What We Believe

  • The Bible, including both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired, infallible Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16-17)
  • There is only one true God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (II Corinthians 13:14)
  • In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • As God’s son, Jesus was both human and divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary. The Lord Jesus was crucified for our sins, died, and was buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven. (John 1:1)  He is alive today, making intercession for us at the right hand of the Father. (Matthew 1:18-25)
  • Man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience fell into sin. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 5:12)
  • All who by faith believe in and receive the Lord Jesus Christ receive eternal life. (John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9)
  • Water baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work of God’s salvation. (Matthew 3:13-17
  • Holy Communion (the Lord’s Supper) is a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation. (Luke 22:19; I Corinthians 11:24-26)
  • The baptism of the Holy Spirit for all believers is a definite endowment of power subsequent to, and separate from salvation. (Acts 2:4)
  • It is God’s will for us to walk in the Spirit, be sanctified daily, draw closer to God and become more like Christ. (Philippians 2:3-5; Galatians 5:16)
  • A final judgment will take place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in a lake of fire. (Rev. 20:11-15)
  • In the fellowship of all believers in Christ  (I John 1:3-7; I Corinthians 1:9) and places a high priority on the gathering of the Body of Christ together to provoke one another to love and good works (Hebrews 10:23-25) It is important for each individual to do his or her part for the whole body, so that every need can be met.
  • Discipleship and training is needed to perfect the saints for the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12). The Church has been called to go out and make disciples.
  • In divine healing. (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17)
  • In the blessed hope that Jesus will rapture His Church prior to His return to earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and meet the Lord in the air and the Christians who are alive will be caught up with them to be with the Lord forever. (I Thessalonians 4:16-17)
  • In the millennial reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for 1,000 years. (Rev. 20:6) At that time many in the nation of Israel will recognize and accept Him as the Messiah, the Savior, who died for them and all mankind. (Isaiah 11)
  • We can look forward to the perfect new heaven and new earth that Christ is preparing for all people, for all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth. “And so shall we forever be with the Lord!” (Revelation 21:1-4)
