STATEMENT OF DOCTRINE
The Bible, cons1sbng of all the books of the Old and New Testaments, is the vVord of God, a supernaturally given revelation without error or misstatement in moral and spiritual teachings and record of historical facts.
There is one God, eternally existing and manifesting Himself to us m three Persons - Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Our Lord Jesus Christ was supernaturally conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived and taught and wrought mighty works and wonders and signs exactly as is recorded in the four Gospels, was put to death by crucifixion under Pontius Pilate, was raised from the dead in the body that had been nailed to the cross, now sits at the Father's right hand from whence He is coming again personally, bodily, and visibly to this earth to inaugurate His millennial reign. In His pre-existent state He was with God and was God, and of His own choice laid aside His divine glory and took upon Himself the form of a servant and was made in the likeness of men.
He became in every respect a real man, possessed of all the essential character istics of human nature.
By His death upon the cross, the Lord Jesus Christ made a pedect atonement for sin, redeeming us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse in our place.
The Holy Spirit is a Person, is God, and is possessed of all the distinctively divine attributes; He indwells all believers, having baptized them into the body of Christ at the time of regeneration.
Man was created in the image of God, but the whole human race fell m the sin of the first Adam, and apart from Christ is spiritually dead and lost.
Men are justified on the simple and single ground of the shed blood of Christ and upon the simple and single condition of faith in Him who shed the blood, and are born again by the Holy Spirit, through the instrumentality of the Word of God. All those who receive Jesus Christ as their Saviour and their Lord, and who confess Him as such before their fellow men become heirs of God and joint-heirs with Jesus Christ and at death their spirits depart to be with Christ in conscious blessedness, and at the second coming of Christ their bodies shall be raised and transformed into the likeness of the body of His glory. All those who persistently reject Jesus Christ in the present life shall be raised from the dead and throughout eternity exist in a state of conscious and endless torment. The Church consists of all those who, in this present dispensation, truly bel ieve on Jesus Christ and is the body and bride of Christ, which Christ loves and for which He has given Himself. There is a personal devil, a being of great cunning who can exert vast power only so far as God suffers him to do so, and who shall ultimately be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone. - Abridged. l2
