We believe that there is one God, manifested in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Genesis 1:26; Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 13:14
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious atoning death through his shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and his personal return in power and glory.
John 1:14; 3:16;Matthew 4; Luke 4; Hebrews 4:15; 2 Corinthians 5:21
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling at the time of salvation the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. We affirm that the Holy Spirit provides one or more spiritual gifts to all believers, manifesting them as He wills.
We affirm the Bible to be the Holy Spirit inspired, authoritative Word of God and that it is eternally reliable and complete. The Bible is the source of all teaching, training, correction, and instruction. It contains all that is needed for guidance and godliness for practice Christian conduct.
2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21
Mankind is a special creation, made in the image of God. Yet because of the sin of the first man, Adam, all are sinners in need of salvation.
Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 3:15; Romans 5:12-15
Salvation is by grace, through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation comes through personal repentance, belief in the Lord Jesus Christ (justification) and personal acceptance of Him into one’s life as Lord and Savior (regeneration.) Salvation should produce an active lifestyle of loving obedience and service to Jesus Christ our Savior.
Ephesians 2:8-10 ;Romans 10:9-10
Christ’s death paid the penalty for the sins of the entire world, but its benefits only apply to those who accept salvation. All of God’s provisions for His people, including spiritual and bodily healing, are provided for in the atonement.
Isaiah 53:5; 1 Peter 2:24
We believe that those who die without faith in Jesus Christ spend eternity in Hell and those who die with their sins forgiven, through faith in Jesus Christ, spend eternity in Heaven.
We believe that salvation promises us security for eternity, and freedom from the power of sin. However, our shortcomings are a reflection of our still progressing sanctification. The Christian life is filled with trials, tests, and warfare against a spiritual enemy. Therefore, we must remain faithful through all life’s circumstances, depending on the Holy Spirit for wisdom and guidance, and denying our personal desires and passions.
The universal Church consists of all born again believers, Christ being the head of the Church. There is a spiritual unity of all believers through Jesus Christ. The purpose of the Church is to offer worship to God, fellowship, ministry and instruction to its members, and evangelism and service to the world. The goal of the Church is to make disciples of all nations and to present the saints complete in Christ.
The Lords Supper is a commemoration of the death of the Lord and is done in remembrance of Him until His return.
Water Baptism by immersion is the outward sign of what God has already done in a persons life and is a testimony that the person now belongs to Jesus.
Participation in the Lords Supper and Water baptism is for all Christians.
We believe in the literal, bodily return of Jesus Christ to earth.
