What we Believe

The Holy Scriptures

We believe the Bible is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16,17).

 

The Eternal Godhead

We believe God is Triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14).

 

The Fall of Man

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience he fell from innocence and purity (Romans 5:12).

 

The Plan of Salvation

We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, pardoning all who believe on Him (John 3:16; Romans 5:8).

 

Salvation Through Grace

We believe that we have no righteousness and must come to God pleading the righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 2:8).

 

Repentance and Acceptance

We believe that upon sincere repentance, and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God (1 John 1:9).

 

The New Birth

We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a very real one (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20).

 

Daily Christian Living

We believe that it is the will of God that we be sanctified daily, growing constantly in the faith (Hebrews 6:1).

 

Baptism and the Lord's Supper

We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work (Matt. 28:19). We believe in the commemoration of the Lord's Supper by the symbolic use of the bread and juice of the vine (1 Corinthians 11:24, 25).

 

Baptism with the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Baptism with the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with power; and that His infilling is after the same manner as in Bible days (Acts 2:4).

 

The Spirit-Filled Life

We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit daily (Ephesians 4:30-32).

 

The Gifts and Fruit of the Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon the Christian; and that we can and should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life (1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22).

  

Moderation

We believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticism (Philippians 4:5).

 

Divine Healing

We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the physically sick in answer to the prayer of faith (James 5:14-16).

 

The Second Coming of Christ

We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17).

 

Church Relationship

We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with the visible Body of Christ (Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:25).

 

Civil Government

We believe that rulers should be upheld at all times except in things opposed to the will of God (Romans 13:1-5).

 

The Final Judgment

We believe that all shall stand some day before the judgment seat of God, and there receive eternal life or death (2 Corinthians 5:10).

 

Heaven

We believe that heaven is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17).

 

Hell

We believe that hell is the place of  torment for all who reject Christ as the Savior (Revelation 20:10,15).

 

Evangelism

We believe that soul-winning is an important responsibility of the Church (James 5:20).

 

Tithes and Offerings

We believe that the primary method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:7)
