What We Believe
 
We believe the Bible is verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit, the infallible revelation of God to man. (II Timothy 3:16-17, II Peter 1:20-21).
 
  • God's Nature - We believe in one true God eternally existent in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit; We believe God is Omnipresent, Omniscient and Omnipotent (Gen 1:1, 26, Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 43:10-11, Matthew 28:19, Mark 12:29).
  • Jesus Christ - We believe Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of a virgin and lived a blameless and sinless life. That he died for our sins and the sins of the whole world, was buried and on the third day resurrected by the glory of the Father. He ascended into Heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God and intercedes for the saints until His return (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 11:27, Romans 5:4).
  • Salvation of Man - We believe that salvation is a free gift of God and is received by grace through faith, not of works. The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses from all unrighteousness (Ephesians 2:8-9, I John 1:7).
  • Water Baptism - We believe that after repentance and confession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, a believer should be baptized by immersion in water (Matthew 28:19, I Peter 3:21).
  • Holy Spirit Baptism - We believe that all believers are indwelt by the Holy Spirit and should desire and expect to receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon them. This is distinct and subsequent to the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and is made manifest by the speaking in unknown tongues, spiritual gifts, and the power for an overcoming life of service to God (John 20:22, Acts 1:4, 8).
  • The Lord's Supper - We believe the Lord's Supper is to be celebrated by the taking of the bread and the cup, thereby, commemorating the Lord's death until he returns (I Corinthians 11:23-26, Matthew 26:26-29).
  • The Second Coming of Christ - We believe in the bodily ascension of Jesus to Heaven. His exaltation, personal, literal and bodily coming again the second time for the Church. (John 14:2-3, I Thessalonians 4:13-18).
  • As a Believer - We believe in the responsibility of every believer to reach the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15-20, Acts 1:8, Acts 2:40-41).
