TECH Statement of Faith

  • We believe that both the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God and are completely without error in the original writings, and are of supreme and final authority on every subject with which they deal. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21)
  • We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; each of whom is equal in being, power, and glory. (Matthew 28:19; Hebrews 1:8; Acts 5:3-4)
  • We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, His virgin birth, sinless life, sacrificial atoning death for our sins, His bodily resurrection, and His personal, literal, imminent return. (John 1:1-3, 29; 3:16 ; Luke 24:36-43; John 14:1-3; Matthew 1:23; II Corinthians 5:21; I Peter 2:24)
  • We believe that God created the heavens and the earth, including all life, “each after its own kind“, by direct act and not by the process of evolution. (Genesis 1, 2; Colossians 1:16-17; John 1:3; Hebrews 11:3)
  • We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam’s sin the human race fell, inherited a sin nature, and became alienated from God; and, that man is totally depraved, and himself completely unable to remedy his lost condition. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22 -23; 5:10 -19; Ephesians 2:1-3, 12)
  • We believe in the distinct personality of Satan, that he is the “god of this age”, author of all the powers of darkness and sin, and is destined to the judgment of an eternal justice in the lake of fire. (Matthew 4:1-3; II Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 20:10)
  • We believe that man in his natural state can in no way save himself no matter how good his intentions. God, however, being a loving God, has provided a way for all men to be saved by grace through faith in His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. When a man exercises his faith in the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ he, at that moment, passes from death unto life. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Isaiah 64:6; John 3:16 ; 5:24 ; 6:47)
  • We believe in the eternal security of the believer. (John 10:28-29; Romans 8:35; Philippians 1:6; I Peter 1:5)
  • We believe in righteous living and good works, not as the means of salvation, but as its evidence and fruit. (Ephesians 2:8-10; Romans 12:1-2; Titus 3:8)
  • We believe in the Church which is the body and bride of Jesus Christ, whose purpose is to worship, pray, fellowship, teach, witness for Christ, and observe the ordinances of her Lord: believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper. (Ephesians 5:25-32; Matthew 28:20; I Corinthians 11:23-24; Acts 8:38)
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit seals, baptizes, indwells, and regenerates all believing sinners at the moment of conversion. We believe that He sovereignly gives to all believers spiritual gifts for service. (I Corinthians 12:13; I Peter 4:10; Ephesians 1:13; John 3:1-8; Titus 3:5; I Corinthians 14:22, Hebrews 2:3-4; Mark 16:17 -20)

We acknowledge that the above foundational doctrines in no way exhaust the content of our faith, which is the entire Word of God. We do believe that these articles are true representatives of the sound doctrine in the Scriptures.
