We believe the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, to be the verbally inspired word of God as stated in 2 Peter 1:20-21 and 2 Timothy 3:16-17. They were God breathed to Holy men of old. Further, we believe, based upon Matthew 24:35 and other passages, that God has preserved His Word for English speaking people in the King James Version.
We believe in the Triune God, (Gen. 1:26, 3:22; Isa. 6:8; 1 Jn. 5:7).
We believe man did not evolve but was created by God, in the image of God, (Gen. 1:26). By an act of willful disobedience he plunged himself and the whole human race into sin, (Rom. 5:12). Man is totally depraved and dead in trespasses and sin, (Eph. 2:1). All men are sinners both by nature and by choice before a Holy God, (Rom. 3:10, 23). If one dies in this condition, he is eternally separated from God and punished forever in the lake of fire, (Rom. 6:23; Rev. 20:14-15).
We believe in a personal devil who was created perfect by an act of God and remained so until iniquity was found in him, (Ezek. 28:18). He was willfully rebellious because of pride, (Isa. 14:12-14), and thus was cast out of heaven, (Rev. 12:7-8). He now rules as prince of the power of the air and over the world system, (Eph. 2:2). He caused the fall of mankind, (Gen. 3:1-5), and today appears as an angel of light, (2 Cor. 11:14), and looks for those he may devour, (1 Pet. 5:8). He hates Christ and opposes the work of God but is limited in power by God, (Job 1:12). He is already judged and shall be confined to hell for eternity, (Rev. 20:10).
