What We Believe

We believe…

…The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, and the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of man, and the Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.

…In one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three Persons . . . Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

…That Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary. He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into Heaven, where He reigns at the right hand of the Majesty on High.

…That the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.

…That man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is, therefore, lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.

…That the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provides the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit, and thus become children of God.

…That God gives spiritual enabling gifts, as He wills, for service and the edification of all believers. No gift of the Spirit is required for salvation nor for the keeping of salvation or its completion.

…That the Baptism of the Spirit is accomplished at the moment of the New Birth. There may be many times when one yields themselves to the Holy Spirit, but there is only one indwelling or Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

…That God does hear and answer the prayer of faith, according to His will for the sick and afflicted.  That the ultimate deliverance of the body from sickness or death awaits the consummation of our salvation in the resurrection.

…That baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age. They are however, not to be regarded as means of salvation.

…That all true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together as members of the Body of Christ, of which He is the Head.

… That all who have been born again are kept safe by the power of God through faith unto salvation and that they shall never perish.

…In the personal and premillennial and imminent coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and that this “Blessed Hope” has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.

…In the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believers to everlasting joy and blessedness with the Lord; of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.

… In the personality of Satan as the motivating force behind all evil.
