Statement of Faith

- The Bible is the inspired Word of God and the revealed will of God. 2 Tim.3:16

- There is one true Godhead comprised of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All are co-equal and co-eternal. Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh. John 1:1;14

- Man was created in God's image. By voluntary transgression he fell and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Gen.1:27;3:6-7;Rom.3:22

Salvation for Man

  • Man's only hope of redemption is through the shedding of the Blood of Jesus Christ. On the Cross, Jesus Christ became sin and sickness, thus providing both salvation and healing for all mankind. This salvation comes by believing in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and confessing with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord of your Life. Rom.10:9-10

  • The inward evidence to the believer is the direct witness of the Spirit. The outward evidence to all men is a life of true holiness and love. Rom.8:16;1 Pet.1:15-16

  • Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and not by human works; however, our works are evidence of our faith and will determine our reward in eternity. Eph.2:8-9;Phil.2:12

- Baptism in water is a declaration to the world that a believer has died with Christ and that they have been raise with Him to walk in newness of life. Rom.6:3-4

- The celebration of the Lord's Supper by eating of the bread and drinking of the cup is a remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.Luke 22:19-20

- All believers are entitled to and should expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit; according to the command of Jesus Christ. With this comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry. The Evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is found in speaking with other tonques and spiritual power in public testimony and service.Acts 1:8;2:1-4;38-39;11:44-46;19:1-6;Luke 11:13

- The Church is the Body of Christ. Every believer is an integral part. Rom.12:4-5;1 Cor.12:27                              

- The Blessed Hope is the return of Jesus Christ to gather all His saints to heaven. 1 Thess.4:13-17

- Those who have not accepted the redemptive work of Jesus Christ will suffer eternal separation from the Godhead in hell.Rev.20:15;21:8

- The Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ with His saints will occur on earth as the Scriptures promise. After this there will be a new heaven and a new earth. Rev.20:4;21:1
