STAND STRONG Beliefs

God—The Originator (Ephesians 1:3-6)

We believe in one God, Creator of heaven and earth and all that exists, who is infinite Spirit, omnipotent, eternal, immutable, and indivisible.  We believe God has infallible knowledge of all things, including all future events and free choices. He is also infinitely unchangeable in His love, wisdom, justice, truth, and holiness.  God exists in one eternal essence in three distinct yet coequal Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Gen. 1:1; Ex. 6:3; 15:11; Deut. 6:4; 33:27; 1 Kgs. 8:27; Job 42:2; Ps. 147:5; 103; 115:3; Isa. 40:28; 46:10; Hab. 1:13; Mal. 3:6; Jn. 4:24; Rom. 11:33-36; Col. 1:17; 1 Tim. 6:15, 16; 2 Tim. 2:13; Heb. 6:17, 18; 1 Jn. 4:7; Rev. 4:11).

Jesus—The Redeemer (Ephesians 1:7-12)

We believe in Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Trinity, the Eternal Word manifested in the flesh, true God and true man, having two distinct natures co–joined in one Person. We believe that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died on the cross as a substitutionary atonement for our sins, arose bodily again on the third day, ascended to heaven to be at the right hand of God as Intercessor and Advocate, and will soon return bodily to judge the living and the dead, and will reign victorious forever and ever (Gen. 3:15; 49:10; Jer. 23:5, 6; Isa. 9:6; 7:14; 53:1-12; 61:1; Mic. 5:2; Dan. 9:25, 26; Matt. 1:18-21; 16:16; Lk. 1:26-33; Jn. 1:1-14; 5:18; 6:35; 8:12; 10:7-14; 11:25; 14:6; 15:1, 5; Acts 2:29-36; 3:17-26; 4:10-12; 10:42; Gal. 4:4; Eph. 1:7-11; Phil. 2:5-11; Col. 1:2; Tim. 4:1; Heb. 1:2-8; 1 Pet. 1:3; 4:5; Rev. 1:17, 18; 19:11-16; 22:12, 13).

Holy Spirit—The Sealer (Ephesians 1:13, 14)

We believe that the Holy Spirit, being the Third Person of the Godhead, convicts men of sin, regenerates, indwells, baptizes believers into one spiritual body, seals them, and sets them apart to a holy life; that He keeps and empowers believers day by day to live a godly life. We believe that He is the Teacher of the Word of God through which He guides us in our daily lives (Gen. 1:2; Isa. 11:2; 61:1-3; Zech. 12:10; Jn. 14:15-17, 26; 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; Rom. 8:9-11, 26, 27; 1 Cor. 2:10-13; 3:16; 12:3-13; 2 Cor. 3:18; Eph. 1:13, 14; 4:4, 30; 1 Thess. 5:19; Tit. 3:5; Heb. 9:14; 10:29; 1 Jn. 2:20).

Bible

We believe that only the sixty–six books of the Old and New Testament Scriptures are verbally inspired by God, infallible, and inerrant in the original text, and that they alone are the supreme and final authority which is sufficient for faith and practice (Ps. 18:30; 19:7-11; 33:4; 119; Isa. 55:11; Matt. 5:17; Jn. 10:35; 17:17; Rom. 15:4; 1 Cor. 2:13; Eph. 6:17; 1 Tim. 5:17; 2 Tim. 3:15, 16; Heb. 4:12; Js. 1:25; 1 Pet. 1:11, 12; 2:2; 2 Pet. 1:20, 21). 

Sin

We believe Adam and Eve were originally created in the image of God, perfect and complete, yet through the temptation of Satan, willfully disobeyed by sinning against God, and as a result, transmitted sin and death upon the entire human race so that we are all born with a propensity to sin and necessity to die (Gen. 3; 6:5; Ps. 14:1-3; 38:4; 51:2-4; Isa. 1:18; Jer. 17:9; Rom. 1:18-32; 2:9, 12; 3:9-23; 5:12; Gal. 5:19-21; Eph. 2:1-3; 4:17-19; 1 Jn. 2:1, 2; 3:8-10).

Salvation

We believe salvation is a free gift of God that comes only by His grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, apart from all good works.  Thereby, being regenerated by the Holy Spirit, justified once and for all, and redeemed as a child of God, the believer has the assurance of eternal security in Christ. We also believe that it is the life-long duty of all believers to live godly lives, awaiting the imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ (Jn. 1:12; 3:16, 36; 5:24; 10:27, 28; Rom. 3:24, 25; 4:5, 24, 25; 5:15-17; 6:23; 10:9, 10; 1 Cor. 15:2-8; 2 Cor. 5:17-21; Gal. 3:23-27; Eph. 2:8, 9; Col. 2:13, 14; Tit. 2:11-14; 3:5-7; 1 Pet. 3:18; 1 Jn. 5:13).

Eternal Destiny

We believe the resurrection of the saved and the lost will result in eternal security of the elect to heaven, and the conscious and eternal damnation of the lost in hell (Dan. 12:2; Lk. 14:14; 16:19-21; Jn. 3:36; 5:28, 29; 2 Cor. 5:8-10; Heb. 9:27; Rev. 20:11-15).      

Church

We believe that the universal Church of Jesus Christ is composed of those who have been re­deemed and washed in His blood, regenerated and sealed by the Holy Spirit, regardless of which Christian body they are associated. We believe that local Christian churches should be self-governing bodies under Christ their head, and are accountable to teach the Bible, worship God, fellowship in unity, equip the saints, stand against Satan, practice the two ordinances of communion and baptism, and preach the gospel, making disciples all over the world (Matt. 16:18; Acts 2:1-21, 38-47; 11:26; 1 Cor. 1:2; 10:32; 12:12-13, 28; 2 Cor. 11:2; Eph. 1:22; 3:10; 5:23-32; Col. 1:18; 1 Tim. 3:15; Heb. 10:24, 25).
