What we believe…

We believe in Scripture’s inerrancy, infallibility, and verbal, plenary inspiration. We believe that God has kept His Word pure and has providentially preserved it throughout time to be the sole authority for faith and practice of all mankind. (We believe that for English speaking people, the King James Version is God’s Word and best reflects the original languages of God’s preserved Word.  We use the Fidela translation for Romanian and the Synodal translation for Russian.)

We believe in one holy, almighty, all-knowing, sovereign God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We believe that God created all that exists in six literal days and continues to be actively involved in His creation.

We believe that man was created perfect and without sin. We believe that Adam, tempted by the fallen angel, Satan, chose to disobey God and brought sin and death into the human race.

We believe in the deity, virgin birth, sinless life, death, burial, bodily resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ into heaven.

We believe that the only means of salvation and reconciliation with God comes through repentance and personal faith in Christ and His atoning work on the cross and His resurrection.  Salvation is not merited through one’s good works, church attendance, or baptism.  Once a person accepts Jesus as his Lord and Savior, he is immediately born-again, a child of God, and is indwelt by the Holy Spirit. We believe that “whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” We reject both unbalances of Armenianism and Calvinism.

We believe that those who die lost shall suffer eternal punishment in hell, but the saved shall spend eternity in heaven.

We believe that the local church is God’s chosen tool for spreading the Gospel and instructing believers until Christ returns.

We believe in a pre-tribulational, pre-millenial rapture, a literal seven year tribulation, and a literal thousand year reign of Christ on earth.

We believe in separating from current trends, groups, and philosophies which undermine the authority and authenticity of the Bible and its teachings. This includes Neo-orthodoxy, Neo-evangelicalism, modern tongues movement, and the Ecumenical movement.
