Statement of Belief

WE BELIEVE that there is One living and true God, eternally existing in the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this Triune God created all, upholds all, governs all, knows all, and is everlasting.

 

WE BELIEVE that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are inspired by God without error and are infallible.

 

WE BELIEVE in God the Father, Who is an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of man; that He answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and gives eternal life to all who call upon Him through Jesus Christ; that God gave operations to the Church; that Jesus Christ has provided offices for the Church; that the Holy Spirit has given gifts to the children of God, manifests through the Believer, and that all these attributes are from the One God, All in All.

 

WE BELIEVE in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, the Word made flesh, and conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a woman as the Law dictates.  He is the Son of man, Son of God, and God the Son.  We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, selfless existence, miracles and teachings, His substitutional atoning death on the Cross, His resurrection from the dead on the third day, and His ascension into heaven.  We believe He makes intercession for His people, the Rapture of the Church, His visible return to the earth, and the final Judgment of the quick and the dead.  He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.  He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to Father but by Him.

 

WE BELIEVE in the Holy Spirit, Who came from the Father at the request of the Son.  He came to convict the world of sin, God's righteousness, and judgment; and He is the only Interpreter of Prophecy and the Scriptures.  He is our Comforter, Teacher and Guide; no one can call Jesus Christ Lord without the Spirit.  We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and that the Holy Spirit manifests Himself through the Believer.  Furthermore, we believe that the Gifts, Fruit and Manifestation of the Spirit are for today.

 

WE BELIEVE that all mankind has been born into sin as the result of Adam's fall; and therefore, has fallen under condemnation.  Therefore, God provided the New Birth for mankind through Jesus Christ our Savior.  We believe that we who are buried with Him by baptism into death; that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.  If we are dead in Christ, we believe we will also live with Him.

 

WE BELIEVE in the universal Church, also known as the Body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the Head.

 

WE BELIEVE that the Lord Jesus Christ gave us three ordinances to the Church: Water Baptism; The Lord's Supper, which is also known as Communion; and the Baptism With The Holy Spirit.

 

WE BELIEVE in Repentance from dead works; Faith toward God; the Doctrine of Baptisms; the Laying of hands; the Resurrection of the dead; and Eternal Judgment.

 

WE BELIEVE God speaks to Believers by the Holy Spirit, gives visions and dreams; and all that is spoken to us through the Holy Scriptures as He intended.
