Our Beliefs

  • We believe in the inspired Word of God as being the final authority, inerrant, and everlastingly pure. (II Timothy 3 :16; I Corinthians 2:13)
  • We believe in the Eternal Godhead revealed as ONE God in THREE persons, as distinguishable but indivisible; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14)
  • We believe in the creation, test, and fall of man into spiritual depravity and his need for salvation from sin. (Romans 3:10-18)
  • We believe that Jesus Christ, Son of God, and Son of Man, was born of the Virgin Mary, fully God and fully man. (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:18; Isaiah 7: 14; 9: 16)
  • We believe that Jesus was without sin, the perfect sacrifice to die for our sins as redemption of fallen man. He died on a cross and rose again three days later from the dead, forever conquering death and providing a way of salvation for all who believe in Him. (I Corinthians 15: 1 4; Romans 4:25)
  • We believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ and the eternal judgment of every man, life everlasting for those who believe, and eternal punishment in hell for those who do not. (John 14:2-3; 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18)
  • We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary by which we obtain remission of sins (Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9: 12, 22; Romans 5: 11).
  • We believe in the reality and personality of Satan and the eternal judgment of Satan and his angels. (Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:10-15)
  • We believe in the necessity of water baptism by immersion in the name of the Eternal Godhead in order to fulfill the command of Christ and as a public declaration of faith. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:36-39; 19:1-6)
  • We believe in the Table of the Lord, commonly known as communion, for all believers as a remembrance of the sacrifice of Jesus. (I Corinthians 11:28-32)
  • We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as an experience subsequent to salvation, and in the operation of the gifts of the Spirit as manifested in the Early Church (Acts 2:1-4; 8:14 17; 10:44-46; Galatians 3:14-15; I Corinthians 12-14).
  • We believe in the Spirit-filled life, separation from the world, and perfecting of holiness in the fear of the Lord.
  • We believe in the local church as the final instrument of God’s eternal purposes, and the universal church as the community of all those who believe in Jesus Christ in one body from every tongue, tribe, and nation.
  • We believe in the healing of the body by Divine Power, or Divine healing in its varied aspects as practiced in the Early Church (Acts 4:30; Romans 8: 11; I Corinthians 12:9; James 5:1 ).
  • We believe in the sanctity of marriage as established by the Holy Scriptures and that God created marriage and that the only legitimate marriage is the joining of one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:24; Romans 7:2-3; I Corinthians 7:10-11; Ephesians 5:22-33).

who  was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary,

He is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and He will come to judge the living and the dead.
