OUR BELIEFS

1. In the divine inspiration of the Holy Bible (2Ti 3:16, 1Pe 1:23-25, Heb 4:12)

2. That God is a Trinity, meaning, there is one God eternally self-existing in three distinct persons; namely, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost (Isa 48:16, Mt 28:19, 1Jo 5:7).

3. That Jesus Christ is the only begotten and eternal Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as our Intercessor.  (Joh 3:16, Mt 1:20, 23, Ac 4:10, Ac 2:33, 1Ti 2:5)

4. That man was created in the image of God (good, upright, free willed); and that the fall of our first parents brought about the lost condition of the human race. (Ge 1:26-31, 3:1-7, Ro 5:12-21)

5. That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. That the wages of sin is death. That the atonement, through Jesus Christ, is for the whole human race and that salvation is attained only by repentance and faith in Christ’s sacrificial death. (Joh 3:15-17, Ro 3:23, 6:23, Ac 17:30)

6. That justification, regeneration, adoption and the new birth are simultaneous experiences of salvation wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ and by the Holy Ghost. (Eph 2:8)

7. In a life of sanctification and holiness subsequent to the new birth through faith in the blood of Christ, through the Word and by the Holy Ghost. (Ps 34:14, Mt 5:8, 2Co 7:1, 1Th 4:4)

8. That the Baptism in the Holy Ghost is a distinct work of grace received subsequent to the new birth. It is evidenced by divine authority and an insatiable desire to bear witness of the death, burial, resurrection, and glorious power of Christ to save the lost. We feel it noteworthy that recipients spoke in tongues in all three Biblical accounts that the baptism in the Holy Ghost was given. (Ac 1:8, 2:1, 8:12-17, 10:44-48, 19:6)

9. In Spiritual Gifts and Callings by grace and the authority of the Holy Ghost for the perfecting of the saints, the work of the ministry and the edifying of the body of Christ. (1Co 12:1-31, Eph 4:7-16)

10. In water baptism by immersion. All who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. (Mt 28:19)

11. Divine healing is provided for all of humanity in the atonement (Christ’s sacrificial death). (1Pe 2:24)
    
12. In the Lord's Supper and washing of the saints feet. (1Co 11:25-26)
    
13. The giving of tithes and offerings and giving in general. (Mal 3:8-10, Mt 23:23, 1Co 9:6)
    
14. The establishment of the Church which is the living body of the Lord Jesus Christ. It exists to glorify God through holy worship, the edification of the saints and the proclamation of the gospel. (Mt 16:13-19, Heb 12:22-24)
    
15. In the Second Coming of Jesus. Firstly, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away (rapture) the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years. (1Th 4:13-18, Re 14)
    
16. In the sacredness of life, the sanctity of marriage, the priority of the family and the divine order of the home. (1Co 11:3, Heb 13:4)
    
17. In a bodily resurrection: a resurrection of life for the righteous and a resurrection of damnation for the wicked. (Isa 26:19, Da 12:2-3, Mt 25:46, Re 20:6)
    
18. In a final judgment in which the dead will stand before God and be judged according to their works in this life. (Mt 11:20-24, Mk 4:22, Ac 17:30-31, Ro 2:1-16, Col 3:25)
    
19. After death the righteous will inherit heaven and the new earth where they will enjoy endless happiness. The wicked will be condemned to hell where they will receive endless torment without  liberation or annihilation. (Isa 57:17, 66:22-24, Lu 16:19-31, 18:30, 43-48, Ro 2:7-11, 6:22, 8:18023, 1Co 15:24-28, Re 21 and 22)
