OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God in its original text. [2 Tim. 3:16-17]
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons simultaneous at the same time, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. [Matt. 28:18-20]
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, in His virgin birth, and His sinless life. [John 1:1-2, 14; Matt. 1:23; Heb. 4:15]
We believe in His doctrine and miracles as taught in the cannon of the New Testament. [Mark 16:15-20; 2 Tm. 3:16]
We believe in His vicarious and atoning death, and His bodily resurrection and His ascension into heaven where He is seated at the right of the Father. [1 Cor.15; Eph. 1:20; Heb. 8:1]
We believe in the imminent return of Jesus Christ and the catching away of the Church. [1Thess.4:13-18; Rev. 4:1]
We believe in Christ’s personal future return to the earth in power to rule for a thousand years. [Rev. 20:4]
We believe in the future resurrection of the saved and the lost; the saved to everlasting life, the lost to everlasting damnation. [Jn.5:29]
We believe the only means of being cleansed from sin is by repentance and faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ. [Heb.9:22; Eph. 1:7]
We believe regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation. [Titus3:5]
We believe in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in all believers at the time of regeneration. [Romans 8:9; 1Cor. 3:16-17; 6:17-20]
We believe in the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling, all believers are enabled to live holy lives. [Epn.5:26; 1Thess.5:23; Heb.13:12]
We believe the Baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4 is given to all Believers who ask for it.
We believe the Manifestations of the Holy Spirit as listed in 1 Cor.12-14 are very much a part of the Spirit’s ministry in the church today.
We believe in the five-fold ministry of the church, that of the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher. [Eph. 4:11-12]
We believe in the governing of the church by elders, the Pastor as the lead Elder. [1Tm.5:17; Titus1:5]
We believe in water baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. [Matt.28:18-20] We also believe it is a symbol of our identification with Christ and not a means of grace or an entrance into the new covenant.
We believe in partaking of the Lord’s Supper [Holy Communion] in remembrance of His death until He comes again. [1Cor.11:23-32]
We believe the Church is Christ body and God’s Ambassadors to the world that all might come to know and believe on Jesus Christ as Savior. [2Cor.5:20]
