Beliefs


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 Virgin Birth
Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, fully God, fully man, died on the cross and was raised from the dead three days later (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25).

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 that 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 or 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)
