statement of faith

  • The Holy Bible ~ We believe in the divine inspiration and inerrancy of the Holy Bible, both the Old and New Testaments. (2 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12)

  • God — We believe in one God revealed in three Persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16, 17; John 17)

  • Christ Jesus, His Divinity and Humanity — We believe that Jesus Christ of Nazareth is God who came in the flesh, bom of the Virgin Mary, and that He is both fully man and fully God. (Luke 1:26-38; John 14:1-3; Acts 2:36; Acts 3:14, 15; Philippians 2:5-11; Ephesians 1:3-15)

  • Holy Spirit — We believe the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity whose purpose in the redemption is to convict of sin, regenerate, sanctify, and empower the repentant believer, guide the believer into understanding the Holy Scriptures, indwell and give gifts to the believers as He wills, that they may minister as Christ would to men. We believe that the manifestations of the Holy Spirit recorded in 1 Corinthians 12:8-11 and the importance of the fruit of the Spirit which empowers the gifts shall operate in the churches today which yield to the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe a believer can be baptized in the Holy Spirit at the moment of regeneration, or anytime subsequent to his regeneration (new birth) experience. We believe that the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is for all believers as promised by John the Baptist, was experienced by the early disciples of Christ, and is evidenced in the lives of many present-day believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. (Luke 11:13; John 7:37-39, 14:16,17; Matthew 3:11; Acts 1:4,5,8; Acts 10:44-47, 19:1-6; Galatians 5:22-23)

  • Man -- We believe that man, in his natural state, is a sinner, without hope, and without God, destined for eternal punishment in Hell. (Matthew 25:41,45; Romans 3:19-23; Galatians 3:22; Ephesians 2:1,2,12; Revelation 20:14,15)

  • Blood Atonement — We believe in the saving power of the Blood of Jesus Christ and His imputed righteousness to all who believe on Him with faith. (Acts 4:12; Romans 4:1-9, 5:1-11; Ephesians 1:3-15)

  • Bodily Resurrection -- We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ and all believers. (Luke 24:39-43; John 20:24-29)
