What We Believe
There is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. That the Bible is God's written revelation to man, and that it is verbally inspired, authoritative, and without error in the original manuscripts.
In the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death on the cross to provide for our redemption, bodily resurrection and ascension into heaven, present ministry of intercession for us, and His return to earth in power and glory. In the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, that He performs the miracle of the new birth in unbelievers and indwells believers, enabling them to live godly lives.
That man was created in the image of God, but because of sin, was alienated from God. Only through faith, trusting in Christ alone for salvation that was made possible by His death and resurrection, can that alienation be removed.
The Bible teaches that once a person is truly saved they are sealed with the Holy Spirit (Eph. 1:13) and are secure in Christ.
The Bible does not teach security in a place called Heaven, (one third of the angels fell from Heaven). Rather, it teaches security in a person, Jesus Christ. Jesus said, No one can snatch them out of my hand (John 10:28).
The Bible does not teach unconditional security. The condition to our security is that we must truly be saved. Someone who claims to be saved, yet lives a life of continual, habitual sin is like the person Paul warned Jude about in Jude 4. They are godless men, who change the grace of God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign Lord and God. The person who lives like this is not saved and is living with a sense of false security (Hebrews 6:4-8; I John 3:6).
Our vision is to develop a multi-regional, multi-racial congregation headquartered in South Central Arlington, committed to expository preaching, biblical and demonstrative praise and worship, small group discipleship, a specific ministry to the fatherless and aggressive and innovative evangelism that's done not only across the street but around the world.
