We believe the scriptures are inspired by God, and declare His design and plan for mankind.
We believe there is only one true God, revealed in three persons...Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (this is commonly known as the trinity)
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's son, Jesus was both human and divine.
We believe, though originally good, man willingly fell into sin- ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
We believe every person can have restored fellowship with God through salvation (accepting Christ's offer of forgiveness of sin)
We believe and practice two ordinances: 1) Water Baptism by immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation and 2) Holy Communion (the Lords Supper) as symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.
We believe that baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special gift following Salvation, that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in the New Testament times.
We believe the initial physical evidence of baptism in the Holy Spirit is "speaking tongues" as experienced on the day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles.
We believe sanctification initially occurs at salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer in holy, but also a progressive life long process of separating from evil as believers and continually draw closer to God and become more Christ like.
We believe the church has a mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin.
We believe "the Church" is the body of Christ and consists of the people who throughout time, have accepted God's offer of redemption (regardless of denomination) though the sacrificial death of His son, Jesus Christ.
We believe in divinely called and scripturally ordained minister serves as the leader of the church. The Bible teaches that each believer is committed to reaching others for Christ, fellowshipping together to build up and edify the believers- the church.
We believe divine healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today and is provided for in Christ's atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins).
We believe in the blessed hope- when Jesus raptures His church prior to His return to the earth (second coming). At this future moment in time, all believers who dies will rise from their graves and will meet with the Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive will be caught up with them to be with theLord forever.
We believe a final judgement will take place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judge for their sins and consigned to eternal punishment in the lake of fire.
We believe and look forward to the perfect new heaven and new earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all times 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."
