Our Beliefs

 

  • We believe that the Bible is inspired by God. It is the infallible and authoritative Holy Word of God (II Timothy 3: 16; Matthew 3: 16, 17; II Peter 1: 19-21; Hebrews 4: 12; I Peter 1: 23-25).
  • We believe in one eternal God revealed in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, who comprise the Trinity (I John 5: 6-8; II Cor. 13: 14; John 3: 16, 17; Matthew 3: 16, 17).
  • We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father where He is interceding for believers, and His imminent and personal return in power and glory (John 10: 30, 58; John 20: 24-29; Mt. 1: 22; Luke 24: 39-43; Romans 5: 8; John 14: 2, 3; Romans 8: 34; I Cor. 15: 3-6; I Tim. 3: 16; Acts 1: 10, 11; I Thessalonians 4: 13-18).
  • We believe that to possess eternal salvation it is essential to receive Jesus Christ and be washed in His redeeming blood since there is no other way by which man can be saved (Acts 4: 12; Hebrews 9: 22; I Peter 1: 18, 19; Ephesians 1: 3-14; Romans 4: 1-9; Romans 5: 1-11; Galatians 3: 22; Romans 3: 19-23; Mt. 25: 34, 41, 46; Luke 16: 19-31; John 14: 1-3; Revelation 20: 11-15).
  • We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit includes the redemption of man, the distribution of spiritual gifts in the body of Christ, the production of fruit by His indwelling presence, and the empowerment of His people to live as God intended under the New Covenant (John 14: 26; I Corinthians 3: 16; I Corinthians 12: 1-11; Luke 11: 13; John 7: 37-39, 14: 16, 17; Galatians 5: 22, 23; I Corinthians 14; Acts 1: 4-8; 2: 1-18, 38-41; 4: 8; 10: 44-47; 11: 16; 16: 7-14; 19: 1-6; Matthew 8: 14-17; Isaiah 53: 5; I Peter 2: 24; James 5: 14-16; I Corinthians 12: 9; Mark 11: 23, 24)
