We Believe…

  • The Scriptures The Bible in its entirety is the inspired word of God and the infallible and inerrant rule of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:21).
  • The Godhead Our God is one, Maker of all things, who eternally exists in Trinity as three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (1John 5:4-7; John 1:1-14).
  • The Lord Jesus Christ He is the only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, crucified, dead, buried, resurrected, and ascended into heaven and is now seated at God’s right hand (Matthew 1:23, 28:6; Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:3).
  • Salvation For lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential (Romans 3:21-30; Galatians 4:4-7).
  • Sanctification The Bible teaches Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive, work of Grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consumation of salvation at Christ’s return (Hebrews 12:14; 1 Thess. 5:23; 2 Cor. 3:18).
  • Resurrection Both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; the saved unto the resurrection of life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:24, 28, 29).
  • Water Baptism and Communion These are the two ordinances the Lord has set in the church. Water baptism by immersion and partaking of the elements to show the Lord’s death until He comes (Acts 1:5, 2:4, 38; Colossians 2:7; 1 Corinthians 11:23-31).
  • Baptism in the Holy Spirit The full consummation of the baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, and by the subsequent manifestation of spiritual power in public testimony and service (Acts 2:4, Acts 10:44-46; Acts 19:2, 6; Acts 1:8, Matthew 3:11).
  • Divine Healing Healing is for the physical ills of the human body, mind, and emotions, and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith, and by the laying on of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the privilege of every member of the Church today (James 5:14-15; Mark 16:18; Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24).
  • The Great Commission The active work of evangelism and missions should be done in accordance with the Great Commandment (Matthew 28:18-19; Acts 1:8; Luke 10:27).
  • The Second Coming There will be a literal second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to gather His prepared church to be with Him forever (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 1:7, 19:11, 22:7).
  • The Sanctity of Marriage We believe the Bible teaches that a marriage exists only between a man and a woman (Gen. 1:24, Matthew 19:4,5, Ephesians 5:31).
