What We Believe
  1. The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are inspired of God and are the revelation of God and His relationship to man, and provides us with infallible, authoritative principles of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13;   2 Peter 1:21)
     
  2. We believe in the one true God who has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent "I AM," the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind.  He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10, 11; Matthew 28:19)
     
  3. We believe that our God is a trinity in unity, manifested in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
     
  4. That Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God as the scriptures declare his virgin birth, his sinless life, his miracles, substitutionary work on the cross, his resurrection from the dead, and his exaltation to the right hand of God.
     
  5. We believe that man was created in the image of God, but by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God (Genesis 1:26; Romans 15:12-19). Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God.
     
  6. We believe that salvation is received through repentance and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ.  We believe that believing with one’s heart in the Lord Jesus and acceptance of God as not only your Savior, but as Lord is the basic requirement of salvation.
     
  7. We believe in the ordinance of baptism by immersion as commanded by the Scriptures.  All who repent and believe on Christ as Savior and Lord should request to be baptized. (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:6; Acts 10:47,48; Romans 6:4)
     
  8. We believe that all believers should ardently and earnestly seek and desire the promise of the baptism of the Holy Spirit by which individuals may be endued with “power from on high” for life and service, the bestowment of gifts and their use in the work of the ministry.
     
  9. We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is an experience distinct from the experience of the new birth and that the baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit empowers the believers with gifts used to edify and exhort the body of Christ. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4, 8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31; Acts 2:4)
     
  10. We believe in divine healing is an integral part of the gospel and that deliverance from sickness and ills is the privilege of all believers. (Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:16, 17; James 5:14-16)
     
  11. We believe in the “total” (nepesh) being of man, meaning he is a being of spirit, soul, and body yet being one just as God is One...
     
  12. We are committed to unity within the Body of Christ. We see ourselves as only one expression of Christ’s Body on the earth. We believe that we should endeavor to maintain the unity of the Spirit with all true believers in Christ, recognizing them as our brothers and sisters in Christ.
     
  13. We believe that our loyalty to Christ compels us to live in a manner worthy of our calling as Christians. Our motive is not cold legalism but love and devotion to our Lord. The Scriptures direct us at all times to examine our own hearts. We believe in a life that is continually being formed into the Image of Christ.
