What We Believe

We believe the following:

  1. The Bible is the Word of God.
    • Inspired by God Himself (II Timothy 3:15-17)
    • Infallible, Authoritative, Revealed, Will of God  (Hebrews 4:12, John 7:17)
  2. There is one true God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Mark 12:29, I John 5:6-8).
  3. Jesus Christ is perfect Deity and perfect humanity (John 3:18, Mark 2:26-28)
    • His virgin birth (John 3:16)
    • His sinless life (I Peter 2:22)
    • His miracles (Acts 10:38)
    • His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood (I Cor. 15:3-4)
    • His bodily resurrection (Eph. 1:20)
    • His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Eph. 1:20)
    • His return in power and glory (I Thes. 4:13-18)
    • His millennial reign (Rev. 19:11-16, 20:1-7)
  4. The salvation of man: The shed blood of Jesus Christ, grace through faith, believing in the heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, and confessing with the mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, will result in man’s salvation (Rom. 3:21-30, 10:8-10)
  5. Water Baptism is an ordinance of the church symbolizing to the world that one has died with Jesus and has also been raised with Him in resurrection power to walk in newness of life. (Matt. 28:19, Acts 10:47-48 Rom. 6:4-11, Eph. 2:6)
  6. The Lord’s Supper is an ordinance of the church symbolizing the broken body and shed blood of Jesus Christ as the New Covenant between God and man. (I Cor. 11:24-25,28).
  7. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit, which is the promise of faith, and the subsequent manifestation of spiritual gifts.
  8. The Church is the Body of Christ, the dwelling place and home of God, through the Holy Spirit. Each believer, born of God’s Spirit, is an integral part of the Church (Eph. 1:22-23, 2:19,22).
  9. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; that they are saved unto the resurrection of life, or they are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:24, 28-29).
  10. In the atonement of Jesus and His resurrection, healing from sickness, disease, and freedom from mental torment is provided. (Isa. 52:4, Matt. 8:16-17, Mark 16:18, John 5:6-14, I Peter 2:24, Col. 1:3, Eph. 1:20-21).
  11. Total prosperity: Spiritual (John 3:3,11); Mental (II Tim. 1:7, Rom. 12:2); Physical (Isa. 53:4-5, Matt. 8:17); Financial (III John 2, Mal. 3:10-11); and Social (Prov. 3:4)
  12. “Awaiting our blessed hope, the appearing of our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST!” (Titus 2:3).
