Statement of Faith
We believe in one God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Creator of all things.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died, was buried, was resurrected, ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father and is true God and true man.
We believe the Bible in its entirety to be the inspired Word of God and the infallible rule of faith and conduct.
We believe in the resurrection of the dead, of both the saved and the lost: in the eternal happiness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost.
We believe in the personal salvation of believers through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
We believe in sanctification through the Word of God and by the Holy Spirit, and we believe in personal holiness shown by purity of heart and life.
We believe in divine healing, through faith in the Name of Jesus Christ, and that healing is included in the Redemption.
We believe in the initial salvation experience of being “born again” (Jn. 3:3-6), in water baptism, as a symbol of a believer’s dedication to Christ (Mt. 28:19, Ac. 2:38), in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit as distinct from the New Birth (Ac. 19:1-7), in the gifts of the Spirit (Acts 2:4, 1 Corinthians 12:7-11), and the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). We believe that all of these are available to believers today.
We believe in the Christian’s hope – the soon coming, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the mission of the church as a divine agency of God for world evangelism, as a place of prayer and of worship, and a place for the equipping of God’s people
