We Believe

  • The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God.

  • There is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

  • In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years.

  • In the blessed hope – the rapture of the Church at Christ’s coming.

  • The only means of salvation is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.

  • Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

  • In water baptism by immersion.

  • The redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing for the body in answer to believing prayer.

  • In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life.

  • The baptism in the Holy Spirit is given to believers who ask for it.

  • In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.

  • That each child of God is called to be a witness to the saving grace of Jesus Christ and unto each is committed the word and ministry of reconciling the world to God.
