What We Believe

the Bible                            We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all                                                   doctrinal truths. In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible and inerrant. 

                                            (Psalm 19:7-11; 119:89, 105, 130, 160; Proverbs 30:5-6; Isaiah 8:20; Luke 16:31; 24:25-27, 44-45; John 5:39,                                               45-47; 12:48; 17:17; Acts 1:16; 28:25; Romans 3:4; 15:4; Ephesians 6:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 1 Peter 1:23; 2                                                   Peter 1:19-21; Revelation 22:19; Hebrews 4:12)

the Trinity                         We believe in the triune nature of God. We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons:                                                     Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and co-eternal.

                                            (I John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11; Acts 5:3-4                                                           John 15:25)

the

Salvation Experience       We believe all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and are in need of salvation. Salvation has                                                    been provided through Jesus Christ for all men. We believe that we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus                                             Christ; His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of                                               any human efforts. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31;

                                            Hebrews 9:22)

the

Baptism of Holy Spirit     We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the Bible evidence of speaking with other tongues. When                                                  we are born again we receive the Holy Spirit within for character. In the baptism of the Holy Spiritwe receive                                              the Spirit upon for power. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift subsequent to salvation and available to all                                              believers. The evidence that someone has received the Holy Spirit upon is that they speak with other tongues.                                              (Acts 2:38; 1 Corinthians 14:5; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:1-4; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10; Acts 10:44-46; Acts 19:2-6)

the Church.                        We believe the church consists of all those who have received Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.

                                             (Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23; John 17:11, 20-23)

the Resurrection               We believe there shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust.

                                             (Luke 24:36, 39; John 2:19-21, 20:25-29, 21:4; Acts 24:15; 1 Corinthians 15:42, 44; Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21)

the Second Coming          We believe in the personal, visible, imminent return of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ will physically and visibly                                                      return to earth for the second time to establish His Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the                                                          Scriptures.

                                             (Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7

the Sacrements                 We believe in water baptism and the observance of the Lord’s Supper.

                                             (Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4;John 6:48,51,53-57; Luke 22:19,20; 2 Pet. 1:4; 1 Cor. 11:25

Healing                              We believe that healing provided in the redemptive work of Christ and is available to every believer.

                                            (Psalm 103:2-5; Isaiah 53:3-11; Matthew8:16-17; Mark 16:17-18; Acts 8:6-7; James 5:14-16;

                                            1 Corinthians 12:9, 28, 1 Peter 2:24)
