What We Believe

  1. The Bible is the inspired inerrant Word of God, a revelation fromGod to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (2Tim. 3:16; 1 Peter 2:23-25; Heb. 4:12).
  2. There is only one living and true God. There are three persons in the Godhead: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three represent and function as the one God. They are in absolute perfect harmony and are coeternal, coequal, and co-powerful.  (Genesis 1:2,27; Matthew 28:19; I John 5:7)
  3. We believe in Salvation through confession of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and it is by the grace of God and not by works. (Acts 4:12; Romans 10:9-10; John 14:6; Ephesians 2:8-9)
  4. We believe Jesus Christ, conceived of the Virgin Mary, is the only begotten Son of the Father, Fully God and Fully Man. Jesus was crucified, buried and rose from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us. (Luke 1:26-33;John 1:1,14,1Corinthians 15:1-4; Hebrews 7:25).
  5. We believe that because of Jesus’ resurrection it assures all who die in Christ will be raised from the dead. (John 5:28-30; John 6:39-40; 1Corinthians 6:14;1 Corinthians 15:20-28).
  6. We believe we are justified (declared righteous under the blood of Jesus) when we repent of our sins and believe in Jesus Christ. (Acts 13:38,39; Romans 5:1; I Corinthians 6:11; Mark 1:5)
  7. We believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit which in most cases is accompanied with speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance as the initial evidence. We believe in the operation of the nine Gifts of the Spirit and encourage our people to live so that these gifts may be manifest in their lives. (Acts 2:4; Acts 10:44-46; Acts 19:6; I Corinthians 12:4-11)
  8. We believe the ordinance of baptism should be observed as commanded in the scriptures by all who have truly repented in their hearts and believed on Christ as savior and Lord. (Matthew 28:18-19).
  9. We believe in the observance of the Lord’ supper as commanded in the scriptures. In doing so we commemorate the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 11:23-32)
  10. We believe in divine healing for the body. However, we encourage and do not condemn medical science. (Acts 3:2-12; Acts 5:15, 16; James 5:14-15)
  11. We believe in the Second Coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ. (Acts 1:10,11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 1:7)
  12. We believe those who die outside of Christ will be punished in an eternal Hell, but those who die “in Him” shall share in His glory in Heaven forever. (Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:46; John 5:29; Jude 1:7)
  13. We believe that every believer should strive to live a life of purity and holiness on a daily basis. (1 Peter 1:15-16; 1 Thessalonians 4:7)
  14. We believe in the sacredness of marriage between one man & one woman and family commitment. We promote strong family values. (Ephesians 5:31-33; Ephesians 6:1-4; Hebrews 13:4; Matthew 19:5 Leviticus 18:22; Genesis 2:24)
