WE BELIEVE…

  • The Scriptures are inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.

  • There is only one God, revealed in three persons — the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • In the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God’s son, Jesus was both human and divine.

  • Man willingly fell to sin — ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.

  • Every person can have restored fellowship with God through salvation.

  • We believe in, and practice two ordinances:

    • Water baptism by immersion after repenting of one’s sins and receiving Christ’s gift of salvation;

    • Holy communion as a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation.

  • The baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service.

  • The initial physical evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues, as experienced on the day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles.

  • Sanctification initially occurs at salvation and is, not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers become more Christ-like.

  • 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 religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His Son Jesus Christ.

  • A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry serves the church. The Bible teaches that each of us must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, and to build up or edify the body of believers (the church).

  • Divine healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today and is provided for in Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross for our sins.

  • The blessed hope is when Jesus raptures His church prior to His second coming.

  • The millennial reign of Christ will happen when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for 1,000 years.

  • A final judgement 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.

  • Jesus has prepared new heavens and a new earth for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on earth.
