Our Beliefs

GOD

There is one God who is sovereign in every aspect. The triune Godhead consists of The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, who are eternally self existent, self revealed, and function as one and are one. Jesus Christ, who is God manifested in the flesh, has the fullness of the Godhead within Him, and became the “Unblemished Sacrificial Lamb” for the purpose of redeeming lost and sinful man back to God. God is Father in His creative work, Son in His redemptive work, and The Holy Ghost at work in the world. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:5-6; Philippians 2:9-11; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 5:7)

JESUS

Jesus will come again to gather all of His Saints unto Himself to reign with Him eternally. (John 14:1-6; 1 Corinthians 15:51‑58; 1 Thessalonians. 4:16‑17)

THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers, and through the Baptism of the Holy Spirit believers are empowered for Christian service, and gifted for this service. An evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance. The Holy Spirit also enables believers to live a Christ-like life exhibiting Godly character (Luke 11:13, Acts 1:8, 2:1-4, 8:17, 10:44-46, 19:6, Gal. 5:22-23, 1 Cor.12).

MAN

Man who is triune; spirit, soul and body, was created good, upright, and in the image and likeness of God, and voluntarily transgressed and fell. Redemption for man is in Jesus Christ, The Son of God. (Genesis 1:26‑27, 3:1‑8; Romans 5:12‑21)

SALVATION

We believe that salvation is by faith and through grace alone. No amount of good works will produce justification before God. We further believe that the manifestation of faith and grace is a holy life expressed through righteous works (Eph. 2:8-10).

SCRIPTURE

The Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason. (Hebrews 4:12)

OUR HOPE

Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. 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, provides salvation for all mankind. (John 3:16; Romans 3:23-24; Romans 10:8‑10; Ephesians 2:8)

BAPTISMS

All who have repented in their heart and truly believe in Christ should be baptized by submersion, which represents the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This declares to the world that they have died and been raised with Jesus Christ in the newness of life. (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:10-13)

THE CHURCH

The church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her “Great Commission.” Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the Body of Christ whose name is written in heaven. (Matthew 28:18-20; Roman 12:4-5; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19‑22; Hebrews 10:25; 12:23)
