Statement of Faith

We Believe:

1) The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of Holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. The New Covenant as recorded in the New Testament, we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine. (II Timothy 3:16, I Thessalonians 2:13, II Peter 1:21)

2) Our God is One, but manifested in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, being co-equal.(Philippians 2:6) God the Father is greater than all; the Source of the Word. (John 14:28, John 16:28, John 1:14) 

The Son is the Word flesh-covered, the One Begotten, and has existed with the Father from the beginning. (John 1:1, John 1:18, John 1:14) 

The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is eternal. (John 15:26)

3) Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world. (Romans 3:23, Romans 5:1, Romans 3:10, 1 John 3:8) Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the law, and is made operative by Grace through Faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God. (Ephesians 2:8)

4) Man’s first step toward salvation is Godly sorrow that worketh repentance. The new birth is necessary to all man, and when fulfilled produces eternal life. (II Corinthians 7:10, 1 John 5:12, John 3:3-5)

5) Baptism in water is by immersion and is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. (Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:4, Colossians 2:12, Acts 8: 36-39)

6) The Baptism in the Holy Ghost is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ, to those who are believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the new birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of the speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance. (Matthew 3:11, John 14:16-17, Acts 1:8, Acts 2:38-39, Acts 19:1-7, Acts 2:4)

7) The Bible teaches that without Holiness, no man can see the Lord. We believe in the doctrine of Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of Grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of Salvation. (Hebrews 12:14, 1 Thessalonians 5:23, II Peter 3:18, II Corinthians 3:18, Philippians 3:12-14, I Corinthians 1:30)

8) 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 laying on of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and it is the privilege of every member of the church today. (Mark 16:18, James 5:14-20, I Peter 2:24, Matthew 8:17, Isaiah 53:4-5)

9) The Rapture as explained in Acts 1:11 and I Thessalonians 4:16-17 Following the tribulation, Jesus shall return to earth, as King of kings, and the Lord of lords and together with His Saints, who shall be kings and priests.

10) The one who physically dies in his sins without Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the lake of fire and therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or for repentance. (Hebrews 9:27, Revelation 19:20)
