What We Believe

What We Believe

We believe the Bible is the inspired and only infallible authoritative Word of God.

We believe in the triune Godhead as eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ; His virgin birth. sinless life, miracles, vicarious death and atonement through His shed blood; His bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father, and present priestly ministry.

We believe in evangelistic and missionary fervor and endeavor.

 We believe that for the salvation of the lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. We further believe in the keeping power of God.

 We believe that sanctification, holiness, and the overcoming life is God’s design for the church.

We believe that sexual purity is a necessary expression for all God’s children and requires abstinence from adultery, fornication, incest, homosexuality, or other sexual relationships or practices forbidden by Scripture.

We believe that marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime and a sacred institution established by God.

We believe that Baptism is for believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and is to be administered by immersion, thus bearing witness to the Gospel of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection for us, and for our own new life in Him.

We believe that Communion, when shared by believers, witnesses to the saving power of the Gospel and Christ’s presence in His Church, and looks forward to His victorious return.

We believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, as on the day of Pentecost, and the continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit as evidenced in charismatic gifts and ministries, and in the fruit of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer.

We believe that divine healing is obtained on the basis of the Atonement.

We believe in Christ’s imminent personal return in power and great glory, and in His present and everlasting dominion.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life, they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal punishment.
