What We Believe

STATEMENT OF FAITH

WE BELIEVE the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the Divinely inspired Word of God and accept them as our final authority on faith and doctrine.

WE BELIEVE in one God eternally existing in three Persons, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost.

WE BELIEVE in the Deity of our Lord, Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, in His miracles, His atoning and substitutionary death, His bodily resurrection, and in His ascension to the right hand of the Father.

WE BELIEVE in the personal return of Jesus Christ. We believe in the “blessed hope,” that is, the catching away of the church at His Second Coming.

WE BELIEVE that man was created in God’s image and, in his natural state, is fallen and away from God, separated by sin from God forever.

WE BELIEVE that personal regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for salvation. This experience, which the Bible refers to as a New Birth, is an experience of Grace, through Faith, freely performed by the Holy Spirit to as many as accept Jesus Christ as Savior and follow Him as Lord.

WE BELIEVE in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. This endowment of power is available to all believers who ask for it with the evidences and manifestations described in 1Cor. 12. We support the operation of the gifts of the Spirit.

WE BELIEVE there shall be a bodily resurrection of all the dead, just and unjust, the unjust shall go away into everlasting punishment and the just (saved) to eternal life (bliss).

WE BELIEVE in the necessity of Water Baptism for all believers and Communion as instituted and commanded by the Lord, Jesus Christ.
