What We Believe

The Word of God

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7)

The Trinity

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7)

Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:1), His virgin birth (Matthew 1:18), His sinless life (2 Corinthians 5:21),

His death as the only sacrifice for the sin of the world (1 John 2:2), His bodily resurrection from the dead (Luke 24:39),

His ascension to the right hand of God as our intercessor (Hebrews 4:14), and His future return in glory, first to rapture His church (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)

and second, to establish the kingdom of God upon the earth. (Revelation 20:6).

Sinfulness of Men

We believe that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all

and necessary for forgiveness of sins (Romans 3:23).

Access to the Father

We believe in the finality of Christ’s redemption of humanity and the present freedom of access to the Father (1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 7:25).

Salvation

We believe in the new birth as the only means of receiving eternal life.

The new birth involves a cleansing and deliverance from the penalty and power of sin.

It is effectuated through faith in Jesus Christ and repentance from sin (John 3:3,5,7; Ephesians 2:8,9; 1 Peter 1:18-20).

Healing

We believe in the finality of Christ’s redemption of humanity and the present freedom of access to the Father (1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 7:25).

Holy Spirit

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as an enduement of power for all believers (Acts 2:4,38-39; 10:44-46; 19:1-6; Ephesians 5:18).

This baptism results in a deeper expression of spiritual fruit (Galatians 5:22, 23), a greater growth in Christ-likeness (2 Corinthians 3:18),

a genuine manifestation of spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12:1-11), and a more effective prayer life (Romans 8:26, 27).

Communion & Water Baptism

We believe in the sacraments of the church established by Jesus Christ our Lord; the Lord’s Supper (Matthew 26:26-30; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

and water baptism by immersion as a symbol and witness of the new birth (Matthew 28:19: 1 Peter 3:20-22).

Eternal Life

We believe in the resurrection from the dead. First, the righteous unto eternal life and second,

the ungodly unto eternal damnation (Daniel 12:2; John 5:28,29; Revelation 20:4-6,11-15).
