What We Believe
We believe the Holy Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is verbally inspired of God to man, and it is the infallible authoritative rule of faith and conduct.
II Timothy 3:15-17; I Thessalonians 2:13.
We believe the one true God has revealed Himself as eternally self-existent, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, and the Savior of humanity. We believe He has further revealed Himself as Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43;10; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22.
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ and further believe Jesus Christ is the Eternal Son of God.
We believe man was created good and upright; however, man, by voluntary transgression, fell. Man incurred physical death and spiritual death which separated him from God.
Genesis 1:26-27, 2:17, 3:6; Romans 5:12-19.
We believe man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. By the washing and regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by faith, man becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life.
John 3:3, John 3:16; Romans 10:13-15.
We believe the ordinance of partaking of the Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements bread and the fruit of the vine is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ, and a memorial of His suffering and death.
I Corinthians 1:26, II Peter 1:4.
We believe in the Second Coming of Christ and that it is enjoined on all believers until He comes!
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit. All believers should earnestly seek the promise of the Father according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit produces endowment of power for life and service and the bestowment of gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.
Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; I Corinthians 12:1-31.
We believe the mission of the Church is to seek and to save that which is lost and to not only be a hearer of the word, but a committed doer of the word. James 1:22. The Church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointment for the fulfillment of the Great Commission, an agency of God for evangelizing the world.
Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-16.
We believe in divine healing.
Isaiah 53:4-5; James 5:14-16.
We believe in the millennial reign of Christ.
Zechariah 14:5; Matthew 24:27-30; Revelation 1:7;
We believe in the final judgment. There will be final judgment in which the dead will be raised and judged according to their works.
Revelation 19:20, Revelation 20:11
We believe there will be a new Heaven and a new Earth.
II Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:22.
We believe racism is one of the last enemies of the cross. The body of Christ has no room for this type of behavior, and it will not be tolerated with this body of believers.
Acts 10:28; Galatians 2:12.
