to worship God, offering acceptable spiritual sacrifices, and has both right and responsibility to personally study and understand the Scriptures as guided by the Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE that a New Testament church is a local, visible, organized body of born-again baptized believers proclaiming the Gospel, practicing scriptural ordinances, and actively fulfilling the Great Commission.
WE BELIEVE that all human relationships are to be in agreement with God’s declared will, found in the Holy Bible. We accept as marriage only the consensual and sacred union of a man and a woman, in covenant with God as husband and wife, with the intent that the union should remain unbroken, and un-violated so long as both husband and wife shall live. We believe adultery, homosexuality, bisexuality, incest, pedophilia,and bestiality are perversions of God’s design for human relationships.
