The Bible is God’s inerrant Word to us, infallible as originally given by God through human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit, and is absolutely true and trustworthy. It is our only standard of faith and practice.
II Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12; II Peter I:20-21; Matthew 5:18; Psalm 119
God is the Creator and Sustainer of all things. He is infinite, eternal, unchangeable, and, is revealed to us as the Godhead existent in three co-equal, co-eternal, and consubstantial persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians I :3-6,13–14; Matthew 28:19; Genesis I :1,26,27; Genesis 3:22; Philippians 2:5-6; John I:1,3,14,18;
Man was created in innocence directly and immediately by God, in His spiritual image, for the purpose of fellowship with God and glory for God. Man was tempted by Satan and sinned, and because of this, all men have been born in sin since that time. Every person has tremendous potential for good, but all are marred by the nature of rebellion and disobedience toward God which the Bible calls sin. Sin separates us from God, others, and all good things, ultimately and eternally in hell. All persons need to be saved from sin.
Jesus Christ is the only Savior from sin. He provided forgiveness and atonement for our sins by shedding His blood on the cross and rose again to provide life and justification. Apart from Christ, there is no salvation. All men are under condemnation through personal sin, and deliverance from condemnation comes only by the righteousness of Christ and not human merit. This righteousness is credited to the believer by grace through faith. The Holy Spirit regenerates or gives new life to one who commits his life to Jesus, and is kept by God’s power forever, never to be lost.
A New Testament Church is a voluntary association of baptized believers in Christ who have covenanted together to follow the teachings of the New Testament in doctrine, worship, and practice. We believe that Willing Workers is a self-governed organization served by the Pastor and members thereof.
We believe in the imminent and bodily return of Jesus Christ on earth. The dead will be raised, and Christ will judge all men according to their works. Unbelievers will be cast into eternal punishment and outer darkness prepared for the devil and his angels who preceded them, and the saved will enter into the eternal state of glory with God and will, in their resurrected and glorified bodies, spend eternity.
Death involves no loss consciousness, but the soul of the redeemed passes immediately into the presence of Christ, and there is separation of soul and body until the first resurrection when the spirit, soul and resurrected body will be united in glorified form in heaven forever. All men will be bodily resurrected, the saved to everlasting life, but the lost to eternal condemnation.
