WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?
We believe in one God. He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), in the son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit). (Deuteronomy 6:4; II Corinthians 13:14; John 1:1)
We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ was the only-begotten son of the Father, and is truly God and truly man. He was born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a vicarious and atoning death for the sins of the world, resurrected bodily for our justification, and now reigns in Glory until all things be put under His feet. (I Timothy 3:16)
We believe in the absolute inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, given by the Holy Spirit without error as He moved upon holy men of old. Furthermore, we believe that the church has no authority to establish doctrine or practice contrary to these same scriptures. (II Timothy 3:16)
We believe that man was made in the image of God and is the crown of creation. He is now, by reason of "the fall", spiritually alienated from his Creator. Apart from God's grace he has no ability to attain to this high calling. (Psalm 8; Ephesians 2:8-9)
We believe that justification is by grace through faith in our Lord's sacrifice on Calvary. (Romans 3:21-24)
We believe in water baptism by immersion in water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. (Matthew 3:11; Matthew 28:18-19; John 14:6)
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit and in the present operation of the nine Gifts of the Spirit and encourage our people to live so that these gifts may be manifest in their lives. (Acts 2:4; Acts 2:38-39; Acts 8:14-17; Acts 10:44-46; Acts 19:1-6; John 13:35; John 15:8, I Corinthians 12:4-10).
We believe that those who are called by the name of Christ should depart from iniquity, understanding that salvation from the penalty of sin only begins the process of redemption. We acknowledge that one work of the Holy Spirit is to create in us the character of Christ. (II Timothy 2:19)
About The Church
We believe in the Priesthood of the believer. That is to say all people born of God have equal status before God and direct access to their Lord. (I Peter 2:5)
We believe that the callings of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher are functional within the body of Christ until the Lord's return. Furthermore, these ministries are gifts to the church for the purpose of equipping the saints for the work of the ministry, that the body of Christ may be edified. (Ephesians 4:11-16)
About The Kingdom
We believe in the literal second coming of our Lord, the literal rule of Christ upon the earth, the resurrection of the regenerate to eternal life and the unregenerate to eternal damnation, and the ultimate victory of the eternal kingdom of God. (Acts 1:9-11; Daniel 12:2; Revelation 22:1-7)
