Our Beliefs

To know Jesus and make Him known

01

The Bible

We believe the Holy Bible to be the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God

2 Timothy 3:16,17

02

One God

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Isaiah 44:8; II Corinthians 13:14).

The Father

Whose glory is so exceeding bright that mortal man cannot look upon His

face and live, but whose heart was so filled with love and pity for His lost and sin- benighted children that He freely gave His only begotten Son to redeem and reconcile them unto Himself (Exodus 33:20; John 3:16).

The Son

Co-existent and co-eternal with the Father, who, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary took upon Himself the form of man, bore our sins, carried our sorrows, and by the shedding of His precious blood upon the cross of Calvary, purchased redemption for all that would believe upon Him: then, bursting the bonds of death and hell rose from the grave and ascended on high leading captivity captive, that as the great mediator between God and man, He might stand at the right hand of the Father making intercession for those whom He laid down His life John 1:1-3; Job 38:4- 7; Matthew 1:23; Ephesians 2:18).

The Holy Spirit

The third person of the Godhead, the Spirit of the Father shed abroad, omnipotent, omnipresent, performing an inexpressibly important mission upon earth, convicting of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment, drawing sinners to the Savior, rebuking, pleading, searching, comforting, quickening, teaching, glorifying, baptizing and empowering from on high those who yield to His tender ministrations, preparing them for the great day of the Lord’s appearing (1 John 5:7; John 15:26) (Also, 2 Corinthians 13:14; Matthew 28:19; Romans 8:11; John 16:7-14).

03

Jesus Christ

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

1 Timothy 3:16; Romans 3:25,26

04

Evangelism

We believe in evangelistic and missionary fervor and endeavor.

Acts 1:8; Mark 16:15-18

05

Salvation

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

Hebrews 9:22; Jude 24,25

06

Sanctification

We believe that sanctification, holiness and the overcoming life is God’s design for the Church, which is the Bride of Christ.

Ephesians 5:25-27

07

Sexual Purity

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

Hebrews 13:4; 1 Corinthians 6:18; Leviticus 18:1-30

08

Male & Female

We believe that God created mankind as two distinct sexes: male and female and that each person affirms God’s infinite wisdom by living in alignment with their birth sex. 

Genesis 1:26-28; Matthew 19:4-5

09

Marriage

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

Matthew 19:4-6

10

Life has Worth

We believe that since mankind is created in God’s image, human life is of inestimable worth and significance in all its dimensions, from conception to the grave.

Genesis 1:27; Psalm 139:13-14

11

Water Baptism

We believe that water 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 our own new life in Him. 

Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4

12

Communion

We believe that Communion, when shared by believers, witnesses to the saving power of the gospel, to Christ’s presence in His church, and looks forward to His victorious return.
1 Corinthians 11:23-26

13

Baptism in the

Holy Spirit

We believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit as on the day of Pentecost and in 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.

Acts 2:4; Acts 10:46; Acts 19:6; Ephesians 4:11; 1 Corinthians 12:8-11; Galatians 5:22,23

14

Divine Healing

We believe that divine healing is obtained on the basis of the Atonement.
1 Peter 2:24; Matthew 8:17

15

Jesus’ Dominion

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

Acts 1:8; Revelation 1:7;
Daniel 7:14

16

Eternity

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

John 5:28,29; Revelation 20:15
