"Where Children Are A Blessing"
WHAT WE TEACH
That the Holy Spirit did so inspire, guide and move the writers of Holy Scripture as to keep the original writings free from all error; that the existing translations are properly regarded as the supreme and final authority in faith and life.
That there is one God existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, co-equal and co-eternal.
That man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and in the eyes of God, are sinners in thought, word and deed and consequently are unable to save themselves.
That Jesus Christ, although being the eternal Son of God, was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary and is thus true God and true Man. The miracles performed by our Lord Jesus Christ were a demonstration of His power, love and deity. He died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, and all who receive Him by faith and express repentance of their sins are justified on the basis of His shed blood. On the third day after His crucifixion, God the Father raised our Lord Jesus Christ from the dead; where He subsequently ascended into heaven, and now sits at the right hand of the Father, making intercession for the saints.
That our Lord Jesus Christ will return to this world. That there shall be a future day of resurrection in which both the redeemed and the damned shall be raised from the dead: the redeemed to enjoy eternal blessedness, and the damned to suffer eternal retribution.
That the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever and eternal life is a free gift that is received through faith in Jesus Christ alone. Eternal life is neither deserved by anyone, nor can it be earned by good deeds.
