Statement Of Faith

The Holy Scriptures
We believe the Bible is God-inspired. (2 Timothy 3:16,17)
The Eternal Godhead
We believe that God is Triune: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (2 Corinthians 13:14)
The Fall of Mankind
We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience he fell from perfection. (Romans 5:12)
The Plan of Salvation
We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe on Him. (John 3:16; Romans 5:8)
Salvation through Grace
We believe that we are saved by grace; that is, God's unmerited favor, a gift we do not deserve and could never earn. (Ephesians 2:8)
Repentance and Acceptance
We believe that upon sincere repentance, and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God. (I John 1:9)
Born-Again; or The New Birth
We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is literal and profound. (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)
Water Baptism
We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward sign of the inward work that Christ performs at our salvation. (Matthew 28:19)
Holy Communion; or The Lord's Supper
We believe in the commemoration of the Lord's Supper by the emblematic use of the bread to represent His broken body, and grape juice to represent His shed blood. (I Corinthians 11:24, 25
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Baptism with the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with power; and that this infilling often takes place in a similar manner as in Bible days. (Acts 1:8; 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)
Fruit of the Spirit
We believe that our lives should show spiritual fruit as evidence of our Spirit-filled walk in Christ. (Galatians 5:22)
Gifts of the Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit has spiritual gifts to bestow upon each Christian to enable and enhance ministry to the Church and to the lost. (I Corinthians 12:1-11)
We believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticism. (Philippians 4:5)
Miraculous 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)
Second Coming of Christ
We believe that the return of Jesus Christ to the earth is literal, physical, personal, and imminent. (I Thessalonians 4:16, 17)
Church Relationship
We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with the visible Body of Christ, equally accepting believers from all scripturally compatible traditions as brothers and sisters. (Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:25)
Civil Government
We believe that rulers should be upheld at all times, except in matters that are clearly opposed to the will of God. (Romans 13:1-5)
The Final Judgment
We believe that all shall stand some day before the judgement seat of God, and there receive eternal life or death. (2 Corinthians 5:10)
We believe that Heaven is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers. (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17)
We believe that the lake of fire is the place of eternal torment for all who reject Christ as the Savior. (Revelation 20:10,15)
We believe that soul winning is the most important responsibility of the Church, and of each individual Christian. (James 5:20)
Tithes and Offerings
We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His the Gospel and the work of the Church is by giving of tithes (one tenth) and free-will offerings. (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:7)
