What We Believe

God
We believe in the one ever-living, eternal God: infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes and purpose; and possessing absolute, indivisible deity.  This one true God has revealed Himself as Father in creation, through His Son in redemption, and as the Holy Spirit dwelling within us.

 

The Bible
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, a divine revelation from God to man.  We accept the scriptures as the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

 

Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin; that he lived a sinless life, was crucified on Calvary for our sins, and bodily rose from the grave; and that he has been exalted on the throne of God where He is the only mediator between God and man.  We believe that through his death and life we have personal salvation and power for victorious living.

 

Salvation
We believe that all men have sinned and stand in need of redemption, which is obtained through the new birth by faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.  We believe that new birth is experienced by those who appropriate the gospel (death, 
burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ) to their lives by repenting of sins, being baptized in water by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost as promised in Acts 2:39.  We believe the initial evidence of the Holy Spirit indwelling is when one speaks in other tongues as the spirit gives the utterance.  Those being born again of water and spirit become children of God and heirs with Jesus Christ.   (Acts 2, John 3, I Corinthians 15:1-4)

 

The Church
We believe the Church has been "called out" of the world to be a habitation of God through the Spirit.  As the body of  Christ on earth, the church offers hope to mankind.  The church is one body made up of many members, diverse in their gifts and calling of the Holy Spirit.

 

The Second Coming
We believe in the pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ to receive his bride, the church, unto Himself.  At his coming, we believe the dead in Christ will be 
resurrected from the grave.  We believe in Christ's millennial reign upon the earth.
