Statement of Faith

We Believe…

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and our infallible guide for living. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; I Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21)

God is One, manifested in three distinct persons:
the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit being co-equal. (Phil 2:6)

Man is a created being made in the image of God; through Adam’s fall, sin entered the world; salvation is God’s free gift of grace to mankind through faith in Jesus Christ and His shed blood; in dying for our sins, Jesus took our place, delivered us from the bondage and penalty of sin, and restored us back to God. (Rom 5:12-15; 3:10, 3:23; 1 John 3:8)

That the first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that leads to repentance, which leads to a confession of faith in Jesus Christ and produces the “new birth.” (2 Corinthians 5:17; I John 5:12; John 3:5)

The water baptism is by immersion, and is for Believers only as a sign of commitment, obedience and identity with Christ. (Acts 8:36-38; Matt. 28:19; Romans 6:4; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12)

The baptism in the Holy Spirit is promised to all believers and is initially evidenced by speaking in other tongues as the Spirit Himself gives utterance. (Matt. 3:11; John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8, 2:38-39; 19:1-7)

That sanctification is a definite but progressive work of grace. (Heb. 12:14; I Thess. 5:23; 2 Peter 3:8; 2 Cor. 3:18; Phil. 3:12-14)

Divine healing and health has been provided through the atonement made by Jesus Christ and is the privilege of every member of the Church today. (Isaiah 53:4-5; I Peter 2:24; Mark 16:18; James 5:14-15; Matt. 8:17; 2 Peter 1:2-4)

Jesus will return for His Bride, and that those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be resurrected to live with the Lord forever. (Matthew 24:30-31; Revelation 20:12-15)

Those who die in sin without accepting Jesus are eternally lost and will forever be separated from God. (Luke 16:19-31; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 19:20, 20:12-15)
