WHAT WE BELIEVE
1. THE DIVINE AUTHORITY AND INSPIRATION OF THE SCRIPTURES
We believe that the God who inspired the Scriptures is powerful enough to preserve them in the manner for which He intended us to have them. We believe in the providential PRESERVATION of the true word of God, as well as the providential INSPIRATION of the word of God; and that the purpose of this is to preserve the infallibility of the inspired original text. We believe that the providential preservation of the New Testament concentrated itself on the Greek text within the sphere of the Greek Church through Antioch of Syria; and that the text of the majority of manuscripts from this area is the providentially preserved and AUTHORIZED text; the text of the majority is the standard text. This text is the Textus Receptus of the Syrian (Byzantine) extraction coming to the English speaking people through the reformation of the Balkans and Germany. The final and outstanding representative of this text is the Authorized King James Version, A.V. 1611, which represents a purified, neutral, inerrant text (Beza’s fifth edition with improvements over Erasmus). We also believe the A.V. 1611 to be the absolute, final, sole authority in all matters of life, faith and practice, (Psalm 12:6-7, II Peter 1:17-21, II Timothy 3:16-17, Deuteronomy 8:3, Matthew 24:35).
2. THE TRINITY
We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; and that these three are one God, having precisely the same nature, attributes and perfection, and are worthy of precisely the same homage, confidence, and obedience. (Mark 12:29, John 1:1, 14, Matthew 28:19, I John 5:7, II Corinthians 13:14, Hebrews 1:1-3, Revelation 1:4-6).
3. THE DEITY AND VIRGIN BIRTH OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST AND HIS PLACE IN THE SCRIPTURES
We believe in the Deity and the Virgin Birth of our Lord Jesus Christ; and that all the Scriptures from the first to the last, center about Him, in His person and work, and in His first and second coming; and hence that no chapter, even of the Old Testament is properly read or understood until in leads to Him. (Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 1:26-27, 24:44, John 3:16-18, 35-36, Colossians 1:15-19, I Timothy 3:16, Isaiah 7:14).
4. THE PERSONALITY, DEITY AND PRESENT WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Holy Spirit as a Divine person is the source and power of all acceptable worship and service; and that He is our abiding Comforter and Helper; and that He never takes His departure from His church, nor from any of His saints, but is ever present to testify of Christ, seeking to occupy us with Him, and not ourselves or our experiences. (John 7:38-3, 14:16-17, 16:13-14, Acts 1:8, Romans 8:9, Philippians 3:3, Ephesians 1:12-14, 4:30).
