STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe the Bible is the unfailing, reliable Word of God.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 | 1 Thessalonians 2:13 | 2 Peter 1:20-21

We believe in the Divine Trinity, that God is one, but is manifested in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and that they are co-equal and co-eternal. 
Matthew 28:19 | John 15:26 | 2 Corinthians 13:14 | 1 John 5:7 

We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.
John 1:1,14 | Isaiah 48:16 

We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit.
John 14:16-17,26 

We believe man’s first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that produces repentance.
Romans 2:4 | Psalm 51:17 | Luke 15:11-24 

We believe salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God.
Ephesians 2:8-10 | Romans 10:8-10 | 2 Timothy 1:9  

We believe Holy Communion should be taken as instituted by Jesus Christ in remembrance and in honor of the New Covenant.
1 Corinthians 10:16, 11:23-32 

We believe in water baptism by immersion as a direct commandment of the Lord, and that this ordinance is for believers only, and is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.
Matthew 28:19 | Colossians 2:11-12 | 1 Peter 3:20-21 | Hebrews 11:29 | Acts 8:36-39 

We believe baptism in the Holy Spirit is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this life and is received after the New Birth.
Matthew 3:11 | Acts 1:4-8, 19:1-6 

We believe baptism in the Holy Spirit is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit gives the believer utterance.
Acts 2:1-4 | 1 Corinthians 12-14 | Jude 20 | Romans 8:26-27 | Luke 11:9-13

We believe the Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord, and that sanctification is a definite, yet progressive work of grace, beginning at the time of salvation and continuing until Christ returns.
Hebrews 12:14 | 2 Timothy 2:20-21 | 2 Corinthians 3:17-18 | 1 Corinthians 3:11-15 | Philippians 3:12-14 

We believe healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith and by the laying on of hands; and that it is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the privilege of every member of the Church today.
James 5:14-15 | Isaiah 53:4-5 | 1 Peter 2:24 | Acts 10:38 | Romans 8:11 

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ shall return for the Church and that His coming is near.
Acts 1:10-11 | 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 

We believe Jesus will return to earth as King of kings and Lord of lords, and together with His saints, who shall be kings and priests, He shall reign a thousand years as written in the Word of God. We also believe that those who physically die in their sins without accepting Christ are hopelessly and eternally lost and therefore, have no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting. We believe Heaven and Hell are literal places, and that the terms “eternal” and “everlasting” have the same meaning of endless existence for both the saved and unsaved.
Revelation 1:5-6, 20:6-15 | Exodus 32:33 | Psalm 69:28 | Hebrews 9:27-28 | John 3:16
