What We Believe

The Bible
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, a divine revelation from God to man. We accept the Scriptures as the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (II Timothy 3:16-17 & II Peter 1:19-21)

God
We believe in the one ever-living, eternal God: infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes and purpose; and possessing absolute, indivisible deity. This one true God has revealed Himself as the Father in creation, as the Son in redemption, and as the Holy Spirit in sanctification. (Deuteronomy 6:4-5 & II Timothy 3:16)

Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin; that He lived a sinless life, was crucified on Calvary for our sins, and bodily rose from the grave; and that He has been exalted to the throne of God where He is the only mediator between God and man. We believe that through His death and life we have personal salvation and power for victorious living. (Matthew 16:13-19 & II Timothy 2:5-6)

The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is active in the world today and that the baptism of the Holy Spirit, with the initial evidence of speaking with other tongues, along with His accompanying gifts, is the privilege of all New Testament believers. (John 14:15-26 & Acts 2:1-21)

Salvation
We believe that all men have sinned and stand in need of redemption, which is obtained through faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Those who repent of their sins, and who are baptized in Jesus’ name, and who receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost become children of God and heirs with Christ. (Romans 3:19-25 & Acts 2:37-38)

The Church
We believe the Church has been "called out" of the world to be a habitation of God through the Spirit. As the body of Christ on earth, the church offers hope to mankind. The church is one body made up of many members, diverse in their gifts and calling of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 15:13-21 & I Corinthians 13:12-31)

The Second Coming
We believe Jesus Christ will come again to establish His kingdom on the earth. At His coming, we believe the dead in Christ will be resurrected from the grave to reign with Him for a thousand years. (Matthew 24 & Revelation 20)
